Board of Trustees Request for Nominations Form

2015 Nimination Form

Click HERE or the image above
to print the nomination form.

Once again, it’s time to recruit smart and active members of our community to run for election to the Shawnee Hills Property Owners’ Association (SHPOA) Board of Trustees. Each trustee serves a 3-year term, and attends meetings once a month to make decisions regarding the management of our community and its assets.

Maybe YOU would be a great candidate? If you know a good neighbor who cares about this community and could contribute to the planning and decisions that are needed, nominate them to the upcoming election.

Ballots will be sent out with 2015 dues statements, and new board members normally take their positions beginning with the March board meeting.

Terms for current trustees Jim Dichito and George Huff are ending now. Jim Dichito has agreed to run for office again, but George Huff must retire from the board to focus on his health.

The best way to have a great board of trustees is to have several good candidates to choose from in a fair election. That is the concept our country is founded upon. To nominate yourself or anyone in the community, print and fill out the "Request for Nominations" form by clicking on this form to the left or call clerk Janet Barker at 937-902-6194. This form will also be available in December's Smoke Signals.


Sign knocked down by high winds


Nov 24th, 2014.

Strong winds hit our area today, blowing off shingles, knocking down branches, and stripping the last few autumn leaves off the trees. With gusts up to 50 mph, the November wind storm was strong enough to blast down the SHPOA lighted sign at the main entrance on Jasper Rd.

The sign was pretty old, and in rough shape anyway. Trustees have talked about the need to replace it for months, but procrastinated due to costs, since there were so many projects of higher priority. However, thanks to the winds of November 24th, 2014, the old sign just became a much higher priority for Shawnee Hills.

Historical Information

We are looking for historical information from long-time lake residents of photos and documents that have shown the lake and surrounding areas. This information will be compiled and included in several issues of Smoke Signals and this web site. Please contact us at newsletter@shawneelake.org for any information that may help us in the history of our lake community

We hope you'll enjoy this website, which is dedicated to one of the most wonderful lake communities in the Midwest. Lake Shawnee is a great place to live, whether you like to swim, fish, ski, or just enjoy looking at the lake. The lake is around 250 acres and a terrific place to raise a family, has great schools nearby, and lots of good things to see and do every day. This website will attempt to show the world a little of what it's like to live in our wonderful community, and to provide important information to potential newcomers.
