Brian Snyder Elected Trustee Brian Snyder of Summit, New Jersey was elected to a three year term on the Board of Trustees effective January 1, 2011. Prior to his election to the Board of Trustees, Brian served on the %RDUGRI*RYHUQRUVDQGWKH0HPEHUVKLS0DUNHWLQJ&RPPLWWHHIRUÂżYH\HDUVZRUNHG on the Ad Hoc Committee to research membership dues and was a member of the 2010 Nominating Committee. Brian and his wife Debbie own a home in Lake Naomi and have held Club Membership since 2006. Brian and Debbie have three children, Thomas age 11, Lauren age 9 and Nicholas age 7. Brian spent several summers here in the 70’s and 80’s when his parents had a house on Beech Spring Drive and then Redwood Terrace. Brian was a lifeguard for Lake Naomi from 1985 through 1988. Brian and Debbie met each other during these lifeguarding days as Debbie was also a lifeguard in a nearby community. Brian has worked as the Managing Director for Canaccord Adams, Senior Managing Director for Bear Stearns and Treasurer for the Cub Scout Pack 363. When asked – What is your primary reason for desiring to serve as a Board of Trustee Member? Brian answered, “I have a love of our club, and a deep appreciation for the way it functions. My desire to serve is only because I would like to help in the decision process. As a husband and as a father of a young family, I would be representative of a growing percent of our membership base. “

This fact many of you know but do you know the idea to have a Winter Festival was from a Member of the Membership/Marketing Committee? Did you know that the Membership/Marketing Committee compiled a list of winter activities that they thought would be fun to do at Lake NaomiTimber Trials? The Committee also decided to invite past Temporary Members to attend this fun weekend so they can see that the Winter at LN-TT has lots to offer in addition to the nearby Ski Resorts. The Committee decided to ask local Real Estate Agencies and Builders to sponsor this event. The Committee also thought that this would be a good time to invite media professionals from the metropolitan areas to witness this weekend. The Winter Festival success far exceeded the Committee’s vision. First came the builders‌.Richard Henry Construction, Oak Ridge Construction, Rinehimer Construction and Martin Homes all agreed to be platinum sponsors. Lake Naomi Real Estate, Century 21 Real Estate and Baxter Real Estate were also sponsors. Thanks to their generosity the Club was able to add events. Then came the Management Team.

The stories you shared, the smiles you radiated, the friends you brought, the fellowship you extended and the ideas you bring is what makes the Lake Naomi Club a Platinum Club Community and the best place to work!

Pre-Season Tennis Court Availability With the Lake Naomi Club Tennis Center courts opening for weekend use in early May, we often get questions about how Members can utilize the courts during the times the Pro Shop is not open during the mid week and late in the day on weekends. A number of the Lake Naomi Tennis Center courts will be made “available for walk on playâ€? from April 30th – June 24th. The available courts may be played as “walk onâ€? all day (8:30 AM until dark) midweek and after 1:30 PM on weekends after the Pro 6KRSKDVFORVHG0HPEHUVVKRXOGUHIHUWRWKHSRVWLQJRQWKH3UR6KRSGRRUWRÂżQG which courts are “availableâ€? and must record their usage in the log on the podium next to the posting.

You must tell them your full name and boat number and that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re registering to race. This is the norm for sailboat racing as it is the only way the Race Committee can track all participants including WKHLUVWDUWVDQGÂżQLVKLQJRUGHUIRUWKH dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scoring.

Community Center Pool Reminders

Please consider your fellow Members when utilizing the aquatic facilities at the Community Center and adhere to the following guidelines: * Please shower before entering the pool especially after working out or working up a sweat from the sauna and/or steam room. * NO ONE under age 16 may be in the hot tub area. * Please turn off the Steam room and turn down the heat for the Sauna if no one else is using them when you exit. * Please use the entrance ramp for walking into the pool rather than a play area. * Children may not hang and swing from the ramp handrails. This places unnecessary stress on the rails and is a very dangerous activity for children to partake in. * The swim platform is intended for small children to have a shallow water area. This is not an area for adults or larger children who can swim. It is not meant for â&#x20AC;&#x153;rough housing.â&#x20AC;? * Children who cannot swim must be closely supervised (in the water or at the waterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s edge) by a responsible adult. * Flotation devices must be attached so children can not fall out or off of them. * Food is not permitted in the pool area. Only closed lid containers may be used for water. * Lap lanes are meant for lap swimming. When there are multiple swimmers, please be willing to share lanes. Swimmers â&#x20AC;&#x153;splittingâ&#x20AC;? a lane should try to swim with swimmers of a similar ability or swimming pace. * When â&#x20AC;&#x153;splitting a laneâ&#x20AC;? resting is OK but should not be done in the middle of a lap. Please rest on the side of the pool out of the way of other swimmers. * Three or more persons in a lane can â&#x20AC;&#x153;circle swimâ&#x20AC;? to accommodate multiple swimmers. Please communicate well with all the swimmers in your lane so everyone is on the same page or in this case, swimming in the same direction, at the same pace, etc.

Now thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment! Meg Whitney was one of 5 sailors determined to sail through the fog that day. John Kaltenthaler is the only remaining sailor from the original group. John and his brother Henry sailed their motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Duster on that foggy Labor Day and won because, as John remembers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they knew where all the stumps were.â&#x20AC;? The original sailing group was known to be a friendly and social bunch. The after sailing parties included activities such as square dances, games and treasure hunts - and everyone from teens to adults were welcome. Meg Whitney sailed her Duster in practically every race, every summer for 60 years.

Meg Whitney

&RQWLQXHGIURPSDJH

Sailing continued to be her passion until she was stricken with brain cancer in May of 2008. After battling her cancer for 19 months, Meg passed away on December 19, 2009. Meg Whitney is remembered by other sailors as someone who liked to compete, but also had a lot of fun doing it. She is remembered by fellow Duster sailor and club member, Allen Rodriguez; who recently wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Meg was an inspiration to not just women, who might be a bit tentative about racing, but was also an inspiration to both young and experienced sailors. She taught us all how to be competitive and never give up. Her generous smile will always be remembered as she beat you around the mark.â&#x20AC;? 10

They winter rented here for two years so they could enjoy skiing and had no idea this was a summer vacation place too. It was a wonderful surprise to them and convinced them that having a vacation home here would be perfect. So 28 years ago they built their Timber Trails home and spent vacation time here in both the winter and summer. Both Steinbergs had been playing tennis on Long Island where they had their primary residence, so getting involved with tennis was a logical summer activity for them. Through tennis they met many friends and continued their social activities with them during the off-season. Twenty eight years ago, there were few if any LNC organized activities after Labor Day and so the Steinbergs and their new club friends organized and UDQWKHÂżUVW1HZ<HDUÂśV3DUW\KHOGLQWKH7LPEHU7UDLOV&OXEKRXVH,QRUGHUWRFRQWLQXH social activities, the tennis group organized and sponsored Valentine parties and the golf group, which June also got involved in, organized St. Patrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day parties. As club membership grew and social activities were recognized as an integral part of a vacation community, more and more activities were sponsored by LNC with continued volunteer member participation. The Steinbergs moved here full-time about ten years ago. June, a talented watercolor artist, gardener, kayaker, tennis player, singer and drama actress has always supported LNC by her volunteer participation. She has been a member of the Tennis, Golf, and Community Center Committees and prior to the general New Member Orientation meetings that Management currently organizes, volunteered to periodically orient new members by showing the LNC video and answering questions the new members might have about this community. The volunteers who participated in WKLVW\SHRIRULHQWDWLRQZHUHWKHÂżUVW/1&$PEDVVDGRUVWRQHZPHPEHUV June likes to propose new ideas for our community, the Garden Plot (located behind the Owassa building on the Community Center property) is one of her recent ideas that so many of our members enjoyed last year and hopefully each year. We members of LNC are lucky to have management and staff that work hard to support the wonderful activities of this club, but to also listen to the membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ideas and bring the best of them to fruition to be shared with all of us. June, keep your ideas coming and thank you for all you are and all you do.

The Club is currently working to get approval from Tobyhanna Township for this parking facility as that process drives the cost for developing such a facility based on the requirements for storm water management, etc. Once approval of Tobyhanna Township is secured, the project will be presented to the Board of Governors for their approval. Provided all goes well to that point, the Club will next present the project to the Membership in a mailed ballot the third week of April for their vote (Club Bylaws required new projects that exceed $200,000 in cost to be presented to the Membership for their approval). Provided all required approvals are received this Spring, it is possible that this new parking facility could be ready for Member use prior to the end of June. :HZHUHWROGODVW\HDUWKDWWKH0HPEHUVZRXOGEHVXUYH\HGDVSDUWRIWKH &OXEÂśVORQJWHUPSODQQLQJHIIRUWV :KHQFDQZHH[SHFWWKHVXUYH\" The Strategic Planning Committee is in the process of developing a draft of the survey document.
