LAKE WILDERNESS PROJECT UPDATES:
- With so many residents remodeling the inside and outside of their homes, it only seemed fitting that the Board should take on the task of having the Lake Wilderness front entrance refurbished. The front entrance monument has been in place for more than 30 years I am told and has never had a “freshening up.” The Board hired Aron Norton, owner of Cutting Edge Brick and Stone Masonry, who just so happens to be a neighborhood resident. The entire monument was pressure washed, repaired, re-laid, and re-grouted. It really looks fabulous now and has improved the look of the neighborhood, so thank you Aron!
- The Board had the landscaping company come in and remove the dead tree located in the calming circle of SE 250 th . The Board has had communication with the
residents in that cul-de-sac as they have expressed an interest in maintaining the calming circle. The offer to maintain is very much appreciated. Thank you!
- The Board is also researching removing some shrubs in front of the Lake Wilderness sign on the right side as you are entering the neighborhood … more to come on that.

We have a new Board Member for 2021 – Please welcome Donna Bergeron!
Donna provided us with a short bio: I am a Washington native. My husband and I purchased our home in Lakek Wilderness in July of 2018 after having looked for a rambler for almost 5 years. We love the community and are thrilled to be there. We have 3 grown children all in the area and 5 grandchildren. I spent 40 years in the real estate industry but have been retired for quite some time. We currently spend a few months in Arizona but also enjoy some international travel. Golf and working in our yard are our summer hobbies.
Due to the recent inclement weather permanent generators have become a topic. It’s the Board’s understanding that permanent generators do need to be started every 30 days and allowed to run for a few minutes to circulate oil throughout the engine. With that said, the Board would like to hear from you. How do you feel about residents installing permanent generators in the neighborhood? Please provide James at Around the Clock (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your
We currently have one available seat on the LWHOA Board

Thank you, in advance, for considering either becoming an LWHOA Board Member or a Lake Wilderness HOA volunteer!
LWHOA BOARD MEETING UPDATE:
Board meetings are still being held virtually and this may become the new normal of the future. Because of this, we see an opportunity to improve communication for the HOA Board, Lake Wilderness Residents, and Around the Clock. We’d like to ask that you send your e-mail address to James at Around the Clock (email@example.com). E-mails will, of course, be kept confidential and will only be used by the HOA and Around the Clock to communicate to the Lake Wilderness Residents.
