Reminder to Pet Owners 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Pet Owners:  We recently received a report from a Grogan's Mill resident that coyotes killed two pet cats, one in her front yard and the other in her neighbor's yard.  Please do not leave your pets outside at night.
The Woodlands Under Mandatory Water Restrictions
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
As of June 29, 2009, mandatory water restrictions have been initiated by The Woodlands Joint Powers Agency.  "Due to continued extreme hot and dry weather and unprecedented water demand, we have initiated Stage 3 of our MUDs' Water Conservation and Drought Contingency Plan. This is a MANDATORY WATER RESTRICTION NOTICE that limits outdoor irrigation to no more than two days per week and no more than a total of one inch of potable water applied per week," said Stinson, P.E., general manager of The WJPA.
Fireworks Prohibited in The Woodlands
~~~~~~~~~~
The Woodlands Fire Department reminds all residents of our community NOT to use home fireworks during the upcoming Fourth of July holiday. The Woodlands Covenants strictly prohibit the sale or use of fireworks and sparklers of any kind in The Woodlands.
 
The traditional 9pm fireworks display on the fourth will continue, since it is monitored by the fire department and run by professionals.  The best place to watch will be along the waterway.  If you want to avoid the traffic and crowds you can watch from Lamar school or Tamarac Park.
Fourth of July in The Woodlands 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Woodlands is a great place to celebrate Independence Day with fun events such as: Star Spangled Salute, 4th of July Parade, Splash Days at community pools, Concert in The Park, Red, Hot and Blue Festival and Fireworks Extravaganza.
GMVA Wine and Cheese Party a Delightful Evening
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
 
On a  recent warm Thursday evening the GMVA hosted a wine and cheese party at the  Grogan's Mill Shopping Center to encourage people in the community to participate in its activities.  More than 30 people attended for some lively conversation with the GMVA board members as well as getting to know their neighbors.  The GMVA has tentative plans to hold another get-together for our residents this Fall.  Look for date and place details in upcoming issues of this newsletter and The Woodlands Community Magazine. 
Concert-in-the-Park Summer Series 
~~~~~~~~~~
Concert-in-the-Park Summer Series - June 7 through July 5, Sunday evenings from 7 to 9 p.m. Northshore Park, located at 2505 Lake Woodlands Drive. Concerts are free and open to the public.
See the schedule for this and other events on the GMVA Web site.
The Beverage Shoppe 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Beverage Shoppe has partnered with TerraCycle to recycle corks.  For every cork collected, TerraCycle will donate 2-cents to YTAC (Young Texans Against Cancer), a local cancer research firm in the Houston-area.  Not only do you help raise money for a good cause, but the cork will be recycled into other useful products.  Look for the cork bins in The Beverage Shoppe.
 
Visit The Beverage Shoppe in the Grogan's Mill Village shopping center: "We Keep Your Summer Fun In Good Spirits".
Your Comcast Bill
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Readers have asked about the 1,000% increases in their access fee on their Comcast bill. Fees that were less than a dollar increased to more than eight dollars. We checked with Comcast and found that they had made a mistake in their billing. While the issue is not totally clear, it appears that Comcast did not bill customers correctly after January 1, when payments started going to the Township.  If you know anything more, please let us know.
