Treasurer’s Report:
- Balance in account is $17,176.52  This is less than the proposed budgeted balance due to the expense for replacing the front entrance lights which were damaged due to vandalism.   The cost for replacing lights was $1900 -- our insurance covered $1400 while the HOA paid the $500 deductible.
Old Business:
-Front entrance landscaping discussion has been postponed until November meeting.
-Pat will invite Darla to the November meeting.

New Business:  
-All receipts from the picnic have been presented for payment and payments have been made.
-Attendance at the picnic was down this year to about 60 from the usual 90+.  Weather was good and there was no apparent reason for the lower attendance.
-There was a suggestion to limit the number of Talent Show participants next year.  To be discussed further when planning the picnic next year.
-There was another suggestion to reduce the number of rented tables next year since many people chose to stand up rather than sit -- possibly because there was no tent this year and they wanted to stand in the shade.
-Consensus was very positive feedback for using the Quiring girls for face painting and their friend to blow up balloons.
-Regarding placing satelite dishes on roof:  it was agreed that it’s acceptable if they are small.
A note regarding this will be placed in next newsletter
-Regarding vandalism of entrance light:  one entrance light was vandalized for the 2nd time shortly after they had been replaced.
-Craig suggested and the Board agreed that we should just keep the 2 existing lights for now and replace the 3rd light next summer.
-Craig will call electrician about why new lights aren’t going on at night now.
-Zhou family (12512 NW Welsh) have requested permission to paint home but haven’t submitted formal request  with proposed paint colors yet.
-Huijan Yan submitted a request to resign from the Board as she currently doesn’t have the time to participate.  The Board thanks her for considering being a member and will welcome her back if her time permits.
