Rose Klein purchased 2 cases of bottled water and will purchase 168 Ball Park hot dogs and buns and 200 assorted individual bags of chips. Myrna Coleman already paid $25 to reserve the pool for the down payment. Keegan Melcher will be working out of town so will not be able to help with the Pool Party.

Webmaster Jennifer Hellwege will put up the garage sale listings on our website. After the fall garage sales Goodwill will set up on Saturday from 3-6 for people’s excess garage sale donations.

We have had requests for information from Highland’s residents on who to contact for information because Allo is putting in underground wire in people’s yards. We gave out the phone number that is listed on their signs.

Kris Meek has attempted to contact the owner of Down the Hatch bar regarding her interest in co-hosting a Block Party next year, but the owner is on vacation and is not easy to reach.

We have been considering whether we need to have a December newsletter since we are not having a Lighting Contest in the future. Myrna said that she will see if Christy Dionospholous of Parks and Rec. will come to the September meeting. (We do not have a meeting in August.)

We adjourned at 8:50 pm. The next meeting is Monday, Sept. 18 at 7:30 pm at the Fire Hall.
