August Newsletter Highlights
WEEDS! WEEDS! WEEDS! Bill Adney, Ivanhoe resident and helicopter pilot, observed the fast growing aquatic plants along the shores of Lakes Galahad and Tristan. As he flew over Lake Hyatt (a lake located to the south of us) he noticed the lake was nearly covered by similar water plants. Concerned about the fate of Ivanhoe lakes, Bill sprang into action consulting the Internet and county agricultural agent. One meeting has already been held with concerned citizens in which Mac McCune, President of Lake Management Specialists of Sugarland was an invited guest speaking about possible solutions to the weed problem. (a more detailed report is given in the August newsletter). On Saturday, August 17 at 10 a.m. there will be a second meeting for the public held at the community center with more detailed information. If you would like to speak with Bill about becoming a member of the lake committee, contact him at 409-224-2388.
