POA’s Anderson to address Squires & Stags Aug. 4

By Bennett Whipple

“Six major issues facing Big Canoe” will be the subject of Phil Anderson’s talk at the Aug. 4 meeting of Squires & Stags. He is president of the POA Board and noted for his communication skills including his succinct and comprehensive monthly reports to Smoke Signals and Inside the Gates.

His talk will cover Big Canoe’s internet problem and the “Fiber-to-the-Home” proposed solution, the status of the water situation, the Troon management option, progress on the new firehouse, the Land Use Task Force report and its recommendations and, of course, the operation of the clubhouse.

His talk will include time for questions and answers.

Anderson, as they say, “knows the territory.” After completing Leadership Big Canoe, he served the Home Owners Association (HOA) in various capacities, including president, leading to the merger with the POA. He was elected to the POA board in December, 2015, and is serving his second year.

He is also an experienced operating officer serving as the COO for an engineering firm and as county manager for Dawson County.

Anderson also took on the job as a committee chairman for Pickens County, resulting in voters adopting a three-person board of commissioners versus a sole commissioner. He also served on the county’s planning commission for three years.

Anderson is a graduate of Virginia Military Institute (VMI) with a civil engineering degree. Before moving to Big Canoe, he served in the Army for 31 years retiring as a major general.

Squires & Stags meets in the Mountains Grille room at The Clubhouse at Lake Sconti. Coffee is ready at 7:45 a.m. followed by a buffet breakfast served at 8:00 a.m. Big Canoe residents and guests are invited to attend the meeting. The price of breakfast is $13 payable on your POA account or by   cash at the door.

Reservations are required and must be received by noon on the Thursday before the Friday morning meeting. For online reservation links, watch for the POA “Happenings & Events” e-blast and the Tuesday Smoke Signals e-blast, both issued weekly.

Use of the online reservation system is encouraged, but if it’s not available you may call Kim Cooper at (706) 268-1115 to make reservations.
