PIHA Annual Meeting Update – 6/17/24

Our annual meeting is less than one week away! Election ballots can be submitted at the  Annual Meeting on June 22, 2024. If you have not received your ballot(s), contact the clubhouse asap.

Disinformation has been posted on social media insinuating that your ballot is not secure or has opportunity for possible changes. The board of directors has reviewed the process and we are confident with the established protocol.

Mike Thurber, Immediate Past President, and Christina Saurini will oversee the ballot counting again this year. We have 6 member volunteers to help count the ballots.

If you are a candidate on the ballot, you are allowed to designate one member to observe the ballot counting. Those individuals must report to Mike Thurber not later than 10:50am on Saturday, June 22. An observer will not be allowed into the area after 11am.

The annual meeting will be called to order at 11am.

If the counting of the ballots is not finalized by the completion of the annual meeting, a recess will be called until the counting is finalized.

Once the ballot counting is complete, the annual meeting will be reconvened and the results of the election will be announced.

I would like to thank Mike, Christina and the ballot counters for volunteering their time on Saturday to ensure our annual board elections are properly managed.

Hope to see everyone Saturday!

Colleen Campo
President, PIHA Board of Directors

A Note from PIHA’s BOD President – May 2024

Hello neighbors:

Spring has finally arrived and the Association has a lot going on!

The campground is open – Phil and Jenise are on site and taking reservations. A reminder that this is their last year managing the campground so if you know anyone that might be interested in this seasonal job, please refer them to Jacob.

Pool Closure:  As you are aware, there is a continuing issue regarding the roof over the pool area. For safety reasons, the BOD voted to close the pool pending an inspection of the trusses. This inspection should take place within the next 10 days or so. Once we receive the results of the inspection, a decision will be made on how to move forward. We provide information to all members as quickly as possible. Watch our website, Facebook page and the bulletin board for updates.

Hailstorm Update:  The logistics of moving the HVAC units from the roof of the clubhouse and relocating them inside the building is being discussed. They also need the above-mentioned inspection to move forward with reroofing the pool area. This is a huge project. Your patience and understanding are appreciated.

Grand Lake Beach:  The launch dock is in and the Board approved the purchase of two paddleboats and lifts for the GLB area. The kayak launch is on its way!

Committee Updates:

Clubhouse, Beach, and Pool:  The shuffleboard courts will be inspected this week. The pool committee continues to research options. Dave Larkin plans to have a pool company representative present at our June board meeting (1 of 3 he is speaking with). The purpose of this presentation is to educate the board on pool options available. Other resources will be giving presentations as the project moves forward. Please join us as we learn about the different types of pools.

Social Activities Committee:  We have a couple of members willing to continue STEAM throughout the summer. Thank you so much – This activity has been a smashing success for the kiddos! Next blood drive is June 4. Watch our website/Facebook for updates on activities.

Our Annual Membership Meeting/Election:  Saturday, June 22 at 11am at the clubhouse. The election ballot will be mailed in the next week or so. The candidate names and biographies will be on the election ballot. Additionally, information from the PIHA Rule Book will be enclosed explaining the commitment and ethics that board members are required to adhere to. Please review this information when deciding your vote. Your ballot(s) can be mailed back, dropped off at the clubhouse or turned in at the beginning of the Annual Meeting. Hope to see you there!

Please feel free to contact any member of the board with your concerns, suggestions, complaints. Our email and other contact information is on the PIHA website. You do not have to attend our meetings to be heard. We follow up on all communications.

It looks like it is finally time to get the boat in the water, plant that garden and sit on the deck in the evening.

Have a great spring!

Colleen Campo
President, PIHA Board of Directors

A Note from PIHA’s Executive Director – May 2024

Hello PIHA members,

Memorial Day is just about here, I look forward to seeing everyone that comes out to visit, hopefully the weather is nice, and everyone has a chance to visit the beautiful PIHA common facilities.

Monthly Updates:

An engineering proposal has been accepted by the PIHA Board of Directors. The engineering firm that submitted the proposal has recommended the closure of the pool and spa building to allow for a thorough inspection of the building that houses the pool and spa. The PIHA Board of Directors has voted unanimously at the May 9th board meeting to close the pool and spa facilities to allow the engineering firm to inspect the structural integrity of the pool and spa building. This decision was not made lightly and was voted on by roll call with the safety of the membership the deciding factor in this decision. Updates will be given once the inspection is completed. Please check our web and Facebook pages for updates. I greatly appreciate your patience and understanding as we move forward with the inspection of the pool and spa building.

The PIHA annual meeting will be held Saturday June 22nd at 11am at the clubhouse activities hall, the ballots for the annual election will be in the mail by May 22nd. See below for info regarding the 2024 ballots.

(Vote for not more than three) (Candidates are listed alphabetically)

PLEASE NOTE: To be eligible to vote, you must be a member in good standing as of June 22nd, 2024. After reviewing the list of candidates, mark your ballot or ballots and insert in the enclosed envelope marked “BALLOT.” Place the proper postage on the self-addressed envelope and mail. The elections committee must receive absentee ballots by June 20, 2024. You may vote in person at the annual meeting.

If you have any questions regarding the election process, please contact the clubhouse (989)-595-2411 or email MemberServices@presqueisleharbor.org.

The campground is open, the new cabin is also complete and available for reservations. Memorial weekend is a perfect time to come up and relax and enjoy camping at Campers Village. For information regarding the campground contact Phil at the Camper’s Village (989)-595-2174 or email Campground@presqueisleharbor.org. Phil and Jenise have done a wonderful job managing the campground, their efforts are greatly appreciated by me. If you have any questions regarding the campground they are more than willing to help.

Negotiations are ongoing regarding the relocation of the clubhouse rooftop HVAC units. The current plan is to move the damaged HVAC units off the roof and install new units indoors. The indoor units will be smaller and more efficient, which will benefit PIHA in the near and long term. MVP Home Improvements and Derek Stabley PIHA adjuster have been great to work with and are doing everything possible to get the hail repairs completed. The gutters at the North Bay Beach House and Grand Lake Beach House have recently been installed. Don Bourdeau with the Bourdeau agency has been extremely helpful as well with the hail repair process. Monthly meetings with insurance agents and contractors have been planned to ensure that the hail repair process moves forward as efficiently as possible. The Presque Isle Harbor Association appreciates your continued patience and understanding during this process!

The Grand Lake Beach House will be open for memorial weekend. The Launch dock was installed, and the remaining docks will be installed Friday May 17th. Monday May 20th the new kayak launch is scheduled to be delivered and installed. The docks at the GLBH will be moved around a little from previous years with non-motorized docks near the swimming area to the left and motorized docks to the right of the launch dock. Seasonal dock rentals have been discontinued but there will be open dock spaces for transient booters to dock and visit the beach house. Two new paddle boats and hoists have been approved for purchase by the PIHA board of directors. Hopefully everyone has an opportunity to utilize and enjoy the recent GLBH improvements.

Please contact MemberServices@presqueisleharbor.org or call the PIHA clubhouse at 989-595-2411 if you have questions. You can meet with me directly if an in-person meeting is required. Please call or email ahead of time.

Spring is Here! Once again, I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable spring and look forward to seeing/visiting with members at the PIHA common facilities. Stay safe and enjoy all that PIHA has to offer.

Sincerely,

Jacob J. Kroll
Executive Director, Presque Isle Harbor Association
