VVA Board of Directors Monthly Meeting

Call to Order

Board President Marvin McNabb, lot 28, called the meeting to order, held in the upper level of the Clubhouse, at 2:00pm. Board members present were: Doug Winter, lot 46; Mike Booth, lot 2380; Allan Slavin, lot 181; George Eshnaur, lot 505; Celeste Armanees, lot 62; Troy Lesan, lot 576. Marvin McNabb led in prayer. Jeff Ferguson, Managing Director, led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Approval of Minutes

Troy Lesan suggested two changes to the Sept. ‘22 Board meeting minutes: The first was to add that lot #675 requested a 2nd buoy on their lot, due to close boat traffic on their point. The Board approved this request. The last change was to correct wording that the Strategic Planning Committee needs “new and existing Board members” should instead say “new and existing VVA members”. A motion was made by Allan Slavin to approve the corrected Sept. ‘22 Board meeting minutes. Seconded by Celeste Armanees; minutes were approved.

COMMITTEE REPORTS: Handbook Committee

Celeste Armanees reported: No items to report this month.

Finance Committee

Doug Winter reported: The Finance Committee met & reviewed the Financial Reports for the first three quarters of 2022. We expect the Lake to outperform the budget for the year.

Dredge operation: The Finance Committee proposes the $42,000 reclaimed earnings along with the budgeted amount be used to repair the dredge. Cost to repair the dredge is estimated $78,000.

Campground electrical: There are now 3 bids to replace the electrical grid in both Campgrounds. The Finance Committee proposes that VVA should loan the monies needed for this electrical upgrade to the Campground at a 6% interest rate.


Accounting changes: We are moving from the current company we use (Westbrook CPAs) to another company (UHY Advisors) starting November 1st. We have also changed starting October 1st to a new payroll processing company. Both these changes will be a considerable savings to the Association.

Strategic Planning Committee

George Eshnaur reported: Kenny Southwick has resigned as Chair of this committee. We want to thank Kenny for his many years of service on this committee. Tony Gronniger has graciously accepted the interim Chair position, until a permanent Chairperson is named. Anyone interested in joining the Strategic Planning Committee, please email:

George also reported that we will continue to use the Strategic Plan that this Committee introduced in 2020, to guide VVA’s direction & actions. So after the committee has been convened, they will utilize the 2020 Strategic Plan to determine what has been accomplished & what remains as action items. The committee will work with the new Lake Director, Jeff Ferguson.

Activities Committee

Celeste Armanees reported: The Fishing Tournament was a success with 30 people participating; proceeds will be used to restock the lake. The Fall Festival held October 8th drew approximately 150 people and also was a successful event. Upcoming event: The Halloween Trunk-or-Treat will be held Saturday, October 29th at 2pm; costumes are welcome but there will not be a costume contest this year.

Building Committee

Allan Slavin reported: In the past month, the committee has received & reviewed 23 Building Permits—including 2 for houses.

Fire Department

Tony Gronniger reported: The Fire Department meeting included both the Fire Department members & members of Maintenance Department present. The Fire Department’s Chili Cook-Off will be held on Saturday, November 5th at 5pm.

Campground Committee

Mike Booth reported: The committee is planning for the electrical system upgrade.

Mike also reported there is a Halloween gettogether on Saturday, October 22nd at 10am in Campground #1; all are invited.

Lake Committee

Troy Lesan reported: The committee was on the water to check compliance, after letters were sent out to lot owners regarding noncompliance. The committee plans to go out once more this fall, to check our Zebra Mussel monitor devices.

Infraction Committee

Mike Booth reported: The committee met & reviewed 35 infractions, and dismissed 1 infraction. The committee is seeking at least 2 additional members to add to our current 5 members. If interested, please e-mail:

Dredge Committee

Doug Winter reported:

Dredge: The committee met & discussed that the dredge has broken down. There is money in the budget to repair the dredge. For removal of silt, the committee has received 2 estimates from outside Dredge Companies. Based on these estimates, it is more cost-effective for us to continue to do our own silt removal vs. outsourcing it.

Beach improvement: A plan will be submitted next week to improve the beach bathrooms, which gracious members of the Dredge Committee have volunteered their labor to fix, using materials provided by the Association.


Jeff Ferguson (Managing Director) reported: Condo software: The Office will be transitioning to Condo, a new software package for HOAs (Home Owners Associations). This software package is a major step forward for the Office, because prior to converting to QuickBooks accounting software a year ago, all record-keeping at the Office was kept manually—everything was hard copy, carbon copy, shuffling & filing of papers. Jeff stated that with Condo, VVA members will be able to have a Condo app on their phone, where they can see an events calendar, activities, announcements, e-sign documents, pay online, etc. Timeline: On Nov. 1st, the Office will be moving from QuickBooks desktop to QuickBooks on-line. After this transition is completed, we will work on the QuickBooks/

2022 Fall Festival

Saturday, October 9, featured another great Lake Viking event from the Activities Committee. The date was originally slated as a Beer & Brats Festival. Then wine tasting crept into the picture and became a larger presence, and finally, some of the volunteers and vendors went the extra mile with some extraordinary decorations, so the general consensus was a renaming of the event to the 2022 Fall Festival. As always, this regular October event at Lake Viking highlights the beauty of autumn which is all around us and was very much in evidence with the decorations. The event featured several pavilions with different wines and crafts for sale and a center area for a bonfire. Thanks to the Levi Garrison and Sons Micro-Brewery from nearby Hamilton, who were once again present at the event. And thanks to Windy Winery of Stewartsville and especially to Manos Wine with co-owner Kyle Rensenhouse donating several selections of wine and a copious supply of white champagne. And as always, hats off to the Activities Committee for a really well-staged event that was themed around the beauty of autumn. Viking Valley Association Ph: 660-322-9001
4 October 2022
The Fall Festival decorations by Cassie and Logan Martin helped celebrate the beauty of autumn. Tent kiosks like this one set up by David and Dustin Hibler, featured crafts and wine.

Thanks to Manos Wine

once again to Kyle Rensenhouse, co-owner of Manos Wine for his generous donation to the Lake Viking Fall Festival. Kyle, an Association Member, saw to it that the event was well-stocked with wine and white champagne. Manos Wine is a family owned business named after Kyle’s grandmother, and the company’s specialty is the custom bottling. Manos buys wine in bulk from vineyards around the world and bottles the different varieties – 17 products at present – at their facility in Kansas City. They can do custom or specialty bottling for corporate events, special occasions, or weddings, and they have their special collection lines. Among their artesian series selections are bottles of wine from professional sports teams as well as colleges and also Holidays, MGM Movies and much more. You can literally spend hours looking at all the possibilities on their website at My personal favorites are the bottles with the scenes from the Kansas City Plaza and of course the beautiful Lake Viking bottles that are always on sale at the Lake Viking Marine. With Christmas around the corner, who knows? Check out and thanks again to Manos for their support of the VVA Activities Committee.

The Class of 57

The Class of 57 was a big hit for Country Music mainstays the Statler Brothers. The song was recorded in 1972. Granted 1972 and certainly 1957 were before many readers were born, but the song still gets plenty of airtime on Country Classic radio stations. It was a clever nostalgia laden song with the following lyrics: Tommy’s selling used cars; Nancy’s fixing hair, Harvey runs a grocery store and Margaret doesn’t care. . . Yes, class of 57 had its dreams. It’s a great old song. So, here is a Class of 57 picture of Association Member Shirley Leakey and a couple of classmates, Rosalie Prothero (in center: she actually “fixed hair” like Nancy in the song) and Barbara Still (right). Consider this as a Class of 57 update via Braymer Missouri. Shirley and her classmates have religious-

ly attended the Braymer Homecoming Parades over the years. Shirley was a bank Vice-President at Braymer for years and she remembers, dashing outside her door onto Main Street, each year, for a good view of the parade. Rosalie actually claims to have attended every homecoming parade (except one) since 1957 . . . and she is apologetic for the one she missed! The parade, like many small town events, has dwindled over the years, but don’t blame the Class of 57. They have faithfully attended. It’s a great group and as the lyrics of the song explain the class of 57 had its dreams. They’ve also done pretty good in the hometown loyalty department.

The wacky and backwards thinking inhabitants of this town—men, women, children and animals—all played by our two skillful transformative actors, Doug Nichols and Phil Barnard, who must change parts at a rather breakneck speed and use inventive voice work. These Characters invite you to a place where books like Huckleberry Finn and Romeo and Juliet are to smutty for the library shelves and the Lions club is too liberal in this humorous and cringe-worthy look at small town Texas life.

Kyle Parkhurst, President (2023), called the meeting to order at 4:00pm. Due to the number of people attending, the meeting location was changed to the Viking Valley Clubhouse, lower level. Members in attendance were Jeffrey Speaker (2025), Harlan Horst (2023), and Heather Lund (2024). Mark Closterman (2024) was unable to attend. Also in attendance were Roger Barker, Water Superintendent, Gary King, Operator, Diane Hulett, Clerk, Geoff Tavelli and Jim Rinner with Bartlett & West


Jeffrey Speaker moved to approve the minutes of the August 16, 2022 Board Meeting. Harlan Horst seconded. All members were in favor; motion carried.


There was no public comment.


Geoff Tavelli and Jim Rinner gave a status report on the new water plant. Finishing touches to the building are almost complete and HVAC work is still ongoing. The raw/fresh water lines have been connected, a new utility pole with transformer has been set by Farmer’s Electric, the entrance apron was recently poured, and electrical work should start on 9/26. Due to ongoing supply chain issues, and concerns by Bartlett & West that the electrical disconnect panel would not arrive on time, Jim Rinner bought and shipped a used panel to have on hand. The plant startup date is now tentatively scheduled for the second week of November.

Roger gave an update on the Goose Ct water line addition. The district is waiting for clarification to be made to the deed regarding an easement before proceeding. VVA approved the installation of a fire hydrant on the south side of the water main to be completed at the same time as the line extension. Decker Construction will bill VVA directly for the work related to the hydrant.

Bank signature cards were updated to reflect the recent change in director.


Financial Report:

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

Propane bids were submitted for review. Harlan Horst made a motion to accept the bid from Landes Propane followed by a second from Heather Lund. All voted in favor; motion approved.

The bid for audit services was submitted. A motion was made by Harlan Horst and seconded by Jeffrey Speaker to accept the bid from Kenney Hales, CPA, for the 2022 audit. All members were in favor; motion carried.

A new uniform policy was discussed since the current contract with Cintas has been canceled as of January 2023. More information will be presented at the next meeting.

DISCUSSION Superintendent Report:

Roger reported that the leak discovered over Labor Day which resulted from a rock puncturing a 4” water line was recently repaired. He also informed the board that Travis Toney has completed his 90 day probationary period and both Travis and Gary passed their certification tests. Gary is now a B Operator and Travis is a D. Both also have DSII classification with regard to the distribution system.

Condo connections. Note: Jeff asked all VVA members who aren’t already receiving a monthly e-mail from the Office (e.g. monthly Board meeting Agenda) to provide their e-mail addresses to the Office, as this will be required to access the Condo app on your phone. Please send your email address to: Vs. The existing list of members’ email addresses will be automatically uploaded into the Condo system.

Help Wanted (part-time): The Office is looking for a Customer Service person. If you or someone you know is interested, please have them contact the Office & complete an application.

Re-stock fish in lake: 2,500 walleye will soon be stocked in the lake. This is funded via proceeds from the Activities Committee’s recent Fishing Tournament.

Maintenance/upkeep: Jeff stated that we will be doing one more zero-turn mow around the lake. We will also be trimming trees that are impeding vision in the Three Tubes area. Also, Goose Court will have a bulldozer working on construction of a gravel road for those 3 lots. Roads: We have salt & sand already on-hand for winter road needs.


Doug Winter made a motion to approve the Financial Statements. Seconded by Troy Lesan; motion passed.


Dale Canino, lot #375 & 376 was present to appeal an infraction she received for 3 of her grandchildren being in the water at the beach without a life jacket. She appealed to reduce the fine to $150 total, instead of the $450 she was charged = 3 children x $150 per infraction. Troy Lesan stated that we as a Board hesitate to undermine our Safety staff’s judgment in issuing these fines as our VVA Handbook requires. However due to the unusual circumstance, Troy made a motion to reduce the fine from $450 to $300. Seconded by Allan Slavin; motion passed.

Robert Walton, lot #217 presented his outline of a plan for a restaurant at Lake Viking—e.g. the Association could construct a building for a Restaurant, which VVA would then lease to a selected Restaurant operator. For maximum business, the restaurant would be open to Lake Members & the general public. After considerable discussion on the profitability & logistics (including septic issues), Allan Slavin made a motion to create an ad hoc (temporary) Restaurant Committee to look into a possible restaurant at Lake Viking. Seconded by George Eshnaur; motion passed.


Open seats on the Board in March: Board President Marvin McNabb

reminded everyone that at the Annual Meeting in March, members will vote to elect 3 Board members. Current Board members whose terms expire in March are: Marvin McNabb, Mike Booth, Celeste Armanees. The Nominating Committee is now accepting applications from any VVA members interested in running for a seat on the Board of Directors.

Campground Fees for ’23 are being discussed. It was suggested that current fees be the base + add an assessment to finance the new electrical system in Campgrounds. The upgrade of Campground bathhouses will be paid using the Campground’s retained earnings.

New Committee: Jeff Ferguson requested we establish a stand-alone Technology Committee to research, recommend, and implement any needed technical upgrades for our hardware/software needs & training. This committee would ideally include an IT network person & a software person & a website/social media person. A motion was made by Doug Winter to establish a Technology Committee. Seconded by George Eshnaur; motion passed.


Allan Slavin moved to adjourn to Executive Session at 2:58pm to discuss legal, personnel, and Board organizational matters. Mike Booth seconded; motion passed. Meeting was adjourned at 2:59 pm.

Watch For Deer!

Colonel Eric T. Olson, superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, reminds drivers that deer are more active and create hazards for Missouri motorists this time of year. Drivers are urged to remain alert. If you strike a deer, move your vehicle to a safe location and call 9-11 or *55 on a cell phone and report it. Drivers are reminded that an attempt to avoid striking a deer could result in a more serious crash involving oncoming traffic. Try to remain calm. Overreacting usually leads to more serious traffic crashes. As soon as you see a deer, the best course of action is to reduce your speed gradually while watching other traffic around you. Other drivers may be doing the same, so be sure to pay attention and always wear your seat belt.

Rural areas are not the only place where deer/ vehicle strikes occur. Drivers in urban areas of the state should watch for deer as well. When you see a deer, slow down and proceed with caution. Deer often travel in groups--stay on guard after a close call or when you see a single deer. Natural features also affect deer movement. In areas where there are streams or wooded corridors surrounded by farmland, look for more deer to cross roadways. At night, watch for deer eyes to reflect your headlighs, which could give you more time to react to their presence. Remember that deer behavior changes due to mating season, which may cause an increase in sightings and roadway crossings. Hunting and crop harvesting may result in these animals being in places they aren’t usually seen.

Last year, drivers in Missouri experienced 3,779 traffic crashes where deer-vehicle strikes occurred. One deer strike occurred every 2 hours and 18 minutes in the state. In these crashes,

there were three fatalities and 420 people were injured. The majority of deer strike crashes occur in October and November each year, with the largest number taking place in November. Although deer strikes can occur at any time, most occur during the 6-6:59 a.m. and 6-8:59

p.m. timeframe.

Too many people die in traffic crashes each year in Missouri. The choices you make when you’re behind the wheel matter. Make good choices, so you’ll never have to say, “If I could just go back Viking Valley Association Ph: 660-322-9001
