FROM ANDREW MILLER

Board Secretary’s Message

A

big thank you to the members of The Hideout for re-electing Lou Delli Santi and me for another term on the Board of Directors. We look forward to continuing to work on your behalf for the next three years. We also thank the other candidates who ran this year. It's not an easy process, and we appreciate all of you. The Nominating Committee did an outstanding job under challenging circumstances. But their hard work paid off, and we had a record voter turnout. This year we accomplished much.

community to decide on the issue of shortterm rentals and received about 2,400 votes - a record turnout in Hideout elections. In the time ahead, we will have to look at Lake and Salem townships' newly enacted ordinances and how they work with ours.

We successfully navigated through all the challenges of COVID-19 while we still are carefully monitoring any new variants that may arise. We've dealt with the Great Resignation and have been continuously recruiting new talent across all of our departments.

And we celebrated our community's "Golden Anniversary" with a series of fun 50+2 activities this summer.

We launched new free winter recreational activities at Brooks Lake while addressing issues at the Ski Hill. We are pleased to report that the Hill just recently passed State inspection and that we are upgrading the electrical equipment. All we need now is for Mother Nature to cooperate.

All this is possible because of our dedicated staff, ably led by Community Manager Larry Frotten. All of our volunteer committee members help guide the Board in making critical decisions. And our Board of Directors, that worked tirelessly throughout the year.

We finally were able to secure a contract with a cell tower company, Liberty Tower, interested in providing services to the community. Stay tuned as things develop; hopefully, we will see movement as economic conditions become more apparent. We brought home the gold again, with the Community Associations Institute awarding us Gold Star status. This recognizes how well our community is operated, that our finances are strong, and that we take steps to protect our quality of life. In this regard, we allowed the

The Board enacted a balanced budget while dealing with record inflation and the need to increase wages to retain and recruit staff.

Next year will have its challenges. Inflation doesn't appear to be letting up, we are still having to address staffing issues, and there is much economic uncertainty. But as the past few years have demonstrated, this Board, our staff, and the membership are up to meeting every challenge. I have no doubt we will continue to thrive and be the top recreational community in the Northeast. In closing, I look forward to working with the Board and supporting our new Board President, Mike Terranova, during the upcoming year. Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving! ■

FROM LARRY FROTTEN

Community Manager’s Message

M

embers and Staff,

The leaves are falling, indicating the end of a colorful Autumn and a change in weather to a wintery mix. We encourage all our members to secure their property before the seasons change. Some of our members will be relocating to warmer climates, and we hope they have made the necessary preparations for their homes and wish them safe travels. Every year we receive calls from members who discover pipes have frozen in their homes resulting in significant damage. Our Public Safety and Maintenance Departments are on constant alert for these types of issues; however, these issues are sometimes difficult to observe. This is a very busy time for The Hideout staff as we prepare our community for the coming months. Our stormwater efforts will continue until the weather prevents us from completing our tasks. Our Golf Course will stay open until the weather does not permit. We have begun the process of securing our outdoor facilities and turning off the water supply to those buildings. We have removed the buoy markers from Roamingwood Lake, and the docks will be removed by our private contractor. Our Lake drawdown has begun, and you will see Roamingwood water receding to 5 feet below normal or what we call pool. Our outdoor furniture will also be secured for the winter months. We are prepared with our equipment and materials to handle the winter storm challenges. This is the time of year when our Recreation Department promotes many fun activities. This year our annual Christmas Tree Lighting will be on Saturday, December 3, at 6 PM. The event is held at Roamingwood Park. This is just one of the many events on the Recreation calendar, and we urge all to watch social media and The Hideabout

Extra or contact Recreation for further details.

We want to express our appreciation to all who took the time to vote in the election for the Board of Directors. We are also thankful to all the members who were candidates. This year we saw a larger-than-normal candidate field. The Hideout Nomination Committee made some significant changes in how we conduct our election process, and these changes enhanced our process and will work to benefit our community. We are grateful to the committee for their efforts as we are for all committee members who offer advice to our administration and Board of Directors in a joint effort to make The Hideout the outstanding community it is. This is the time of year when we observe significant holidays. The first is Thanksgiving, which brings family and friends together. We hope the Thanksgiving holiday will offer you time to reflect on all the blessings you are fortunate to enjoy. This special holiday allows us time to share valuable time with our family and friends. We want to ask all who operate vehicles in our community to be cognizant of our 25 MPH speed limit. Our Public Safety Department is on an initiative to be vigilant for traffic violators, and citations will be written. We also urge drivers to be cautious as our employees go about completing their tasks. We wish all the happiest of Thanksgiving and hope you will take the time to refresh and enjoy the spirit of the season. ■

I

t has been a busy first month as the new Public Safety Manager of The Hideout. I am a retired police Lieutenant from Rutgers University Police/Public Safety Department with over 28 years of experience in law enforcement and corrections. There is plenty to learn in my new position and I am thankful for Operations Supervisor, Tina Corma and Administrative Assistant, Kelly Slattery, for all their assistance and knowledge in As I continually say, this is the time of making the transition from retirement to year to volunteer to serve on one or more Manager of the Public Safety Department of our various committees.

And thank you to all committee members, committee chairs, managers, staff, and Board liaisons who help make our committee process a success.

Have your chimney checked by a professional and cleaned to remove possible buildup of combustible creosote. This is important as The Hideout has had some chimney fires in past years. Make sure your chimney has a spark arrestor to prevent roof fires.

Use the proper fitting fire screen to prevent sparks from escaping your fire. Keep anything combustible away from the front of your fireplace; rugs, newspapers etc. Check your fire extinguishers periodically to insure they are in good working order. Fire extinguishers should be mounted in the kitchen, garage, and workshop. PROPANE HEATERS/ELECTRIC BASEBOARD Keep combustible materials away from your indoor heater like curtains and bedding. Please remember, your propane heater is not a table. Do not put anything on it. It is also not a dryer. Do not use it to dry your clothes. If your indoor propane heater has an orange flame instead of a blue one, stop using it immediately and have it checked by a professional. Make sure you have working carbon monoxide detectors in your home. Happy Thanksgiving and have a safe and healthy holiday season. ■

6 • NOVEMBER 2022 FROM LISA GREEN, COMMUNITY RELATIONS MANAGER

Communications Corner

I

must start by saying that this is one of the most beautiful fall foliage seasons I have seen in my 30+ years here in northeast Pennsylvania! I've seen some of the pictures our members have taken and posted, which are breathtaking! I'm sorry to see the vivid colors go. As the winter season begins, please keep your eye out for all communications sent from the Community Relations department to inform the members of the events each department is sponsoring and any weather-related news from The Hideout POA. The Hideabout Extra is produced to give you a day-by-day guide of what is available to do in The Hideout. It also provides any updates since printing the previous month's Hideabout Newspaper. You can find The Hideabout Extra in the "bird feeders" at the Main, North, Stock Farm Member Gates and the Main and North Mailbox areas. The Hideabout Extra is updated biweekly, and you'll know it's an updated version by its change in color. Thank you for following the "official" Hideout POA Facebook page! We keep it as up-to-date as possible with what to do in The Hideout, amenity hours, schedule changes, and all amenity closures. It is a valuable form of communication between the Administration and the membership, especially during the more unpredictable winter months. Search @thehideoutpoa on Facebook and look for The Hideout

Flower!

Check The Hideout TV Channel (channel 920) and Hideout email blasts for current information from the Administration. You are missing out if you haven't signed up for email blasts! If you have any questions or suggestions on how we can best communicate with you, please don't hesitate to call me at (570) 630-3707 or email me at lgreen@thehideout.us. I look forward to hearing from you! The Communications Committee is looking for some additional members. If you are interested in volunteering, please visit the POA Office to apply or find the form on The Hideout website at hideoutassoc.com. I want to wish all our United States Marines a happy birthday this month and thank all United States Military Veterans for their service. I also think of the families of the service members who serve as well. We would not live in the country we do without their sacrifices. I want to thank Brandon Downs for all he does to help Community Relations succeed. From my family to yours, have a happy and healthy Thanksgiving! As always, enjoy your time in The Hideout! ■

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

FROM DENNIS POLHAMUS, FACILITIES MANAGER

Facilities Corner

H

appy Fall!!

Fall is here and the leaves are dropping. I would like to remind all of our members to please clean out the drainage ditch and culvert pipe that is located on their properties to help prevent clogged culvert pipes and debris from being carried downstream this helps our stormwater management greatly. The Public Works department has been very busy getting all of our snow plows, salt spreaders, and equipment ready for the snow and ice. November can be a tricky month when it comes to weather so we are prepared for whatever mother nature has in store for us. We would like to remind all of our members to please park vehicles off of the roads and far back onto their properties to prevent damage from our fleet when snow removal takes place. Some members have items close to the road which also should be removed to prevent damage from plowing. We have placed our order for 2 new Ram 3500 Dump body trucks and will be taking delivery in January. These trucks will be replacing 2 of our oldest trucks and will assist in snow removal procedures. We are also working on some additional equipment to assist with snow removal, stormwater management, and general maintenance work. We will be purchasing a line stripping machine this winter to line strip all of The Hideout parking lots in house moving forward. The main roads will continue to be bided out for line stripping. The Public Works department has a list of projects to complete in 2023. Some of the items on the list include relining the main pool, repairing the concrete around the main and north pools and repaving some of our parking lots. 2024 we will

begin our road paving project for the entire community this project will take a lot of planning and will be bided out in late 2023. Stormwater management continues to be our focal point year after year. Members can see some of the work our road crew continues to complete and this works not only assists with directing stormwater into our lakes but also enhances the appearance of The Hideout. 2022 we did not encounter some of the storms we have received in previous years which has helped our crews to catch up on past projects. We do have a significant list of culvert pipes, drainage ditches, and swale work that needs to be completed for the remainder of 2022 and going into 2023. Our team has worked tirelessly this summer to clean up our parks and amenities and to ensure all outside restrooms and gathering areas are clear from trash and debris. We have repainted the Main Gate and North Gate guard shacks and mulched all of our playgrounds and landscape areas. This is a yearly task to help make The Hideout beautiful. Trash and recycling will continue to operate under normal hours. MondayFriday 6am-8pm Saturday and Sundays 8am-8pm. Bulk garbage drop off is Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturdays 11am-12:30pm for members in good standing with a pass for Bulk garbage. Passes can be obtained at our maintenance Complex by reaching Desiree Detres at Ext 133 or email ddetres@thehideout.us. ■

Larry Frotten, Community Manager advised that the Tiki Bar is in need of renovations for OSHA compliance. 5. 2023 BUDGET BOARD APPROVAL MOTIONS: 22-65 MOTION: RESOLVED THAT the 2023 Annual Assessment of $1,585.00 will be charged to each lot to be used for Operating Expenses.

MANAGEMENT REPORTS: a) Financial Manager, Debra Tramantano Dues Paid in Full: As of 09/14/22, we have 3,593 lots paid in full which is 98.7% of our budgeted number of 3,640. This leaves 47 lots to be paid in full to reach 100% of our budget for the year. As of the end of August, we have collected $170,867 of delinquent dues payments against our budget of $80,000 which represents 114% more than budgeted. August Financials: • Year-to-date amenity income as of the end of August 2022 was $2,352,825 vs our budget of $1,780,298. This is an increase of $572,527 over budget. • Year-to-date amenity expense as of the end of August 2022 was $6,218,365 vs. our budget of $5,545,282. This is an increase of $673,083 over budget. The net between income and expense variances is a deficit of $100,556. The deficit is primarily a result of higher salaries and overtime. For our summer amenities, Pool and beaches were on target with income but $24.8K over on expenses; Marina income was $23.5K more than budgeted and expenses were on track. Food & Beverage was $153K more in income than budgeted and expenses were $179K more than budgeted, netting a deficit of $26K.

Find the right volunteer opportunity for you

G

iving back to one’s community can provide a sense of purpose and improve an individual’s overall wellbeing. Data from Volunteer Hub indicates that people who volunteer improve their health by strengthening their bodies, improving their moods and reducing stress. Volunteerism also produces additional benefits, including boosting one’s positive perception to others. A study from CareerBuilder found 60 percent of hiring managers see volunteerism as a valuable asset when making recruitment decisions. Furthermore, human resources executives attest that contributing to a nonprofit can improve leadership skills.

AASSKK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE!

By understanding the value behind volunteer work - for the people or organization on the receiving end as well as the volunteer - more individuals may decide to donate their time and services. However, finding the right volunteer opportunity may take some trial and error. The following are some tips for finding the right fit. · Consider skills and interests. Before choosing a volunteer opportunity, make a list of activities that you enjoy. This may help guide volunteer choices. For example, if you like hiking, you may volunteer to clean up a local park. · Assess your skill levels. Is there something you are particularly adept at doing? For example, if you are a certified public accountant, you may be able to volunteer by mentoring young accounting students, or doing taxes or bookkeeping tasks for the elderly or less fortunate. · Think about commitment level. Figure out how much time you can spend volunteering. Maybe you only have the weekends or a few hours in the evenings? Understanding how much free time you have can help you choose opportunities that fit within these parameters. · Research potential organizations. Not all nonprofit groups are created equal. Utilize resources such as CreativeVolunteer that vet charitable groups to determine if they are trustworthy. · Define your goals. Have goals in mind when selecting opportunities. Defining a goal can help you maintain the motivation to volunteer and see a project through to completion. · Start small. Wade into a volunteer opportunity slowly to see if it is the right fit. This may include volunteering one day a week or month. Increase the time you spend volunteering once you’ve found the right place for you. Volunteering can bring joy to a person’s life, especially when individuals find an inspiring opportunity. ■

Community this Month? Bats, Chiroptera

• This month’s article is going to have a different twist than our normal informative writings on a certain animal’s characteristics and lifestyle. This November bats are going to be the topic of discussion, but more so why they are disappearing at an alarming rate!

• Pennsylvania has 8 bats on its endangered species list, a threat to many of the bats on this list is whitenose syndrome. White-nose syndrome (WNS) is caused by a toxic fungus (Pseudogymnoascus destructans) that grows where bats are likely to hibernate for the winter. The name “white-nose” Committee Opening came from the appearance of bats • One more opening is available in the infected by this fungus; which left them with a white muzzle and wings covered Wildlife and Forestry Committee, the in the fungal growth. Due to this fungus committee currently has 7 members, preferring to grow in places such as caves, with a maximum capacity of 8 allowed. mines, and rock crevices; only hibernating This committee is suited for those that bats are affected by WNS.

• The Pocono Raptor Center presentation originally scheduled for November has been moved to this coming spring due to availability, and weather conditions.

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: 570-698-4100 x120 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. ■

Did you know that The Hideout has had a TNR (Trap, Neuter, Return) program in place since Spring 2019? Members that are observing feral/community cats roaming around their property can get enrolled in the TNR program by completing the online, PDF fillable “Consent to Trap Form” available here https://www.pdffiller.com/en/link_to_fill/672769522.htm. Are you interested in getting involved as a C Alley Cats volunteer or wish to make a donation to their non-profit organization? Please email calley@ptd.net or call them at (570) 226-6780.

• As forementioned above, WNS syndrome infects bats while they are hibernating in the same locations the toxic fungus that causes WNS prefers to grow. The way the WNS eventually kills hibernating bats is not what most would imagine. When bats hibernate, much like black bears and other hibernating animals, their metabolic rate slows, and their body temperature lowers to conserve energy as they rely on their fat stores built-up throughout fall and summer to survive the cold weather. When a bat is infected with WNS, it causes them to wake up at a much more frequent rate to warm temperature swings during their hibernation, which in turn causes them to rapidly use their fat stores that were needed to carry them through the winter. More often than not this causes the bat to die of starvation before they ever reach the coming spring. According to the National Park Service, WNS infection can cause bats to use fat stores twice as fast as healthy bats that have not been infected. • WNS spreads very similarly to many diseases and illnesses throughout the human and animal world. Bats can contract WNS via the surfaces that it grows on, or by coming in contact with other infected bats hibernating nearby. The National Park Service also warns that humans can spread pseudogymnoascus destructans via their shoes, gear, and clothing when exploring or hiking in places

such as caves and old mine sites. It is important to note any fungus hitching a ride on your person before entering these delicate locations that are crucial to a bat’s survival. WNS has wiped out nearly 99% of Pennsylvania’s little brown bat population, but there is hope.

• Researchers in Pennsylvania have been experimenting with methods to control pseudogymnoascus destructans, and may be on to something that could provide a very valuable control. Researchers from Temple and Lock Haven have been spraying the fungus with polyethylene glycol 8000, which is non toxic to humans and animals. Spraying the fungus with polyethylene glycol 8000 causes the chemical to hold onto water molecules, which in turn stresses the fungi in hopes that they will not germinate. It has shown in certain locations that the treatment can reduce WNS infections by up to 65% in bats. Research still has a long way to go on the matter, but promising strides are being made every day.

Pet ownership is rewarding in various ways, and those rewards could be one reason why pet owners are welcoming additional pets into their homes, even if only temporarily. According to the 20212022 biennial APPA National Pet Owners Survey by the American Pet Products Association, 11 percent of pet owners also foster pets. The selfless act of fostering saves the lives of an untold number of animals each year, as shelters confronting overcrowding may not have the resources necessary to keep pets healthy until they find an adoptive parent. For example, the ASPCA notes that neonatal (zero to four weeks) and pee-wee (four to eight weeks) kittens are extremely vulnerable and do not often survive without round-the-clock care. Overburdened shelters with limited resources are not always capable of providing such care. In such instances, shelter-sponsored fostering programs teach foster caregivers how to care for kittens so they can survive the first eight weeks and stay healthy enough to be spayed or neutered and ultimately adopted. ■

PHYSICAL THERAPY

Strength Training for Pain Relief By: Bernard J. Povanda, PT, COMT, FAAOMPT Strength training is often associated with personal training or athletics, instead of traditional rehabilitation for pain relief. Strength training elicits physiological responses as you strengthen your muscles through external resistance. It takes about 6-8 weeks of consistent resistance training to see results. There are misconceptions surround strength training and rehabilitation. Strength training isn’t safe Some believe patients can get injured bending forward, putting too much weight on the body or moving the wrong direction. In some cases, this may be true. However, it’s best if the patient begins strength training under the guidance of the physical therapist. This way, they can learn the appropriate technique and exercises. Physical therapists lack know-how

Patients worry about a lack of access to equipment or how to perform exercise without supervision. Performing the exercises individually is possible if the patient is interested enough to learn. Should patients require more help they can visit their clinic more frequently or ask, for assistance, so they can train safely.

If something hurts, shouldn’t it make sense to avoid moving? Movement is safe if you don’t push yourself too hard. When the patient starts experiencing something beyond mild discomfort maybe, it’s a sign for them to reduce the intensity. If adjusting the intensity doesn’t seem to alleviate the symptoms the exercise may be too aggressive. The major importance and benefit of strength training is to make the patient less prone to injuries by strengthening the muscles. By training consistently and appropriately, we can withstand the forces placed on our extremities while performing regular daily activities as well as recreational activities. ■

YOUR “SOMETIMES” Sometimes life is filled with questions… Why, when, how? Sometimes we wonder in despair… What do I do now? Sometimes feeling lost, confused, And discouraged we give up! Sometimes we feel deep inside That our prayers were not enough; Or that somehow God didn’t hear, Or maybe He doesn’t care And has left us to find our own way, Carrying burdens too hard to bear! Be patient. God hears every prayer, Though He may take His time, So that you might learn to trust Him In your troublesome “sometimes.” So don’t give up When things don’t go just as you planned. God’s ways are not like ours, He has His own time span. Just keep on believingWith hope and trust you’ll find, When God says “No” to your request, He’ll better your “sometimes.” And while He closes one door, Another He opens wide. That you may enter with confidence And in His peace abide. For each day is a precious gift Woven by God’s hand; And even setbacks, to our surprise, Are all part of His plan. So walk on with courage, As each mountain that you climb Brings you even closer to God, In the midst of your “sometimes.” “For with GOD nothing is impossible!” Like 1:37 by: Millie Torzilli ©

2022 Hideout Harvest Festival

he 2022 Harvest Festival was an incredible event for the community T members, staff, and volunteers. This

year’s Harvest Fest offered music by DJ Billy, fresh food, hot and cold beverages, games/competitions for all ages, and nearly a dozen vendors from within the community. The pumpkin painting contest brought out the artistic abilities of the participants. The pumpkins were all unique, scary, and funny. The judges had their work cut out for them with the pumpkin painting contest as well as the apple-pie bake-off competition. There were not many participants but the time and effort put into making these pies was evident. The biggest draw was the

pie eating contest. Contestants had four minutes to eat as much pie as they could and the contestant with the least amount of pie remaining would be crowned the 2022 pie eating contest winner. Attendees gathered around in a massive group to cheer on our young pie eating contestants. Each contestant had their hands full with competition as well as their bellies from the amount of pie consumed within the four-minute window. The Hideout Recreation department would like to thank all staff, volunteers, and members for coming together to make this event memorable. By: Noah Robinson ■

COMMITTEE MEETING MINUTES

Lakes Committee Minutes - August 27, 2022 Chair: Iggy Rivera Members: Kent Fairfield, Arnie Milidantri, Judy Restaino, Jeff Silverman Zoom: Bob Kravetz Staff: Paul Matarazzo Board: Andrew Miller Excused: Kirsten Dolan, Steve Flapan, Rick Nolte The meeting was called to order at 9:02 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 J. Silverman, a second by K. Fairfield, and approval by all (5-0-0). A motion was approved (5-0-0) to reappoint the following to the Lakes Committee: Kent Fairfield, Rick Nolte, Judy Restaino, Iggy Rivera, and Jeff Silvermnan. Iggy Rivera was reappointed as Chair and wrote up the CMR. Lake Survey Conducted with Princeton Hydro: Mike Hartshorne was on site to do the HAB (harmful algae bloom) shoreline sampling and the SAV (submerged aquatic survey). A full report will be forthcoming. Since Roamingwood seems to have a low amount of weeds, we might not need to add more sterile grass carp to the lake next year. Deerfield Aeration Shed: The exhaust fan was creating a nuisance noise so it was oiled as a temporary fix but parts were ordered by maintenance to replace the fan. Princeton Hydro tested both aeration compressors within the shed and found that one unit yielded low compression so the warranty/repair is being investigated. E. Coli Seasonal Results: There were only 2 failures during the 2022 season whereas there were 5 last year. Testing will cease after Labor Day weekend. Brooks Lake Floating Islands: All new islands have bloomed and are in great

shape. An old island has been removed (10 years old this year) as it could not be anchored any longer. Deerfield Lake: It looks good. The Truxor will be used for the lily pads. NWF Property Registrations: All Hideout lakes are now registered with the National Wildlife Federation. Brooks, the entrance pond, and Roamingwood Lake have been certified as wildlife habitat as of August 16, 2022. End of Season Boat Removal: All boats must be removed from the marina following Columbus Day. Seaman’s Marina will remove the docks afterward. New Concerns and Discussion: BioChar: it was discussed with Princeton Hydro and might be a good option for the smaller lakes. A.Milidantri brought up areas in Roamingwood Lake that have been built up due to storm runoff. This changes the flow of the lake in areas. Many kayaks on the racks at Deerfield have no current stickers. If these kayaks are not being used, they should be removed from the racks. A discussion ensued about the number of sheds, etc. that are too close to the lake, and when newcomers see this, they believe it is allowed. Something should be done. Items Tabled: FWI (floating wetland islands) proposal- Nature Works is getting an estimate for next year. Fall walleye stocking in Roamingwood – depends upon availability. The next meeting will be on September 17th. The meeting was adjourned at 10:02 with a motion by K. Fairfield, a second by A. Milidantri and approval by all. Respectfully submitted, Judy Restaino ■

Generator Permit A Hideout 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. ■

Relationships come in many forms Born at first we crawl to find Love and joy and peace of mind Growing up there are newfound friends Always there around the bend Never knowing what will be As we move on by land and sea Journeys take us far at times As we go through life’s relentless climb Finding love that starts anew Fighting challenges as we get through Always wanting a little more We work hard at every chore The years begin to show their wear Heartfelt moments bring on tears So many through life we have cheered Then mourned them for their love so dear Till that day when we crawl again That is when life’s relationships end.

THE HIDEABOUT NEWSPAPER

On Saturday, September 24th family and friends gathered at Devon Delk’s home to celebrate the 100th birthday of Ruth Eckhoff, Devon’s Mom. Ruth spends two months each year in The Hideout, enjoying Mah Jongg twice a week, dinner with the Book Club, reading a couple of books a week, jigsaw puzzling, and soaking up the sunshine on the decks. The family was treated to a video collection of photos starring Ruth as a youngster from Long Island, her college years at Laselle Jr. college (now Laselle College), marriage to John Eckhoff, years as a restauranteur (where she made the Coffee Shop’s 10-12 pies each day) as Register of Probate for Carroll County, NH and then retirement in Gainesville, FL where she currently lives. Ruth lives independently, doing her own yard work, shopping, and participating in the social activities of Turkey Creek Forest where she has lived for 30+ years. She keeps in touch with her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren via text, email and FaceTime since being hard of hearing is her only health issue.

It was such a gift to all who gathered to celebrate the life and longevity of this very special woman!

Below are photos of Stroke/Stop the Bleed/Narcan Training. Ray Bennett, BSN RN CEN CFRN CTRN SCRN TCRN NRP, a volunteer for the LAFD, came in to provide extra training for Public Safety.

Roamingwood Sewer and Water Association

With Gratitude and sincerest Thank You to Mr. John M Egan After 30 years of dedicated service on the Roamingwood Sewer & Water Board of Directors, John has decided not to pursue another term as a member of the Board. Although we would love to write all of the ways he has contributed to the success of our organization, over his three decades with us, it is just impossible to list them all. However, we would like to express to the community, what John has meant to RS&W. So, in extremely broad strokes, we will attempt to paint a picture for you of who John Egan is to us. John, as a professional, brought to RS&W the fruits of an education from Scranton Preparatory School, a BH from Villanova University, and an MBA from Scranton University. The experience and guidance he provided, throughout his tenure on the board, was the culmination of his 48-year career as a Financial Advisor and Broker-Manager. Because of his immense knowledge and dedication to the organization, many of our financial decisions were filtered through John over the years and most prominently in this last decade with us. The planning, preparation and execution of the entire Infrastructure Replacement Project has been, by far, the most difficult to navigate for every board member and employee involved. The benefit of having John as a financial expert on our team, to facilitate understanding of the financial decisions RS&W faced throughout the three initial phases and into our fourth current phase, has been immeasurable. What he contributed within our organization and community was invaluable. Yet, John’s volunteer efforts have not been limited to just RS&W and the Hideout. For many years, he also shared his time and expertise with students at Marywood University, as a teacher and volunteer. Who, we are certain, are as grateful to him as we are. Still, John is so much more to RS&W and this community than his education and experience. Most importantly he is a man of integrity. Whether instilled by his upbringing and/or his service in the U.S Marine Corps, he is uncompromising. Make no mistake, John will defend something he believes in, passionately if necessary. There is no question if he does not agree with something, he will stand firm for what is right and, on countless occasions, championed for our organization. However, when you know John, his big friendly smile and more often than not, infectious laugh will be the traits that stand out when in his presence. There is no doubt his family and friends, know him for his mischievous sense of humor. He and his family are longtime residents and well-known members of our community. He is as dedicated to his family and living a good life as he is to his causes. John can often be seen out on the Hideout Golf Course, taking in the lake view with Mya the dog from his dock and enjoying boat rides on the lake with his family. He is also a regular at our Club House, often seen relaxing or catching a game as a diehard Eagles and Pirates fan. A true lover of the Hideout. In too few words, but hopefully enough for the community to see, this is who John Egan was and is to the RS&W Organization. So, the best way we know how to show John our gratitude is to ask, if you see him out, be sure to Thank him for his service to this Country and your Community. Maybe even treat him to a pint of Guinness! He has served every member of the Hideout, past and present, well and earned it. The RS&W Organization is forever grateful and thanks you again John. We will absolutely miss you on our team.

HIDEOUT SPORTSMAN’S ASSOCIATION Since 1995, The Hideout Sportsman’s Association has strived to improve the knowledge and skill of its members and neighbors in matters related to the proper care and handling of firearms, the management of shooting ranges and to develop fellowship, sportsmanship and good citizenship among its members. To that end, The Hideout Sportsman’s Association will partner with a local state-of-the-art indoor shooting range to offer courses in basic beginners pistol shooting and safety classes. These courses and others will be offered through The Hideout Sportsmen’s Assoc. for a limited time. Interested individuals should contact Ray West at (570) 616-5233 for details. They meet on the first Monday of the month at 7 p.m. at the POA. ■

HIDEOUT ADULT SOCIAL GROUP The HASG was formed in 1980 to provide an opportunity for Hideout members, including renters, age 40 and over, to meet with and socialize with other members of our community. If you enjoy meeting new friends, socializing with old friends, and like to party, then the H.A.S.G. is for you. Typical events include dinner dances, picnics, luaus, a “social” golf league, local outings, travel, and anything else you can think of that involves socializing, dining, and just generally having a great time with wonderful friends new and old. The H.A.S.G. meets the second Thursday of each month (except December) at 1:00 p.m. at the Main Lodge. Refreshments are always served. All interested Hideout members are welcome to attend our meetings. Let us know you’re coming and a member of our Welcoming Committee will greet you. For more information please contact: Barbara Kelczewski (570) 503-0855, beesafe@echoes.net. ■
