Some of the most exciting "events" experienced at Lake in the Clouds are provided by Mother Nature. We are quite fortunate to see a variety of animals that roam our community.
LAKE IN THE CLOUDS
PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION
September 9, 2023
Please be advised that the Directed Proxy Ballot contains an error that has been corrected.
The original, mailed on September 5, 2023, stated that the Annual Membership Meeting of the LAKE IN THE CLOUDS PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION was to be held on Saturday, October 1, 2022. The date should be Saturday, October 7, 2023.
Under the Member’s Ballot and Directed Proxy, the statement reads: “I hereby designate the Secretary of the LAKE IN THE CLOUDS PROPERTY OWNERS ASSOCIATION…”
Joyce Torrey, the Secretary, is up for reelection. According to the By-laws (Article III, Section 3, line k): ” In an election, a Director or Member up for election may not be designated as a proxy representative.”
In order to be in compliance with our By-laws, the Board of Directors has elected Carol Shumway as Deputy Secretary. This position is in effect for the 2023 election of Board of Directors.
The Secretary will NOT have any contact or influence on the ballots.
As noted, ballots are to be mailed to the office at 112 Lake in the Clouds Road where they will not be opened until they are counted by the Judge of Elections during the General Membership Meeting October 7, 2023.
You may still use the original ballot just be aware that instead of the Secretary being the proxy, it will be the Deputy Secretary.

Angel Wing is a condition that affects mostly waterfowl, caused by a nutritional deficiency in vitamins and minerals combined with a high level of carbohydrates and sugars. While a number of factors are involved, human-fed bread is one of the probable causes. It causes the carpal joint (or wrist) on the wing to grow awkwardly, leaving the wing unable to sit flush at the bird’s side. This affects their ability to fly and the growth of their primary flight feathers — making them look more like sticks than feathers.
Damage in fully mature birds is irreversible and likely fatal, due to the inability to fly to food sources and rejection from their flocks. If the bird is young and the diet changes dramatically, however, the damage could be reversed.
Although there are more nutritional foods that humans can provide (like non-moldy cracked corn, wheat, barley or standard birdseed), geese and ducks are grazers and have no trouble finding food on their own. In fact, feeding them can create an unnatural and unhealthy dependence on us as their food providers, and can lead to other problems, like overcrowding and water pollution.
Help keep our waterfowl happy and healthy by spreading the word about the dangers of feeding them bread and crack
Adopt Your Road - LITC is usually very free from road trash, pristine even. But, occasionally there is a cup, a bottle, a paper of some sort along the road or in the grasses. When you're out for a walk, consider carrying a bag and gloves and picking up that trash. If we all do that, we will ensure that LITC remains one of the cleanest in the Poconos. Thanks for your help.
Reminder - Please clean up after your pet on roads, in community areas, and on private property. Neighbors do not appreciate having to do so.
FALL/SPRING CULVERT CLEANOUT - All property owners are responsible for keeping drainage ditches and culverts on or bordering your property cleaned out and free of leaves and debris. When water cannot run freely it backs up and erodes our roads increasing our community maintenance costs. PLEASE! Once in the Fall after the leaves are down and once in the Spring before the heavy rains - take the time to clean out all your drainage areas.
The Ladies of the Lake invite you to join us for breakfast the last Wednesday of the month.

To be in compliance with a mandate by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) Lake in the Clouds had do a robotic survey this fall of our sluice gate. The video showed that additional information was needed. To get this, it was suggested the lake could be lowered. The BOD opted to hire Underwater Consultants to bring in divers to do the research.
The team came on Sunday, January 26. There were five divers, one that actually went into the water while the others monitored the equipment. The diver checked the perimeter of the tower as well as the interior. They were here for about six hours.
We will be getting a report with their recommendations and a video that will be sent to DEP.
