Flood Update 6/2/2014

Here's an updated rundown of our flood losses from the May 12 storms. First the bad news. What we've lost:

  • Our tractor.  The repair estimate came in at about $1500, which is just not economical for an 11 year old tractor that's been run pretty hard. The board has authorized $2500 for a replacement. A couple of residents have helped out with the mowing, but our request for additional help from members with a tractors went unanswered. This is a big hit to our emergency fund, but is necessary.
  • The pump protector circuit on our well. We've already replaced this at a cost of $170.
  • Our new refrigerator. Unless we can find someone in the neighborhood to take a look at it, we'll likely end up scrapping it.

But there's some good news too:

  • The roto-tiller was able to be salvaged at a cost of only $100.
  • One of the recently donated refrigerators survived, so we have cold storage in the shed.
  • The board, along with a handful of residents, was able to get the park ready for the 2014 season by Memorial Day. When you consider the pictures above from only a week earlier, this is a great accomplishment. To everyone who helped us out- Thank You!
  • We've received a number of substantial donations from members towards the flood recovery cost. It's reassuring to know that so many of you recognize the value that our park represents, and are willing to go above and beyond to support it. Thank you so much for your help!

Membership is our primary income, and now, more than ever, we need your membership to help us recover and continue. If you haven't yet purchased your 2014 membership, or have been on the fence about joining, please consider how much the park adds to the community and how much we need your help.  If you've paid your membership and would like to donate additional funds to the cleanup effort, we've added a Donations button in the menu at the top of the page that you can use.  Any funds donated will go directly to the cleanup effort or to our capital improvements fund.  Whether helping by purchasing a membership, or donating your time or money, we greatly appreciate your help.

Thank you for your continued support.

Palooza Baskets! Help Needed...

Wyoga Palooza! - Friday, July 25 5PM to 11PM

 

If you’re new to the neighborhood, Wyoga Palooza is our yearly festival to celebrate our park, our neighbors, our friends and our families with the party of the year.  And it’s open to anyone and everyone who shows up at the gate. 

The celebration runs from 5PM to 11PM rain or shine on Friday, July 25 at Wyoga Lake Park. Admission is just $5 per person, and kids 5 and under get in free!

What a great way to end the work week!  We’ll have lifeguards on duty until 8PM, so grab the family and come down for a swim.

The Bands
Four great local bands are donating their talents to the cause. On the roster so far are Kristy Lee Burke, The Dave Croft Band, GoodBoogie, and The Josh Huddleston Band.  All are great entertainers and looking forward to performing for us.

The Food
This year, Guy’s Pizza of Cuyahoga Falls will be catering the event.  We’ll be serving up pizza, sausage sandwiches, walking tacos, hot dogs, and our chili-cheese Wyoga Dogs!  Soft drinks, canned beers, craft beers on tap, and malt beverages (Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Smirnoff’s coolers, etc.) will be available for sale.

The Fun
We’ll hold a corn hole tournament along with other games and family activities starting at 5PM, and be sure to stop by our own “Jungle Bill” Whitlock’s reptile exhibit.

Later, we’ll be raffling off several really great  baskets (see inset on page 2).

And as the sun starts to go down we’ll top it off with a bonfire on the  beach.

It takes a great deal of time and hard work to organize an event of this size.  Spread the word and invite friends, relatives, and acquaintances to come on down and enjoy the fun. Since it’s a Friday night, why not grab your co-workers from work and drag them down with you.  If past years are any indicator, everyone will have a good time.

We are looking for a face painter and other volunteers to help out with the event, and could use a couple of 10 x 10 canopies.  If you can help, please contact Ron Spuhler by phone (330) 256-0751 or email (ronspuhler@gmail.com).

Wyoga Palooza has been instrumental in bridging our funding gap due to reduced membership.  With your help, we can bring 300 or more people down to the park for our festival.

So come party into the night with your neighbors, friends, family, and guests. It’s right in your own neighborhood, it’s fun, and it’s for a great cause!

Membership not required!

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please note that due to the event, Wyoga Lake Park will closed to residents at 12 noon on Friday, July 25 for event setup.  No outside food or beverages will be permitted.
