In Case You Missed It Jan. 2015 Edition

If you were unable to attend last night’s LPCA general meeting, here are some highlights:

-2015 budget passed through a unanimous vote!

-Dog Park: Welcome to our new (veteran) dog park chair, Meg Kelly! A Yappy Hour is planned to commemorate the 5 year anniversary of the dog park on April 25 @ Miguels in Silo Point. Stay tuned for more information. Volunteers are needed to help with fundraising efforts. Contact for more information.

-Parks and Beautification: Dog owners: please remember Latrobe Park is a “leash on your dogs” park. The police will be increasing their presence and you will be fined if your dog is off their leash.
