July 2018 - President's Message:
Greetings ILCC members and residents of Indian Lake!
Memorial Day is behind us! It was an interesting weekend with a Fun Friday that rivaled Fun Weekend, a wedding (congratulations to the Bride and Groom) and not exactly a great Sunday. Squarely in front of us, we have July 4th and right on its heels … Fun Weekend! It’s going to be a busy week in Indian Lake. Let’s ensure it is safe for all. As a reminder, the ILCC Patrol will be on land and sea ensuring only properly tagged members and boats are using lake property. First, please tag your boats and have your beach tags with you when on property. This makes it easy for the ILCC Patrol and our Lifeguards. Second, please show ILCC Patrol and our Lifeguards when they engage with you. They are doing their job to protect your membership.
If you haven’t heard by now King & Queen Weekend has been moved up for the second year in a row to July 28th and 29th. Don’t forget to vote on Fun Weekend for a King & Queen as well as Mr. & Mrs. Indian Lake. As a reminder, Mr. & Mrs. Indian Lake is a tribute to active members who volunteer their time to the Lake, selflessly giving to the lake throughout the year and display a history of making a difference. As each of you know this Club runs on volunteerism and has done so on the backs of many members, however Mr. & Mrs. Indian Lake often stand out just a little more. So make it a point to vote this year!
I want to thank all our members and those new to the lake who attended the Spring Cocktail party last month. It was great to see everyone! Laura Hoffman ran another amazing sell out event. Thank you Laura! I also want to thank those of you who have made the investment to join the Lake! Without your commitment, none of these events could take place. To the growing number of you who have chosen not to join as members, however have made your Fair Share Upkeep investment, thank you! You have my appreciation and respect for doing your part to support the financial health of the Indian Lake community that benefits you with higher values for your properties than the values of similar none lake community properties in Denville. By the way, if you’re still on the fence about joining as a member or making your Fair Share Upkeep investment, please give me or our Membership Trustee, Dan Sforza, a call and we’d be happy to talk with you in more detail about the benefits of membership in the ILCC and the advantage a healthy Club extends to your property value.
Last, we lost a long-time member in May. Eileen Van Duyne started summering in Indian Lake in the 60’s, eventually moving permanently in 1990. Eileen’s husband, Jim, was on the Board for many years and still helps ILCC a great deal today. Please keep the Van Duyne family in your thoughts and prayers.
Best wishes to everyone for a great summer here in beautiful Indian Lake!
