Discussion began about the FOGL/Parks Department use of charitable donations the Hinkley family has received on behalf on their Son Taiga’s accident on the lake. Taiga’s Parents, Peter and Monica, graciously assigned any privately received funds to be put in to a general fund of FOGL.

The current leading Family and FOGL use is to develop the West Shore Turtle Log viewing platform. FOGL has tentative draft designs available, which must be coordinated with Parks and Recreation. Read More »
