I hope this newsletter finds us in cooler nights and wetter days. The draught has been a stressor on our Beautification Chair Carolyn Lehnert and the Beautification Fund. Lazybrook committed to plant trees the last 3-4 years in our esplanades and Carolyn agreed to keep’em alive for all of us to enjoy. With the Executive Board’s permission she has paid for watering the younger trees (and a few older small trees) throughout the draught and it seems to be working very well as we have lost only a few small trees. My THANKS for her efforts to keep an eye on our situation and make the difficult decisions to spend your money to pay for the extra watering as needed.
Lazybrook worked across the summer, meeting bi-weekly, and is now paired with 8 large and small surrounding neighborhoods to organize into a Super Neighborhood Council for the Lazybrook/Timbergrove Super Neighborhood. They meet on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at Kojak’s 6PM. Our volunteers on the Council are neighbors Joel Copeland and Jorge Sera. This council will bring the will of the people for city improvements to our section of Houston at the city’s expense. Via the SN Council, we now have a STRONG voice at Houston City Council to receive funding on projects (such as irrigation, trail improvements, trash bins, park benches, overlays).
If you would like to run for the Executive Board, now is the time to contact me.
Advertising Chair Position Available
Are you interested in spending a little time to help support your neighborhood? I am no longer able to do this volunteer position and we are looking for a replacement to chair the position of Lazybrook Newsletter Advertisements. This position doesn’t take very much time throughout the year but it truly has an impact in our neighborhood. The advertisements that are sold and posted in our bimonthly newsletter, and now on our website, Lazybrook.org, help to pay for the cost of printing the newsletters that are distributed by our volunteer block captains.
