Looking for a New GMVA Board Member
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
One of our longest serving board members recently moved and  we are looking for a replacement.  The only legal requirement is  that you are a resident of Grogan's Mill. Candidates will be  selected by the Board of Directors. 

The Directors are looking for  someone who is willing to participate in a wide range of activities  such as: participating in GMVA activities and serving on committees, managing the Farmers' Market, and individual assignments that would include evaluations of requests, complaints and reporting on how we respond . A minimum effort  of eight hours a month is typical. 

If you are interested please  send a short CV citing your education, experience with relevant  activities to president@gmva.org and come to our next meeting  on September 19, 2016 to give us a two minute presentation on  why you would be a good fit. We do have some great parties.
Mark Your Calendar for Farmer's Market Activities
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
This Saturday, August 20 there will be a Back to School Celebration at The Woodlands Farmer's Market. The parents  of the first 20 children who attend with backpacks on will receive a  five dollar certificate for use at the market, limit 1 per family.

The Bike Rodeo had to be postponed because of wet pavement.  The Bike Rodeo  has been rescheduled for September 17 .  We hope to see you at the market!

National Night Out in The Woodlands and Splash Day
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
More than 30 neighborhoods celebrated NNO on August 2.  GMVA Board members attended as many neighborhood parties as they could get to in the two hours.  It was  a great way to meet your neighbors and learn about your  community.

Splash Day Fun
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
On August 14 the GMVA sponsored its Annual Splash Event for the community at Sawmill Park. Even though the weather was not great for swimming about 180 folks showed up and enjoyed a free lunch.  Thanks for coming out!
 
Township Elections
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
While there is extensive  coverage of the  national elections, an important one for  anyone living here is The Woodlands Township elections.  These elections will affect your daily  lives.

There are four positions on The Woodlands Township up for election. Three of the positions  have competing candidates.  We encourage you to learn about the  people running and their positions on how The  Woodlands should operate and be governed.
