Ruebel, Jeff Stevenson, Marie Holder, Maryann Coulter, wayne Smith, Sharon
Phillips, Lisa Cox.
Jim Cox introduced Dee
Wurtz who read the opening letter from President Kent Tompkins.
Hearing the names of
those who are no longer with us reinforces my decision not to be here
today. All of the family and friends of those who have passed would agree
that they did not spend enough time with them, and wish they could have had
at least one more day. This is where I am today, spending the day with my
family and friends. “No Boos from the Steelers fans”, but I am at the
Browns game tailgating as I have done for my whole life, starting as a kid
with my late Father and Uncle.
While I understand the commitment I and the
rest of the board made to the membership, I have and always will manage the
park with these principles in place – You take care of Family, your job,
and then the park. I hope you understand, now on to park business.
This past summer was a summer of re birth for
the park. We have seen the park once again become a destination location.
This led to a record number of visitors and guests. The activities have
blossomed under the guidance of Maryann and the help she has been receiving
has been noticed. Two of the comfort stations have been completely
remodeled and updated with a third well under the final planning and
approval process as required by our constitution. The comfort stations have
been cleaned all season and this has lifted a huge burden of off the board
as this has been an issue ever since I came into the park.
The pool has been a challenge the past year do
to the amount of swimmers, especially on Holidays, while we have had a few
members put out feelers, as of yet no one has stepped forward to be on Dan
carpenters “pool committee”. Thank you Dan for the great Job you have been
doing and I will continue to ask for help.
The grounds have been well taken care of under
the direction of Joe Lewis, Frank Unkaford, and his crew of volunteers. How
about a hand for these members….
The lake has been a real challenge for Rex King
and his crew as this has been one of the hardest summers for lakes all over
the state, having someone with the talent and drive of Rex King has made
the difference for our lake, how about a hand for Rex and his crew of
The buildings needed and received a fresh coat
of paint under the direction of Bob Mills Jr (goober) and his crew of
volunteers, another round of applause please!......
I cannot say enough about how much help several
of the members who are not board members have been to me during the
transition from VP to President, I would like to mention in no particular
order, My wife Maryann, Brenda Lallathin, Dee Wurz, Tom Wolfe, Brad Dunn,
and Pat Detrick.
The board in front of you has been outstanding
this past year. The challenges that I put them to was simple, you
“gotta wanta” . What I mean by this is that in order to help run this park,
it takes time, courage, patience, commitment by not only you, but in most
cases by your family and friends. This board was challenged by me to get
into the habit of communicating with each other constantly through
technology – email and facebook. They have - and we are a better
place because of it. We are always aware of what is happening at the park.
I also would like to acknowledge the
membership. We are all in this together. At most campgrounds, someone takes
care of the grounds, the cleaning of common grounds, the activities, the
billing and collection, the pool, the playgrounds, etc. Here at LLP, you
are the “someone” We have had great support thorough out the year in making
this park better - a Destination location.
And finally, the one person who has been there
every time for me is VP Jim Cox. The amount of help he has provided me
cannot be measured. The amount of time he puts into this park has made it
move forward and he continually saves us money! I believe that next
year, if Jim decides to step down, the new VP will have their work cut out
to maintain what he has brought to the park, how about a round of applause
for VP Jim Cox……………………
As you have heard, my message this meeting has
been all about the positives of this park, LLP has a lot of great people
volunteering their time and expertise in making this a great campground.
Not unlike all families, business’s, or communities, there are times were
this positive atmosphere is challenged, that is to be expected, but you
cannot let this dictate or have it alter the path to success. We have and
will continue to make the tough decisions based on what is best and fair
for the membership as a whole.
I have a vision for the park and am currently
working on a business plan for the park. One of the first lessons in
business training is to have goals and to plan how to achieve them, I will
be working on this along with the board of directors and hope to have it
complete for the April meeting.
In closing, I want to thank everyone in
attendance for caring about the park and making the effort to be here, soon
you will be asked to vote for members who have made the decision to be a
part of the parks board. Whomever you choose I have confidence that they
will give their best, gotta wanta, so good luck to everyone. Thank you for
listening. Kent Tompkins -President
