Ponderosa Needs Your Help
We’re in dire need of Committee chairs, co-chairs, and members for the coming year. Please read the NOTICE from the Ponderosa manager!
Arts & Crafts Fair a Big Success!
We had a GREAT turnout of crafters (14 tables set up, some with several crafters per table and most with more than one type of craft). It was so much fun and very exciting to see what true artists we have in this area and actually very flattering that they wanted to participate in our first annual Arts & Crafts Fair!
The turnout of attendees was phenomenal. We calculate that we had somewhere between 275 and 300 attendees. For our first effort, that was just incredible. People seemed to have a great time, munching on goodies, talking to crafters and being amazed at all the talent we have in our area.
The free craft table kept the kids busy while the parents shopped. They made cards, bookmarks, luggage tags and drawings with the craft supplies available. They had a great time. Can’t wait for next year! Check out more Arts & Crafts Fair pictures.
Latest Fire Regulations
More information can be found on the website lwfr.org or LWFR Facebook page.
Open burning is again permitted in our area. Piles should remain 4 ft x 4 ft or smaller, larger piles require DNR permitting. Means to extinguish must be at hand and the fire MUST be completely extinguished prior to walking away.
Please be mindful of excess smoke that may be a nuisance to your neighbors (a hot fire produces less smoke). Please don't burn during wind eveents and always reduce the embers being emitted from your fire. Thank you all for your willingness to comply during the restriction period and stay safe.
Mick Lamar, Fire Chief LWFR
We Need Your Vote
The Ponderosa Board of Directors found that a majority vote of the Ponderosa Membership to change the use of one community owned lot to greenbelt property will reduce the tax paid by the Membership. Currently, this lot is being used recreationally for beach access and reclassification to greenbelt is more appropriate classification. This will reduce the amount of tax paid on this lot determined by the Assessor’s office. Once this passes, the property will join the current green belt properties. The property that is being referenced is at 23101 Saddle Street, Parcel number 261724792005. Every vote counts! Please sign the attached document and return to the Ponderosa office at Ponderosa Community club
Leavenworth, WA 98826.
