Charle.s Porter was elected as president and Jsimes O'Conner as vice-president, both by a unanim¬ ous vote. President Porter reappointed Noil Bennett as secretary, Glen Person as Treasurer, and Henry Covylin as Attorney as Attorney on a motion by Lorence, seconded by O'Connor. Schisser and Borchart of Hunt¬ ley were engaged to remove tl^ stumps from the park. There was no further action on the proposed anection of part of Crystal Vista, which is in Dorr Township, to the Grafton Park District. The next move is up to the group wishing to anex. There was some discussion on the possibility of ofchasing 5 lots across from the P^^ area. It. was decided that the price was too high at the present time and the matter was tabled. New, different colored, tags will be given out this year. The old ones have been in use for the past 6 years. This year tM^will only he issued to residentdHjpormer years they were also issued to taxpayers also. Residents, may obtain there tags from the manager at the bea¬ ch as has tieen done in former years. It was decided to investigaate the posibility of putting a sidewalk from the gate to the building. It was pointed out that at the present time x)eople have to walk through sand to get eo the buildingandit is dificult to maintain the appearence of the front and sides of the build¬ ing. Bennett and O'Connor were app¬ ointed to find a renter for the apartment at the beach house as the present renter is plaining to moveed. There was discussion on the ques¬ tion of tho possible sewer extention from Lakewood. It was explained that the present toilet facilities are merely dry wells, both at the toilet and the main house. There is no septics system at eigher location. Ten years ago the dry wells be¬ came coated and new ones had to be dug, one at each location con- ncctin to the former wells. When these dry wells cease to operate, there is no possibility of adding additional dry .wells or a septic system. In the event this happens, there could be no toilet facilities whatsoever at the park, imless the board anexes the park to the Lakewood sewer. It was also point¬ ed out that if a sanitary district were established with the Vista and Gardens, since the park is in Lake- wood, the beach would not be part of it. If Lakewood were to want to extend the sewer system to the village hall, which is west of the beach, they would have to pay a porportionate cost of the ojieratlon There is no possibility way that if the extention were to go through, that it could includ the Vista and Gardens. The manager of Grafton Beach has been authorized to purchas uniform shirts with the insignia of Grafton Park on them for the Lifegards. (Contlnaed <» Page t) Lions Club News by Roger A.
