Minutes | April 20, 2018
21 people attended this week’s meeting and we’d like to thank you all for getting involved, even a little bit, or even if you just come to listen! These meetings are fun and informative, AND THEY ONLY LAST ONE HOUR, GUARANTEED!!!!
When folks complain or make suggestions about the banner choices, or venues for events, or anything else the TLBA does for the community, the way your voice will be heard is if you take an hour out of your month and attend a meeting. We’re all busy, but the free coffee & donuts are great and it’s a very low key and enjoyable way to keep up with events & help out our communities!
Banners for Town Poles: Orders are coming in fast and if you want a banner send Cindy your choice and then get your design/logo to Garnet signs with check to Garnet signs for $160.50 to ensure your banner is completed and can be up by Memorial Day. We have +/- 50 orders in so far for all 4 towns. The Red Chair is currently unavailable in Brant Lake, Adirondack & Chestertown as the ‘first come, first serve’ promoted a lot of requests for those and not as many as the others…. The purpose of these banners is to ‘dress up’ our towns, show people what is available regarding recreational opportunities (this ‘theme’ was decided/agreed upon by both towns and the TLBA committee) and your purchase shows your support for the community.
Horicon Banner Holder: Committee will be meeting with Horicon officials to determine placement of a Town ‘Bulletin Board’ to be installed across from the lower dam to advertise events, in lieu of hanging banners on the bridge.
