Judy E. (Eads) Burns 1946-2023

Judy E. (Eads) Burns - age 76 of Gallatin, MO., passed away Thursday morning, March 16th, 2023 in Gallatin. Judy was born on September 30th,1946 to Grover and Dorothy (Moulin) Eads in Jameson, MO. At a very young age, Judy found she was a natural in the kitchen. She spent countless hours in the kitchen helping her mother cook and bake. Growing up, she was an active member of the Jameson Baptist Church. Judy was a graduate of Jameson High School in 1964. After she graduated, she took her first job in the banking business in Kansas City.

When Judy wasn’t working and spending time with her family, she would spend time with her friends at Dulley’s Shop. Just so happens, that’s also where Jerry Burns would spend his time. Jerry and Judy quickly fell head over heels for each other. They would spend time cruising in Jerry’s GTO, which may have even led to a few races. Judy being the caring woman she was, would even have Jerry pick up her siblings to go joyriding in the GTO. On May 17th, 1964 Jerry and Judy were married at the Jameson Baptist Church. After the two were married, Judy came back to Gallatin to work for First National Bank and continued her banking career for another 50 years.

Jerry and Judy bought a small farm outside of Gallatin where they began their family. They had 3 wonderful children: Janet, Gene, and Jason. They spent several years following their kids in multiple endeavors including, sporting events, furthering their education and raising them to be hard working accountable employees. Family was everything to Judy. Becoming a grandmother was one of her greatest accomplishments. She would spend every Sunday in the kitchen working her magic and cooking a large meal for her kids and grandkids to enjoy.

Judy was diagnosed in April of 2019 with cancer. Even when given devastating news, Judy held her head high and continued to show us that beautiful smile that could light up a room. She made sure family traditions were always continued. If there was a great grandchild’s ball game, she was there. If there was a baby shower, she was there. If there was a holiday, there was a family dinner. She did not let cancer hold her down and define her.

Judy was a devoted and loving wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. For anyone who knows Judy, you know, Jerry and her family were her entire world. After Jerry passed, there wasn’t a day that passed by that she didn’t miss Jerry. She talked about him every single day. Judy is no longer fighting, no longer in pain, and no longer missing the love of her life. Judy has been reunited with her life long partner Jerry, and is smiling and looking down on all of us.

Judy was preceded in death by her parents; husband Jerry; brothers Grover Eugene Eads and Michael Lee Eads. She is survived by her children, Janet Rhoades (Larry) of Gallatin MO., Gene Burns (Amy) of Gallatin, MO., and Jason Burns (Tanya) of Gallatin, MO.; six grandchildren, Dennelle Caldwell (Luke) of Altamont, MO., Robert Rhoades (Nicole) of Gallatin, MO., Bradley Rhoades (Kasey) of Gallatin, MO., Ashley Adkinson (Matt) of Kansas City, MO., Dylan Burns (Julie) of Gallatin, MO., and Logan Burns of Kansas City, MO; seven great-grandchildren; sister, Deena Eads (Eric Munson) of Wheeling, MO.; nieces, nephews and other extended family members also survive.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to the Kicking Cancer with Kindness in care of the funeral home. Arrangements entrusted to the care and direction of Stith Funeral Home in Gallatin.

Tech Committee

Scott Fatheree Lot 3162 reported: Midstates fiber will start installation in May 2023. Scott stated it should take about a year to complete the installation. One consideration for Lake Members is the fiber will be run your home at no cost if this is done during the time the main fiber lines are being installed.

You are not obligated to subscribe to the service. Scott reported on several scenarios that might occur during the fiber installation including but not limited to, sprinkler system lines being cut, septic lines if they are shallow may be impacted but this is not expected to be a big issue. Grass may be disturbed during the install but the disturbed areas will be reseeded. He stated fiber is placed on the house side of the road. Scott stated that the fiber line will go to the dam and south around the lake. It will not cross the dam. Scott indicated Midstates has the equipment to bore under driveways. The depth of the bore is 18-24 inches.

Journey to the Holy Land

When Mary Aschbrenner signed on with her sister for a guided tour of Israel, she understood that she would be using different modes of travel including a long flight to Tel Aviv and a 1 ½ hour bus ride to Jerusalem . . . but A CAMEL? Sure enough. In the background behind Mary and her four-legged ride is the famous Dome of the Rock on Temple Mount. Israel is about the size of New Jersey with sacred and historic locations everywhere. Mary’s other picture is of the tomb of Jesus at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Among the many inspirational sights included in her exciting trip were Bethlehem, The Wailing Wall, Masada, and the Via

Dolorosa which was the ancient path walked by Jesus to his crucifixion. The huge stones in the Via Dolorosa are the originals – over two-thousand years old. Mary was surprised at how hilly the countryside - not as flat as she imagined. (Think in terms of Sermon on the Mount, The Mount of Olives, and Mount Sinai). It was especially hilly in the Jerusalem area which means the camel wasn’t such a bad idea after all.

PWSD #3 OPEN MEETING: February 21, 2023

CALL TO ORDER

Kyle Parkhurst, President (2023), called the meeting to order at 4:15pm which was held at the water plant. Members in attendance were Jeffrey Speaker (2025) and Heather Lund (2024). Harlan Horst (2023) and Mark Closterman (2024) were unable to attend. Also in attendance were Gary King, Superintendent, and Diane Hulett, Clerk.

APPROVAL OF MINUTES

Heather Lund made a motion to approve the minutes of the January 17, 2023 Board Meeting. Jeffrey Speaker seconded All members were in favor; motion carried.

PUBLIC COMMENT

There was no public comment.

OLD BUSINESS

Gary provided the board with the following updates on the water plant upgrade: there is a leak in the roof above the wall which separates the plant and lab area which Bartlett&West has been notified about; the dropped ceiling in the lab area is now complete with the office and hallway left to do; the Open House held on February 3, 2023 was well attended with nothing but positive feedback given on the new plant.

A bid from North MO Satellite & Security for the security system was submitted for review. The item was tabled so Kenny DeWitt can attend next month’s meeting to answer questions on the system.

NEW BUSINESS

Financial Report:

The financial reports and bills were reviewed and discussed. Jeffrey Speaker moved to approve the January financial reports as submitted and approve the bills and transfers. Heather Lund seconded. All members voted to approve; motion carried.

Due to the recent retirement of Roger Barker as Water Superintendent, the need to update the district bank accounts was discussed. A motion was made by Heather Lund and seconded by Jeffrey Speaker to remove Roger Barker from all bank accounts and add Gary King, plus create a new debit card and cancel the old one. All voted to approve; motion carried.

The cost to asphalt the drive once the plant upgrade is complete was discussed. Bartlett&West will only allow $10,000 to be paid out of the construction contingency to go toward driveway repairs. The board requested that Gary inquire if the funds would be released to the district to put toward repairs at a future date.

Gary informed the board about the need for aluminum scaffolding to be installed on top of the filter units to provide a safe walkway to wash off the settling tubes. Jeffrey Speaker made a motion to purchase walk planks from Associated Scaffolding at a cost of $392 each. Heather Lund seconded. All voted in favor; motion approved.

DISCUSSION

Superintendent Report:

Gary reported that due to learning from our supplier of long lead times with brass, he recently placed an order to stock up on supplies since the inventory was low. He also reported that two leaks were repaired last week with no problems. Gary also noted that the chemical feed pumps are not working properly so D&F Services has ordered rebuild kits to see if that will correct the problem.

Kyle Parkhurst, President, announced the next meeting would be March 21, 2023 at the water plant. The meeting was adjourned at 5:20pm.

Respectfully Submitted, Jeffrey Speaker

Gallatin Theater League Excels with Addams Family

When it was announced that the Gallatin Theater League would do a production of The Addams Family, it sounded like a perfect fit. The production was immediately sold out with many Association Members buying tickets. Comedy had always been the specialty of this immensely talented group. Anticipation was and high and the audience was, once again, impressed with the extraordinary level of talent in the GTL. The group never disappoints. Cast was: Dimitri Dickerson, Jackie Nichols, Erin Stith, Emily Miller, Bobbie Sink, Phil Barnard, Jeremy Dungy, Doug Nichols, Emily Smith, and John Augenstein with plenty of help from the capable production crew.

We also discussed the possibility of getting bids for what it would cost to put small shelters behind clubhouse to be used for the fall wine festival and for members to use for picnicking or parties.

The meeting was then adjourned.

Present: Flint & Mary Hibler (chair), Campground Managers; James Funk; Mike Booth; Charles Sudduth; Randall Davidson; George Eshnaur, board contact; Michelle Sullivan, guest (joining campground committee, will go through board approval at April board meeting). Not Present: Kathy Price; Jeff Sprague Meeting commenced at 7:01 pm. Mary advised, as of today, there are 30 empty spaces, 20 in campground #1 and 10 in campground #2. Thirteen members were on the waiting list and have filled spots, but there are still around 30 empty spaces. Three have committed to an additional camp space and with ruling in rule book, that only can add these if no camping list exists, which it does not at this time.

Discussion/Business:

Discussion on Phase 1 of CG electrical. Coming along and looks good. Need clarity on how the rest of the phases will roll out. Connecting with lake director on this.

The committee decided to hold off on electing campground committee officers until the next committee meeting in April.

Another goal of this committee is to further better communication with fellow campers and the committee members and to have a meet and greet. This is especially important because there being some new campground members this season. This will also be an opportunity to collect ideas/feedback on items that should be part of the 3-5-year campground strategic plan. Can Condo Control help with this? Does Condo have the ability to create a communication list for those members who are in the CG?

Discussion on rewording campground rules/regulations in the handbook to express that anything concerning camp spaces that has been added cannot be removed (i.e., gravel, landscaping timbers/railroad ties, etc.) Although RV Ports and decks are not included in this except if member utilizing camp space

is delinquent in their VVA dues and/or camping fees.

Discussion on the trash dumpsters in the campgrounds. Non-CG members are using the bins. Can that be stopped? Discussion about putting a fence/structure around the dumpsters to make it more visually pleasing.

George advised the committee of Doug Winter being elected by the board as BOD President. New board members include Jeremy Lillig, Tom Rice and Terry Nibarger. Troy L. resigned and Tony G. took his spot for the reminder of Troy’s term (ends March 2024).

Meeting concluded at 8:00pm CST. CG committee is trying to find a day and time that is consistent so all committee members can be present. The next meeting will be after the April board meeting. Date and time to follow.

Campground Committee Zoom Meeting on 3/30/23 at 7:00pm

Present: Flint & Mary Hibler (chair), Campground Managers; James Funk; Kathy Price; Mike Booth; Charles Sudduth; Michelle Sullivan; Bob Gates; and Denice Ferguson— all guests (joining campground committee, will go through board approval at April board meeting). Not Present: Mike Booth; Randall Davidson; Jeff Sprague; George Eshnaur, board contact.

Discussion/Business:

• We talked about the electrical upgrade that is being worked on in Campground 1. We have decided to hold off on purchasing the additional materials needed until money is in the account from the special assessment that was voted on during the Yearly Board Meeting. It makes sense to get the water back on and let the campers use the campground for this summer without power disruption or construction going on. We will look at the finances during the next few meetings to see what a good date will be to start back up with the upgrade. The water should be back on next week and will be tested at that point.

• We talked about buying material now while prices have lowered a little bit, but we are going to wait until the next Campground Committee Meeting to look at the budget and what those costs will be. At this point, we will know more about the occupancy in the campgrounds as well as what funds are available from the special assessment. We have room to store the products if we decide to move forward with that plan.

• We currently have 23 open spots in Campground 1 and 12 open spots in Campground 2. We are going to put some ads in the paper to create some excitement around getting a spot in the campground now for the 2023 Camping Season. We are thinking about an open house type event to tour through the campgrounds to get some additional campers in both campgrounds.

• There is a small RV Port that was given to Campground 1 that we are going to use for shelter over some picnic tables to have as a central meeting point for campers. The Committee will decide the location during the next meeting.

• During the Electrical Upgrade construc-

tion, there are some trenches that were dug close to the campsites. The Committee is looking at purchasing some base rock to put at the campsites for the campers to use filling in any muddy areas. Most of those will have to be spread by hand by the campers, but we can look at a volunteer day to help with campers that need assistance.

• We have some fencing available to put around the dumpster at Campground 1 to try and control that area better. This will be done on 4/29 as a volunteer day and will include a safety check of the playground equipment to ensure it is safe for people to use. We will also create a list of what needs to be done to address any maintenance issues that are at both of the campgrounds. We will have another volunteer day in May to get those items completed at both Campgrounds.

• Flint is going to work with the contractors at Campground 1 to produce a map of the water lines and the electrical lines.

• We are working on a Campground Mission Statement as well as a Strategic Plan to present to the Board of Directors. We are going to cover the options at the 5/7/23 Campground Committee Meeting.

We currently have been doing Zoom Meetings but will do in-person meetings Starting 5/7/23 for the next 6 months. We will reassess at that point to see if we resume the Zoom meetings then.

We are working on the Sewer upgrade costs to look at what the next steps are and timing around those upgrades. The bath house at Campground 2 was rotting on the outside and we spent funds to make the outside maintenance free going forward. We will address the bath house at Campground 1 after the Electrical and Sewer opportunities are addressed.

We talked about the Committee Members being nominated to be Officers of the Campground Committee. We selected James Funk as the Chairman, Randall Davidson as the Secretary, Michelle Sullivan as Co-Treasurer and Kathy Price as Co-Treasurer.

We have set the next meetings for 5/7/23, 6/10/23, 7/8/23, 8/12/23, 9/9/23, 10/14/23.

The meeting adjourned at 8:15 pm

come. DNR indicated dirt should be added to the end the lagoon and this has been completed.

We will be doing chip and seal for 6.1 to 6.3 miles of roads around the lake. The stockpile of material will be at the silt ponds on the south end of the lake. We will need 30 loads of material and we will begin seeing this come in in the next week.

Jeff reported we have trimmed trees in Campground 2 and the pool has been drained and cleaned in preparation for a Memorial Day opening. We will need to do some painting before the pool opens.

Jeff also reported we are working on anchoring the needed buoys and the swim zone buoys. Cassie is finishing the Wake buoys and they will be installed. Jeff stated we will set the buoys and then take a GPS reading so we will know exactly where they should be located if they shift.

Approval Of Financial Statements

Doug Winter made a motion that the Financial Statements be approved as presented. Seconded by Terry Nibarger; motion passed unanimously.

Guest Time

Three guests were on the agenda for this meeting. These included: Brett Bush, Lot 324 who presented the want and need to establish a Fishing Management Committee to help with monitoring stocking of fish in the lake as well as review and standardize the length limits etc. Motion was made by George Eshenaur and seconded by Tony Gronniger to establish a Fishing committee. Members of this committee will be Shawn Hepinstall, Gary Buck, Troy Knight and Jim Powers are suggested by Brett Bush and approved by the motion. Motion passed unanimously.

Second Guest was Beckett Depriest Lot 58 who was following up on a Ripple Bin glass recycling project he had presented as part of his Eagle Scout project. A free ripple glass collection bin is very small and would not work well. Beckett presented the cost of going with a bigger bin. This would be a $5000+ outlay for VVA which is not budgeted at this time. President Doug Winter let membership know this would have to be voted on and the expense would need to be budgeted. Doug offered to put Beckett in touch with a person he knows who does both glass and aluminum recycling. Doug also suggested that a Survey be done to see what the level of interest in participation is with VVA owners.

Third Guest was Jackie Leslie Lot 2087 who was seeking clarification for what kind of shed could be put on a lot. They are experiencing a lot of upkeep time and cost with their storage shed. Jackie presented information from a manufacturer she was interested in using. This will be looked at by the Building Committee.

Board Discussion

Allan Slavin, brought up discussion of a handbook change to page 21 of the current handbook. He suggested a change in verbiage from Hard Surface Driveways to All Driveways.

Also discussed was the timing of the change in number of watercrafts allowed with a lot purchase. After 9/22 a new lot owner is limited to 2 watercraft. A motion was made to change the verbiage in the handbook by Tom Rice and was seconded by Jeremy Lillig. Motion passed unanimously.

Adjourn

Tony Gronniger moved to adjourn to Executive Session at 4:00pm to discuss legal, personnel, and Board organizational matters. Allan Slavin seconded and the motion passed by all board members. Meeting was adjourned at 4:00 pm.
