2019 Board of Directors Election

There were three (3) positions on the Board open for election this year. Three (3) nominations were received by the May 31, 2019 deadline therefore, according to the SLPOA By-laws (see below) the Secretary declares that the three candidates (Walter Tomilowicz, Amy Panetta and Wendy Westock) are elected to terms beginning August 2019 and ending July 2022. 

Sunrise Lake Property Owners Association By-Laws:

3.4.2.c. If, after the closing of nominations for the members of the Board of Directors, there are a number of legally qualified candidates that is equal to or less then the number of vacancies, the Secretary is directed to declare the candidates elected and the formal election shall be cancelled. Any vacancies not filled by this process shall be filled as interim vacancies as stated in these by laws.

There will be a Membership Meeting on July 20, but it will not include an Election.  A meeting notice, summer Newsletter plus Balance Sheet and Profit/Loss Statement for the 2018-19 Fiscal Year will be mailed to all property owners the first week in July. 

Since the formal election is cancelled, Meet the Candidates, previously scheduled for Sunday, June 23 is therefore also cancelled. Instead, come join us for the June Pool Party at the pool, from 3 to 7 pm. 

The SLPOA Board of Directors


The SLPOA Board has received the following letter of resignation from long time board member, Chip Dingman:

“Please consider May 31, 2019 as the date of my resignation from the Sunrise Board of Directors as we will no longer be homeowners in Sunrise Lake.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the present Board of Directors and all the other Directors that I have served with over the last 10 years for their work and dedication to improving Sunrise Lake.

We have come a long way since 2009 and I hope that the community continues to move forward.”


The board of directors would like to thank Chip for all his hard work and dedication to the Sunrise Lake Community.

Due to this resignation, there is now one open Board position. The term for this position expires in July 2020 and would be eligible for (re)election at that time. Since this vacancy occurs mid-term the replacement will be appointed by the Board and therefore is not an elected position. 

Any Sunrise unit owner, in good standing, is eligible to serve on the Board. If you are interested, please send an email to Wendy Westock, SLPOA President at or drop off a letter of interest at the SLPOA office no later than Friday, June 21, 2019.

Letters of interest and emails must be received by 5:00 pm Friday, June 21, 2019 in order to be considered. Please include contact information, including Sunrise address and a brief statement telling the Board why you are interested in the position and how you see yourself contributing to the community in this role.

This is an opportunity to become directly involved in your community. The Board encourages all interested candidates to apply.



Over the past several weeks, multiple incidents of vandalism have occurred at the basketball courts and the Cabin lake boat launch.  One of the basketball hoops is damaged beyond repair, the nets have been stolen and the porta-john has been vandalized and pushed over almost daily.

Yesterday, several juveniles were seen throwing rocks from the edge of the ballfield at cars on Sunrise Drive, thankfully nobody was injured.  Security and the SLPOA office has not been able to positively identify the responsible individuals.   If anyone has information about these incidents, please notify the office or security.  All calls will be kept confidential.

Not only is this behavior extremely dangerous to everyone involved, but each time something gets damaged, the cost of repairs comes directly from the assessment money paid by residents.  Until these incidents stop, we will not be able to repair the damaged basketball hoops.  The porta-john is being relocated to the playground area.

In response to these incidents, the Ballfield will be considered closed at 9:00 pm each night.  Security will be enforcing this.  As stated in our Rules and Regulations, all residents must have their Sunrise Lake badges with them when using the common facilities.  Security will be enforcing this rule and will be asking anyone on the ballfield or other community common areas for identification.  Please be sure that children and adults carry their Sunrise badges with them anytime they are on community property (photos of badges are not acceptable).  Also check with the SLPOA office to ensure that your cars are registered and that you display a Sunrise sticker.

If you see anything suspicious, please contact Security immediately at 1-570-689-4722, extension 7 or the SLPOA office at 570-686-1880 (office hours are 9:00 am—5:00 pm Monday—Friday and Saturday from 9:00 am—1:00 pm.) Please note that the office will be closed for Memorial Day, Monday, May 27th.   In the event of an emergency, please call 911 for the State Police.

She has a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and a Master’s Degree in Urban Planning with a Transportation Concentration.

  • We have received numerous complaints from property owners in the immediate area of the bus stops. Please be respectful and do not trespass on their property including blocking their driveway, parking in their driveways and allowing children to play on their property. Please remember that all lots in Sunrise Lake are privately owned regardless of whether it is developed or not. Also please be mindful of the fact that during bus stop times, the roads (main roads and side roads) are still being utilized by our residents traveling within the community. For everyone's safety, please have children wait for the bus in a group on one side of the road off the pavement as much as possible as to not block traffic flow. 
    In order to ensure that only Sunrise residents are utilizing the bus stops located within Sunrise Lake, please be sure you have a SLPOA sticker on your vehicle. Security will be enforcing this at all bus stops including the late bus stop over the next few weeks.
    Thank you for helping to keep our community safe.
