Dog Found in Grogan's Mill on December 6th

Doreen found a female dog wandering near Millbend on December 6th. Please contact her if you know the dog that matches the description below.

"She was traveling with another dog - a blue Australian Cattle Dog (blue heeler) - but we could not catch him. This dog is super sweet, quiet, and is now in my backyard. She has a collar, but no tag. The other pup had a tag, but was a bit skittish. I will post on Woodlands Online shortly. They were hanging around The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center cross street (Millbend?)."

New Sonic in the Grogan's Mill Shopping Center
The DSC has approved a conceptual plan to build a new Sonic restaurant on the corner of Grogan's Mill and South Millbend. This is the empty pad site that had been a gas station.
Holiday Lighting Contest
Responsibility for the annual Holiday Lighting Contest, previously sponsored by The Woodlands Township and The Community Associations prior to the formation of The Township, has now been transferred to each individual Village Association to administer. The GMVA Board, recognizing that there are numerous homes and neighborhoods within our Village worthy of recognition, has restructured the contest this year and therefore announces the 2010 GMVA Holiday Decoration Certificate of Merit contest.

Board members will drive each street in Grogans Mill and note residential holiday decoration displays which are particularly noteworthy for their creativity and style. Each residence selected will receive a personalized Certificate of Merit recognizing their holiday display. A number of houses in each section of the Village will be selected, so that we will have a number of families receiving certificates.

Certificates and letters of appreciate from the Board will be mailed the week after Christmas.

We look forward to posting pictures of the Certificate of Merit winners on the GMVA Web site and in future issues of this newsletter.
