|Because we have no meetings this year, JP board members and ice out committee members (and selected others!) will be distributing ice out tickets door to door to JPA members before the end of the summer. We’re hoping each member can be responsible for buying or selling 10. Meanwhile, anyone who wants some can call any of us.

|There has been a lot of trash of no intrinsic value (broken fans, waste baskets, booze bottles, broken light bulbs) being set out by the entrance to the boat access just off US Route 2. This junk needs to go to the transfer station. Let's all keep our drive ways and access roads clean! DOn't be a lazy litter bug!!

|Subject: House to rent or caretake||Date: 07/20/2020||Author: Jenn||Last Reply Date:||Last Reply By:|
My name is Jenn and my family and I moved back to VT last month after living in WA state for 4 years. We are so happy to be back in Vermont, the state we love so much! We are currently renting a summer house in Danville and would like to stay in Danville for the upcoming school year.
We are a family of 4, both my husband and I are working professionals and we have 2 kiddos, ages 8 and 10, PLUS a cute dog. Ideally, we would like to be in a new rental starting at the end of August or early September- just so that we are ready to rock and roll back to school in the fall. We are planning on our kids to attend the Danville School.
We are also available to and are willing to house sit as another option. Do you take off for the winter and you would prefer to not leave your house empty and unattended to during the winter months? We are up for house sitting.
Prior to moving out west we owned a home (for many years) in Essex, VT. Both my husband and I have a "green thumb" and are kind, hard -working, respectful folks and we love to have fun outdoors and with our kids and dog.
If you or someone you know in this area is looking to rent their home, please let me know. I would be happy to talk to you more. You can email me at: email@example.com

|I was wondering if anyone gets their tv with an antenna and what kind of reception that you get, especially people on the West Shore. The impression that I have had over the years is that some people get decent reception with an antenna on the East shore but less so on the West Shore because we are blocked out by the mountain behind us... but looking to confirm or refute that impression. Thanks.

|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.

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.

|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.
