2007 Annual Meeting
The Friends of the Parks of Lakeway organization held its annual meeting at the Lakeway Activity Center February 22. Refreshments were served and the business meeting started at 7PM. The meeting adjourned around 8PM.
Bernie gave the Treasurer's report which shows a balance of just under six thousand dollars and sixty-six families have renewed for the year 2007. Mickey gave a "State of the FOP" including accomplishments during the past year and possible projects for the upcoming year. Janet Wright gave an update on the City's upcoming Family Park Day in May.
New business items were discussed. The annual dues were changed to $15 a year by a vote of the members present. We welcomed Cindy Berdan and Bill Freas as the new board members to fill empty seats left by recent resignations. The floor was opened to the membership for discussion of any topic and a lively discussion developed on maintenance of old trails and possible new trails in the city of Lakeway and surrounding areas.
