8/29/2019 – LOGGING TRUCKS HAVE RIGHT OF WAY
There was an incident on the Mad River Property today where some members, on atvs, failed to yield to a logging truck. We have to remember that SAFETY is FIRST on MRC Properties and WE ARE ESSENTIALLY GUESTS on this property.Yes we pay a leasing fee, but the activities of the landowner take priority over our activities. LOGGING TRUCKS HAVE RIGHT OF WAY. Failure to yield will result in LOSS OF YOUR MEMBERSHIP.
8/28/2019 – Loop Road Closed
Loop Road is closed until further notice. There will be logging going on for the next few weeks. We will let you know when the road is open.
8/23/2019 – Newsletter Delayed
I have to apologize for the newsletter being delayed. I have taken a great deal of time and effort to put pictures in it this month. Finally got it done and… too big to upload. So I will have to rework the newsletter and try to figure a way to get our pictures out there so you can see them. Thank you for your patience while I figure this out. Rick
7/25/2019 – NEED A REAL EASY WORKDAY?
Many hands make light work, or so my father used to say. Thank you to the people who have stepped up to help. Darien feels good about the help he has lined up. Even so, he has offered credit for a full workday in exchange for a couple of hours help on Sunday for the Annual Picnic. He is planning a really great picnic and hopes this will go down as the best one yet! If you have a couple hours this Sunday, this is an easy way to get in your required workday. You’ll already be there for the picnic anyway… So, please call Darien at 315-778-2680 or email him at
Let him know you will help make this a great 125th Anniversary Celebration.
