|Andrea Carbonneau (formerly of W. Shore Rd.) contacted us about her friend, Jay Kennedy, who is doing a photo project that will hopefully result in a "coffee table book" featuring black and white photos. Jay will be in the Joe's Pond area on July 4th and 5th, and will likely knock on your door if you live here at the pond. Andrea and Jay asked us to let people know he will be in the area this weekend. He is an independent professional and is not connected to Joe's Pond Association in any way. The Joe's Pond website and this blog are merely conduits for the information so you will not be surprised by his visit and perhaps even have gathered more family to participate, knowing he will be stopping by.

|We have one loon chick this morning at the north end of the big pond. Boaters, please be extra watchful and give the loons plenty of space. Slow down when you are in the area of the islands, as that is where they are most likely to be while the chick is very young. Thank you. Photo by Gretchen Farnsworth.|

|Hello Joe's Pond Community, |
I was wondering if there was any guidance about making a day visit to the area for a picnic near the water. We're coming from Montpelier and I'm conscious there might be additional guidelines or restrictions at the moment. Any advice would be very helpful. Thanks for you time and hope everyone is staying safe and well.

|JPA Board Meeting|
The Board of Directors held a meeting on June 20th
and made the following decisions:
Due to current restrictions related to Covid 19 we have elected to cancel all remaining social events
related to JPA for the remainder of the summer.
We HOPE to POSSIBLY have a fall meeting sometime in late August or over Labor Day depending
on the State recommendations at that time. If so we would encourage social distancing and the use of
We also would like to consider a members only social gathering at the pavilion in late August but
again dependent on current recommendations.
The sailboat races and fireworks will continue as planned.
Only one pavilion rental is currently scheduled in mid August and that may require cancellation.
No additional rentals are being considered at this time.
The tennis/pickleball courts remain open for use.
The Board will be meeting again on July 25 to consider any changes in our position and to further
evaluate the situation for possible August events.
Please feel free to contact me or any other board member if you have any questions or suggestions.

|I just wanted to remind people that Meadow Lane ( off from West Shore Rd) is a private road and really a dead end. My driveway is not a continuation of Meadow Lane but private property and my backyard. It's really all the residents' back yard since everyone owns a portion of the road but we all have right of way. Lately there have been people and some cars passing through that don't live here or visiting. I would appreciate it if people, especially with dogs, avoid walking through and especially going up my driveway. I will be having a young dog in my yard, mostly on a run, and I'd like to avoid any issues. Thanks for your consideration.

|The JPA Board of Directors met today and as expected because of the Covid 19 pandemic and the|
State of Vermont recommendations, we decided to cancel the spring meeting scheduled for May 23rd
Additionally the Pitch Tournament on June 20 was also canceled. The Sunfish sailing workshop, sailboat
races and July 4th
fireworks will proceed as scheduled. The tennis courts will be available for use with
social distancing recommended when feasible.
Although it is problematic if the other social events and meetings can be held as scheduled, the Board
elected to defer any further cancellations at this time. As we are all aware this is an extremely fluid
situation, and we anticipate final decisions will be made approximately two weeks before any events.
Please feel free to contact me or any other board member if you have any questions or comments.

|Will the Spring Meeting still be held on the 23rd? Governor Scott has said no meetings larger than 10 people and social distancing must still be observed which might make the JPA Schedule out of bounds...

|Seems like a new location for the block is in order.It was obvious to many of us why the TV coverage was not at the block location as it would have been obvious that the ice was a long way from being gone.It would be so easy to do it right and locate the block in a different part of the lake like in the cove near the rec.area.The rail trail goes by there and a lot of people would see it when using the trail.If we can make it better,we should at least give it a shot!

|Subject: Ice Out||Date: 04/17/2020||Author: Pamela||Last Reply Date:||Last Reply By: Bill|
|Just wondering if we could look at a different location or readjust when the block is placed. |
It seems rather troublesome to me that the past 2 ice outs happen when the ice isn’t remotely out. It’s still quite white and fairly solid.
I have had a number of local people ask why the ice went out but it didn’t.
Not sure exactly what the differences where but when it was placed at Fitts’ it seemed more ice was gone. Granted there were issues with the location for sure there, but I think we can do a better job. Maybe talk to the people who have done it previously?? Maybe have it as a topic at the Annual Meeting?
Seems like now we are voting on when the clock will stop but not when the ice is out.
Just a suggestion.

|Local couple in between houses would like camp on lake for the summer. We can be gone a portion of stay to give owners camp time. Willing to handle property management issues that might arise, as well as do minor repairs or grounds keeping. We will leave your camp better than we found it. |
Old world charm and location matters most to us. TVs and modern appliances not so much.

|Subject: Cyanobacteria bloom||Date: 10/02/2019||Author: Dorothea Penar||Last Reply Date:||Last Reply By:|
|We had another small bloom of cyanobacteria in the Narrows cove area. It was of a limited size, but lasted most of the day last Friday. Given that the water is significantly colder and many of the camps are not occupied, I think the heavy rains we had last Wednesday and Thursday maybe a significant factor in causing the bloom.|
Please be aware that storm water runoff brings a lot of nutrients to the pond on all slopes, so avoid fertilizing lawns, avoid clearing the natural vegetation along the shore, and keep the upland trees as much as possible.

|Statement issued today by President Hebert:|
"I want to thank everyone for their concerns and comments in the last 10 days regarding boater safety issues on the pond. Hopefully through this open dialog we will all become more conscious of the appropriate rules, regulations, and more respectful of our neighbors and the environment.
Unfortunately we continue to hear of ongoing issues. Most recently there have been reports of jet skis operating close to shore in the boat access area. If you have a concern the Vermont State Police is the agency that deals with boating safety complaints. The local number is 748-3111. I spoke with them today and was informed that obtaining information such as boat type, color or especially a registration number would greatly facilitate their investigation. Lets all continue to be a bit more considerate and try to minimize this situation.
