Financial Report/Old Business – reviewed treasurer’s report briefly, Cary was not in attendance for more detail.
- County Chipping reimbursement has been received. Need to wait until Cary is back from vacation to put in bank and distribute funds.
- Review of last years budget
o Rock Lake restoration
§ Members assuming about 25% successful with reseeding effort. Many “weed” species that came up this summer will have to be looked at for mitigation once more grass takes hold.
o Fish Stocking
§ Will need to do analysis of lake levels in the spring prior to allocating fish stocking money.

Membership Report – not officially reviewed since treasurer was not present, but membership is currently low.
- Margie will create and issue fishing passes to members of the association.
- Discussion on installing playground equipment on the common lands and how to increase membership led to creation of the Community Relations committee.
o Gayle Rose and Dee Huntley are co-chairs.

§ Creation of a community “socializing area” that could include playground equipment, gazebo or other amenities. Implications such as insurance cost, maintenance, etc will be discussed at follow on committee meetings.
§ “Welcome Basket” for new neighbors, contents to include information on the Association, local businesses, utilities information, school information, resident’s information (if they desire to share it) etc.
