New Board's First Meeting

Our newly-elected board members had their first Board Meeting last Friday night. The major topic addressed was the resurfacing of the park. We are currently investigating options to resurface the park in a way that will be longer-lasting than the current set-up. The Board plans to meet monthly and we will keep everyone updated on our progress. In the meantime, you can see the new board positions and members on our Meet the Board page here: http://segerdogpark.org/meet-the-board/
