someone to take care of your weeds and maintain your home during the summer. Be sure to
return that sheet to the office before leaving for the summer. If you are renting your home for
2019, turn in the papers to the office showing who is renting. They must get a background

the last 3 years, the background check is not necessary. The Annual meeting will be held
March 15, 2018. Social time starts at 6:30 and the meeting at 7:00, hope to see you there.

was more than last year). This money goes into the Recreation Board’s treasury to help fund
other fun actives in our park. This was Rose and my last year to do the Craft Fair. Please
