Hi Folks: Our bulletin board really needs a “sprucing up”! I spent yesterday drawing up a plan and shopping for materials. I got everything we need for the boards themselves (one board for each the large dog and the small dog side) including primer and paints. If you look below you’ll see my revised plan. The original included a hinged & framed Plexiglas door with sash lock but the cost was too high so I did away with the door.
I’ve done this on my own dime as a donation to the park but … I could use some help getting it all put together. I’ll pre-assemble and paint the boards at home. However, the 4 X 4 posts that they attach to need a bit of sanding so they can be primed and painted. If you can bring some sandpaper and help sand the 4 X 4’s while you’re at the park with your pooch, that would be a big help. Additionally, I’m likely to need some help (especially muscle-wise) to take down the old 4 X 4 OBS (plywood) sheets and hang the new ones (once I have them ready). I hope to have this project finished within a couple of weeks.

To the person who trimmed the tree I like to park under… Thank you! Thank you for doing the hard part – - remembering to bring the cutters. (lol) I saw that you ran out of steam so I finished cleaning up the trimmings. I ran out of room in the dumpster and filled the smaller trash can but, then I too ran out of steam. I went home and got some lawn trash bags and left them in the zip lock bag tacked to the bulletin board should someone want to pick up where I left off. If the smaller trash can needs emptying for use in weed pulling I’m hoping someone will use the bags I left. I don’t know when the trash runs at the park but we now have a full dumpster and can. Amazing how fast it adds up. ☺
I also tacked up some more Chili’s flyers. I’ll try to bring some more tomorrow which is the last day for the “Give Back” event. Please help us raise money and have a great meal while your at it. I’m told we’re within a couple hundred dollars of being able to have a new fence put in for the training area. Let’s try to get that done. Whether it be through donations, the Chili’s Give Back, new or renewed membership fees or even saving money by mowing the park ourselves rather than paying to have it done. There’s a lot that needs to be done at the park. But, if all of us help just a little, we can get a lot done.
