Leapo Monthly Meetings are held
on the second Tuesday of the month
7:00 PM At the Firehouse
Everyone is Welcome, Come and Join Us.
The LEAPO Board of directors has approved a new set of grants for the 2014-2015 membership year.
Splash It has been a fairly quiet period since the last issue, for which I suppose, I should be grateful, but this space still this to be filled up. The Fun Day at the LEFD was just that – great fun. Thanks to all our volunteers who helped out, especially the grilling party on what was a very hot day. At the last meeting, we had a guest speaker, Mr. Hopkins, from the power plant who gave us a “heads-up” about current developments, and also offered (brave man) to come back and meet with us again. Sadly, LEAPO is stopping the can collection program. Our two stalwarts, Vern Crabtree and Perry Young, are taking a well-deserved retirement, they deserve a long-service medal. Despite numerous requests no replacements have stepped up. Later in the year, LEAPO will be offering grants to the subdivisions for their projects – details to come. Also, the AARP Driving Course will be offered in October, an E-Blast will be circulated. Incidentally, the E-Blast system has become a really valuable lake-wide service. Fall seems to be coming early this year, time to stock up on salt. Thanks again to all who have contributed to keeping LEAPO a viable organization. Alun Hughes, President
