PRESIDENT’S REPORT – DOUG GEEN:  
Our Annual General Meeting is fast approaching. It is being held on Thursday, March 21st at 7:
00 p.m. in our Clubhouse. I hope all shareholders can attend. If you are unable to attend,
please send or turn in your proxy to the Office.   In January of this year the Board voted to
increase the share value from $35,000.00 to $40,000.00. As of March 1 this came into effect.   
Please be advised that Internet service is no longer being offered at the Clubhouse. Due to
some technical changes the cost was becoming too high to justify continuing this service.
As most of you know we always have a Workshop on the Wednesday preceding our regular
Board meetings. Please note that it is at these Workshops that discussions take place
regarding Park ideas or concerns. Our Monday meetings are to ratify Workshop matters and
are not meant to be an open forum.
