Volunteers Needed for Flea Market
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The spring flea market will be held in April. A large part of our funding comes from the money we received for volunteering to help run it. The money from this is used to fund our scholarships for GM students. Please consider volunteering. It can be a lot of fun!


GMVA Volunteer of the Year
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Bruce Cunningham was given the Volunteer of the Year award by the GMVA. We all appreciate the time and effort that Bruce has put into our community.


New Apartments on Sawdust Road - Lake Wyndemere Apartments
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Some of you have asked about the sign on Sawdust Road, between Grogan's Point Road and S. Millbend, announcing a public hearing on January 18th in Houston regarding a re-platting of this property. There is a new apartment complex planned for this site which we understand to be about 360 units. The reason for the hearing is that the land is in Houston's ETJ and had been zoned for single family homes. It will be a pro-forma meeting from what we understand. There are no hearings planned for Montgomery County.


The GM shopping Center Unveils Web Site
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The GM shopping center has developed a new Web site at
http://www.grogansmillcenter.com. The Webmaster, Nick Ransford, invites you to stop in and take a look.


Glen Mill Noise Wall
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
TxDOT is still waiting to hear from a couple of people before deciding if they will build a shortened noise wall. Most of the homes from 82 Deerfoot to 136 Deerfoot have indicated that they would like the wall. We will keep you posted.


Sewer Relining on North Millbend
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
For most of December their was a less than pleasant odor on North Millbend near Crossvine. It was caused by the relining of the sanitary sewer by the San Jacinto River Authority, which are told has been finished.


Be Aware of Potential Carbon Monoxide Dangers
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In the U.S., an estimated 15,000-40,000 people (not including fire victims) are treated for CO poisoning each year, and approximately 500 die. The single most common source of exposure: faulty furnaces.

Carbon monoxide (CO) is an odorless, colorless gas found in combustion fumes such as those produced by cars, trucks, stoves, gas ranges, and heating systems. It can build up inside enclosed or semi- enclosed spaces such as homes and garages and people and animals can become ill or die by breathing it. It is no surprise then that more carbon monoxide exposures and poisonings occur during the fall and winter months. But there is plenty you can do to reduce the risk. To find out details and how to protect yourself and your family visit our Web site.
