SUMMER 2014 NEWSLETTER


Summer is passing quickly. August is here and our Annual General Membership

Meeting is scheduled for the Sunday of Labor Day weekend. The meeting will be
held at the park on Sunday, August 31, 2014 at 2:00 pm. We would like to encourage

all members to attend and participate in voting for new board members.


Most unfortunately, our President, Shaun O'Brien resigned from his position on

August 5, 2014. Our current Vice President, Don Stevens has stepped into that position. The position of Secretary has been vacant for over two years. The term of all of the remaining Board members will end on August 31, 2014. There has only been one official nomination for the position of Vice President. We desperately need volunteers to fill the Board positions in order to continue the business and autonomy of Pocono Forest. If a majority of the Board positions are vacated on 8/31 with no one to fill them, it will be necessary to seek very expensive legal council in order to ascertain the future of Pocono Forest. Foreseeably, an independent management company could be mandated upon us – which would most certainly mean an appreciable increase in our dues.


Areas of our roads are scheduled to be oiled (for dust suppression and to help maintain the work done in prior years). The floor surface of the pavilion is undergoing resurfacing in order to make it safer. The open monthly Board meetings have been held on the first Saturday of each month at 7pm this summer at the request of several members (previously held on the first Friday evening). This was changed in hopes to encourage and increase membership attendance at the meetings, however, there has been no increase in attendance.


The sincere hard work done by our Board is most admirable and should be greatly

appreciated by all of the Pocono Forest membership. Many hours doing paperwork and maintaining records are volunteered, especially by the Financial Secretary and Treasurer. There are also a few members who regularly volunteer hard work and sweat to help maintain our common areas. Please become involved in maintaining our independence. Simply attending a few meetings per year can be helpful – all input is appreciated and considered. Pocono Forest, the Pocono's BEST KEPT SECRET is in need of your participation!
