Old Business – Sign Roof. Bud reported that the shingles would be arriving tomorrow (the 12th) and the roof would be completed soon.

Fire Prevention – Lea Justice has talked with people from the Forest Service about this. A group of them will come to our May 7th meeting including possible members of the various fire departments to address this issue. We thank her for taking care of this.

New Business – Clock – Lynne reported that our old clock has been put back up. It was learned the clock came from the Clam Lake School. Dennis Booth, whose hobby is clock repair, has been researching and working on it to bring it back to life. We thank him for that.

ASHLAND COUNTY EMERGENCY RESPONSE – Lynne reported that Town of Gordon Chairman Doug Thorp had contacted her about compliling a list of contact information (emails) for people that would be affected if the Day Lake Dam should ever go out. The Ashland County Emergency team had contacted him about this. As a side note – Lynne talked with Doug and between them they decided to put her contact info in her news column so people could send their info if they wish to be included. Lynne will also make sure it is on the website.
