President’s Message – June 2012

1 Jun

The 2012 IOPPOA Rajun Cajun was very successful this year. We had great attendance and many of the people that come have never missed one. I love to hear how enjoyable our neighborhood is and that they look forward to our event every year. I want to thank all the workers and the Crawfish Co of Central Fla for their commit- ment and expertise without them this event would not be a success. I especially would like to thank the volun- teers that help me out at the gate, they save me from the stampede of those so anxious to get to their favorite spot in the park.

The board has a committee that will look into doing repairs to the IOP Association amenities depending on quotes and necessity we may not do all of them at once but we feel that our fund raisers funds will be put to good use. The committee’s focus is getting the electric up to code and replace with commercial grade products. Providing a permanent cover for the well equipment. The pavilion roof is not leaking, but as far as anyone re- members it is the original roof. The retaining wall along the boat ramp replaced with new wood.

Come out to the Father’s Day Fishing tournament it is for all members. If you are interested in getting up early and fish either from the dock or from your boat. Or you can sleep in and come to the weigh in to cheer as the fish are weighed for each participant. We then have Dana’s famous fish tacos and other great food.

Since we don’t get RSVP for a head count we never know how many members will come to each event, so we ask everyone to bring a side dish. This way we have a variety of food and snacks for all that come.

Look for more interesting IOP history in the newsletters to come and keep emailing me regarding what events and information you are interested in seeing in your newsletter.

See you in the IOP,

Terry Aikens
