Lend a Hand – Vickie reported that Lend a Hand has a new director, Patricia Gehlen. They are looking for a new location for their fundraising garage sales to be held.
It has been suggested that we put a post with a grocery bag holder on the far end of the park so people will pick up their dogs poops. It was decided that this was a good idea and we would call Manny from the parks to ask if we can do it.
Ann suggested that maybe we should put on an agility/dog show at the park in the future. This was received as a interesting idea to research
