PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN: This year’s bazaar has, once again, been a big
success. It is due to the participation of the organizers, volunteers and contributors that this
continues to be the main fund raiser for the Recreation Association. Congratulations to all
those that helped out.
There has been some interest shown in some of our residents obtaining a palm tree for their
front yard. A sign-up sheet was put up some time ago but had no signees. If you are
interested in a tree please notify Rhonda at the office.
The First Street fence committee and the kitchen committee continue to do their homework -
updated reports will be made at our Board meeting.

TREASURER’S REPORT – NORM KURTZ:  I would like to thank our Board of Directors for
appointing me to be your Treasurer.  I will do my best to uphold their trust.  Also, please feel
free to contact me with any and all questions you may have.
The 2017 year- end financial report is yet to be finalized, but indications are that we will end
the year well.  Income was on budget, and expenses were under budget.  We did have the
major expense of resurfacing the roadway, but that was a budgeted expense which also
came in under budget.
If you have any questions or would like to see the full financial report, please see Rhonda in
the Association office or contact me.
