President John Laprade
President John Laprade
Thank you to all of our owners who are participating here in the Rendezvous Room, on channel 92 and via ZOOM web conferencing. I appreciate your participation in the monthly board meetings.

I sent out a letter with the agenda to all owners about the decorum at the April board meeting. I accept the responsibility for the confusion at the last meeting and hope that the rules outlined in my letter will help the board to be more productive and to avoid the confusion of the last meeting - and most importantly - allow owners to follow along and hear what is being said.

We have a full agenda for our board meeting tonight:


John Laprade
Board President
