September has been a quiet month with the kids back in school and vacations over with.  Again, let me thank all of you who volunteer your time and equipment to mow our parks.  We have not mowed as often as I would like, but due to lack of rain we didn't want what grass we did have burning up.  There have been some reports of damage done to signs in the parks and dam areas.  REMEMBER:  If you get caught, charges will be brought against you.  Please note that the big dumpster is no longer at the community center.  It is put there during the summer months so people using the swim area or community center can get rid of their trash.  Thank you to Byron and Aileen Holley for the donation of the three cement pots with flowers for the front of the office area.  On the Clean-up/Repair Community Center Day which is scheduled for October 15th, more work will be done to improve the front of the office area.  We have several projects planned over the next couple of months in the park areas too, just needed to wait for cooler weather....I will keep you posted on what is planned and if you would like to help, you are more than welcome.  Ron Sikora, IPOIA (Parks and Lakes) 


The October IPOIA meeting is scheduled for Saturday, October 8th at 10:30 a.m.  at the Buck Priest Community Center.

This Blog was established to keep you informed about the happenings in Ivanhoe.  Your comments are appreciated but we feel that property owners need a personal contact with a board member for some of the questions that have been asked on the blog.  Therefore, your IPOIA Board has set up a email address so that you can send your comments/questions in and you should receive an answer within 24 hours.  Remember one very important fact.  The IPOIA is only responsible for the Parks and Lake areas within Ivanhoe so we ask that you only email questions concerning the IPOIA.   All other questions need to be directed to the City of Ivanhoe.

Here is some interesting information if you are over 60 and need a ride into town.  The East Texas Support Services, Inc. will come to your house, pick you up and take you to town and bring you back home when you are finished.  For Veterans or the disabled if under 60, the fee is $5.  Please call 1-800-256-6111 or 409-384-8751.  If these services are not used, we may lose them in Tyler Co. If you  know anyone who might benefit from this service please give them the phone numbers.  The Rural Transportation Driver that I spoke with is going to drop some flyers off at the office with more detailed information and I will post when they become available.
