Candidates for GMVA Board Positions 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
In this election, eight new members of the Grogan's Mill Village board will be chosen. Current Board members who are running for re-election are Donna Gosset, Joe Giovanniello, Dana Denton, Virginia Dellinger, and Pat Goodpastor.  You can read about these Board members on our Web site
 
Jennifer Morton is a candidate on the ballot.  She was born and raised primarily in the Spring-area.  Mrs. Morton is a graduate of the University of Houston.  She has been married for six years to her high-school sweetheart and is the mother of twin three-year-old boys.  She and her husband bought a home in Sunset Springs in November 2002.  Mrs. Morton hopes to meet more people and server her community by becoming involved in the GMVA.
 
Chris Wren wants to be a write-in candidate.  You will not see his name on the ballot.  So if you want to vote for him, you will need to write his name on your ballot.  Chris Wren is Executive Vice President for LGI Development and a graduate of Stephen F. Austin University.
Noise Wall Update
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Ten contiguous homes on North Deerfoot Circle have signed easements in November that would allow the noise wall to be built on their property. Approval still needs to come from The Woodlands Development Company who has the easements. The Woodlands Development Company has asked that Precinct 3 Commissioner Ed Chance to approve the wall before they sign.  Mr. Chance says his attorneys are looking at the document.  We are becoming concerned about the way our request is being bounced around bureaucratically from one organization to the next. 
Farmer's Market is Coming to GMV
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The GMVA is excited to bring the Farmer's Market, formerly held at Market Street, to the Grogan's Mill Shopping Center beginning the morning of Saturday, April 12th and running through June, 2008.  The market will be in operation from 8 AM until 12 Noon every Saturday.  Convenient close-by parking will be available for the patrons of the market.  We are still seeking a few more produce growers, so please check the information and applications forms available at our Web site if you are interested in participating.
GMVA Volunteer of the Year Announced 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jim Upham, one of our Area Representatives, was honored as the GMVA Volunteer of 2007.  Jim has been ever-vigilant in his leadership effort to have a sound wall built along I-45 behind the homes in the Glen Mill subdivision that border the highway.   Many long hours of knocking on homeowners' doors, getting releases signed by the residents, corresponding with the WCA Directors and staff, as well as the TxDot contacts, and much, much more, have gone into Jim's multi-year pursuit of this project.   While still not a reality, Jim's effort has been truly heroic.  Congratulations, Jim!
Holiday Lighting Contest Winners
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Holiday Lighting Contest was a wonderful experience again as the GMVA members judged individual homes and entire neighborhoods in our community.  The 2007 winning home in Grogan's Mill was the Hargrove home on N. Red Cedar Circle  and the neighborhood was Timber Mill off of Grogan's Mill Road.  Gift certificates to merchants at the Grogan's Mill Village Center have been awarded to our winners.  Congratulations to our winners and a big thank you from your GMVA Board to all of this year's participants!
GMVA Board Retreat in March
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The GMVA holds an annual Board Retreat to discuss projects and programs for our upcoming fiscal year, as well as determining our budget for these projects.  This year's retreat is scheduled for Saturday, March 8th.  If you have ideas for projects that you think would benefit our village, please contact one of our Board members.
