Board President’s Message

Welcome to the new year 2023. Hopefully, everyone enjoyed the holiday season with family and friends.

Our Food and Beverage manager and employees have planned a New Year's Eve celebration at the Clubhouse and also the Main Lodge. I plan to attend the Main Lodge celebration with family and friends. Let’s ring in the New Year in typical Hideout style.

I would like to thank our Community Manager, Larry Frotten, and Assistant Community Manager, Jill Metschulat, for their leadership. Our community is the premier community in North East Pennsylvania, thanks to them. Thanks to them, each department manager and staff member works hard to keep our community the best in North East Pennsylvania.

Outside communities, as well as the local townships, are in communication with The Hideout. They make inquiries

about how we handle certain social situations. Sometimes they follow our bylaws and resolutions. All in making North East Pennsylvania a wonderful place to live, work, and raise a family.

Each month I will give an update on our cellular tower project. There is no activity as of December 2022. Trust me. No one wants this project completed more than I do. I’ve been working on this for a long time. When there is definite movement on the project, I will be the first to shout it from the mountaintop.

As always I ask, please be kind to our staff while in the performance of their jobs. Please be kind to each other. A little kindness goes a long way.

Happy and Healthy New Year ■

FROM LARRY FROTTEN

Community Manager’s Message

Members

and Staff,

Another year has come and gone, as the saying goes. We hope you were able to enjoy the holidays, and we wish you a healthy and happy 2023. The Hideout was blessed with some cold weather and early snow, allowing us to open the Ski Hill Complex on December 17. This is the earliest we have been able to open the Ski Hill in recent memory. We realize this is a mixed blessing because, certainly, all of us will face increased heating bills and discomfort from the cold. We have already received our first snow of the season, and as usual, our maintenance staff did an excellent job clearing our roadways and amenity facilities.

The cold season is upon us. We ask all our members to be vigilant and make efforts not to hamper our maintenance staff as they go about making our roadways and facilities safe. We have observed some members leave their vehicles on our roadways during storms, thereby hampering and endangering our staff. We request all members and their guests recognize the importance of keeping our roadways clear. Additionally, we observed some private contractors moving snow onto our roadways or into the driveways of neighbors. We ask all to be good neighbors. These violations will be addressed by our Public Safety Department in the future.

During the holidays and at other times, we may need to close the Recycling Center and Trash facility. We make every

effort to advise members of these closings in a timely manner. When we close the Center, the posted signs clearly indicate the area is closed. Members should note the area is well equipped with cameras to ensure the safety of members and the protections of very valuable equipment. Leaving trash or recyclables after closing is considered illegal dumping, and The Hideout rules prescribe a significant fine for these violations. We respectfully request members adhere to the signage and avoid unnecessary citations.

The Hideout has been fortunate in obtaining applications for positions of employment from qualified individuals. We are pleased to announce we have been able to fully staff most of our departments. We are still in search of qualified applicants to work in our Food and Beverage area. During the holiday season, our staff at Food and Beverage performed remarkably. The staff was faced with challenges because of staffing shortages, but the team pulled together and performed beyond expectations. We congratulate them for working as a team and meeting the expectations of our members.

The Hideout is a great place to live and work. We hope 2023 will be a healthy and prosperous year for all. ■

V. BOURNE, REGISTRATION SUPERVISOR Registration Corner

The Public Works Department would like to remind members to use caution when the snowplow trucks are on the roads. It is very difficult for the plow drivers to see pedestrians during an active storm, especially at night.

For both your safety and drivers, please refrain from walking on the roads.

Also, please be sure that all personal items such as cars, basketball nets, planters, and people are ten feet from the roadside edge.

As we say goodbye to 2022, one cannot help but to still have high hopes and expectations for what 2023 will bring. Revalidation for 2023 begins this month. All members will be receiving correspondence containing pertinent documents for the upcoming year, as well as the dues billing statements. In light of the increased number of Flu, RSV, and Corona Virus cases, and the health and safety of our Members and Staff, The Hideout Registration Department would like to strongly encourage our Membership to take advantage of the multiple options your forms and dues payment can be submitted.

Forms can be processed online at www. hideoutassoc.com. There is also the option of mailing your paperwork and payment to: The Hideout POA, 640 The Hideout, Lake Ariel, PA 18436. Forms can be faxed to: (570) 698-9457 or emailed to: registration@thehideout.us. In the event you choose to complete your transaction in person, please have your completed 2023 membership information form, copies of vehicle registrations, college student identifications, and permanent guest vehicle registrations in hand to alleviate extended wait times.

We also offer a mail-in/mail-out option to receive your 2023 stickers by mail. This

option is available for $8.00. Your stickers will be mailed to you via Certified Return Receipt. You can also submit a selfaddressed stamped envelope with your paperwork, however, there is no guarantee you will receive your revalidation material. When choosing either of these options, please remember to include: the completed membership information form, copies of vehicle registrations, college student identifications, and permanent guest vehicle registrations needed to process your 2023 validation.

2023 dues can be paid by cash, check or credit card. As has been previously announced, the credit card convenience fee has been reduced from $50.00 to $30.00. If choosing to pay dues with a credit card, that can be done by calling the Registration Department: (570) 698-4100 ext. 0.

Lastly, I would like to thank my team for doing a spectacular job keeping everything operating seamlessly. They have been invaluable to the Registration Department, the Community, and the POA.

Chair's Message

Happy New Year! As we welcome in 2023, I hope everyone enjoyed the Holiday Season with family and friends.

I want to thank our Maintenance crew for their great work as mother nature has made us keenly aware that winter has arrived. Their constant attention to keeping our roads clear during storms keeps us all safe. Also, kudos to our Ski Hill crew for opening the Ski Hill earlier than in recent memory. While the cold weather certainly helps, they were ready to take advantage of the snow making conditions for this great amenity.

January is when our dues are sent out to members. Please remember the dues need to be paid before the end of March. Included with the dues packet are Bylaw changes recommended by the Governing Documents Committee (GDC) and your Board of Directors. Please follow the instructions included in your dues packet and vote to approve these

Citation Enforcement

Bylaw changes. The Governing Documents Committee has been working diligently for each of the last 7 years to update our Bylaws year by year and section by section. This year’s changes represent a culmination of their hard and tedious work. This committee will continue to keep an eye on our Bylaws as situations may require changes in the future. While the GDC is winding down its work on our Bylaws, their work will continue. This year they will begin reviewing our Rules and Regulations and recommending changes to the Board. I want to thank all the past and present Governing Documents Committee members who have served our community so well over the years. ■

Public Safety Corner

As we get into the winter weather I would like to remind everyone that it is very important not to park on any street without prior authorization. The fine is $25.00 for the 1st offense and $50.00 for the 2nd offense. Also, parking on any street during a snow emergency will result in a fine of $50.00 for the 1st offense and $100.00 for the 2nd offense.

The Hideout Public Safety Department is charged with the strict enforcement of feeding wildlife in The Hideout. Special attention will be given to the feeding of deer. The fine is $1,000.00 for feeding deer.

Here are many reasons not to feed deer:

Little Deer Biology

White-tail deer have several natural adaptations that help them survive the winter. These include a thick winter coat of hollow hairs and the storage of fat in fall for later use during winter. Adult deer lose up to 20 percent of their body weight during winter, regardless of the amount or quality of food present.

Adult deer get as much as 40 percent of their daily energy during winter from their fat tissue.

During winter, cover - not foragebecomes the key to survival. Deer seek softwood cover (deer yards) to avoid deep snow, high winds and extreme cold. Deer move little in these areas and use a network of trails collectively created. Travel is easier, as is escape from predators. Wintering deer tend to disperse over an area large enough to reduce competition for food and risk of predation.

Despite these adaptations, some deer will die in winter. This occurs more commonly in older or smaller deer, especially among those with fewer fat reserves. If winter ends before the fat reserves are expended, the deer survives. If fat reserves are gone before winter ends, the deer dies. Therefore, any activity that increases energy use can lead to the death of individual deer and reduce the population.

Supplemental Feeding Can Harm Deer

Feed sites congregate deer into unnaturally high densities. These high deer densities can:

• attract predators and increase risk of death by coyotes or domestic dogs.

• spread disease among deer.

• cause aggression, wasting vital energy reserves and leading to injury or death.

• reduce fat reserves as deer use energy traveling to and from the feed site.

• result in over-browsing of local vegetation and ornamental plants.

• deny access to food, because subordinate deer are kept away from feeding stations, and over-browsing by larger deer removes food available to fawns.

• increase deer-vehicle collisions. Vehiclekilled deer near feed sites can outnumber those that would naturally succumb to winter mortality.

Other Problems Associated with Feed Sites:

• Tamer Deer Feed sites cause deer to depend less on their natural environment and more on humans. Deer may lose their fear of humans and become habituated to feed sites.

• Transition from Browse to Feed Deer receive little nutritional value from a new food source for about two weeks of feeding, since stomach microorganisms must adjust to the diet change. Ironically, while well-intentioned people try to help the deer by feeding, they may be harming them due to the time and energy needed to convert the microorganisms.

• Inferior Habitat and Traveling Energy Feed sites lure deer away from natural wintering areas. This attraction can trap deer in inferior winter habitat and increase the chance of malnutrition and predation.

• Unintended Impacts on Good Winter Cover Timber companies and other landowners alter cutting practices to protect good deer yards. If deer go to feed sites instead of protected deer yards, then the timber companies will see little value in continuing to protect the wintering areas. Further, young deer that associate feeding sites with winter habitat may never learn to occupy natural winter habitat. Thus, feeding may produce longterm habitat loss and critical behavioral change.

FROM TAMMI MCCABE, FOOD & BEVERAGE MANAGER

Food & Beverage Corner

Happy Holidays! December has been a busy month for us here at Food & Beverage.

With the many Holiday parties, we hosted. Starting with our employee Christmas party, followed by the HASG’s holiday party and Bowling party. All were a huge success and a great time was had by all.

A very special thank you to my staff for all their hard work this month. If you have been to the Main Lodge or the Clubhouse, you have beautiful decorations. Thank you to Yvanna and

Wanda for going about and beyond helping bring my vision of a winter wonderland to life. We are already talking about next year’s Décor. We are winding down the year with New year’s Eve at the Main Lodge with DJ Mike and at the Clubhouse with DJ Billy. Keep an eye out for our upcoming events for January; lots of fun stuff is planned for the upcoming months. ■

Recreation Corner

As this year comes to an end, the Recreation Department would like to thank all of the amazing community members in The Hideout for another successful year. We could not think of a better way to wrap up 2022 than with the month of December, which was filled with so many great events.

We hosted our annual tree lighting, which was held in Roamingwood Park on December 9th. This event had a big turn out and we could not have done it without the help of several groups and departments from The Hideout. The Maintenance Department played a huge role in picking and setting up our tree. Public Safety helped with parking and making sure everyone got into and out of Roamingwood Park safely. Food & Beverage provided the Hot Chocolate to keep everyone warm. Century 21 Select Group co-Sponsored the event and provided goodie bags and refreshments for all who attended. We cannot forget The Lake Ariel Fire Department, who safely escorted Santa Clause to and from this great event.

We also hosted our annual Children’s Holiday Party on Saturday, December

17th at the Main Lodge. This was another outstanding event that had a large attendance by our community members. The event was co-sponsored by RE/MAX Best. They provided the amazing presents that were handed out to all of the children who attended the event. The Food & Beverage Department provided the space and all of the delicious food for the event. Children were able to build ginger bread houses, take pictures with Santa, and receive presents provided by RE/MAX Best. All music, games, and entertainment were provided by DJ Billy.

I would like to thank everyone involved including my staff for organizing and running these remarkable events that occurred not just this past month but throughout the entire year. It is truly a special feeling when you get to see different groups, community members, employees, and local businesses come together to put on great events for the Community we live in. ■

Winter is Here!!!

As the temps continue to drop and the snow has made its way to the area the Maintenance Dept. continues to maintain the roads, parking lots, and building access from snow and ice. Our team works long hours to keep up with all storms to ensure The Hideout roads stay as clear as possible for safe driving. We do ask that any vehicles on members lots be parked at least 5 ft from the roadway and any items also be moved away to help prevent damage.

Stormwater remediation is completed for the season. Moving into 2023 we have multiple projects to start in the spring with around 100 smaller projects. Any member that is experiencing stormwater issues can contact Craig Rafaniello at ext. 132 or email crafaniello@thehideout.us

The Tiki Bar project will be started in January 2023 with a completion date of 5/1/2023. This is an exciting project for The Hideout and we look forward to opening day.

The North Gate project was approved and we will be bidding this work out in January 2023 with a start and finish timeframe of spring 2023. This project will consist of removing the islands and installing new concrete island with electrical upgrades for the new gate access and cameras.

As many of our members have noticed we have performed many upgrades to our buildings and amenities and we will

continue to make improvements in 2023. The Clubhouse deck will be replaced in 2023 as well as new pool liners for the Main pool. We will begin to start paving some of the parking lots in 2023 and begin plans to start the road paving phases in 2024.

Bulk Garbage will continue to be open Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday 11am-12:30pm for members that have the bulk garbage pass. Any questions in regards to bulk garbage can be answered be Desiree Detres at ext. 133 or email ddetres@thehideout.us. Trash and recycling will continue to operate at normal hours Monday-Friday 6am-8pm and Saturday and Sunday 8am-8pm.

Housekeeping continues to maintain the interior cleanliness of all of our building and amenities. This is not an easy job to perform but they go above and beyond to ensure our facilities are sanitized daily. Margie DeVincenzo is our lead custodian and has put together a great team. She ensures the staff is prepared for all seasons when it comes to keeping our amenities looking great.

If any member has questions in regards to Projects, Stormwater, Trash recycling or any general facility issues please contact myself at ext. 136 or email dpolhamus@thehideout.us ■

Have You Read Any Good Books Lately?

Did you know? One of The Hideout’s unadvertised amenities is the fantastic, member-stocked lending library located in the Game Room, 2nd Level of the Recreation Sports Complex building.

For years, members have been donating their books for others to enjoy. We have every imaginable category of books; fiction, nonfiction, history, art, and self-help. Have a favorite author? They are probably in the

library. The library operates on the honor system, so you can stop by any time that is convenient for you and take one or more books. You will find the latest and most popular authors as well as oldies but goodies!

We do have a couple of requests. If you are donating to the library (there’s a dropoff cart at the library entrance), please donate clean, newer books, and do not donate textbooks, manuals, or “smokers,” “mildewed” or “moldy” books.

While we are at it, let’s take a moment to thank Donna Bove and her helpers, who have been maintaining the library for us for several years now. They volunteer their time and will appreciate your attention to the “do’s and don’ts,” making their job much easier. Happy reading! ■

The funding was provided by the Dime Bank; Wayne Bank; and National Bank, with them donating equal shares for the grant ($124,250). Each institution will receive 75% in Pennsylvania tax credits for their gift.

The purpose for this grant is to fund a variety of costs associated with the construction of a new YMCA building for Wayne County. According to Eric Linde, Chairman of the Y Board of Trustees’ Construction Committee, the grant will fund Phase I of a four-phase building project. Phase 1 costs will pay for civil engineering site planning; preliminary architectural development and the costs associated with funding and program consultants.

The proposed site for the new YMCA building will be a twenty-acre parcel of land, located on Spinner’s Road, 2 miles outside Honesdale, off Route #191 S. The property is being donated by the Wayne Memorial Hospital Systems Board of Directors upon the signing of a “Letter of Intent” agreement in August of 2022.

Tina Hoehn, Executive Director of the YMCA, described the Grant award an incredibly important “first step” to making a modem up to date YMCA, a “Dream Come True.”

Dr. David Reynolds, Chairman of the Board of Trustees’, Finance Committee, noted that the organization is currently in the planning stages of development and a national Market Study firm will be conducting local surveys to determine the programs and facilities that will be included at the YMCA.

Paul Edwards and Paul Meagher, Board of Trustees, Co-Chairmen, expressed their deep appreciation to the Wayne Memorial Hospital and the three local banks that make this project a real possibility. They also commented about the overwhelming support that they are receiving from everyone who has heard about the new facility. Both said that there will be a mountain of work and support that will be needed going forward and that in the future the details for the fund raising campaign will be made public. ■

4. MANAGEMENT REPORTS:

a) Financial Manager, Debra Tramantano

Dues Paid in Full: As of 11/16/22 we have 3,623 Lots paid in full which is 99.6% of our budgeted number of 3,640. This leaves 18 Lots to be paid in full to reach 100% of our budget for the year. As of 11/16, we have collected $191,844.00 of delinquent dues payments against our budget of $80,000.00.

Cash Flow: NBT Bank balance for Operations as of 11/18/22 is $1,842,584.00. We are estimating a balance of approximately $610,000 for the end of the year.

2022 Lot Write-Offs: We are seeking board approval to write-off $428,498.16 of

uncollectible receivables for 2022. This amount would be charged to our bad debt allowance and will not impact Operations.

Investments: As of mid-October, we have seen significant losses in our longterm investments with Fisher. The loss to date is $561,891.00. However, this investment is being held long-term and the prognosis from Fisher is positive that we will see significant improvements in 2023. Our investments with NBT Wealth have turned around and we are now seeing interest income that exceeds our administrative fees.

Questions/Comments regarding the Financial Manager report:

Member asked what type of Lots are being written off. Debra Tramantano, Financial Manager advised that most of the 48 Lots are unimproved. As more people buy these lots, they will become billable therefore we will receive income from them.

b) Community Manager, Larry Frotten

Equipment: The salt/sand shed is full and ready for the winter season. Weather conditions for making snow are good right now. The new transformer is performing well, and we expect to run the snow guns through Tuesday, 11/22. We hope to expand the tube runs from three lanes to six lanes this year. We will send out frequent Ski Hill updates to Members. The POA generator will be replaced on Monday, 11/21 and we will move the used generator to the Lodge for Public Safety use. Looking towards spring, we will continue to work on stormwater and golf course repairs.

Staffing/Departments: We continue to actively recruit for Food & Beverage and Public Safety Departments and we are seeing good candidates.

Questions/Comments regarding the Community Manager report: None.

(At this point, Richard Guiffredo, Director joined the meeting via Zoom.)

Questions/Comments regarding Unfinished Business: None.

6. NEW BUSINESS:

Questions/Comments regarding Unfinished Business:

Lot # 4009 – can you please give us the rationale regarding the Body Cameras purchase. Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised the members that after doing extensive research and consulting with several attorneys who are heavily in favor of our officers utilizing body worn cameras, it is the recommendation of Management to make this investment. Body worn cameras effectively de-escalate tense situations,

provide complete transparency during questionable encounters, and dispel false claims to decrease liability.

Lot #1008 – will training for officers be included in the Body Camera initiative? Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised that yes, training will be included.

Lot #2916 – have we received the best pricing possible? Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised that after doing extensive research regarding quality and service, we feel this is a reasonable quote.

Lot #1145 – member suggested that policy is implemented before using the body cameras. Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised that we will work with Axon in creating a body camera policy for The Hideout.

Lot #1761 – was member approval achieved for the body camera initiative? Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised that our members elected the Board of Directors to review initiatives and make decisions that are in the best interest of the community.

Lot #4009 asked Michael Terranova how he plans to work with Management. Michael Terranova, President advised the members that as always, management will make recommendations, the Board will review and assist with implementation where appropriate. Member asked Mike to give an update on the cell tower project. Mike advised the members that Liberty Tower is marketing the project to several carriers (AT&T, Verizon, etc.). Due to the downturn in the economy, all carriers are reluctant to commit to new projects. He will keep in contact with Liberty and provide updates as they become available.

Lot #3289 – Please give an update on wi-fi expansion. Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised the members that Adams Cable has been expanding service with possible hotspots in the North section. We will provide updates as they become available.

Unidentified Member (Zoom) asked if there were plans to renovate the amenities and expand parking. Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised the members that we are restricted with parking space at the Main Beach, but the North Beach is a possibility in the future. Debra Tramantano, Financial Manager advised that we have plans to replace equipment at the Arts Center and playgrounds, as well as a new sound system at the ISC.

Lot #175 (Zoom) – can more Managers attend Board Meetings so Members can ask questions? Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised that there are several managers in attendance today, and at every Board Meeting who are available to answer questions.

What is The Hideout’s “Help a Hero Fund” and how did it start?

After the horrendous 9/11 attacks on our country, two members of our Community, Bob Wiegand, a Retired Battalion Chief with the New York City Fire Department and Bill Wagner a Retired Detective with the New York City Police Department both of whom worked at Ground Zero following the attacks, decided to erect a Memorial Park to honor the victims of that terrible day. They contacted the Community Manager and Board of Directors with their plan to erect a fitting tribute in our Community and were granted the property where Reflection Park now sits. Bob and Bill formed a 9/11 Committee to raise funds to make their dream a reality.

The residents, Hideout contractors and outside venders stepped up to make it work. Numerous fund raisers, donations, and 50/50s were held and the entire Community pitched in to accomplish the committee’s goals.

Reflection Park was dedicated on September 11, 2005 to the victims with our sincere thanks. We started with the 1st section with three benches to honor the Heroes who made the supreme sacrifice. The pavers you walk upon to enter the park represent the shape of the Pentagon. The center podium not only contains a piece of steel recovered from the ruins, and gives the timeline of the attack starting with the first planes attacking the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and who can forget Flight 93 whose passengers brought down avoiding more tragedy on the ground. The two large flag cases have the

names of all who perished on that fateful day.

Once the park neared completion, a Military themed bridge was constructed leading to a section of the park honoring our Military who symbolically took over the fight from the First Responders. All branches of Service are represented. We then wanted the third part of Reflection Park to reflect Peace and Tranquility. Benches around the Fountain are to sit on and reflect on its beauty. The softly flowing water represents the tears we all cried during this horrific time in our history

This bring us to the formation of the “Help a Hero Fund”

In 2006, which was the fifth anniversary as we were getting ready to hold our ceremony, we realized truly how great our Community supported us and we still had funds left over. We read a flyer regarding a fund raising breakfast for a severely ill son of a local firefighter’s family, so we decided to give a substantial donation to assist them in their time of need. It was decided that our fund raising would continue not only to maintain the park, but be able to help the local Police, EMTs, Firefighters, Public Safety, and local Military who selflessly serve our Community every day. With that - “The Help a Hero Fund” was established to assist them or their family members in need of assistance.

The Help a Hero Fund is a 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization and all donations are tax deductable.

Since the fund was established in 2006, we have assisted our local 1st Responders in their time of need and have made over $39,000 in donations to them. In addition, we have provided and maintain 3 flagpoles to the Community, purchased training manikins for our First Response Team, AED trainers and manuals so that our Public Safety can offer free CPR & AED training to our Community, a rescue sled and safety harnesses for the Ski Hill, and provided safety equipment to our Public Safety and Maintenance Dept., as well as any department in need. We also built and maintain Reflection Park, the Veteran’s wall of Honor at the Main Lodge, and in addition we host the Memorial Day, 9/11, and Veterans Day programs all including a brunch after the ceremonies. We have presented our Community with the Field of Flags display every year, in addition every year we put up a patriotic Christmas tree and collect holiday cards and send them to our troops overseas. We have also given a Purple Heart recipient an all inclusive 1 week vacation (food, restaurants, and entertainment) with the help of Noreen Crummy, who provided her house on Roamingwood Lake.

How do we pay for all of this?? Donations, fund raisers, the 9/11-Help a Hero Golf Outing, and the generosity of our Community makes this possible.

We are the only Community that has a fund like this, and it’s the Community’s response that has made it a success.

If you would like to help us, it would be greatly appreciated, Donations can be made to:

ENVIRONMENTAL PAGE

Greetings,

As we come into the heart of winter here in the Northeast, much has slowed down in both nature and our daily lives. While many of us are dreading the seemingly endless cold days to come, before we know it warmer temps and green foliage will be upon us. But before we get ahead of ourselves, enjoy some of the winter activities The Hideout has to offer!

Lakes

• Lake drawdown has come to a conclusion, and will remain roughly at 5 feet below pool height until the end of March. This height can vary for short amounts of time due to precipitation and other weather events.

• Walleye have been stocked in Roamingwood Lake as of November 2022.

• With ice fishing on Brooks Lake approaching, we ask that all participants please follow state and Hideout limits / regulations while fishing. The Hideout’s limits are as follows:

o Use of Alewife and Golden Shiners for bait are prohibited

o Sunfish, Yellow Perch, White Perch, Crappies, Catfish, Rock Bass

- Open year round: 50 (combined species)

o Bass- Cut state limits in half. Therefore:

- Jan 1 – Apr 17 and Nov 1 – Dec 31: 15”, 2 (combined species)

- Apr 18 – Jun 12: NO HARVEST

- Jun 13 – Oct 31: 12”, 3 (combined species)

o Walleye- NO HARVEST (year-round)

o Grass Carp – NO HARVEST (yearround)

Presentations

• Look for the Delaware Valley Raptor Center to be putting on a presentation this spring to educate our residents on birds of prey in our area.

o This is a great opportunity to learn more about the beautiful birds we see every day here in the Hideout such as eagles and red-tailed hawks.

Committee Opening

• One more opening is available in the Wildlife and Forestry Committee, the committee currently has 7 members, with a maximum capacity of 8 allowed. This committee is suited for those that have a vested interest in preserving native habitat within the Hideout, and looking after our local wildlife, ensuring that they remain in good health, and are properly managed. For information on this committee, please reach out to the environmental manager at:

o 570-698-4100 x120

o pmatarazzo@thehideout.us

• Aside from the Wildlife and Forestry Committee member opening, the committee is also in search of volunteers to help maintain, and add to the Roamingwood native garden. Activities would include things such as plantings, weed management, and other routine gardening.

NWF (National Wildlife Federation)

• Please consider registering your Hideout property as certified wildlife habitat through the NWF.

• The Hideout is seeking national recognition as a certified wildlife habitat community via the NWF. In order to achieve this goal, 150 residents must have their property registered with the NWF. We are nearing this goal, and would become members of a small group of communities throughout the state of Pennsylvania by reaching this designation!

• To register, please email the Environmental Manager (pmatarazzo@ thehideout.us) for a link providing online registration, or stop by the POA office for a paper application!

o For any questions regarding certifying property as NWF wildlife habitat please reach out to the environmental manager via the email address provided above as well. ■

What’s “Hiding Out” in our Community this Month?

Snowshoe Hare, Lepus americanus

Seasonal Changes: Many animals throughout the Northeast go through changes in fur / hair to properly adapt to the rapidly cooling environment. This can be seen commonly in our whitetail deer herds growing thicker / healthier looking coats in comparison to their much thinner summer coats that can often look a little disheveled.

new growth, and brushy cover. Cover such as mountain laurel, rhododendron, and thicker clearcut regeneration areas will hold snowshoe hares. This type of habitat is also preferred by many other small mammals throughout the state due to it providing excellent cover from predators, and adequate browse / food.

This month’s animal of discussion goes through slightly different changes, the snowshoe hare not only grows a thicker winter coat, it changes color entirely. The extreme adaptation hares go through are what makes them not only interesting, but spectacular in appearance.

Appearance: Snowshoe hares have two primary colors throughout the year in Pennsylvania that aid them in blending in with their environment, and avoiding the many predators that call our state home. Throughout the spring, summer, and early fall months the hare will have a rusty brown / amber appearance, allowing the hare to blend in with dirt and rocks. Once winter rolls around, the hare will sport a white coat that blends in perfectly with snow covered environments throughout its range. While the majority of the hare turns white in the winter, the tips of their ears will stay jet black throughout the year. This can be used to easily identify the hare.

While the white coat allows the snowshoe hare to blend in well in snowy environments, the temperature and snow are not what causes the hare to grow white fur. The cause of the hare’s color change is actually the photo-period in relation to the sun. When fall arrives, and the days begin getting shorter, the hare perceives less daylight and begins to molt. This is triggered in the pituitary gland in the hare’s brain. When the molting occurs, the fur grows white in color due to the pituitary gland shutting off pigment production of the fur (PGC Education).

The snowshoe hare is fairly large in comparison to our more common eastern cottontail. The hare can weigh in at up to 5 pounds and measure as much as 19 inches in length with males being slightly larger than their female counterparts.

Habitat: Snowshoe hares can be seen in many different habitat types throughout our region. They prefer to live in mixed soft and hardwood forests that offer fresh

Diet: The diet of a snowshoe hare differs slightly from the well-known eastern cottontail, and is quite simple when it comes to variety. The hare prefers to eat woody browse, new tree growth, and grasses / wildflowers. Whereas the eastern cottontail can also be seen enjoying things such as berries and crops if in farm country.

Conclusion: If you want to venture out this winter in search of a snowshoe hare, mixed forests with coniferous trees and low-lying cover, or mountain swamps with dense plant growth would be great places to look. These animals are a spectacular sight in the winter that call most of Pennsylvania home.

Judith Scigowski

Judith Scigowski, age 83, of Lake Ariel, PA passed away peacefully at home on November 29, 2022 with her beloved children Stanley Jr. and Judy at her side. To have known Judith was to love her. She was a very special person filled with an abundance of love for her family and friends. Her caring and supportive ways were only matched with her fun-loving spirit, her strength, and her enduring kindness.

Judith was born on June 13, 1939 and grew up in New York. She was married to her husband Stanley for 45 years until his passing in 2009. In Rosedale, NY they raised their children and their granddaughter Jennifer following the heartbreaking passing of Judith’s oldest daughter Mary Ellen. They later moved to North Massapequa, NY to be closer to their children as they were married and to welcome their grandchildren. In 2008, Judith retired to her beloved home in The Hideout in Lake Ariel, PA.

Judith’s primary occupation for 35 years was a school bus driver in Queens, NY. In retirement, Judith did many hours of volunteer work at a local food pantry and other charitable organizations in the Lake Ariel area.

Judith loved to travel throughout her life, visiting many different places both domestically and abroad. One of her favorite ways to travel was cruising and she celebrated her 80th birthday with a big trip to the Panama Canal.

Judith always felt that life should be lived to the fullest. With both of her parents being deceased before age 40, Judith felt blessed to live into her senior years and see her grandchildren grow up. The best part of her life was spending time with her family and friends. Most especially, Judith enjoyed watching her two youngest granddaughters Allison and Kaitlyn grow up on a daily basis just down the block from her home and spending time with them each day.

Judith will be forever missed by her devoted children Stanley Jr. and Judy and by her daughter-in-law Louisa and her son-in-law Michael. She will live on in the hearts of her grandchildren Jennifer, Steven, Thomas, Allison, and Kaitlyn, protecting them along life’s journey. In her final days, Judith remarked how she wanted to be around to see how each grandchild’s life turned out. With her passing, they will surely have their grandmother as an angel by their side. Judith will also be deeply missed by her enduring and dear friend Bob Barton and all of her many dear friends.

Judith is predeceased by her daughter Mary Ellen Gerakaris and her husband Stanley Scigowski.

Private cremation took place at Lake Region Crematory, Lake Ariel.

A Mass of Christian Burial took place on Monday, December 12th at 10:00am in St. Mary’s Church, 334 St. Mary Church Rd. Lake Ariel with services by Rev. Stephen Bosomafi, Pastor.

Arrangements have been entrusted to and are under the care and direction of James Wilson Funeral Home, Lake Ariel.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Judith’s name may be made to: Tunnel to Towers Foundation, 2361 Hylan Boulevard, Staten Island, NY 10306 or Hospice of the Sacred Heart, 53 Glenmaura National Boulevard, Suite 120, Moosic, Pa 18507.

To share a memory or to leave a condolence for the family please visit www.jameswilsonfuneralhome.com

Elizabeth Pierce of The Hideout, Lake Ariel, died peacefully on Wednesday evening Dec 14th 2022 at Wayne Memorial Hospital after suffering a brief and sudden illness. Her husband of 49 years David Pierce and her daughter Jessica Pierce were alongside her when she passed.

Born in Queens, NY, daughter of the late William and Margaret Farrell Volland, she was a graduate of Ridgewood High School and had worked as an executive secretary for a number of brokerages.

Also surviving are her son Michael Pierce and wife Michelle; her brother Robert Volland and wife Patricia ‘the sister she never had’; her grandson Bradford Pierce and wife Hayleigh; her grandson Hayden Pierce; her niece Bette Lynn Volland; and her nephew Billy Volland. She was predeceased by her older brother Charlie “Chuck” Volland.

Elizabeth was known to everyone as Betty and she touched the lives of everyone she knew. She was lucky to be married to her best friend for nearly 50 years and was a devoted wife. She had many close friends, many of which she considered to be her extended family. Her smile and laughter were contagious and she made friends with nearly anyone she came across. She was the best mom anyone could ask for and she was a ‘mom’ at one time or another to many kids growing up. She was a great listener, a social director, and a great friend. She is going to be missed terribly by anyone that was lucky enough to know her.

Betty wanted a party after she passed. To honor her, the family will be hosting a celebration of her life on a date to be determined in the new year.

If anyone would like to be notified about the date and time, please send your contact information to jessicapierce555@gmail.com or 845-532-0118.

Cremation took place in the Lake Region Crematory, Lake Ariel. Arrangements are under the direction of the James Wilson Funeral Home, Lake Ariel.

General: The committee welcomed Barbara McNulty as a new member.

Old Business:

1. We looked into Google maps to see if an address correction was needed to prevent visitors from being directed to the Stock Farm Gate and it was discovered that if an address is entered in the vicinity of Stock Farm Road the direction will take you there. However, when searching for The Hideout in that area Google maps usually takes you to the Northgate entrance.

2. Dues collection of budgeted lots is at more than 99.7%. It is with great anticipation that we reach 100% by end of year!

3. The Long Range Committee is still compiling the data from the survey.

4. There is a recent update regarding Short Term Rentals. An email blast was sent out and the info can be found on The Hideout website at

https://www.hideoutassoc.com/Rentals, or contact rentals@thehideout.us or (570) 698-4100 ext. 100

5. Plans for the Main and Northgate entrances are proceeding and will be going out to bid in the near future.

New Business and items of Discussion:

1. The question was raised as to whether there is a general calendar of events that can be accessed. The internal calendar is kept by Caroline Mongelli. Please advise Caroline cmongelli@thehideout. us of all committee & private events etc that should be included in this calendar. The Community Relations Staff updates the Upcoming events calendar on The Hideout website, on the Member side. Special announcements and activities posters can be sent to Lisa Green at Lgreen@thehideout.us for display on the bulletin boards at the mailboxes.

2. The classified ads in The Hideabout have been getting a lot of attention lately and it is a great way to advertise as a very low cost.

3. There is a growing concern of people walking along the roads especially when walking their dogs that they are not wearing reflective clothing. Please be sure to wear hi-visibility clothing at all hours, but especially at night.

Meeting Adjourned at 12:30pm Next Meeting Monday – January 9th 2023 @ 11:30 at the POA and Zoom

COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES Lakes Committee Meeting Minutes October 29, 2022

Chair: Iggy Rivera

Members: Kent Fairfield, Rick Nolte, Judy Restaino, (Zoom – Kirsten Dolan, Jeff Silverman)

Staff: Paul Matarazzo, Larry Frotten Board: Andrew Miller (Zoom)

Excused: Steve Flapan, Arnie Milidantri Guests: Mike Hartshorne

The meeting was called to order at 9:09 in person and via Zoom followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. The minutes of the previous meeting were approved as written with a motion by R. Nolte, a second by K. Fairfield and approval by all.

Mike Hartshorne, Director of Aquatics for Princeton Hydro, presented the yearly summary of the Hideout lakes. Water quality data is always driven by precipitation patterns. During the summer months it was drier than usual and in July and August warmer than normal. Roamingwood did have a HAB (harmful algae bloom) around August 25th but in general, the water quality of the lakes was good. Some of the recommendations for next year are: monitoring for HABs in Roamingwood, continue treatments for phosphorus using EutroSorb in Deerfield and Brooks, utilize BioChar at stream sites, potential limited restocking of grass carp in Roamingwood.

Fall Walleye Stocking: 430 Walleye are going to be stocked in Roamingwood during the final week of October via Schultz’s Fish Hatchery to control

excessive pan fish.

Lake Drawdown: The drawdown for Roamingwood Lake began on October 26th. Once the lake drops 3 feet, the side weir will be closed, and the main weirs opened to reach the desired 5-foot drop. Around March 15th the lake will be allowed to fill to normal pool.

Dam Inspections: These will be conducted by Joe Hudak of Kiley Associates on November 2nd.

Discussion:

A question was asked about geese eggs. They were not addled this year but will be next year. We are working with the USDA who also does our deer management.

There was a complaint from a resident about some damage having been done by a beaver but after some checking, it was noted that there are no other signs of beavers.

There has been a turkey problem. Some turkeys, and in particular 3 jake turkeys (young males), have been quite aggressive. Turkeys are wild and should run from people so it is advised not to let them get used to people by feeding them.

The next meeting will be at the end of March. The yearly calendar of meeting dates will be forwarded by January.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:15 with a motion by R. Nolte, a second by K. Fairfield and approval by all.

Respectfully submitted, Judy Restaino ■

REAL ESTATE Selling Your Home In The Winter…

Here in the Poconos, selling a home during the winter months can be a challenge…

If you are serious about getting your home sold, realize that this is actually a great time to sell your home. Those buyers who are out home shopping in the winter are very serious buyers

There are a few things that you should do to increase your home’s appeal during the winter. Staying on top of winter maintenance and chores is a sure-fire way of adding value to your home. A neatly shoveled driveway and cleared walkway are a must. Don’t forget to shovel by the side doors, the garage and decks. It is fine to have sleds, toboggans and that sort of thing visible as it will reinforce the idea that your home is fun.

Make sure boots, coats, gloves, scarves and all those other cold weather items are placed neatly in the mud room or coat closet. Provide a good welcome mat for people to wipe their feet as buyers sometimes feel awkward about tracking through people’s homes.

Make sure the heating system is in good working order and that the room temperature is kept at a comfortable level. There is nothing worse than having a buyer zip through your home without taking the time to really take a look because it is so cold all they can think of is getting back to the warmth of the car.

Open as many curtains as possible to add light and color to rooms. Keep spring and summer pictures of your home out on tables and in clear view. Photos of your front yard or the backyard shade tree in full summer bloom can help swing many buyers in favor of a purchase.

Just as you would in warmer weather, take yourself on a tour of your home. Start in the basement and work your way through the house. More than likely you’ll see many previously undiscovered cluttered spaces and needed repairs that can turn off potential buyers.

Winter IS a great time to sell your home, particularly in the market we are currently experiencing.

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Frozen Shoulder The Basics

Frozen shoulder or Adhesive Capsulitis is characterized by pain and loss of motion of the shoulder joint. The exact causes of frozen shoulder are unknown. However, diabetes, thyroid disorder, history of shoulder trauma, and periods of shoulder immobilization have been found to be risk factors that can lead to this type of problem. Females also tend to be at a higher risk. Research suggests that the process starts with an inflammation of the lining of the joint within the shoulder and results in the shoulder becoming stiffer and more painful. This painful period often lasts several months effecting sleep, common daily activities such as dressing, reaching behind the back, and any overhead activity. This diagnosis of frozen shoulder is usually evident after examination comparing the range of motion of the opposite arm along with the patient’s physical history.

A frozen shoulder typically progresses through stages. First is the initial stage. This is when the shoulder becomes painful and stiff with movement and at rest. This stage typically last about 4 to 9 months. Next is the frozen stage, when the shoulder is painful with movement but the pain at rest has resolved. During this stage the shoulder is very stiff and can last 4-12 months. The last stage is the thawing period, during which a slow and steady return of motion occurs, this stage can last several months as well. The entire course of a frozen shoulder can take 12-24 months to resolve.

The treatment for frozen shoulder requires patience on the part of the patient and the treating physical therapist. Treatment during the painful stage involves medication, including cortisone injections. Physical therapy is often recommended which includes manual therapy to reduce pain and improve joint mobility. Proper exercise instruction and patient education in managing their condition is vital for a successful outcome. If you feel like you are developing this type of problem

My morning was so hectic, Running here and there;

My afternoon was messed up too, I had so many cares.

Nothing seemed to turn out right, As I struggled through the day. No time to sit and rest a while, Not even time to pray.

My whole day just unraveled! Why? I had no clue!

“God, why didn’t you help me?”

He whispered, “You never asked Me to.”

The next morning I woke up With His words fresh on my mind, So I decided right then and there To talk with God this time!

As I told Him about all my plans, He said that each step I take He would direct for my good And work out for my sake.

Now each day’s hemmed with prayer As together we agree To work out each plan one step at a time, Just Father GOD and me!

“The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth, and even for evermore.” Psalm 121:7 (KJV)

PEDESTRIAN SAFETY

To stay safe walking, follow these rules of the road:

1. Walk Facing Traffic When Walking on the Side of the Road

If there is no sidewalk and you must walk on the side of the road, choose the side where you are facing oncoming traffic. In North America, this is the left side of the road. This gives you the best chance to see traffic approaching closest to you and take evasive action when needed.

2. Walk Single File When Not Separated from the Road

Unless you are on a sidewalk separated from the road or you are in a wide bike/ pedestrian lane, you should walk in single file. This is especially important on a road with lots of curves and where traffic has only a split second chance of seeing you before hitting you. While it can be enjoyable to walk down the road two to three abreast chatting merrily, drivers don’t expect it and you may lose your best walking buddies.

3. Stay Aware of Bikes and Runners

Share the road and path with bikes and runners. Bike riders should alert you when approaching from behind with a bike bell or a “passing on the left/right.” Listen for them, and move to walk single file, allowing them to pass safely. Runners should also call out for passing. Bike-walker collisions can result in broken bones or head injury for either—and you aren’t wearing a helmet.

4. Be Visible

Wear bright colors when walking. When walking at night, wear reflective clothing or a reflective vest to be visible. Drivers are often not expecting walkers to be out after dark, and you need to give them every chance to see you. Be just as cautious at dawn or twilight, as drivers still have limited visibility or may even have the setting or rising sun directly in their eyes.

5. Be Predictable

Make a practice of staying on one side of the path while walking rather than weaving randomly from side to side. Watch your arm motions, or you may end up giving a black eye to a passing walker, runner, or biker.

6. Keep the Volume Down

Don’t drown out your environment when listening to music with your earbuds or headphones. Keep the volume at a level where you can still hear bike bells and warnings from other walkers and runners.

7. Hang Up and Eyes Up

Distracted walking due to chatting, texting, or playing games on a mobile device while you walk is as dangerous as doing those things while driving. You are distracted and not as aware of your environment. You are less likely to recognize traffic danger, tripping hazards, or passing joggers and bikers. Adopt habits that can keep your phone in your pocket, or at least make it a practice to stop in a safe place to complete your phone tasks before moving on.

8. Walk Dogs on Short Leashes

It is terrifying and tragic to witness dogs running out in to traffic or getting into a fatal dog fight, whether on leash or off leash. But when walking your dog on a long leash there is also a danger that you will trip other walkers or bikers. You will keep your dog safer as well as those who pass by you if you use proper leash walking etiquette.

9. Know When to Stop Walking

Heat sickness, dehydration, heart attack, or stroke can strike walkers of any age. Learn the symptoms of medical emergencies and carry a cell phone to dial 911. Even if you are a seasoned and well-trained walker, you may experience one of these problems and need to cut your walk short. Encourage your walking friends to stop when they show any concerning symptoms.

10. Be Aware of Stranger Danger

Street safety is a concern for many walkers. Choose your walking route for paths frequented by other walkers, joggers, and bikers. If you see someone suspicious, be prepared to alter your course or go into a store or public building to avoid them. Acting alert and aware can convince bad guys you are not an easy target. ■

Be Kind

The Hideout Rules & Regulations specify, “verbal and/or physical harassment of staff and/or other members is prohibited” so harassment or threats may result in the issuance of a citation or multiple citations.

What is PFAS?

PFAS are a group of manufactured chemicals that have been used in industry and consumer products since the 1940s because of their useful properties. There are thousands of different PFAS, some of which have been more widely used and studied than others. Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) and Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS), for example, are two of the most widely used and studied chemicals in the PFAS group. PFOA and PFOS have been replaced in the United States with other PFAS in recent years. One common characteristic of concern of PFAS is that many break down very slowly and can build up in people, animals, and the environment over time.

Does the EPA currently have regulatory limits on PFAS levels in drinking water?

No. The EPA is still gathering data to support establishing nationwide regulatory limits. However, lifetime health advisories have been issued for high PFAS contaminant levels and interim advisories have been issued for the following four (4) most commonly found contaminants:

PFOA - perfluorooctanoic acid

PFOS - perfluorooctane sulfonic acid

PFBS - perfluorobutane sulfonic acid and its potassium salt

Gen-X - dimer acid and its ammonium salt

The latter two PFBS & Gen-X are newer and considered ‘replacements’ for the PFOA and PFOS.

The EPA has proposed a National Drinking Water regulation in the Fall of 2022. Preliminary nationwide testing has been mandated to aid in finalizing the standard. RS&W is scheduled to test our drinking water in April and October of 2023 according to this mandate. The EPA is absorbing the cost of this testing, as of now, the burden will not fall on the water providers to test for PFAS contaminants.

Generator Permit

AHideout

Building Permit is required for the installation/operation of any “non-portable” residential whole house/ stand-by electrical generator. Small portable units are excluded. A separate permit is required if you need to install a propane tank to fuel the generator.

ALL applications for permits are located on The Hideout website or you can get any permit application at the POA Office.

IMPORTANT PORTABLE GENERATOR

SAFETY TIPS:

- Never operate a generator indoors - it can cause unintentional carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning. Carbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas

which, if inhaled, can be fatal.

- Do not install a generator right next to your home - carbon monoxide can collect in the eaves of your home.

- Don’t refill the generator’s gas tank while the unit is running as this can cause a fire, leading to serious injury or death.

- Be sure to remove all gas from the tank when storing your generator.

HOW TO CHOOSE A GENERATOR

- Identify the items you will need to run in the event of a power outage. Choose the generator that meets or exceeds the total

wattage requirement.

- Assistance from a qualified electrician is also advisable.

• 5,000 WATTS (41.7/20.8 AMPS)

Powers Refrigerator 700 watts, AM/FM radio 50 watts, Color TV 450 watts, Eight 100-watt lights 800 watts, Microwave 1,000, Sump pump 1,000 watts, Water pump 1,000 watts

• 6,800 WATTS (56.7/28.3 AMPS) Powers everything a 5,000 watt generator does, plus: Deep freezer 500 watts, Washing machine 1,100 watts

• 8,000 WATTS (66.7/33.3 AMPS)

Powers everything a 6,800 watt generator

does, plus: Attic fan 300 watts, Clothes dryer (gas) 700 watts, Four 100 watt lights 400 watts

NOTE - A simple formula to calculate how much combined power you’ll need to run appliances and tools is volts x amps = wattage. Check the power demands of your appliances to determine whether they can run simultaneously or intermittently. Always consult the data plate on the appliance for accurate electrical information.

Starting watts: Always plug in the appliance with the highest starting wattage first and add appliances in descending wattage order. ■

A MORNING RAINBOW

I stood gazing out my window

As the night was pushed aside The clouds and sky began to glow There was no place now to hide Caught between the floating clouds The sun’s rays change and streak As if the colors from the east Are sent through holes that peak Each morning the reflection Of the sunrise lights the sky Reversing every evening when The sun sets and daylight dies Each day seems very different The clouds are not the same Planes and birds poke holes As if they’re playing games Today without a warning The sky opened like a door It started with a bright light I’ve never seen before A perfect rainbow from end to end Sent chills throughout my spine I’m sure there is a pot of gold I wished it could be mine What caused the morning sky to glow And paint this picture so I stared there frozen to the core Thinking, do I really want to know?

Pearl Harbor Remembered

(Honesdale, December 7, 2022)…

A wreath laying ceremony was held at Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH) this morning in recognition of Pearl Harbor Day and to honor the heroic members of our armed forces who served that fateful day 81 years ago.

Veterans, family members, local officials, and members from WMH administration and staff attended the solemn ceremony at the hospital’s memorial plaque dedicated to soldiers who lost their lives in World War I.

With immense respect the program included a summary account of the horrific event, the Pledge of Allegiance, a memorial prayer, the wreath laying, and taps.

It was one of the darkest days in U.S. history, the bombing of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. President Franklin D. Roosevelt called it “a date which will live in infamy.” The surprise attack by the Japanese claimed approximately 2,400 lives and marked the official entry of the U.S. into World War II. ■

Christmas Joy for Seniors!

(Honesdale, December 14, 2022)…

Generosity for senior citizens was high again this year with many Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH) employees. When word went out for senior gift donations the reply was immediate and the response was tremendous.

The senior gift program is coordinated between the Wayne County Area Agency on Aging and

WMH Social Services Manager Mary Burgio-Terpak, LCSW. This year the list included 48 senior citizens many for general necessities, household items, and pet food.

Thank you everyone for your kindness. Burgio-Terpak commented “I get so many calls afterwards from the seniors totally overwhelmed by your generous gifts!” ■
