Message from the BOD for October 2018
Fall has come to Spring Valley Lake once again. The weather is cooling, the leaves will start to change and we will all soon be making our plans for the Holiday Season to come. As we move into October, please plan for a safe and happy Halloween. It is a very busy holiday for our community and we will have large amounts of people on the streets celebrating the holiday with us. Please be mindful and take a little extra time getting to where you need to be that evening. Make sure, if you are out and about, you make yourself, your children and your group visible to the vehicles on the road. Think safety first, be mindful of your surroundings and all of us can enjoy with our family and friends.
I would like to congratulate Al Logan on his first year as our General Manager! Through many trials and tribulations, I cannot think of a better addition to our SVLA staff. Al has proven over the last year that no issue has been too big, too small or too controversial to handle. He has approached every decision and every recommendation to the Board with a level head and a pragmatic approach. This year’s budget process was a true test of Al’s abilities as a leader; and I can say Spring Valley Lake is in good hands for many years to come. Thank you for your service to our community Mr. Logan.
I also want to remind everyone of the October 1st start date for enforcement of the new guest pass rule. Members and Associate Members must accompany their guests while on Association property Friday, Saturday, Sunday, holidays and while at Association sponsored events. Please remember: As a Member or Associate Member you must have your SVLA passes with you at all times while on Association property. This will help Public Safety enforce the rules that we, as a community, have asked them to.
Lastly, I would like to thank everyone in our community that volunteers their time to serve. If you belong to a committee, or are a member of an SVLA Club, you serve a vital role in the success of our community and our association. You spend your time ensuring every member of our community has a place where they can live, play and have their voices heard on important issues. I salute each and every one of you. Thank you for your service.
John D. Smith
