 President’s Report (John J. Gianoni):

  • I called Dave for the key to the box on the green, for the water timer. He did not have it, so the lock needs to be cut off and replaced.

  • Penny Critchley, who was handling the process of getting bids on maintaining the green, came back to membership with 6 quotes. Membership voted and Dukes Lawn Maintenance won the vote. Penny will proceed with them. Great job Penny!

 

City Village Report:

      Leo Bonola, First Deputy: – (a) Thank you to all the people in the past that ran and helped out at the Forestville Village Golf Tournament. (b) Leo had a picture of the WWII boards to show everyone and it was put on hold.

The city is restarting work on the rope course.
