  1. We discussed our 2019 budget and funds allocated by BoS– $1,000 for 2019. Findlay has offered to draft suggestions on how to allocate. (It appears by BoS minutes we have $25,000.00 but that was pledged to the sound walls initiative.)
  2. Chris Lawrence wrote: Hi Dick, I’m in need of some help with the Charlestown Park native trees. I’d like to get a spring group together (along with scouts if we can) to check on tree status, install the ≈45 tree cages for the new trees, and see if any have died. Would anyone on the EAC group be interested early in the spring?
