The Hideabout July 2024

Page 1

FROM RICHARD YOCUM Board President’s Message

Welcome to July in The Hideout! Let us all hope our days are sunny and warm.

Our Main Pool amenity has been totally redone. So, if you are down at Main Beach, check it out. It looks great and is ready for our members and guests to enjoy. Thanks to our very busy and talented Maintenance staff, all our outdoor amenities are ready to welcome you for the summer season. Currently, Maintenance is busy installing a driving range at Laurel Park. This is a major in-house undertaking and when it’s done it will be a great addition to our long list of amenities.

This is only July, but we are already in the process of putting together the budget for 2025. The first step in the process began this spring. Our Community Manager and all our department managers have already worked and reworked their preliminary budgets for next year. According to our bylaws, this had to be done by June 1st. Then, the preliminary budget is submitted to the Budget Committee for their review. June 30th, the Budget Committee submits their preliminary budget with recommendations to the Board. As I write this (in the middle of June), it is too early for the Board

to receive or review this. Prior to any budget being adopted by the Board, the budget must be published in The Hideabout, posted in 5 locations in The Hideout, and a public hearing must be held.

More on that in next months’ column, so stay tuned.

The summer is the busiest time of the year in The Hideout and there are some things to remember. Unless approved by the Board, fireworks are prohibited in The Hideout. However, sparklers on your own property are allowed. When driving around our community, please remember the speed limit is 25mph and be aware of pedestrians and bicycles. When walking on our roads, please do not walk 3 or 4 abreast and encroach into traffic lanes. When walking your dog, please pick up after your pet. Be courteous to our staff and fellow members when using our amenities.

Stay safe and enjoy all The Hideout has to offer.


Facilities Corner


is here!!!

The Public Works Department continues to work tirelessly to keep The Hideout looking amazing. We have completed most of our 2024 projects and will be correcting some stormwater issues. Our crew has been quite busy the last few months getting the pools, beaches, parks and all outdoor amenities ready for this season. The Main Pool looks amazing and all the parks are in great shape. We are currently wrapping up the line-striping of The Hideout roads and getting ready for a few other projects. The Tiki Bar deck will be extended after Labor Day Weekend and the Clubhouse deck will be replaced after Labor Day Weekend as well. As we continue our stormwater remediation repairs, we understand members will have some water issues. Stormwater remediation will continue to be a priority as we work on correcting issues that mother nature creates for us. Members with stormwater related concerns can contact my office at 570698-4100 ext. 136 or email dpolhamus@ to have this concern inspected and to determine the best course of action. Groundwater issues will arise since The Hideout is in a forest and rocky environment and members need to be aware of that not all water issues are caused by The Hideout but in fact the terrain The Hideout is located on.

The Hideout Fourth of July Fireworks Display is scheduled for Saturday, July 6th, weather permitting. The rain date

This year the Board has authorized a fireworks display for Saturday, July 6, 2024. The display will be provided by a private company hired by The Hideout. In the event the fireworks display has to be postponed because of weather conditions or other reasons, the planned reschedule date is Sunday, July 7, 2024. No other displays of fireworks are approved. The Hideout has a strict policy regarding the use of fireworks. The Hideout prohibits fireworks use except those authorized by the Board of Directors and Management. Members should familiarize themselves with the rules regarding fireworks. Members are also responsible for the actions of their guests. The Hideout will issue citations to anyone who violates this policy or any other polices. All should be aware the initial fine for illegal use of fireworks is $500.00. We ask members and their guests to respect their fellow members who do not appreciate fireworks. Our four-legged friends will also be grateful. We hope those of you who enjoy fireworks will enjoy this year’s exhibition and we are sure this display will be as great as past ones. We remind all that the Tiki Bar will be open for members and guests so they may enjoy the fireworks display. Members and guests should monitor our advisories regarding hours of operations especially for the new

With the summer, comes increased visitors to The Hideout. Increased traffic means more violations of our motor vehicle rules, especially speeding. All members and guests need to be vigilant because of increased foot traffic and as always keeping in mind our staff is continuously performing their duties. The Hideout strictly enforces all our motor vehicles rules and regulations. Public Safety will issue citations for violations. Many of our members enjoy the company of our four-legged, furry friends. Dogs provide many of our members companionship and comfort. We ask our members and guests to keep their friends under control at all times and with appropriate restraints. As we walk, our furry friends it is imperative we pick up after they have relieved themselves. The Hideout has rules governing the proper disposal of dog wastes. Our beautiful environment will be safer and kept in such a manner we can all be proud of by simply taking care of our pet’s waste. As you drive or walk through The Hideout, you will observe the many beautiful flowers and plants that adorn many of our amenities. The Hideout is fortunate to have a group of members, who are responsible for these displays, The Hideout Garden Club. These are dedicated members who continue to provide a much needed and appreciated service. The club is always interested in adding new members. Anyone interested can email We wish all our members and their guests a summer of relaxation, reflection and revitalization. The Hideout offers so many amenities and we hope everyone will enjoy the beauty offered by the many Hideout amenities. We ask everyone to work with our staff in keeping The Hideout as pristine as they found it on their visit.

On behalf of our dedicated staff please Stay Safe and have a most enjoyable summer.

Food & Beverage Corner

Asthe busy first full month of summer begins, we continue to strive to make your Food & Beverage experiences here within the community great ones; and as always, we are committed to giving you a great member experience at all of our locations.

On a few sunny and positive notes... The Tiki Bar is fully staffed, pouring fun drinks, and serving delicious food. The beach grill is now open, also fully staffed, and even offering several new sandwiches for the 2024 season. There were even a few “behind the scenes” physical and technological enhancements for these two lakeside venues that turned out great. These changes included an interior remodel (so that we are now able to serve our members at a more efficient pace), and some system reprograming of our ordering/point of sale computers throughout the Lodge (which have streamlined order and payment entry time).

If you have already managed to get a round of golf or two in this season, you’ve probably seen the new beverage cart running around the course. Occasional stops at the North pool and beach are in the works with a few practice voyages already taken. Be sure to keep a lookout for it when you are at any of these amenities. To make it easier to spot, the cart has been painted a bright shade of pink; and is operated by an equally bright and energetic staff aboard!

The last note I would like to share with our valued Hideout members is one of hope and optimism. As this article is being written, our Clubhouse and Pub have been open with reduced operating hours and a slightly smaller menu. My hope is that shortly after this issue of The Hideabout goes to print, we will be back in FULL swing. In the interim, my staff and I have appreciated everyone’s understanding and patience. As in any business, managers strive to surround themselves with talented individuals, who in turn make their business great. Unfortunately, we are currently struggling to find those individuals for The Clubhouse, specifically in the kitchen. While the “Front of the House” (servers, bartenders, bussers, etc.) is fully staffed with an excellent team; finding additional professionals to assist in the “Back of House” (line cooks), continues to evade us. We have a great new chef in Phil, and I am diligently working to surround him with the right folks to support his efforts in creating amazing food for our membership.

They bring people together from different age groups and backgrounds, creating a shared experience that can strengthen social connections and promote a sense of belonging within the community.

July 12th marks the date for Adult Bingo at the lodge. This event is filling up fast and if you have not signed up yet, we suggest you do so ASAP. Sara Sings is the emcee for this event and we all are excited to everyone there and shouting B-I-N-G-O!

Running in the 2024 Board of Directors Election


Hello Hideout members,

My name is Richard Yocum, and I am running for re-election to your Hideout Board of Directors. I grew up and lived on Long Island, NY. I met my wife Beth during high school and this year we will be celebrating our 52nd wedding anniversary. We raised three wonderful children and have been blessed with six beautiful grandchildren. I worked for Nabisco/Mondelez in the sales division for 43 years before retiring. We purchased our home in the Hideout in 2013 and in 2014 we made The Hideout our permanent home. After moving here full time, the first thing I did was to take advantage of the Dog Park amenity with our goldendoodle Dolly. Since I

was a regular there, I was asked to take over filling the doggie bag dispensers. I agreed. And even though we recently lost Dolly after 10 years, I still enjoy going there and filling up the doggie bags and tennis balls. That was the beginning of my involvement in our beautiful community. It wasn’t long before I then joined the Recreation and Governing Documents Committees and became a regular attendee at Board meetings. I joined the Garden Club 8 years ago and currently serve as its President. Being new to The Hideout, I viewed getting involved as a way to meet new people and keeping informed of what is going on in The Hideout.

In April of 2019, I was appointed by The

Hideout Board of Directors to fill a Board vacancy for the next 2 and a half years. In October of 2021, I was elected to a full 3-year term as a member of your Hideout Board. Since joining the Board, I’ve been Board liaison to many of our committees. These included Budget, Food and Beverage, Parks and Recreation, and currently Long Range Planning, Forestry and Wildlife, and Governing Documents committees. After my first year as a Board Director, the Board chose me as their Treasurer for 1 year, Board Chair for 3 consecutive years, and this year as Board President. I do have to thank the Board for their confidence in me by placing me in those officer positions.

I am asking for your vote this September.

I have a strong record of being involved in and committed to our community through committees, the Garden Club and as a member of your Board of Directors. I will always look for ways to save money to keep dues as low as possible, but never by sacrificing the safety, financial integrity and need to maintain our community.

Sincerely, Richard (Rick) Yocum

2024 Board of Directors Election Newsletter Questions for Board Candidates

1. What unique skills and abilities will you bring to the Board of Directors? How do you feel those skills and abilities will positively benefit the community going forward?

When I was working, I always enjoyed working with others on a project. Working as a team to accomplish a common goal can be personally rewarding. I have found the same thing to be true as a member of The Hideout Board. I find it very rewarding to work together with the goal being for the betterment of the Hideout. We all come from different backgrounds and life experiences. This gives each of us different perspectives and opinions on various issues. The key is to keep an open mind and listen to what others are saying. Someone else may actually have a better solution. When I served as Board Chair, that is how I thought. Whether it was during a Board discussion or accepting comments from the membership everyone is entitled to their opinion and respect. There have been times when, during a Board meeting, a member would question the wording of a resolution. I would allow a Board motion to amend the resolution or table it.

One of the realities of being a Hideout Board member is accepting that you are only one person with one vote. Anything the Board decides or votes on requires a majority vote. Of course, the objective is to have everyone in agreement. But in reality, that does not always happen and it’s important to respect that.

2. Infrastructure, capabilities and amenities are often in competition for material resources. What are your priorities in terms of these areas, and how would you prioritize expenditures?

We have pools, beaches, tennis and pickleball courts, ski hill, recreation and art centers, golf course, etc. Also, there is a Lodge, Clubhouse and Ski Lodge. The trick, is how to prioritize an amenity

improvement. First, all our amenities must be evaluated by what is needed for the safety of our members, our staff, and the structural integrity of an amenity itself. Once the safety concerns are addressed then our second priority must be maintaining what we already have in place. This can include everything from replacing old equipment in the fitness center to roof replacements. While safety and maintenance priorities need to be addressed, the result may not always be visible to our members. Once the safety and maintenance concerns are addressed, then we can get to the fun stuff. By fun stuff, I mean improving an amenity by expanding its use for the benefit of the membership. There are many amenities that would benefit from an improvement. An example is the recently expanded Tiki Bar. This was a very successful project. So much so that we will be expanding it again. Another possibility is to enclose one or both porches at the clubhouse to accommodate more member usage. While these and other ideas are great, I feel we should be improving an underused amenity which we already have. One such amenity is the ski hill. The ski hill and tube run are a great amenity when mother nature cooperates in the winter. However, this amenity sits mainly vacant for the rest of the year. We could make this area a warm weather destination. We already have the magic carpet at the tube run. Why don’t we use it for a tube run in the warm weather. They make removable tracks or runners. These can be installed, and they will accommodate the tubes we already have. Another opportunity is up at Laurel Park. We have campsites, RV spots, boat and trailer storage that could benefit from an upgrade and expansion.

3. What interests you in running for the Board of Directors, and which aspect of the Board interests you the most? If elected, what main objective do you see yourself improving on for

the community?

From the moment Beth and I settled into our home here, we knew the Hideout was a special place. If we are sitting outside and Public Safety passes by, we say “this is why we live here”. If we are at a pool, beach, tiki bar or ski hill, we say “this is why we live here”. I can say that phrase over and over at all the many amenities The Hideout offers us as members. Being able to continue to say “this is why we are here” is my reason for running for the Board of Directors.

Since being a member of your Board I have learned how complex running a community of 3600 homes really is. There are many moving parts that need to be coordinated and what keeps all those parts moving is the budget. Putting the budget together is what interests me the most. Over the last few years your Board of Directors has focused on maintaining and repairing our amenities. Almost all our buildings have new roofs and vinyl siding. The interior of the Lodge has been totally redone and the Art Center freshened up. We have replaced old and worn equipment. Provided new equipment to allow our staff to be more efficient and tackle projects without hiring outside contractors. Maintenance of our facilities and amenities must always be the number one priority of our capital budgets. The proper compensation of our staff must always be a priority of our operational budget. However, once we get caught up with the needed major maintenance expenses for our community, we can look forward to expanding and even adding to the amenities enjoyed by our membership. Bringing the budget to a point where we can afford to add to our experiences in The Hideout is my main objective.

4. As a Board member, how would you help to improve transparency and communication with the membership? Are there individual issues that you as a member have felt are difficult to

learn about, what are they, and what in your background would lead to success in working with your fellow Board members and the professional staff in improving transparency and communication?

Before being on the Board I heard members say, “improve transparency and communication”. Since being on the Board I can honestly say I don’t hear that phrase as much. I was Chair of the Board for 3 years in a row. As Chair part of my responsibilities was setting up the meeting agendas and running the meetings. One of the first things we did, when I was Chair, was instituting the use of Zoom for all public meetings of the Board of Directors. While we always like to see you personally at a meeting, this afforded the membership the opportunity to attend, view, and participate in public meetings of the Board from wherever they happened to be. Next, we started posting the agenda on our website at least one day before a public Board meeting. All our Department Managers have a column in our newspaper “The Hideabout” to provide information. All Department Managers attend our Board meetings and can answer questions. The minutes from all Board meetings are published in The Hideabout. We use email blasts to update the community on events and important news. We on the Board and our professional staff do our best to provide multiple lines of communication. Any suggestions on how we can improve this, please let us know. But communication is a two-way street. Members also have a responsibility to stay informed. So, attend meetings, read The Hideabout and Hideabout Extra, read the email blasts, and ask questions at meetings. Above all, if you have any questions, please give us a call. The phone number of all department staff is published in The Hideabout. By doing this, you won’t get any snarky answers like on Facebook.

Running in the 2024 Board of Directors Election


My name is Ed Esposito, and I am seeking your vote for a seat on the Board of Directors. I am happily married to my wife of 14 years and have two wonderful children. I have been coming to the Hideout since 2007 as a guest of my in-laws and fell in love with this community and all it has to offer. My wife and I made a decision when we ultimately purchased a second home in 2018 that we wanted to be in this community. I have been active in the Hideout community and utilize a large number of the amenities that we have. In 2021, I was honored to be selected as a member of the Long-Range Planning Committee and later voted Chairperson for 2022 and again in 2023. As my retirement from public service quickly approaches, I am seeking to serve the Hideout community in a more hands-on role on the Board of Directors.

My intent is simple: I want to ensure that we manage our association utilizing a whole-community approach that is transparent, inclusive and sustainable –now, and for the future.

Professional Experience

I have been a full-time law enforcement officer for more than 24 years and hold the rank of Captain in one of the largest law enforcement agencies in New Jersey.

I am a Certified Public Manager, Certified Emergency Manager and have attended courses in the field of public administration on topics ranging from public procurement and budgeting to leadership to managing volunteers. I have experience serving on boards and committees including labor unions, a multi-jurisdictional mitigation committee and a local emergency planning council. I also have extensive experience writing and managing millions of dollars in grants that were awarded. I have managed special projects, including the construction

of a new building, communications infrastructure (towers, WiFi, complex networks) improvements and capital equipment/vehicle acquisitions. I have successfully negotiated long-term lease agreements that resulted in new annual revenue and managed circuit consolidation projects that reduced annual operating costs.

My private-sector experience includes the operation of two privately held companies based in New Jersey that were established in 2016 and 2018. Through acquisition, efficient management and constant innovation, the companies now provide unparalleled in-person, online, digital and print educational services utilized by personnel in more than 200 agencies throughout the NJ/NY metropolitan area.

Why I want to Serve on the Board of Directors

When I think of the Hideout, I think of how great this community is, how great the members are and how many possibilities we have. We as a community must sustain what we have while balancing the vision of the community as set forth in our covenants and bylaws.

One community – endless possibilities! What does the HIDEOUT mean to me and why do I want to serve on the board?









Although I do not live in the Hideout fulltime, I still consider this community part of my home. I feel there needs to be a balance on the board to represent the

interests of everyone who is a member. After all, if you are a member, the Hideout is your home regardless of how many days you spend here each year. To make this point, if you were to visit your parents after you moved out, wouldn’t you still consider it home?


I see innovation as our community’s method for introducing new ideas, plans, methodologies, services and products. Although every idea that exists may not become a reality, I will work on a way to ensure that the ideas of our members can be submitted, reviewed and responded to. I will work to ensure that we have our existing plans, methods and services reviewed to determine if any changes are needed.


We need to be dynamic in our management style and I will be a strong advocate of this. In my opinion, a continuous and productive approach to change must be on-going and consistent. I will ensure that our management team is evaluating trends in technology, finance and recreation along with other areas so that we can be proactive. I feel that our community could be a leader in our region by placing quality, high-speed WiFi throughout our amenities. I would also use my past experience to assist in completing the cell tower project.


Efficiency is about making the best possible use of available resources and I will seek improvements with accountability. The amenities and services offered in our community are very important. While I will not support a reduction in services, I will seek solutions to make the operations more efficient. I believe that efficiency is critical to being able to sustain what we have and

improve what we have in the most fiscally responsible way.


If elected, I will keep our community moving onward and toward a better condition or higher-level. I am very proud of our community as is, but I want to seek improvements that will ultimately have a positive impact on the value of our properties and homes. I will advocate for advancements that move our community forward as opposed to just maintaining the status quo.


We are all members of the Hideout and we are all in this together. Being unified as a community is very important to me. I will work with the members of our community to strengthen partnerships or guide collaboration so that two opposing viewpoints result in one great solution. As a community we should not create boundaries or engage in actions that do not strengthen our partnerships or relationships, both internally and externally.


Being transparent is critical to ensuring trust within any community. If elected, I will ensure the level of transparency between the community, the board and management is significantly increased. I feel that knowledge is power, and that some information is available but not distributed. Ensuring the availability and exchange of appropriate information will further engage our members too.

2023 Board of Directors Election Newsletter Questions for Board Candidates

1. What unique skills and abilities will you bring to the Board of Directors? How do you feel those skills and abilities will positively benefit the community going forward?

I have more than 24 years of diverse public-sector and private-sector professional experience with a majority of it being in managerial and leadership positions. I have attended a variety of courses in the field of public administration on topics ranging from budgeting to leadership to managing volunteers. I am highly organized, have extensive planning experience and possess a wide-range of communications infrastructure and IT expertise.

I would use my skills and abilities to analyze our operations to ensure they are run in the most efficient manner possible. We can realize savings from reducing redundant tasks, monitoring trends in the

use of our amenities and evaluating the needs of our members in comparison to what is currently available within the Hideout. I would also use my experience and knowledge of communications infrastructure and IT to make the cell tower project a reality along with high-speed WiFi at amenities.

2. Infrastructure, capabilities and amenities are often in competition for material resources. What are your priorities in terms of these areas, and how would you prioritize expenditures?

I would approach this by balancing these priorities with the use of proper planning, analysis and the impact on the community. Any expenditures that could negatively affect the safety or health of our members, employees or visitors would receive the highest priority.

3. What interests you in running for the Board of Directors, and which aspect

of the Board interests you the most? If elected, what main objective do you see yourself improving on for the community?

I am interested in proactively preparing our community for the future. I want to make sure we have the best and most updated amenities possible. I also want to have our infrastructure evaluated and have a plan developed that will map out future capital improvements. Doing so will help us budget for large projects in the future.

4. As a Board member, how would you help to improve transparency and communication with the membership? Are there individual issues that you as a member have felt are difficult to learn about, what are they, and what in your background would lead to success in working with your fellow Board members and the professional staff in improving transparency and communication?

As a member, I have had difficulty at times determining what items were up for consideration before the board or what projects were under consideration in advance of a final decision being made. To improve transparency, I would advocate for the meeting agendas to be circulated well in advance of each meeting and would ensure that attending via Zoom remains an option. I also want to pursue significant upgrades in the equipment that is used for virtual meetings as members struggle to effectively attend meetings virtually. I also want to improve communication between the board and membership by allowing members to ask questions or make comments about our community at a “listening session” or “town hall” style meeting. This will also allow the board, management and the members to interact in a very transparent manner outside of the regularly scheduled meeting.

My name is Margie Conlon. My husband Dale and I purchased our home in The Hideout in 2010. We moved here on a fulltime basis in August of 2019. I retired in June of 2018 after 22 years working in accounts payable for Military Car Sales located in Woodbury, LI. We have two sons who are both very successful and

have families of their own. We have four beautiful grandchildren.

I am presently in my second year as president of the Hideout Adult Social Group. This is a social club for residents from the age of 40 and older. I have chaired many events for the HASG and

the main goal is to meet new people have lots of fun in doing so. If you are not a member, I encourage you to join the HASG. Dale and I have made so many wonderful friends since we joined in 2018. My husband and I truly enjoy living in the Hideout. If elected, I look forward to working with the present POA Board to keep The Hideout moving in a positive direction by making sound, fiscally responsible decisions.

2023 Board of Directors Election Newsletter Questions for Board Candidates

1. What unique skills and abilities will you bring to the Board of Directors? How do you feel those skills and abilities will positively benefit the community going forward?

My ability to see the glass half full rather than half empty has helped me navigate through crucial decision making. I try to have a positive attitude and listen to all sides of as issue. It seems to me that many are quick to come to conclusions without hearing or verifying all the facts. I will seek out information before making a decision.

2. Infrastructure, capabilities and amenities are often in competition for material resources. What are your priorities in terms of these areas, and how would you prioritize expenditures? Both a sound infrastructure and enjoyable

My name is Mike Hanbury. My wife and I have been visiting the Hideout on and off for the past 14 years, and totally fell in love with this community and all the people we met along the way. In 2021 it was time to retire, and it was an easy decision where we would end up. In June of 2021 we bought our forever home here in the Hideout as full -time residents and never looked back. I am not running for the Board of Directors to push an agenda, but to work hand in hand with the existing Board and future Board members to ensure this community remains the Gold Star community my wife and I fell in love with so long ago.

My wife and I were married in November of 1979, had our house built and started a

amenities are crucial to the Hideout. As we all know, there is only so much capital to go around. I will listen to the managers and committee requests and work with the board to come to a decision that will benefit all.

3. What interests you in running for the Board of Directors, and which aspect of the Board interests you the most? If elected, what main objective do you see yourself improving on for the community?

Because Dale and I so enjoy our retirement here, I feel a sense of gratitude and commitment to this community. I truly want the Hideout to continue to thrive and grow for all residents and those future families that decide to live here in the Hideout. Dale and I have been married over 50 years and have been fiscally responsible.

We both worked very hard and raised our sons to be responsible adults. We have had some challenges along the way, but, making sound fiscal decisions has helped us meet those challenges successfully. If elected, I will work with the board and the community to keep the Hideout the desirable community that it is. I believe that we can all agree that we want the Hideout to continue to be a beautiful, welcoming community.

4. As a Board member, how would you help to improve transparency and communication with the membership? Are there individual issues that you as a member have felt are difficult to learn about, what are they, and what in your background would lead to success in working with your fellow Board members and the professional staff in improving transparency and


family. We were blessed with a son in 1982 and a daughter 5 years later in 1987, both our greatest accomplishments.

I was in management my whole professional career, starting out 46 years ago as a Job site supervisor, for a Communications sales, service and installation company, which later divested into a Communications and Data Networking firm. During the early years I traveled all over the country supervising and installing large installations, from Boston to Detroit to Sacramento and back.

As time went by my responsibilities grew and I was promoted to Operations Manager, responsible for the hiring and furloughing of field technicians as well as the day-to-day scheduling of work. During

the 1990’s I was again Promoted to Vice President of Operations and was trained in a host of Communication platforms as well as Novel, Cisco, and Microsoft. I became proficient in reading schematics, architectural plans and the bidding of small to large projects.

During the 2000’s I was promoted to Vice President of the Corporation, and got involved with sales of large projects, the ordering of material and managing office personal. A position I held until I retired in June of 2021.

Since moving to the Hideout, I have been a member of the HASG, HASG Golf Leage, Hideout Bowling league, and the local Knights of Columbus.


I am a firm believer in transparency and communication. As president of the HASG I try to be very transparent and I am always ready to hear the ideas and comments from the HASG board and members. I will be available to speak with any resident who may have a concern. If I am not able to address an issue at that moment, please know that I will not rest until I have the necessary information needed to respond accordingly. I really do not believe one can be successful unless one is open to ideas and suggestions of those around you. In the end, all want the same outcome, a beautiful thriving community. I hope to achieve that goal in concert with the POA board, the community managers, the staff and the residents.

As you can see, I am a highly motivated hard worker that does not like standing on the sidelines. I have always jumped in and worked well with others, I feel my 46 years of managerial experience, my understanding of schematics, and architectural drawings can be instrumental to the Board of Directors and the community as a whole.

I would appreciate your vote, so together we can keep this community a great place to live.

2023 Board of Directors Election Newsletter Questions for Board Candidates

1. What unique skills and abilities will you bring to the Board of Directors? How do you feel those skills and abilities will positively benefit the community going forward?

I Have 43 years of managerial experience, in 1978 starting as a field supervisor managing as many as 30 technicians at a time. I was responsible for planning and

running many projects from New York to Sacramento and back. As the years went by, I was trained in the Communications and Data industries. During my tenure

I have had extensive knowledge of the everyday working of a large company, in the field, the office, and as Vice President.

I have been trained to read schematics and architectural drawings and I am proficient in preparing and responding to Bids. I feel

my extensive managerial experience, my Communication and Data Training coupled with the working knowledge of running a company would be beneficial to the Hideout and its members.

2. Infrastructure, capabilities and amenities are often in competition for material resources. What are your priorities in terms of these areas, and

how would you prioritize expenditures? Infrastructure, Capabilities and Amenities are all important in themselves to the everyday running of the community, if I had to pick one, I would say Infrastructure is the most important. If the Infrastructure i.e.: roads, buildings, parks, Golf course, pools etc. are allowed to deteriorate the community would fall like a house of cards. It is important we maintain our

Running in the 2024 Board of Directors Election

infrastructure while at the same time continue to improve upon the existing amenities, and where possible add and continue to grow within our budget.

3. What interests you in running for the Board of Directors, and which aspect of the Board interests you the most? If elected, what main objective do you see yourself improving on for the community?

I have never been the type of person that sits on the sideline and watches others endure the hard work of running a business or in this case a community. I have always made it my mission to get involved, work with others and come up with solutions for the betterment of everyone. I have been a fulltime resident of the Hideout for three years and feel it is time to step up

and offer my knowledge and talents to the community. I am not running for the Board to push an agenda; I am running to work hand in hand with the other Board members. My main objective is to be a team player, to do what it takes to work with the existing and future Board members to make the sometime difficult decisions to maintain this community as the one-ofa-kind community that my wife and I fell in love with some 14 years ago.

4. As a Board member, how would you help to improve transparency and communication with the membership? Are there individual issues that you as a member have felt are difficult to learn about, what are they, and what in your background would lead to success in working with your fellow Board members and the professional staff in improving transparency and communication?

Since we purchased our forever home in the Hideout in 2021 I have attended the majority of the Board meetings throughout the years, Transparency and Communication have always been a sticking point for both the Board and the Members, as well as prospective Board members. As property owners and members in good standing the members have the right to know what decisions their elected Board Members make on their behalf. The members must be aware of the ongoing issues and or improvements that are in progress at any given time, it is upon the members themselves, to attend committee meetings, Board workshops and the Board meetings to keep informed. I do have a few items that I feel will help with transparency and communications moving forward. 1) The agenda for the board meetings be published 72 hours minimally



My name is Maureen DiGiovanni. I am running for a position on the Board of Directors because I have had a vested interest in our community for over 15 years. My husband and I were weekenders from 2008 thru 2019, when we moved to The Hideout full time. As someone who appreciates our beautiful community and all it has to offer, I am interested in seeing it continue to grow, and thrive, for many years to come.

I think my work background dealing with many different people, and solving different issues, would be as asset to our community. Throughout my career

I’ve held many varied positions which include: Executive Secretary at Benrus Watch Company, Financial Aide Counselor at St. Francis College, Administrative Assistant to the Firm Administrator at a major NYC Law Firm, and Office Manager/ Customer Service Representative for an Independent Insurance Agent for 20 years. My responsibilities included researching, securing, and maintaining strictly confidential financial information, processing personnel records and personal client data. At St. Francis College I was in direct contact with bank & government loan offices as well as students & parents to obtain student financial aid. As an Insurance CSR I worked with clients and

insurance companies to secure & maintain proper insurance and worked to negotiate claim settlement on behalf of Personal and Commercial clients. As Office Manager my responsibilities included assisting with the detailed day-to-day operations of running a small business, vendor negotiations and basic office budgeting, bookkeeping and payroll. Prior to moving to The Hideout full time in 2019, I ran an at home Baking & Gift Basket business.

As a woman I can offer a somewhat different prospective, which I think we have been missing. I have no specific agenda since I am not part of any formal Hideout group or organization. My only agenda

48 hours prior to the meeting not the current 24 hours as it is today. This would give the members additional time to review the agenda prior to attending the meeting. 2) A member that applies for a committee position and does not get appointed, as it stands today the member does not get notification of their status, as the months go by, they ultimately get discouraged and do not reapply. I propose if a member does not get appointed for whatever reason to a committee, the member at a minimum should get an Email from the POA thanking them for their interest and letting them know at this time a position for that committee is not available and are encouraged to apply again. 3) I would like to see a list and status of ongoing projects within the community listed in the Hideabout each month. Doing this would stop the rumor mill and keep the members informed of delays and completion dates.

as a member of the Board would be to help foster more open communication between the Membership and the Board, which hopefully will encourage more community input and involvement. I would like the opportunity to help our community continue to be the best place to “Hideout”!

Thanks for your time and consideration. I hope to have your vote.

2023 Board of Directors Election Newsletter Questions for Board Candidates

1. What unique skills and abilities will you bring to the Board of Directors? How do you feel those skills and abilities will positively benefit the community going forward?

Having worked in various Customer Service positions, I know how to talk to people and more importantly how to listen to them. I can usually calm a heated situation and negotiate a reasonable resolution. I think this skill would be a benefit as a Board Member.

2. Infrastructure, capabilities and amenities are often in competition for material resources. What are your priorities in terms of these areas, and how would you prioritize expenditures? Safety related issues will always be the priority, followed by time sensitive issues.

For example, a section of roadway is in need of repair but so is an indoor tennis court, the roadway takes precedence for the obvious reasons, and would need to be repaired in a timely manner, based upon weather conditions; an indoor tennis court can be repaired any time of year. Maintenance and/or expansion of existing amenities would be based on condition, usage, and interest.

3. What interests you in running for the Board of Directors, and which aspect of the Board interests you the most? If elected, what main objective do you see yourself improving on for the community?

I am interested in our community in general, but most important to me is having Membership input. I think holding an Open

Forum / Town Hall Meeting 3 or 4 times a year is a great way to hear the concerns of our Members, what they would like to see more or less of, and ideas they may have regarding the future of our community. I’d also encourage positive feedback. My main objective is to have more open communication and greater community participation.

4. As a Board member, how would you help to improve transparency and communication with the membership? Are there individual issues that you as a member have felt are difficult to learn about, what are they, and what in your background would lead to success in working with your fellow Board members and the professional staff in improving transparency and communication?

I truly feel we have been receiving more detailed and timely information over the last year from our Environmental, Public Safety and Recreational Departments keeping us better informed than ever before. I would like to see this continue. Regarding transparency, I believe every member in good standing is entitled to receive clear and concise answers to their questions. Ideally information would be shared with the community before questions even arise. Working with fellow Board Members and fully researching information to supply Members with answers to their questions is the only way to be transparent. Specific answers to questions and providing information regarding our decision-making process would be a great way to increase Membership trust in our Board.


The Hideout Adult Social Group (HASG) believes in neighbors helping neighbors. Although the Good Neighbors Club is a function of the HASG, we are pleased to offer medical equipment to all Hideout residents.

Many people in The Hideout have donated medical equipment which they no longer have need of. These items are now being kept in a storage closet in the Indoor Sports Complex. There are lots of walkers and crutches, some canes, numerous potty chairs, and shower seats, a few wheelchairs and a scooter. If you have need of any of these for yourself or if a guest is coming for the weekend and is in need of one for that time period, you may borrow one by stopping in at the Recreation office, (570) 630-3733, and someone will show you to the storage closet.

Please remember to sign out whatever you are borrowing. If you are unable to get to the Indoor Sports Complex, please contact Carolyn Hanel, at (215) 378-7566 and she will arrange for you to get what you need. ■

Don Zichelli-POA member, 895 Deerfieldpresent

Start Time: 9:04 am

The meeting was called to order and a quorum was announced. The meeting began with the Pledge of Allegiance. The first item on the agenda was the motion to approve the Minutes of March 16, 2024 meeting.

Mr. Campbell motioned to approve. Mr. Flapan seconded the motion. Minutes approved.

FWI Capitol item Adjustment

Mr. Paul Matarazzo expressed that we’d like to get the best value we can to improve the lakes. He added that the purchase of five floating islands would not be a good value for our money. Instead, he proposed the following:

●Three floating islands on Deerfield, at the cost of $22,000 (as per Princeton Hydro).

●The addition of plantings, at the cost of $10,800 (as per Enviroscape) at the entrance pond.

Native plantings at the entrance pond would add color and nutrients to the area. Last year’s biochar will be pulled and repurposed as fertilizer to be used near the harvesters. Kathy Long will be involved. The purchase of picnic tables for use by Windemere will be considered.

Fish Stocking

We will be stocking all three lakes with regular largemouth bass this year as there are no smallmouth bass available this year. We are hoping to get the

smallmouth for next year. We will be conducting an electrofishing survey with walleye to see how many have held over from last year. This survey will provide data and insights that we can use to explore risks/benefits to lake drawdown. Mr Matarazzo shared that Roamingwood is typically 16-17 feet at center. It is drawn down to approximately 6 ft over the winter. He described Roamingwood as being designed like a smallmouth fishery. Smallmouth thrive in this cool and rocky environment.

Mr. Flappan suggested posting a sign informing those fishing of the fish limits they can pull from the lake.

Committee Concerns

There was discussion about changing the start time for the Lakes Committee meetings. Mr. Nolte made the motion and Mr. Silverman seconded the motion. The Committee approved an 8:30 start time for meetings moving forward.

General updates

Mr. Jeff Silverman asked about new buoys. Mr. Matarazzo advised that two new buoys were ordered. One will be placed in the Roamingwood Park Cover and the other by the opposing cover. Marina Docks were put into the water on April 17, 2024.

Public Safety will be storing the boats at the Main Beach area, making space at the main marina. This new location will have the benefit of being closer to the Public Safety Office.

Hideout will be hosting a boat show. First Class Marina and other vendors will be present. Demo boats and boat rides will be available.

The Board is working on taking down the collapsing house and garage on the 35-acre piece of property on Miller Road. Once cleared, the Hideout can better utilize this land.

Meeting Adjourned at 9:31am. Next meeting May 18 at 8:30am.

• 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!

• Upon registering a property as certified wildlife habitat, a $20 fee is due. The Hideout will cover this $20 fee for all residents who seek registration of their property.

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

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

Japanese Knotweed is yet another ornamental, that was widely planted throughout the U.S., that would later be listed as an invasive, noxious weed. Often, commonly planted ornamentals are later found to be detrimental to the environment (after millions are planted), and the damage is already done. Many of these plants spread rapidly, and outcompete the natives in place, that are so crucial to protect. Japanese knotweed is considered a noxious weed for a few reasons, it forms very dense stands, which in turn crowds out nearly all other vegetation. This severely degrades the landscape, and in many cases takes away wildlife habitat. Dense stands, when experiencing dry periods throughout their dormant season can also create a serious fire hazard.

Japanese knotweed is fairly easy to identify. It grows to heights of 4-8 feet, and is shrubby in appearance. The plant flaunts a white flower, in clusters that appear to be drooping. The leaves are large, and alternately arranged on the plant. Each leaf sits on a 4–6-inch stalk. If you are familiar with the Lackawaxen, or Delaware River, this plant is in very large stands along the shorelines of both rivers. By this time of year, it is nearly fully grown, and 4-8 feet tall. In many cases on the Lackawaxen and Delaware River, it is well over 6 feet tall. Japanese knotweed when mature, generally has a thick stalk that resembles the size of an immature tree, rather than a plant.

Japanese knotweed can grow anywhere, but is often found in open places, this is common to many invasive plants that rapidly spread. Japanese knotweed can be found in empty gardens, roadsides (especially roadsides recently repaired that have bare dirt), and river / stream banks. Knotweed growing near river banks poses issue to river access. When large stands of the plant arise, walking through them can be nearly impossible for humans and animals. This poses a true threat to recreation, and wildlife. Knotweed reproduces in two ways, one being via seed like many other plants, and by long rhizomes (just like phragmites). Rhizomes are often how large stands of Japanese knotweed come to fruition. This is why chemical control such as glyphosate, is often necessary. Mechanically pulling the plant does not guarantee it wont spread.

If you believe you may have Japanese knotweed on your property, we recommend you contact the Wayne County conservation district for instruction, or information on the best way to handle the plants. The conservation district can be found at Wayne-Conservation-District .

HASG Golf League News

The HASG golf league is nothing but fun and socializations. Unfortunately, we were woken to the realities of life in the first week of June. One of our golfers and a Captain went out to play golf early Monday morning and collapsed on the second hole. Dave Kline had just spoken to me on Thursday and told me how much he loved our league and exclaimed how happy he was with the amount of people he had met. He also laughed and showed me the Garmin watch he had won at last year’s luncheon. Dave wasn’t one to talk much but he seemed really happy. Dave, we all mourn you and will miss you. We will pray for your wife, Mary, and we will take solace in the fact that you were on the golf course doing what you enjoy when the Lord said it was your time.

We are now in our fourth week of league play and Tim Egan has taken over first place but he has only played two weeks so Marilyn Sevigny is breathing down his neck! Kenny Betros is also coming up fast and with two money wins to Tim’s one,

July 2024

and Tom Morley and Al Marino are just ahead of her by a few points.

In the putting contest, we have Tony Zoppi and Sheila Petras in first with an average of 9 putts each but both only golfed once out of the 3 weeks. So the real leaders with three weeks each are Larry Keifhaber, Rich Martinez (last year’s winner}, Dominic Rotindo, Tom Morley and Kim Donlon all tied for the name on the plaque! This should get real interesting as all the golfers play with different people and try to keep their average scores up there!

Anyway, we are having great fun and making new acquaintances. While we have a full compliment of players this year, I suggest that anyone who is interested in having fun, meeting people and playing golf contact me and we will put your name on the list for next year. The early bird catches the worm! Our regular players get on the list first, the subs for this year are next and new people next. Most of the subs are playing this year every week because we always have



If you like playing golf, meeting new people and having an enjoyable Monday and/or Friday morning on the links, we welcome old and new players alike. You do not have to be an expert golfer to join. We WELCOME women of all abilities.

Opening day starts on May 31st and ends on August 30th with a group lunch at the Clubhouse on Friday, August 30th. However, many of us continue play ing right through the fall, weather permitting.

Most games will be played at the Hideout although we will try to book one day in July and one in August at other courses within a 30-minute drive from

the HO just for some variety.

Members are required to pay $10 in dues which is used for prize money throughout the season as we will often incorporate fun games, i.e. lowest number of putts, 3-club play, best team score in a scramble, etc. In addition, we’re asking everyone to pay $5.00 to the pro shop to obtain a Hideout handicap. You will need to have 5 scores recorded to obtain that handicap. Ideally, we’d like everyone to have a handicap by mid-July.

If interested, please email Carolyn Hanel at cbhanel@ or Lili Mahlab (Seiden) at

Navigating Low Back Pain in Our Lake Community

For those who cherish lakeside living—engaging in activities like boating, fishing, or soaking up the serene atmosphere—the lake offers a perfect escape. Yet, this idyllic lifestyle can sometimes be disrupted by low back pain, a common ailment among residents.

Understanding and Preventing Low Back Pain

Low back pain can arise from various lake-related activities. Maneuvering a kayak, casting a fishing line, or carrying supplies to the dock can strain the muscles and ligaments in the back. To combat this, current research advocates for a proactive approach focusing on prevention through physical fitness. Core strengthening exercises and flexibility training are vital as they help stabilize the spine and reduce the risk of injury. Studies also highlight the benefits of regular preventive exercises that target the back, hips, and abdominal muscles. These not only enhance physical capacity but also improve biomechanics during everyday activities, reducing stress on the lower back. Education plays a crucial role in prevention. Knowing the correct techniques for lifting and bending is essential, particularly in environments like the lake where uneven terrain and lifting heavy objects are common. Workshops and regular consultations with physical therapists can provide the necessary guidance to prevent back pain before it starts.

Learn More on “PT Pulse”

To delve deeper into managing and preventing low back pain, tune into our podcast, “PT Pulse,” hosted by myself, Bernie Povanda:

Joined by Dr. Kelly Williams, we explore the latest research and offer practical advice for maintaining an active, painfree lifestyle.

By understanding and applying these strategies, we can continue to enjoy our lake activities with less pain and more pleasure, ensuring that the lake remains a source of joy and not discomfort.

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. ■

To be complacent in my space alone

Without TV or need for phone

Just I content in this my place

Since I dropped out the daily race

This time that I alone now seek

Nestled in my space inside I sneak a peek

I feel the warmth of a Summer’s Day

In some way it is as if I pray

These moments mine and mine alone

No one may take away

As I have said in lines before

This is my place my day

So what have I discovered now

No need to act or take a bow

Alone my heart beats just the same

On this fine day no need to win the game

Fortune has its own place reserved

Time and work gave me what I deserve

And when the clock says it is time I will have said it all

In the rhymes I leave behind. WOLRAD
