All are welcome to attend our meetings, the second Thursday of each month. If you come, be prepared to be put to work.
Among the many topics discussed, we are particularly excited about two pilot projects. First, our Committee Member and neighbor, Frank Candioto, is spearheading the enhancement of a native area on the 5th hole. This area holds water and is a breeding ground for mosquitos. The fine folks at Ecology+Vision were kind enough to do a pro-bono design.
Next steps will be to gather the neighbors near that hole for an info and fundraising session. As soon as the funds for the project are raised, we will execute. Stay tuned for updates.
Many thanks to Ecology+Vision, and to Frank and his neighbors. This is exactly the kind of proactive engagement that we welcome and encourage as we work to improve Canal Shores for our players, and the community at large.
The second pilot project we covered was the Metra Corner Makeover outlined in our previous post here. Funds for the fence have been raised by the Honourable Company of Reverse Jans golf outing, and members of our Committee.
Details of the project were discussed at the January and February Board Meetings, and the project has been approved, including use of the modest additional funds needed to complete the work this Spring. An information session with the neighbors in the area of the 15th and 16th holes will be held soon, as will volunteer work sessions. Stay tuned for updates.
