Use of Cottages at Indian Springs
Dear Cottage Holders:
Due to the increasing popularity of Indian Springs Holiness Camp Meeting, we have a number of people who are interested in acquiring a place on the grounds. There is currently a shortage of places available for those who wish to stay on the grounds and attend services. It is the desire of the Board of Trustees, through the Cottage Holders Committee, to encourage the use of cottages by enforcement of the Lease Agreement signed by all Cottage Holders.
Article 8 of the Cottage Lease agreement states: “Cottage Holder shall primarily utilize the lot and cottage for attendance during the annual camp meeting held on the Camp Ground. It is understood by Cottage Holder that the primary purpose of this Lease is to encourage attendance by Cottage Holder and the relatives and guests of Cottage Holder at camp meeting. Failure by Cottage Holder to utilize Lot and cottage for this primary purpose shall constitute a default of this lease. ”
Article 16 states: “Upon default in the terms of this Lease by Cottage Holder as set forth herein, the Board of Trustees of the Campground may terminate this Lease, and Cottage Holder must either transfer title of cottage located on the Lot to a new Cottage Holder approved by the Board of Trustees of the Campground, or sell the cottage to the Campground at a fair market price.
If you are no longer able to attend Indian Springs and use your cottage as stated above, please contact Ken Banter, firstname.lastname@example.org, (478) 960-2255, so he can work with you to resolve this matter.
Cottage Holders Committee: Dr. Ken Banter, Chairman; Hon. Ken Vinson and Dr. Ben Lane
