After discussion it was determined that Keith would look at getting th fence put up and the dog park committee would keep fundraising to pay for the fence which Keith has already purchased with his own money. The ladies mentioned that they could have raised more in their opinion if they were allowed to use the Lion’s Pavillion. There was discussion about how the Lion’s Club should allow other’s to use the pavilion considering they aren’t paying for mowing or water testing of the Lion’s Pool. The Ladies also wanted to thank Jerry Woodard for all the help with the cart and making sure that they had everything that they needed.
