Volente Neighborhood Association has just completed replacement of the old wooden bulletin board in front of VVFD with a much more modern unit. The cost of the project is shared between VNA, VVFD/ESD14 and Village of Volente. All three groups will post information about events and activities of interest to residents.
Individuals who helped make it happen: Lonnie Moore researched the project and documented vendors and prices. Mike Vandenack performed the installation with help from Jan Yenawine and our firefighters, including Trevor Koiro. Tim Davis helped coordinate the installation of electricity.

Some Neighborly Advice

To: e-News
From: GL, FM 2769 
Subject: FYI
-Winter of '07 we sowed several hundred dollars of wildflower seed between Navajo and Arrowhead which gave a few flowers last year and hopefully more this year. Suggestion: for best bluebonnets, don't mix with other seeds as we did.
-The park police can ticket you. The car behind me was closing at about 55 mph on Bullick Hollow and was stopped and ticketed by a Park Police SUV which pulled in behind them from the Oasis Bluff road. Assuming that they do not ticket and maintaining speed with them following is a bad choice.
-Lake water pump: Be specific when giving the depth and where you want the pump. Mine was put shallow and was under the dock when the lake went down last time and I had to pay to have it moved. This was after telling the diver to place it over the drop-off into deeper water when it was first installed.
