Nancy talked about the loss of Carol Draper this year. She and Rogene Rollins have been residents of the Village for
25 years and volunteered on the Fire Department, TVIA, and took such good care of the flowers at the entrance to the Village.
Rogene has moved to be with family and they both will be missed.

It was proposed that a plaque be put up at the entrance sign honoring Carol Draper. More information will be developed
at the next meeting.
It was approved by the board that the new signers on the checking account at Umpqua Bank will be Nancy Standley, Dorothy
Fullam, and Cindy Gatioan.
Merry Ann gave a report on the Feral Cat program. There were 3 new kittens found and taken to a foster home.
They will be put out for adoption. She has asked that TVIA cover the expenses. She will report the cost at the
TVIA will be continue working on getting the potholes fixed on our roads. Gary Standley and Bruce Millerbis
will be filling the holes as needed.
It was again asked that we slow down on the roads in the Village. We are hopeful that the new signs will help.
The Bulletin board at the entrance needs repair on one of the posts. It was tabled until the end of summer.
Nancy asked for volunteers to help with the work.
Mona Pinochi asked that everyone try to get new volunteers in the Village. Check with neighbors and let them know
about TVIA, HBVFD, and the TVMWC welcomes them to help in any way they can.
There was a concern about properties in the Village that are not kept up and not fire safe. Fire Chief Todd Wright
will contact CalFire to see if they can help us notify the owners. Anita Freemantle said the fire department have sent
letters in the past with no response.
It was also discussed about cutting trees within 100 feet of the property on Forest Service land. Todd said it
is possible to get permission if they are a hazard.
NO FIREWORKS SIGNS have been put up. Hopefully everyone will abide by them.
TVIA will have another BBQ on September 9, 2017. It will be “SO LONG TO SUMMER”. The last one
was a great success and hopefully we will have a great turnout again. Nancy asked for volunteers to make salads or deserts
and TVIA will provide hot dogs..
