Treasurer change over at the bank:  Josh Garrison will take over the treasurer duties. The week of August 5th, Josh and Justin will go over the receipts from the snack stand and summer playground.

Proposed for safety purposes putting a chain across the drive path behind the Rec Pavilion.  As seen on the video footage, teenagers have been driving on the path and parking on the basketball courts at night.  To be proactive and keep the future courts from being damaged a chain would be a deterrent.
