Master Gardener @ Womens club meet Wed evening*****

Hi yall, enjoying 2 days of snow? Not sticking much, still, is this really April. Well, the nature rule is 3 snows after the dogwoods bloom. I have not yet seen a bloomin' dogwood, so hang in there.
Who: Lynn Sorenson, Master Gardener
What: Her speech will be about plants/soils for a Fire-Wise Community.
Q & A will follow afterwards
When: Wednesday, April 25 at 7:00-8:30pm
Where: Firehouse
The Womens Club is extending an invite to all residents for the above. Bring a treat to share if you wish. It's always a challenge growing anything other than natural landscaping here, and you certainly don't want to increase the fire danger on your property, so this would be a great opportunity for those ready to face the challenge!
So many for sale and seemingly abandoned properties here, and in all parts of the county I suppose. I am becoming concerned about the amount of downed/dead trees on these properties that seem to have no caretakers at this time. Hope to bring it up at the annual meeting. How about you? Do you have a property adjacent to yours that looks like it could use some firewise attention? Obviously it's not a problem at this very wet moment, but this summer things could get dicey. The Homeowners Assn. has been helpful in the past to notify property owners (if you can identify) that their lot needs attention. Hoping they can be of assistance in these challenging times with property being in limbo . . . . .Any ideas?????? Is there any way to have the banks that are holding title adhere to fire safety guidelines?

HOMEOWNERS ASSN annual meeting this Sat

Hoping you can come to the Firehouse this Sat. 1-3PM for the annual open meeting. This is your opportunity to discuss issues, or give the Board a pat on the back for a year of volunteer service. Also, bring your membership fee, which helps them help YOU get that great Surburban Propane discount in addition to supporting Lost Mine Lake and newsletter mailings, among other things. I think they are confirming this years board also. I'm guessing there are snacks and beverages, and the chance to mingle with some neighbors, so why the heck not! Hope to see you there.
A nice (new) neighbor came into the shelter looking for his lost kitty. He just moved into a home on Gas Canyon by BQH, and he said his kitty just disappeared. It was a cat he adopted from the Plains of Iowa, so he's hoping the cat is "wild" wise. If you see a spare kitty around, he is the 3rd house on the right when you go down Gas Canyon. I think there are posters out there.
Lots of rain due this week, but spring is around the corner. All the daffs are blooming in town, and ours are showing their sunny little faces on the hill. Such a great time of year. Can't wait to feel warm air again. This was a long winter ya'll.
