This was sent to the Board by our Activities Coordinator Lori Marengo-Ferretti. It is very sad that it has come to this and the park is all the lesser for it.Hello SSL family and friends. Unfortunately our Facebook page was a hot mess this past weekend. I decided not to jump into the mud throwing, name calling and unfounded accusations, but I do have A LOT to say..... I want to thank everyone who has supported me and the activities I run for the past 18 years. I started out with a 3 and 5 year old who were bored and needed something to do. My role as “Activities Director” here has grown from buying clearance arts and crafts items at AC Moore and holding “Kids Day” in the Activity Room with a few kids (paid for out of my own money) to having an actual budget and being able to book cool and exciting things like a Luau, Country Rodeo, Mystery Night, 80’s Prom, Elvis Night, Doo- Woop, Axe Throwing, Christmas In July, Casino Night....the list goes on and on. The sky’s the limit. If there is an event I want to run and can’t afford, I sell, serve or raffle things off to raise the money to do it. It has almost become a challenge to plan bigger and better events each year. I have LOVED and ENJOYED every (well almost every) minute of it! It’s crazy to say, but by August my wheels are already turning thinking of what new and fun things I can bring to SSL for the next season. I love this place so much and I get so much pleasure out of seeing everyone happy and enjoying events I thought of and planned. Things changed this past Sunday. The FB postings that played out were not only disheartening, but actually disgusting to me. Most of what occurred could have been avoided by asking a few simple questions and waiting for a response. Instead baseless, unfounded accusations were thrown around on a social media platform of 1.2k followers. Although the outpouring of support for me (and the Board) has been tremendous, it only takes one nasty comment to plant a seed of doubt in someone. To those involved, I hope you realize once your false accusations and nasty comments are typed and out there, they can never be taken back or erased in the minds of those who read it. Private messages afterwards cannot undo the damage caused to one’s reputation. And although there are some who find the 3 ring circus that unfolded amusing, you need to take into consideration the toll it takes on ones reputation, potential job risks and personal well being. Would you want it done to you or your family member?!? I am so upset and disgusted right now and all involved should be ashamed of their behavior!!! We are a community, neighbors, friends, family....how can we treat each other this way?!? Respectful questioning and debate is great and welcomed, but what went down Sunday was just down right rude, mean, false and repulsive- not to mention illegal. Liable and defamation of character ARE actual crimes!This no longer feels like my happy place and right now this drama is taking a toll on my health. Because of this I am taking a break from running activities, at least for the remainder of the season. ALL ACTIVITY FUNDS ARE ACCOUNTED FOR and with our Treasurer. I will no longer be holding the “Pop Up” events this weekend as I stated at Sunday’s meeting. I was able to plan part of Fun Day before this sh*t show occurred (inflatables and magician), but will not be booking anything else and will not be there to oversee the day. Also, the Bar None Band is already booked for Octoberfest, but I will not be running the events for kids/adults leading up to the band. I am sorry if this seems like I’m taking my ball and leaving, but again, I am sickened by the behavior of some in this park right now and I need a break!! I’m praying this feeling goes away and next season it returns to being my happy place once again. We have such a great thing here at SSL. Can we PLEASE try to act like the loving and caring community we SHOULD be!?! ... See MoreSee Less

Attn: SSL OwnersWe have just posted and emailed communication clearing up any confusion from the meeting on 8/22/21 and the proposed capital expenses. The activities on the Facebook page this week have been disheartening. Healthy debate is ok, but some statements could be considered defamation of character, which is not only hurtful, but also illegal. This page was intended for sharing useful information among owners. Moving forward, we will have a zero tolerance policy for violating the group rules, which include being kind and courteous and no bullying. While some may be entertained by the recent posts, others have been hurt and wrongly accused and verbally attacked. If someone violates the rules, the post will be removed and the person associated may also be removed from the group. We encourage you to attend the owners meetings as well as reach out to board@seashorelinecr.com with any questions or concerns. Sincerely, SSL Board of Trustees ... See MoreSee Less

We would like to take the time to clear up any confusion as a result of Sunday's owners meeting. We will send official meeting minutes when we've had some more time to complete them, but in the short term, we will summarize the capital improvements discussion.• Replacement & expansion of security system throughout the park - there was a request for approval to budget for this. The budget request was not to exceed $25,000 for this project. That number reflects a cap on a very comprehensive project. It is not just for cameras, but a full security system replacement for the property. Quotes still must be obtained and the project itself requires an assessment of the property by a security firm, project proposals, estimates on equipment, materials, features available, room for growth, construction costs (there is a possibility we may have to trench areas to run cable), & telecommunication considerations. In the end, this may not be a project we decide to move forward with based on the estimates we receive. The ask to the community was for a cap for expenditures. That said, there is still a lot of information that needs to be gathered, such as quotes and an assessment of what the benefits are for the cost and repercussions it could potentially have on other expenses, such as insurance. Once we have gathered the appropriate information, we would present it to the owners at a meeting, be it a seasonal one or special one in the off-season. Then, and only then, after discussion with the membership of the owners, we would take a vote to implement it. We wanted to at least get a number in the budget at the annual meeting. This way if we get to a point next year where it’s financially feasible, and is approved by owners based on a proposal, we would be able to move forward. The security system is intended to serve several purposes none of which is to create a “big brother” environment in the park. We don’t have staff continuously monitoring video. The purpose of any camera is to watch over common areas and key security points of the campground (such as the entrance roads, trash yard, etc.) and should there be an issue we can use footage to get answers on how something happened. Such as if there is a dispute over an insurance claim, this could provide proof. If a child goes missing, we would be better equipped to help (this has happened before). Having a security system in place could also deter crime by simply knowing there are cameras in place. The investigation of a new security system also includes electronic access to community buildings and fire monitoring. Unfortunately due to some interruptions, we were unable to get this all described in detail during the meeting, or it would have come off with more clarity. Bottom line is that we will not be moving forward with this project without an official vote. The board is offering solutions to issues that get reported to us, but ultimately, this is a community decision. • New water softening system - this must be replaced as it has far exceeded its life expectancy. 3 bids were obtained and were within a few hundred dollars of each other. As the quotes are all very similar in price, we will be moving forward with the bid from our current provider, estimated at $17,400. This bid was neither the lowest or the highest.• Money from activity events - there are a handful of events where we have the opportunity to raise a little bit of extra money for activities. These are things like the silent auction/raffles, 50/50, or ice cream social. The activities budget is $11,200. This reflects about 14 weekends between Memorial Day and Labor Day, and our favorite Oktoberfest. Many weekends have multiple events. The activities coordinator, Lori, has to plan out how to use that budget for 374 site owners and their guests. Not everyone will come, but in some cases, you have 10 people from a single family showing up. Some events, such as the Business Band that everyone loves, can cost several $1000 to make it happen. 90% of events are "free" (being paid from the activities fund from a portion of your condo fees). All transactions are recorded and approved. This budget can only go so far, so any additional money raised goes back into the activities fund. Only $30 of your condo fee goes into the activities fund. That's a great deal for the amount of fun we get to have over 14 weeks. • Finances - we presented at the meeting the certified audit, which will be shared with owners when we distribute the meeting minutes. The audit showed that we are in good financial standing. Condo fees for the 2022 season will remain the same ($1000) $300 for replacement reserve, $670 for operations, and $30 for activities. We urge you to reach out to the board directly at board@seashorelinecr.com if you have questions or concerns. We also encourage you to attend the monthly meetings during the season. The purpose of those meetings is to share information and have an opportunity to ask questions. A public Facebook page is not the way to go about solving problems or addressing concerns. Some of the statements made could be considered defamation of character, which aside from being incredibly hurtful, is illegal. Defamation of character occurs when an individual's character or reputation is tarnished as a result of a fraudulent statement or action of another individual. The behavior on that page has been appalling and does not reflect the amazing community that we really are. Thank you for your continued support! ... See MoreSee Less
