Another reminder of the new flag system: Yellow flag: No wake policy; Red Flag: No swimming & stay out of lake; Green Flag: All is okay.

Terry Schulz: The speed bumps to be painted soon. The storage room to hold Interlachen, Inc. files from previous years is now completed.

Jerry Larsen, Carl Marking, & Terry Schulz deserves a big thank you and a loud round of applause. As do all of the others, who aren’t named at this time, for keeping Interlachen, Inc. running.

Bettiane Goetz: The August 25 picnic was a huge success in spite of the heat. Thank you to Sherri Barnett, Diana Gould, Pam Trask, Laura Davies, Judy Hood, & Jean McLemore. Special thanks to the Gould’s for the great salmon & Laura Davies for all of the wonderful art work.

New business: (1) Bev Knight brought up the problem on the road of skunks, rats, & raccoons. (One of Shelley’s two dogs was sprayed by a skunk just yesterday, ugh, what an awful smell ) Bev has had Critter Gitters trap a skunk that was on her property. Critter Gitters told Bev they have been out to many homes on Interlachen and there is a real problem out here. Everyone needs to help and be responsible about not attracting any of these creatures by not leaving bird seed or any other food out. (2) A discussion was held regarding the possibility of hiring a caretaker for Interlachen, Inc. More discussion will be held on this matter. In the meantime Lance made a motion to write up a job description. It was seconded and approved.

Dennis Meyer will head up the nominating committee to recruit volunteers for Interlachen, Inc. board members for year 2005/2006. Three vacancies will need to be filled. Bob Hood, Shelley Oleachea-Caufield, & Jason McGowan will be departing as board members. Please get involved, being on the board is a great way meet new people and be the first to know what is happening in your community. If you want to volunteer contact Dennis at 503 661-2461.

Lance Pattock: We all need to be more aware of activity on the lake. He saved a 13-year-old boy last week who jumped off of a paddle boat into the lake and could not swim. Way to go Lance
