Crime in Grogan's Mill Village
At the GMVA meeting on July 20th, Sgt. Fitzgerald
of the Sheriff's office reported on criminal
activity in The Woodlands. While limited, it does
exist and you should be careful in where you go
and what you do. In Grogan's Mill most
of the problems relate to teenagers who seek out
cars that are unlocked and who look for open garage
doors knowing that there is often beer or wine stored
in that outside garage. Don't tempt them. Grogan's
Mill is Woodlands Zone 1.
Village Liaison Plans Fall Activities
Each village in The Woodlands has a liaison
who interacts with the village associations
and works to develop the Woodlands Watch program.
Our liaison for the past three years has
been Anne Spaulding who has worked diligently
to improve what goes on in the village. Anne has
been reassigned to work with the Village
of Sterling Ridge, which is experiencing
extreme growth, in the same capacity as
their village liaison. She is being
replaced in Grogan's Mill by Lachelle
Gentry who was introduced at the GMVA July
20th meeting. We look forward to working
with Lachelle. She has already planned
some community and neighborhood events
for the Fall.
First up, Lachelle has planned a Community
Involvement Day for Deerfoot Circle in Glen
Mill on Saturday, September 12, starting at 9AM.
As some of you know, Jim Upham of the
GMVA has been instrumental in the process
necessary to get a pathway built along the entrance into Glen Mill.
The pathway, or sidewalk, will be located on the southside entrance into the
Deerfoot Circle neighborhood and is intended to
help protect the safety of the students attending
Lamar Elementary School as they cross Many Pines.
The plan calls for the sidewalk to be completed prior
to the start of the 2009/2010 school year.

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.
The Beverage Shoppe, along with other liquor stores,
is collecting wine corks (real and plastic) and is
recycling them into cork boards and playground mats.
Bring them in next time you need some wine.
Nick will appreciate it.

the last issue of this newsletter we talked about
large percentage increase in the Comcast bill and
said "... 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." The money fee does not go
to the Township, it apparently goes to an organization
controlled by the The Woodlands Development Company.
