ALSA Boat Decal

BOAT DECALS

***********************************************************
NOTICE 

Because of ongoing problems with non-residents fishing in our lake and at the park/boat launch, the Azalea Lakes North Association and Azalea Lakes Subdivision Association have decided to adopt changes in our policies.
 
A sign will be installed stating that the park/boat launch closes at dark. The Kleinpeter Sheriff's Station is working with us and will respond if any violators are there after dark.
 
Effective January 1st, the code at the boat launch will be changed. All boats, big or small, will be required to have two decals permanently attached to the front sides of their boat. No outside boats will be allowed in the lake. Only homeowners with boats will be allowed. If a boat is on the lake without decals, the sheriff will be called and action taken. The decals will be provided to homeowners free of charge. If you need decals for your boat, call Cyril Adams (ALSA)at 978.8537 or Sammy Romeo (ALNA) at 751-9797. The decals are available.
 
We apologize for any inconvenience but this is to protect our greatest asset in Azalea Lakes Subdivision, our beautiful lake. We ask that all homeowners work together with us to protect it. If you see a boat without decals, please call the Kleinpeter Substation at 389-5714 and report it.
 
In addition, swimming or tubing is not allowed in the lake.
Remember all bass are catch and release.

Azalea Lakes North Homeowners Association 

***********************************************************

The above notice was distributed by ALNA to its homeowners in late December 2008.  ALSA has implemented this policy also. We would like to have all decals distributed by March 15, 2009.
  
If you have a boat – of any kind or size – please contact Cyril Adams at 225.978.8537 to register your boat and get your decals. You'll get two decals for each of your boat(s) and they should be placed on both sides of the front of the boat. THERE IS NO CHARGE TO REGISTER YOUR BOAT(S) OR FOR THE DECALS!
  
Thanks for your cooperation and support.
   
Also, please do NOT publish photos of fish caught in Azalea Lakes. This only encourages unauthorized visits by non-homeowners and non-residents.

  PUT YOUR CAR KEYS BESIDE YOUR BED AT NIGHT
          
     Put your car keys beside your bed at night. If you hear a noise outside your home or someone trying to get in your house, just press the panic button for your car. The alarm will be set off, and the horn will continue to sound until either you turn it off or the car battery dies.
    
     This tip came from a neighborhood watch coordinator. Next time you come home for the night and you start to put your keys away, think of this:
  
      It's a security alarm system that you probably already have and requires no installation. Test it. It will go off from most everywhere inside your house and will keep honking until your battery runs down or until you reset it with the button on the key fob chain. It works if you park in your driveway or garage If your car alarm goes off when someone is trying to break into your house, odds are the burglar rapist won't stick around... After a few seconds all the neighbors will be looking out their windows to see who is out there and sure enough the criminal won't want that. And remember to carry your keys while walking to your car in a parking lot. The alarm can work the same way there. This is something that should really be shared with everyone. Maybe it could save a life or a sexual abuse crime.
  
      Think about telling everyone you know about this fantastic idea. It would also be useful for any emergency, such as a heart attack, where you can't reach a phone. Consider carrying your car keys with you in case you fall outside and no one is around to hear you call for help. You can activate the car alarm and then someone will know there's a problem.
