Sandy Williamson is working on an appropriate size banner to put on the back of your golf cart to promote the Pet Club.  More information in January.

Mike Bandrowski expressed concern over the use of the dog park at night and the amount of dog poo left in the park.  One option is to lock the gate at dusk, so no one can go in if people continue to NOT pick up after their pets after dark.  Tammy Gatenby will check with Happy Trails for options for lights at night. 

Sandy Williamson suggested a cedar wood and sage spray for urine on the poles and fence to reduce the odor.  It will be made available at the dog park and used on a trial basis.

This month’s door prize were won by Kathy Sedy and Debbie Heim.

Meeting adjourned.
