Market Concludes the Spring Season
The Grogan's Mill Village Association thanks
all of the loyal supporters of our first Grogan's
Mill Farmer's Market that just concluded the Spring
We will be returning in the Fall, in our same location,
starting on Saturday, October 4th and running for
the next 10 weeks, ending on Saturday, December 6th.
Hours will remain 8 AM to 12 Noon.
We are very interested in any comments, testimonials,
and suggestions that you would like to make regarding
the Farmer's Market. In our efforts to grow
our market we may be seeking additional funding and
would appreciate your permission to reproduce your
comments in our presentation packet for funding.
If you do agree to the use of your comments, please
indicate if you would allow the use of your full name,
or would prefer that we use your first name only. Please
send your comments to email@example.com
Again, we appreciate all of you coming out to
our initial Farmer's Market and look forward
to seeing you again in the Fall.
an Astros Game with the GMVA
On Saturday, September 13, GMVA along with other
Village Associations, will be providing a bus to take
GMV residents to the Astro's night game (6pm)
against the Chicago Cubs. Tickets are priced
at $13; the bus is free. This year the GMV bus will
be shared with Panther Creek Village and will leave
from the Panther Creek Village Center at 4:30 pm.
Because we will only have 28 tickets available they
will go fast. Contact Joe Giovanniello at (281)
363-2698 to get your tickets.
Your Cul-de-sac an Orphan?
In Grogan's Mill we have over 200 cul-de-sacs. A
few of them are known as super cul-de-sacs, which are
generally found at the entrance to subdivisions and
are maintained by the Community Association from your
assessment dollars. The vast majority, such as
those found at the end of streets, have been deeded
to the county as part of the right-of-way, and are not
maintained unless it is by the home owners on the street.
While some of these cul-de-sacs are well maintained
most are neglected and do nothing to improve home values
- these are the ORPHANS.
The Grogan's Mill Village Association is asking
residents to take action and get involved in long-term cul-de-sacs maintenance
programs. The association is establishing a Cul-de-sacs Revitalization contest
which will start this year and culminate in 2009. A
prize will be awarded to the winning cul-de-sacs.
In the near future an application and guidelines for
the contest will be posted on the GMVA website: www.grogansmillvillage.com.
If you have any ideas for this project please submit
them by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or
submit them by mail to GMVA, PO Box 7522, The Woodlands,
GMVA would like to compile a list of infrastructure
problems in Grogan's Mill.
We need your eyes and ears to help us, though.
If you see something broken in your neighborhood, such
as a broken curb, broken sign, broken mailbox, etc.,
please contact any Board
member or write to us at email@example.com.
You will be helping out your entire village with just
a few sentences.
If you tried last week to send a message to
the suggestions box, we had some e-mail problems and
most likely did not receive it. We ask you to
please resend this week. The e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org is
