Cottage Owners All
new cottage owners are required to attend a new owners orientation
meeting before their purchase is finalized by the District. These
are held before each Cottage Owners Meeting during the summer at the

individuals must be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday until each
part of the job is completed. Ideally, we'd like good typing

offered for the work. If you'd be interested in being a part of
this Convention, please contact Cheryl Bothfeld at

Your Local Washroom - Camp provides a daily clean-up and
supply refresh. Please note that this is daily. Between camp
cleanings, it is the neighborhood cottage owners who are responsible
for keeping the washrooms clean and usable! Treat it like your
washroom at home. Donât leave paper on the floor, or the sink a
mess. If you donât like cob-webs, plan a neighborhood clean-up day
soon. Make it as nice as you want to make it!!!
are working very hard to have the public buildings and grounds ready
for the start of season but we must look to the cottage owners to
take care of their cottage and the grounds surrounding it. Please
clean up, fix up and paint up. Grass must be cut. If a cottage owner
doesnât cut their grass, Camp will do it and charge the owner. The
fee escalates if we have to mow additional times. Please do NOT burn
leaves around your cottage. Place all landscape waste in the
concrete bunkers and Camp will store it until the next burning season
or conduct controlled burns as necessary. Camp is permitted to burn
in emergency situations.
BRICKS! BRICKS! The
first order of approximately 350 Engraved Bricks has been
placed and will be arriving later this month. But it's not too
late to get in on the Brick Campaign. I will be placing another order
later this month. (It's hopeful, but not guaranteed that these
bricks will arrive in time for Founder's Day) So pick up an
order form down in the Raths, Or go online to
download a form. Completed forms should be given to or sent to
Pam Lau, 740 Harper Ave., Cary, IL 60013. Orders may also be
sent via email (with a check to follow) to email@example.com.
Bricks make great gifts as well.
our Dust! The
preparation for the installation of the memorial bricks will begin
soon. The location is between the Ladies Clubhouse and the
Barenhohle, a short walk from the Alfred Wild memorial. The bricks
many of you have so kindly purchased will form the center, with
plenty of room for future expansion as new bricks are added. The
entrance will be a scale replica of the 1930-1940s era archway.
Great things to come!

For your convenience, a
recycling dumpster has been placed in the big parking lot. It is
located to the right of the regular garbage dumpster. The recycling
dumpster is a single stream dumpster, that means it will accept all
recyclable materials, Including paper, plastic, aluminum and steel
and glass bottles, (
PLEASE NO WINDOW PANE GLASS )
NO WET NEWSPAPERS, FOAM, PIZZA BOXES, YARD WASTE, or WINDOW PANE
would appreciate if you separate your aluminum cans (beer cans and
soda cans) and place them in the blue 55 gallon barrels labeled CANS
ONLY they are next to the recycling dumpster. For everyoneâs
convenience these blue barrels marked CANS ONLY are also
placed next to each of the regular garbage dumpster that are located
throughout camp. The content in these blue barrels will be collected
and brought in by the youth committee; the money from these
recyclables will be used to enhance the youth program. The recycling
program has been a long time coming. The more everyone participates
the more successful it is.
it is our camp. Treasure it donât trash it!
