PLEASE slow down and keep an eye out for children, animals and parents. It’s a neighborhood, not a racetrack! Thank you!
Annual Fishing Derby – May 15, 2021
We would like to thank all the volunteers who helped setting up, running, and taking down the Fishing Derby. This year we had a nice crowd of about fifty people.
As we do each year, there were contests for different size of fish. This year’s winners were:
Issaac who landed a 2.67 pound fish
Second Largest Fish:
Jackson with a 2.22 pound fish
Jackson pulled a 0.14 pound fish
Tanner with a total of 4.66 pounds
We had seven community members show up on 8/28 to help install three of our new signs. Missing from the picture is Ed who took the photos.
Due to damage and wear on some of the playground equipment at Pete Rix Park, we had to close them down until such time as it can be repaired. Please keep children off of the tagged items until the caution tape is removed. The safety of our children is very important to LOTW.
August 12th, in the morning, we will be adding chlorine into the water for purification purposes. It’s still safe to drink but you may notice a higher smell/taste of chlorine for about a day.
On August 15th an emergency water shut down off of 138th happened due to a break in the line. Our VP Maintenance is on this project and it will be handled shortly.
We all love our animals but we do need to think outside the box sometimes to do what’s best for them.
When walking your dog during the summer take a moment, walk outside, put your hand on the road or sidewalk. If you can’t keep it there, comfortably, for at minimum 10 seconds, it’s too hot for your dogs paws. They can burn just like we would if we walked barefoot. Look for every opportunity to walk them in the grass when it’s available.
If you take them with you anywhere in the summer, inside a vehicle, make sure you bring along plenty of water and always try to park them in the shade and NEVER…EVER leave them with the windows rolled up. If you can’t be sure about these three precautions you should probably leave them at home. Better to have a temporarily upset dog who’s alive and all your windows intact then give in to the disappointment.
Below is a helpful and informative article in caring for your dog during the summer:
If you have vehicles/trailer/campers that you do not want but are not sure how to get rid of them, here are some options to have these removed from your property without cost to you. You must have the title to each vehicle you want towed away. Check out the possible resources below:
