Thanks, Quivira. . .

for the head nods, hugs, cards, food. . .
On behalf of our family, I would like to offer my deepest gratitude to the neighbors in the community we have called home for the past 34 years. Through the most difficult of times, we were lifted with a head nod, a hug, a card with heartfelt words, an abundance of food and the support that helped in ways that can’t be described.
It’s a testament to this community that such caring for each other exists.
~Ernie Block

for helping teens who need it and for fostering community service among our youth. . .
A heartfelt thank you for the community support that we received for our Mothers’ Club community service project to benefit The Blue Door Project.
We delivered a full van of donations including:
– over $400 in gift cards to movies and restaurants
– over 100 toothbrushes and 100 tubes of toothpaste
– 5 large bags of clothes
– over 50 bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash
– board games, outdoor games and gaming systems
– two large boxes of food
– and much more!
Thank you again. It was wonderful for our kids to be able to give back with the support of an amazing community.
The Blue Door Project is a Kansas City non-profit whose mission is to provide housing and care to teens in the foster system. To learn more about The Blue Door Project visit www.thebluedoorproject.org

for quietly setting a good example.
Early a.m., Saturday, July 1: As I was on my way to taking Oskar, my dog, on his morning walk and golf cart ride, I spotted this fellow picking up dead limbs, probably from a recent storm, along Lakeshore, and loading them into a John Deere maintenance cart. It looked a little like our General Manager, Geary Goss.
A short time later, at the brush dumpsters behind the tennis courts, I got a better look. It was Geary, all right. I asked him if this was covered in his job description. He told me he had spotted the branches and really wanted everything to look nice for the guests who would be arriving that day for weekend festivities.
Was he dumping the branches in the area marked “No Dumping”? He was not. Rather, he was taking the branches, an armload at a time, and depositing them in the dumpsters, sans plastic bags.
About fifteen minutes later, as Oskar and I finished our walk, Geary was picking up cardboard on the parking lot around the recycle container and putting it where it belonged and doing the same with glass that had missed its mark.
Multiply the “power of one” by 900+ residents of Lake Quivira. What a difference we could make.

Letter to the Editor

Welcome to Lake Quivira:, A Community Connected by Dreams
By Larry Meeker
Welcome, Geary Goss, to Lake Quivira. As our new General Manager, you have joined a truly “unique” community. Just ask anyone and they will tell you we are unique, and don’t be surprised if they explain it differently. Our mystique is difficult to define.
Like suburbia that is often considered a manifestation of “The American Dream,” Quivira is the manifestation of our sense of uniqueness. But, don’t be fooled and mistake our amenities for that uniqueness. Many communities have gates, country club amenities and even hiking trails; that doesn’t make us unique. Our uniqueness resides in a state of mind that tells us we are home when we drive through the front gate.
Although each of us defines that state of mind in our own personal way, there is a collective state of mind that evidences itself in different facets of our community. For example, we revere our history.
The plaque at the front gate commemorating Duane Everhart, a long-time guard who served from before World War II until his death in 1988, is a strong testament to our sense of community. Community is not just the residents; community reaches out to our country club members and occasional employees such as Duane. This is a place where very different people can come together and relish their kinship.
Our antiquated “Lake Quivira” entrance sign may look a bit odd to some because it spans only our entrance lanes. That’s because we had to save the sign when we widened the entrance and put a new guardhouse in the middle. We opted to renovate and expand our existing clubhouse in 2000, when a new clubhouse that would have cost only $500,000 more would have been far more functional, encompassed the pre-school and golf pro shop, accommodated management staff and had nearly 5,000 square feet of space left over for exercise equipment.
Our history is important to us because we sense our uniqueness has deep roots in that history, and we are reluctant to make major changes that might endanger our uniqueness. Perhaps the loss of green space—another attribute of our history—or having homes built next to the golf course nixed two of the three relatively recent development proposals. Or, maybe having a new development where homes would look like a typical suburban development felt out of character with our eclectic appearance. When we’re not exactly sure where those roots lie, we are reluctant to dig too close to them.
The mere fact that we’ve talked about new amenities and housing development for the 42 years I have lived here is also a window on Quivira’s uniqueness. Although action has been minimal and change slow, conversations have been long and often complicated. Those conversations alone, however, are part of the glue that binds us together and creates community. Sometimes the quest is as important as the goal.
Our sense of history, our sense of community and our continuing quest for Quivira’s future make us self-referential. We set our own standards and don’t look to others as a guide to our destiny. At times, that is challenging, such as when we court country club members. For us, however, those members are more than outside members; they are part of our Quivira family. . . something you can’t get at other clubs. Perhaps that’s why many of them ultimately buy Quivira homes and move here permanently.
Our amenities don’t have to be first class or serve all our needs. If you want to jet ski you need to go elsewhere, just as if you want a championship golf course you need to play elsewhere. It’s our sense of community that compels us to support a diverse set of amenities, many of which we may never use.
So, welcome, Geary, to your new family. We look forward to our conversations with you about our past, our present and our continuing quest for Quivira’s future. Some of us truly believe Coronado found his city of gold right here at Quivira; we’re just not sure what to make of it. So don’t be surprised if we are hesitant in our actions, and be sure to engage all of us in the conversations about our future.

Calling all stand-up paddle boarders
Three years ago, I lost both my parents to Alzheimer’s and dementia. Since then, Lake Quivira has also lost Paul Brown, Chuck Averill and Pam Van Saun to this hideous disease. Maybe you know others who have been affected by this disease as well. What does that have to do with stand up paddle boarding?
The Longest Day, is a fundraising event to show our love for all those affected by Alzheimer’s disease and to raise funds to advance the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Will you please join me?
I would be very grateful to anyone who has a SUP to join me. Would you also be willing to share your board with anyone who does not have one and would like to try it? We will be meeting at the yacht club pavilion on June 17 at 11 a.m. If you would like to participate, please give me a call or text at 913-231-6659, or email me at jbiron@kc.rr.com

0517 seasonal decor 2House Committee says thanks to Garden Club
Spring made its appearance inside the Clubhouse with vining hydrangea topiaries, vases topped with cherry blossom branches and a garden box brimming with yellow tulips.
The House Committee gives a heartfelt thanks to the Garden Club for providing the funding to purchase this beautiful seasonal décor. Thanks are also extended to Peggy Hughes who donates her time and artistic skills to create and freshen the arrangements throughout the year.
“The staff has so much gratitude for all that the Garden Club does,” said Clubhouse Manager Mark Allen. “Their efforts make the Clubhouse an even lovelier place than it would be on its own. We were especially appreciative of the beautiful flowers and decorations for Spring.”
To help keep the décor looking its best, the House Committee asks the community to please contact Peggy Hughes before adjusting any of the arrangements.
Lake Quivira continues to be a special place to live and play because of the generosity and hard work exhibited by so many of our members.

Two Past Q Inc. Presidents share thoughts about choosing a new General Manager

By Larry Meeker and Leon Rieke, Past Presidents, Quivira, Inc.
The most important decision our Board will make this year is the choice of a new general manager. It is not an easy decision given the scope of the job. Few, if any, candidates will have experience in all the areas they will be charged with managing. Hence, the challenge will lie in prioritizing the skills where the Board opts for experience and trusting the candidate can learn the other skills.
As we often like to say, “Quivira is a unique community.” Part of that stems from it being both a gated community and a country club. Some of us like to think of it as a community with country club amenities. Even compared to other communities/cities, Quivira is unusual with its far higher than average level of volunteerism and associated clubs/organizations. Thus, it is not surprising that residents play a strong role in community matters. Just try to find another city in the metro area that achieves even half our voter turnout in government elections!
At the same time, we are a country club with valued off-lake members who contribute not only to our sense of community, but also to our financial well-being. Were it not for being a gated community where homeowners are required to be country club members, we would be two separate and distinct entities, a city and a country club. Instead, we have a combination home owner’s association and country club we call Quivira, Inc.
Not to be overlooked in all this is our City, which was formed so Quivira could retain its unique identity. Its primary services include enforcing building codes, maintaining roads outside Quivira, Inc. boundaries and providing police protection for residents. Although the job of Quivira, Inc. General Manager does not encompass any city responsibilities, it is essential for this person to be knowledgeable of city governance issues so residents can get the most from the Quivira, Inc./City of Lake Quivira relationship.
Since Quivira, Inc. first opted for a general manager position in the late 1980s, our general managers have come to the job with either city experience or country club experience and then set about learning the other part of the job. City managers bring strength in budgeting, money management and people skills. Their experience with roads, parks, policing and municipal amenities provides a sound basis for coordinating activities with our city, managing many of our assets and learning new jobs like golf course and clubhouse management.
In contrast to city managers, whose job it is to serve geographically defined residents and nourish community, country club managers run a business in a competitive world. Their job is to sign up and serve a membership from a much broader region without regard to political boundaries. Hence, their success is defined by membership numbers and how one competes with other clubs.
The Quivira, Inc. General Manager job clearly requires many skills and, most important, the ability to understand the tradeoffs between community and amenities that keep us in that sweet spot of being “unique.” It’s that sweet spot that gets residents to support a basket of amenities, many of which they may never use or, at best, see themselves using at a later stage in life. It’s that vision of living in a lifestyle community that compels them to put community over their own personal interests.
Our experience with these matters as past Presidents of Quivira, Inc. suggests it will be better to start with an individual with city management experience—preferably with a master’s in public administration—and let them learn the country club side of our operations, rather than vice versa. They are more likely to understand our “unique” situation at the outset and put our amenities in a community context going forward. Furthermore, we have excellent staff who manage the clubhouse and golf course, our primary country club amenities.
Regardless of who is hired, we all owe it to the new General Manager to help them understand the attributes of our community that keep new generations of residents seeing us as “unique.”

Fifty-year resident offers kudos for Quivira trails and trailblazers

My family and I have really been enjoying walking the Quivira Trails. What a great amenity for the Lake. We can get out and enjoy the natural beauty of our community. I have been living at the Lake for fifty years, and I believe that the trails are one of the most enjoyable and pleasant features that has been developed.
I want to express my sincere appreciation to the members who obviously put in a lot of hours of hard work designing and clearing the trails.
I can’t help but compare these great additions, which cost us nothing, to adding expensive structures which will cost the membership a significant amount of money and will detract from the natural beauty of the property. The trails were by far the best addition.
~Frank Brown

Golfer waxes poetic over Blue Flag privileges

Due to some interim health issues I have qualified to use a golf cart blue flag to allow me to be on the fairways instead of being restrained to the golf cart paths. I have enjoyed saving the steps to allow me to continue to play. In fact, I have enjoyed the Blue Flag privilege so much that I am enclosing this “Ode to the Blue Flag.”
~Bob Lee

Ode to the Blue Golf Course Flag

Oh how I love my blue flag!
On the golf course it’s a reason to brag;
I can drive with freedom, no concern for direction!
Simply drive to the ball!
Second shot over,”let’s move on Rover,”
No steps to be taken at all!
When we get to the green
I can get closer it seems!
Having the privilege of Old Blue
We can usually play through!
Old Blue and I make up a twosome,
We can usually play through some,
No one seems to care.
Looking forward to the season
Which seems overdue,
I’ll appreciate it with joy,
As long as I have Old Blue!
