W. Glover Fireworks Seeks Donations
Local residents and LPA member Nancy Hofer continue to try to raise enough funds for the 4th of July fireworks on Lone Tree Hill. If you would like to donate there is a jar on the counter at Parker Pie for cash or checks. All checks should be made payable to Phil Brown, the fireworks master. You can also mail a check c/o Nancy Hofer, PO Box 835, Wilmington, VT 05363 and she will get it to Phil. Nancy said “every donation will make a difference for a great fireworks display”. Also note that Parker Pie is going to hold another fundraiser on June 28 featuring the music of Cumbiagra! Here’s a link to their site: Parker Pie events

Fishing is Fun on Lake Parker by Lloyd Klinger
It is time to get out the fishing tackle and get it ready for spring fishing. I have already bought some new lures and line. Lake Parker has a wide variety of fish available and if you choose your lures carefully (guess right), at the end of the day you can note that you have hooked several species. They may not all be keepers, but in the long run it is the experience and fun that counts….continued

Recent Cottage Break-Ins
I have just become aware that there have been 4 break-ins on the West Shore that took place over the last few months. Some personal property was stolen, there was damage to enter the properties as well as copper pipe cut out. One of the properties was checked daily by Bob Richards and he identified the loss immediately and reported it. In addition there have been several reports of suspicious vehicles and in one case a pickup truck backed into a driveway around midnight and turned off the engine and lights. They left quickly when the owner turned on the outside lights. This has occurred in the past and will probably continue but we can all help each other avoid this by being more vigilant. BE AN OBSERVANT NEIGHBOR. Report suspicious activity to the police and your neighbors. Do not attempt to intervene on your own. Also tell the LPA board so we can post a warning on the website and track the occurrence.- Joe Little UPDATED 5-19-2013: We have added a ‘Safety & Security’ discussion forum on the Forum Tab so you can share your thoughts with others.

Green Up Day a SUCCESS!
Thanks to everyone who participated in Green Up Day. It was a resounding success. We had 14 LPA members scouring the roads around Lake Parker. After just a couple hours we netted 19 bags of trash, 9 tires, 5 propane bottles, assorted hardware and a load of car parts. We really made a difference!! Thanks to Andrea Neil, Richard Pugliese & Stanley Corklin, Ken & MaryJo Kasz, Heidi Cooperstein, Art & Sue Greenbaum, Rich & Katy Little, Vicki Young, Norine Phillips & helpers and Joe & Anne Little.

Welcome to our New Website
If you’ve visited the Lake Parker site before today you might notice that we’ve given it a bit of a facelift.
In addition to general sprucing-up and bringing over the content from the old site we’ve added some new features like a Sell-Rent-Buy tab to find or sell items. We added a new Forum tab where members can have online discussions, ask questions and share.
Our official map of the lake and a map of the walking path can now be found at the Membership tab. There are Resource links based on your recommendations and more.
We are still working out the kinks but take a look around to see what’s new, stay tuned for future improvements and let us know what you think on the Forum or by email.
This has been an exciting endeavor and we hope you will like our look but while our site has many new features the strength of our Association is in the members, our community. Our hope is that this will be one more tool to interact and know your neighbors on our beautiful lake.
