We did purchase an enclosed trailer and it has all of the DHPT tools and equipment in it. It is currently parked at the O'Gara residence. We are working with Kelly Printing and Graphics in Preston to get it "wrapped" with our DHPT Logo and the logos from our sponsors. We are hoping to have it done in time to enter it into the Nordic Fest parade. Captain will pull the trailer with his Jeep, unless it is raining and then we'll explore other options. We may either throw candy, or have bicycles with trailers handing out freezie pops.
The Phelps trail extension onto the Trout Run Trail is not going to be a project at this time, but when Park and Rec is ready to do something with the trail, we will be ready and happy to help.
The Secretary Treasurer position will be filled by none other than Richard "Deke" Gosen for the remainder of the 2011 season.
We discussed the possibility of forming a DHPT Non Profit organization. This would mean that DHPT would no longer be a division of Park and Rec, but a seperate entity that works with Decorah park and Rec to maintain the Park Trail System. It was decided not to go forward with creating a non profit at this time.
In other news, Kailyn O'Gara is really fast.
