June 4, 2019 Update

I. Annual dues invoices

As you are probably aware, invoices were sent out for our 2019-2020 dues. They went out via email on Sunday night to all residents for whom we have working email addresses. Then yesterday, paper invoices were sent to everyone.

Dues are $250, and are payable by June 30.

You can pay by simply mailing a check to:

Spring Lake HOA
PO Box 849
Walker, LA 70785

If your bank offers free bill pay, have them send payment to the above address. This is the BEST way to pay, as it is completely free! Capital One and Hancock Whitney have this service, and it works very well. Other banks probably do as well.

You can pay online using the payment link in the email, via either a bank transfer or a card. Unfortunately, there are fees associated with these payment methods, which are beyond our control. We do not make anything on these fees.

For online payments:
Bank transfer: Add $2.53, for a total payment of $252.53
With a card: Add $7.72, for a total payment of $257.72

If you have to give us a card number over the phone, the fee is $9.06, so the total payment would be $259.06

NOTE: If you pay online, you MUST manually add the fee to your payment. It will show that there is a credit balance, which is correct. However, that amount is what pays the fee that we are charged for online payments. If you only pay $250, the net payment will be short by that amount, and you’ll have a balance due for the fee afterwards.

II. Live Oak Baptist Church VBS at the park

This past weekend, Pastor Donald Turner along with several other members of their church reserved the park pavilion for a party to kick off their summer Vacation Bible School. The event was a great success, and Pastor Turner sent us these kind words afterward:

Spring Lake team, just wanted to say thanks for all of the help this past week in getting the park reserved for our Vacation Bible School party (for Live Oak Baptist Church). Everything went really smoothly and I appreciate it. You guys went above and beyond. Special thanks to Greg and Tom who both came out to help with getting things unlocked and turned on at the pavilion and even stuck around and hung out with us for a while.

This was clearly easier than working with the management company last year. Thanks for everything you guys are doing, we appreciate it!

We really appreciate this group, and hope they’ll be back next year!

III. Judson Baptist Church Backyard Bible Club at the park June 13 and July 11

Resident Robbie Isom is the children’s minister at Judson Baptist Church. They have reserved the park pavilion from 6-8PM on Thursday, June 13 and Thursday, July 11. This is for children in grades K-5.

IV. Entrance renovations have begun!

The fine folks at Alford’s Landscaping started work bright and early this morning on the Sapphire Lake entrance. They have already done some preliminary grading, dug the footing for the new stone retaining wall, and have the southern wall already in place! By tomorrow afternoon, they plan to have all stone in, the grading done for the new sod, the other 2 entrances trimmed, weeded, and mulched! Sod will probably be next week, and plants will be installed after that depending on what they find with the irrigation system. That system has apparently been off for quite some time, and has leaks and other problems. This was expected; they just don’t know yet the extent of the issues needing repair. No matter what though, we will soon have 3 beautiful entrances! Note that we will be pressure washing the sign at the Sapphire Lake entrance, and the others too if they need it.
