Susan Younggren will be the FOLF member to attend SVPB council meetings in the future. The purpose is to keep the communication open and fluid between the two groups. A list was drafted of items she will present on the agenda of the next SVPB council meeting.
The committee wishes to put up wildflower stakes to identify the wildflowers that grow along the beachfront in the spring.
There was a discussion to split the roles of treasurer and secretary on the FOLF committee. The issue was tabled to next meeting.
A discussion was had whether it is the responsibility of the FOLF committee to plan and organize community events. It was conlcluded that Westlake Society would be a better sponsor for these types of activities. The goal of FOLF is to advise council of the beachfront and not to organize events for various communities. A special council will be set up under the supervision of the Westlake Society to plan such activities. There will be communication sent out on the behalf of Westlake to make this announcement and to gain interested members.
Treasurer's report was unavailable but tax deductible receipts will be issued for those that gave donations to FOLF at the pancake breakfast in August.
Next regular meeting will be January 6, 2018 at 10am @ the SVPB office.
Paula Wilkins is the acting president of the F.O.L.F. committee. As a full time, year-round resident of Parkland Beach, I try to understand the needs of all that use the lakefront and beach to help guide the committee in its planning and recommendations in order to report to the council of the Summer Village of Parkland Beach.
