We are currently investigating a separate account for this money, one that will not be part of tho...

Re: Saturday's incident

Yes those who helped out did a good job of getting help fast and keeping Vrezh stable until professional help arrived. However he would have been in better shape when they arrived if we had medical oxygen (or any oxygen) to give him. We don't have any on site but we will very soon. We now have a pro...

Toyota Hide a Key Set Found in Parking Lot

Re: Year End 2019

For the record, this was a TEAM effort. I had plenty of help from a lot of others! I just wanted to hi-light what our board of directors ( and non board members) have accomplished this year. We work to make this a better place for all.
