Pass It On: If you find this newsletter of value, please pass it on to your friends and neighbors.
New Bylaws Proposed 
~~~~~~~~~~
The GMVA Board met on April 28 to review the bylaws that were last revised in 2006.  A final version of the 2009 revised bylaws will be voted upon at the May 18th GMVA meeting and then be posted on our Web site. 
Learn About Your Village Association 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Grogan's Mill Village Association participates year round in many different activities that affect not only our neighborhoods, but all of The Woodlands and surrounding communities.  We are always looking for a "few good men"......and women!!! to assist us for the various projects that can help make our neighborhoods a better place to live and enjoy our lovely surroundings even more. 
 
The GMVA will be hosting an informal reception on Thursday, June 11th from 5 to 7 PM for all of the residents of Grogan's Mill that would like to participate once-in-a-while or on specific projects, but aren't ready to dive in to full time board membership.  Find out what your Village Association is all about and learn how you can plug-in to what interests you most.  Specifics for this get-together will be posted on the Web site as it gets closer.  Refreshments will be served.
Riva Row Boat House
~~~~~~~~~~
The Riva Row Boat House is now open. Take a kayak for a spin, learn tips during a kayak lesson, and enjoy music, refreshments and activities for the entire family along the beautiful waterway! The Boat House offers kayaks for use on The Woodlands Waterway and Lake Woodlands. Single and tandem kayaks, along with paddles and lifejackets, are provided by Orvis and will be available to rent for $15 an hour and $5 for the second hour, or $35 for a full day.

Riva Row Park and Boat House are located at 2101 Riva Row, directly across the waterway from Town Green Park. For more information, please call the Community Associations of The Woodlands, Parks and Recreation Department, at 281.210.3900.
Cleaning up after Hurricane Ike
~~~~~~~~~~
The Natural Resources Conservation Service will be managing a clean-up project that will help to clean up the storm debris that has accumulated in the Bear Branch and Panther Branch flowage easements.  The project is expected to begin soon and proceed rapidly.  The clean-up will be environmentally friendly and is likely to be noisy.  For additional information, contact the San Jacinto River Authority office at 936.588.1111 or visit www.sjra.net or www.wjpa.org.
Join Us this Saturday at the Farmer's Market
~~~~~~~~~~
The Farmer's market continues through the end of June, Saturday mornings from 8 till noon. There are fresh vegetables, eggs, beef, pork, chicken, and yougurt.  Come and visit and then support your local stores. 
Do you want a lighted ball field in Grogan's Mill? How about a dog park?
~~~~~~~~~~
Sally Johnson is the GMVA representative to the Parks and Recreation Department. The Parks and Rec department is looking to light some ball fields with timed lights that would be turned on remotely for scheduled games.  None of the parks in GM is scheduled to receive lights.  Would you like to see a lighted park in either Sawmill or Grogan's Point?  
 
Sally is also trying to determine if there is interest in a dog park for GM.  It would most likely be in Tamarac Park. 
 
Please let Sally Johnson, stargypsy@earthlink.net, know so she can work with Parks and Rec to make it happen.
May Yard of the Month Winner Announced

May 2009 Yard of the MonthSue & Russell Knighton 
We have lived here for 27 years. We mowed, edged, pruned, took care of brown patch and other infestations; however as time went on we had to change. When the trees got bigger and the roots took over we had to plant upward so we had a couple of tons of rock put in, 10 yards compost. Now we have Holly Fern, Agapanthus, butterfly bushes, fern berry, Split leaf philandern, and monkey grass for our border. Thank you for this honor, we will display our Yard of the Month sign with pride.

Yard picked by Franklin Palmer & Jim Upham.
