Meetings are open to TCM shareholders only.
PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN:  
As many of you may have heard, a short but violent storm recently went through our Park.
Once again we were truly fortunate to sustain very little damage. A roofing panel came off one
unit and a couple of others also had minor roof damage. Owners of any of the affected units
have been notified. Other minor damage was caused by loose garbage cans and articles
rolling around. Many thanks to all of our summer residents who assisted in the cleanup. Our
thoughts go out to the residents of the Coach House Mobile Home Park, as I am led to believe
that it was nearly all destroyed.
On a brighter side, it is so nice to hear that the Bocce Ball court is being enjoyed by many of
you.
I must thank our two resident Board members - Bob Everly and Tom Hanket - for all of their
efforts in keeping our Park running smoothly.
It is hard to believe that the summer is half over. I hope everyone continues to enjoy the
remainder of the season.

TREASURER’S REPORT – NORM KURTZ:
•        Our cash position remains mostly unchanged as our year to date (6/30/18) income
and expenses remain favorable to the budget.
•        The only Park Betterment and/or Major Improvement recorded last month was for the
stripping and sealing of the clubhouse floors.
As a point of interest – Year to Date Park Maintenance Expenses amount to approximately
8% of our total expenses.

always, please let me know if you have any questions or would like more detail on the
