The Legend of Lorelei
Lovely Ladies, Beautiful Hats, and
Delicious Tea and Scones! That was
the scene at the Lake Lorelei Clubhouse
on June 12th. The Women’s Club from
Lake Waynoka joined us for a fun
afternoon of sipping hot tea, nibbling
on delicious finger foods and getting to know
one another. Following brunch, everyone
dressed in their favorite hats and sat back to
enjoy the season’s latest fashions.
With a flower-laden runway, the Lake Lorelei
models surprised their guests with a hilarious
fashion show. Each model presented a very
literal creation for the season. One guest was
heard to say, “ This fashion show featured
some of the most entertaining outfits she had
ever seen! How will we top this next year at
our lake?”
To be part of the fun- join us the 1st Thursday of the
month at 7PM at the Clubhouse for Women’s Club!
Our Next Meeting is Thursday, July 11th.

Early this past spring, Lake Lorelei was
the sight of the Cincinnati Youth Bass
tournament sponsored by The Bass Pro
Shop. Some of the best young anglers
in the State of Ohio enjoyed a day of
fishing on our lake. Harbor Lovin was
one of 20 boys to take part the day long
event. Youth Bass tournaments are held
throughout Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.
It was an honor to have this group on
our lake.

Yes, they did it again. The “Three Maskateers”— Chuck Farmer, Mike
Hopkins and Allen Williams—and their band of helpers “got’er done.” This
time it was a renovation of the men’s bathroom in the Clubhouse and the
support framing of the amber glass window on the lake side of the

It was so much fun that the Patterson James Band
has offered to do a Free Concert on
Saturday, July 17 and Saturday August 19.

To be sure, all who participated were winners simply because
they took part and helped to make the Second Lake Lorelei
Cardboard Boat Race a resounding, communal success.
Nineteen boats entered the competition which was overseen by
Pam Haskell, Kristin Colby & Cindi Wetzel.
Next year the Cardboard Boat Race will again take place
on the second Sunday in June. Now might be the time for
families to start designing their winning entrant. One only
has to look at the pictures from the event to know that all who
attended enjoyed the afternoon together and families built not
only a boat, but also fond memories of working and playing
together at Lake Lorelei.

The Sustainability of Lake Lorelei
Open Discussions About Decisions That Influence Lake Lorelei
Dear Board of Trustees:
With the Operating Budget so tight, how do you justify building additional boat docks?
Board Response:
We are not building additional boat docks but rather systematically replacing the older
unsafe docks. Cove “H” is a good example. With the help of volunteers, this year we built
two new docks, Dock 4 and Dock 5. Dock 6 has been partially removed and Dock 7 is
scheduled for demolition. Thus, in Cove “H” we have the same number of docks available
for 2013 as we had in 2012.
There are not enough lots for all of our members to live on the Lake so common areas
were set aside to allow everyone access to the Lake. The LLPOA Boat Docks add to this
Lake access by allowing off lake members to dock their boats in the common area.
The LLPOA Boat Docks are financially self sustaining. The cost to construct the standard
two sided LLPOA dock is approximately $1,300.00:
Substructure Materials
$ 400.00
Substructure Subcontractor
$ 400.00 ( Roy Miller )
Decking Materials
$ 500.00
Decking Installation
0.00 ( Volunteer labor )
$ 1,300.00
The current LLPOA Boat Dock rental is $200.00 per side per year which makes for a very
short Pay Back period of just over three years. After that, these docks generate revenue
for the LLPOA.
Once you rent a LLPOA Boat Dock, you have the right to again rent that same dock in
future years at the then current rental rate. When you are no longer a member of LLPOA,
or do not pay the annual fee, the dock becomes available to other members on a first
come first served basis.
There are still a few LLPOA Boat Docks available for this boating season. Stop by the
Office to reserve one while they last.

Dear Board of Trustees:
At a recent Town Meeting a lady wanted to change the “rules”. How does one go about
changing the “rules”?
Board Response:
Our Governing Documents fall into three groups as to how they can be changed:
Code of Regulations/By-Laws
LLPOA RULES: Most easily changed are the LLPOA Rules. The LLPOA Rules are formulated
by the Board of Trustees and are changed from time to time “by the affirmative vote of the
majority vote of a quorum of Trustees serving on the date of the action.”
Thus, LLPOA Rule changes do not require a vote of the membership but do require a
majority vote of the Board. This vote is taken at a public Board Meeting after a discussion
of the proposed rule change.. The Board is currently studying one such member requested
LLPOA rule change.
CODE OF REGULATIONS/BY-LAWS: The Code of Regulations/By-Laws are changeable “with
the approval of the voting members exercising a majority of the voting power of those
members voting on the issue.” The Annual Roads Special Assessment and Reserve Fund
was added to the to the 2003 Amended Code of Regulations/By-Laws after an approval vote
by the simple majority of the voting Association Members in Good Standing. The Board is
currently working on a single document which would combine the 1998 Code and the 2003
Amended Code. The resulting 2013 Amended Code of Regulations/By-Laws will require an
approval vote by the simple majority of the voting Association Members in Good Standing.
COVENANTS/RESTRICTIONS: The Covenants/Restrictions are the most basic “rules”
running with the land. The restrictions, conditions, covenants, or agreements set forth in
paragraphs 7,8,9 and 10 continue in perpetuity. That is to say, they cannot be changed.
Other paragraphs are “changeable only by the affirmative vote of the majority of all
Property Owners voting.” Note that all property owners, not just Association Members in
Good Standing may vote.
All the Governing Documents are available at the LLPOA Office and on the LLPOA web site
www.LLPOAohio.com. If you believe that a Governing Document modification would
improve our community, you are encouraged to petition the Board of Trustees in writing.
You will receive a written response from the Board.

By: Linda Brown
I am happy to report that the Code Committee continues to make progress toward our
goal. We have developed a draft and submitted it to the Board of Trustees for their
review and comment. Some elements in the draft were questioned and sent back to
Committee for a final interpretation.
By the end of June, we plan to have the draft posted to the Lake Lorelei website
(www.lakeloreleiohio.com) and to have a few hard copies available at the Office. Public
meetings will be scheduled in July and August for membership comments and questions.
What should you expect from the drafted 2013 Code?
1. A merger of the 1998 Code and the 2003 Amended Bylaws without changing
the principles
2. A document in plain English without the legalese
3. A couple of improvements for members that will allow for enhanced processes
(i.e. electronic communication) while leaving all existing options in place
4. Elimination of obsolete references (i.e. Lake Lorelei Water Company)
What should you NOT expect from the drafted 2013 Code?
1. Changes to dues, fees, or assessments
2. Changes to voting rights and practices
3. Changes to membership rights and privileges
4. Changes to the LLPOA Rules … that is a completely different document
The 1998 Code and 2003 Amended Bylaws are complex and the 2013 Code draft is our
good-faith effort to bring the material together. Because of the complexity, at the open
meetings the Committee will be documenting membership suggestions and/or objections.
The sessions are about fact gathering and then taking that information back to
committee for final processing.
As a Committee we identified some elements of the Code that we believe are outdated or
should no longer be part of the LLPOA governance but we are just five individual
members of the community. I suspect as you review the draft 2013 Code that you too
will find items that you think should be altered. Please share those thoughts with us at
the open meetings or directly with me (875-3396 or [email protected]). Our
vision is to ultimately present a ballot to the membership that includes a yes or no vote
on the 2013 Code plus separate line items for each recommended change that will also
be yes or no votes.
When it is available, please take the time to review the drafted 2013 Code and then
participate in the open meetings. Together we can make this work!

Town Meetings of the members of the Association will be held at the Lake Lorelei Clubhouse twice
during each calendar year, once in the spring and once in the fall, on such dates as shall be designated
from time to time by the Board of Trustees. The purpose of these meetings is for the discussion of matters of local
government by a General Assembly of the Members in Good Standing, and to give the opportunity to express opinions and
ask questions. Such meetings will not be related to any other regularly scheduled or special meetings.
June 16, 2013 Town Meeting
During the June 16, 2013 Town Meeting several issues were discussed.
This is an unofficial summary of the June 16, 2013 Town Meeting.
1. Fireworks 2013 will be headed up by the Board of Trustees. Donations will be
collected at the gate from Noon – 9pm. The gates will be open to the public at 6PM.
2. Thank You to BOT for attending Summer Kick-Off events, a great time was had by all.
Side note: Jane Wyman, BOT president, was on the winning golf team at the
LL Golf Outing.
3. Questions were asked about the formation of the Finance Committee announced at
the January BOT meeting. No committee has yet been formed.
4. Algae problems on Lake Grunwald.
5. Fishing on LLPOA properties after 10PM.
6. Unleashed dogs attacking walkers, runners, and bikers.
7. Several concerns were expressed about boating safety,
The use of wake enhancers
Lake rules, double and triple tubing, skiing and tubing after dusk
Boating Safety- Ohio law requires boaters born on or after January 1, 1982, to
successfully complete either a boating course or a proficiency exam in order to
operate a boat powered by more than 10 horsepower. (Ohio Revised Code
1547.05-1547.052; effective 1/1/2000) Without this course your boating
insurance could be null.

Whereby The Legend of Lorelei encourages individuals to
submit articles for publication, any opinion expressed in the
article reflects only the opinion of the author and not the LLPOA,

Legend of Lorelei. The following article is solely the opinion
of the author.
By Bill Herdman
One community improvement that has been talked about for years is the development of an
alternative entrance—more specifically a rear entrance from Fayetteville-Blanchester Road.
With our improving roads under constant pressure, a gate system already implemented, and
the price of gasoline in the $4 range … it seems like a perfect time to reopen the discussion.
We are forming an exploratory group consisting of representatives from the Fayetteville Fire
and EMT, Fayetteville School District, Brown County Sheriff’s Department, Rumpke, LLPOA
membership, and LLPOA administration. This group will be charged with documenting public
opinion, building statistics on probable usage, predicting improved emergency response
times, and estimating implementation costs.
What do you think about the idea? Here are some questions to consider and we would like
to know your answers so, please, share with us by sending your responses to Bill Herdman,
1245 Eifel Cove, Fayetteville, Oh. 45118.
Yes No
Would you like to see a rear entrance established?
Would a rear entrance save you time and money?
Would you be willing to pay an extra fee to use a back entrance?
Would you be interested in serving on the panel exploring this project?
