By webmaster - Posted on Nov 19, 2012

A few highlights from the November 14th Board Meeting:

  • David Lee, Webmaster has improved our PCA website by making it easier for members to register. Take a look.
  • Since some of us are leaving PCA and becoming involved in other activities, we need new volunteers to take over several committees. The PCA has helped our community get to know each other again, discover people who need a helping hand, and create a sense of neighborhood and community. If you are sitting at home with a little extra time, join us and meet the people in and around Parshallville, who are friendly, caring and lots of fun.
  • Hanging of the Greens: David has planned for volunteers to meet on Dec 1st at 12:00 noon to hang the greens along the bridge and put a wreath at the cemetery entrance. We are very pleased that Ms. Posey will do Memorial Day decorations again next year.
  • We are pleased to welcome Kristy Beltz, to chair the Newsletter Committee.
