The Board has received and accepted the resignations of the entire Activities Committee. We thank Jo Lindsay for chairing the committee, as well as each member for the work they did for a successful 2017 season. As a reminder, the committee consisted of the following people:
Jo Lindsay, Chair
Some of the activities provided were an arts and craft sale, Mexican potluck dinner with Armour Gomez as the entertainment and blind wine tasting. The season wrapped up with a celebratory Oktoberfest featuring music, Bavarian beer, brats and more.
In addition to providing expected activities, the committee also assumed the task of purchasing a warming oven and pans with funds collected by the past committee for that purpose. The oven was broken in this season and worked great.
Be sure to join us in thanking the committee for a job well done. Not only did their efforts help in building positive relationships through fun activities in the community, they did it all and ended the day $300 under budget! Besides the planned special activities and events, there were many activities that took place on a fairly regular basis. The board thanks the following people for organizing and taking responsibility for those activities:
Billiards – Daryl Bystrom
Book Club – Susan Jenkin
Bridge – Jackie Schafer
Bunco – Jan Koespel
Hand, Foot and Toe – Pat Palma
Line Dancing – Lila Dudley
Mahjongg – Karen Bivens
Poker – Lois Davis & Alice Sims
Walk Aerobics – Dorothea Blondfield

Member assessments will remain the same as 2017. There has not been an increase since 2015 for the many services and amenities these assessments cover. We remind you that White Mountain Vacation Village is a “private” subdivision responsible for maintaining its infrastructure without the benefit of municipal contributions from the City of Show Low. We take pride in the fact that we have been able to contribute to and increase the reserve account to help maintain an adequate balance to preserve and protect assets of the Association in the years to come. We goal is to balance healthy reserves while avoiding the need for a special assessment. The 2018 budget includes an amount for an updated Reserves Study.
Some of the projects for 2018 which your assessments support:
- 2017 did not bring a major forest fire to our area. However, we continue the elimination of dead or dying trees and control of explosive new growth. This is a necessary and fundamental strategy in our efforts to control or prevent a possible wildfire. It also benefits our members by improving visibility, which may reduce unexpected and dangerous encounters with wildlife in the area.
- Road repairs and maintenance
- Clubhouse repairs and maintenance
- Pond maintenance
- Gazebos repair and maintenance
- Hiking trails repair and maintenance
White Mountain Vacation Village Amenities supported by your assessments include:
- Hiking trails
- Picnic tables
- Recreational activities
Items included as part of your assessments:
Your 2018 coupon books will be mailed separately. Please plan to make your monthly assessment payments as follows, beginning in January 2018:

Unit 3 Phase 1 = $120.00 + $40 (secondary assessment for co-owned carports and lot maintenance) = $160.00
Unit 3 Phase 2 = $120.00 + $10 (secondary assessment for Mountain Lodges common area) = $130.00
