Using member-donated money in the Colonies North Maintenance Fund (CNMF), the board contracted with Tierrablanca Lawn Care, Inc. to perform maintenance on the VJ Esplanade. (This property is a thin strip of land along VJ on either side of the VJ and Colonies intersection.) Hackberries that were dead or shading Live Oaks on the property were removed. Trees of various varieties were trimmed. Finally, the timber fence was repaired. These expenditures depleted the CNMF account. If the like the results, please donate money using the membership form on the back page of the newsletter.
