Across the Lake Swimmers
Garden Angel

Week of August 6, 2017

By now you have noticed the new seal coat/chip sealing on Hall/Cedar and Wildwood Avenues.  This continues our capital improvement plan of sealcoating our heavier travelled roads every 4-5 years.  (Our side roads get done on a longer schedule).  One need only to drive, bike or walk the Mahtomedi section of the same road to see what an improvement this maintenance makes.  Moreover, for every dollar we spend on maintenance, we save $7 in repairs and reconstruction.

Thanks to the garden angel that weeded the city hall flower bed.  Anyone know who that is?  The  gardens look great now with the black-eyed susans in bloom.

We have now been assigned a permanent postman...his name is Steve and he really likes working in our community.

Our neighborhood had its National Night Out picnic last week.  It is always fun to get together with young and old and share good food and stories.  We really should have more than one picnic a year--it is always a fun time.

Here is a picture of the Across the Lake Swimmers this year.
