Lee forked out the $$$ to get the ball rolling. The 501c3 is in the process of being applied for and a meeting will be held Sunday 08/12 (this coming Sunday) at 3:00 PM. The meeting will be held at the Legion this time and it looks like there will be a vote to elect the Board of Trustees. I sure hope who ever is elected can do a lot better than the Ranch board!
If you care to join us as a volunteer or want to throw your hat in the ring to be on the board or even the chairman (president) please come to the meeting. We were told that Lee can't run for any board position, but I could. I'm not in to that type of politics so will bow out on that. We have our first functional firetruck (thanks to Lee), but we find that the fire station will have to be upgraded some.
I checked in to the 911 address for the station (Not knowing whether the owner or previous owner had already done it and fortunately it turned out that one of them had so we do have an address for it.) One more step out of the way.
Like I said if you want to sign up to be a member or to run for the board please show up.
*** Update ***
I just got off the phone talking to the owner of the building which will be the fire station and got the go ahead to request the actual mailing address for the station and to put it under the Big Bend Valley Volunteer Fire Department. The owner is A. G. Hays and he's a great guy! He has also given us the Ok to get a phone put in and to build a small office in it. He says he will add a septic system and get it ready for a restroom to be added. Looks like things are moving right along.
Only other news around here is that I went out to the cabin about 10:00 last night to get a soda and it was sprinkling. Nothing shown in the gage though. Sure would be nice to have a good rain to see how the pond does.
