Members who attended Mahwah Day commented on what a nice event it was. The model Susan Golz provided drew people in to learn about stormwater management.
The puppet show was good, but windy conditions made it difficult to use. It could be refined and used another time.
Drawings were held for the pet clean-up supplies donated by Central Pet Supply. Two of the winners were not present. J. DeWan will contact them to get them their prizes.
Some residents signed up to help at the clean-up of Lake Henry to be held on October 9th from 9 a.m. until noon.
The Minutes of the September 8, 2004 meeting were accepted as submitted.
