There was a report of a fast driver on Big Oak.  Todd Wright said to call the Highway Patrol and try to get a license number.  It may not be someone who does not live in the village.  The Highway Patrol number is listed in our newsletter.  

Anita and Todd advised everyone of the importance of having first aid supplies on hand for bee stings. Benadryl is always good to have for any allergy relief.

Audrey Brown HBVFD board member thanked, Liz and Gary Greene, Paul and Cathy Antongiovanni for putting on the B-B-Que last week.  They not only volunteered their time but also got donations and purchased all the food. The fund raiser earned $3,000.00 in donations.  She thanked Kate Vogelsang for the new curtains in our Community Center.  They look great and really spruced the building up inside.  She thanked all the people who helped with the BBQ and Breakfasts.  She thanked all the people who volunteered this last year, Cindy Gatioan for being the Secretary, Merry Ann Grow, Dave Grow,  Kent Brown, Harley Smith, Gary Standley and Doug Ritterbush for being board members and all the work they do.  She also thanked Todd Wright, Bruce Millerbis, Cathy Millerbis, Anita Freemantle, Gary and Nancy Standley, Tim and Janet Fisher  for all they do to keep our department going.

 Anita and the board will work on getting a Calling Post account for any water issues we may have.

The Consumer Confidence report has been mailed along with the new Service Agreement.  Everyone needs to fill it out so the company will have current information on everyone.
