Allen reported that Mike Johnson is hopeful that the permit for treating Fairview Lake will be granted this coming week, barring further delay.

One past-due boater has paid his dues for last year and this year.

BLIA Report. No report direct from BLIA.

Tom Burns – Road and Parks Commissioner
Discussed new basketball rim, and the fact we already need to replace the one hung recently. We’ll need a spring-loaded rim that will be able to survive our budding NBA Allstars and their rim-hanging dunks. Tom asked about the lake level, as he has a load of river rock to put on the shore of the park area. Tom noted that there’s a new dog in town, and his people aren’t cleaning up after him. Please clean up after your furry friends! Erika will be replacing the plants. Tom would like to organize a plant swap.

Bettianne Goetz – Membership
No report. Roger asked whether or not we should do a second notice for dues. The board agreed that an e-mail notice to those who have paid previously, but not paid this year, would be appropriate.

Social Committee – Erika Teyema
The first “Second Friday Frolic” is coming up on May 11th from 7-9 p.m. at the Keast residence. Roger reminded the board that sign-ups are needed. Everyone is asked to bring-your-own-bottle, glasses and a snack to share. The next Friday Frolic is June 8th, and the Pancake Breakfast on June 23rd. Erika has been speaking with Bettianne about coming up with an idea for invitations to join the association. Just a reminder that everyone is invited to join the Association’s list-serve on the web site, which gives everyone news as it’s posted on the web site. Roger has offered to send everyone an e-mail to remind them that there is a web site that people can join. Allen suggested that a flyer go out with all of the events listed, so that those who didn’t attend the annual meeting will have that available. Erika suggested that Roger attach that to his membership dues reminder. Erika reported on a “Movie in the Park,” and will be working with Tom to pick a date.
