The Memorial Weekend Coffee that was scheduled for May 23, 2020 has been cancelled.
This is an update to the News & Notes item posted 11/23/16 outlining a slightly revised procedure
Are you an AmeriGas customer? Would you like to help support one of our local schools? AmeriGas customers can submit page 2 of their bill to a local school and at the end of year the school gets a contribution from AmeriGas. The local schools involved in our area are:
NOTE: You may mail/email Page 2 from your statements each month, periodically a few statements at a time, or all of the page 2s for the entire calendar year at one time. Once the calendar rolls over to a new year, you cannot submit the page 2s for a previous year. Bottom line: the vouchers have to be submitted in the year of the bill.
We are facing an urgent problem regarding the trees in Cobmoosa Shores. With the assistance of Rod Denning, District Forester, Michigan Forestry Assistance Program, we have documented the presence of Oak Wilt in Cobmoosa Shores and know that it has already killed 32 trees. Further, we have been put “on alert” for another infestation that affects Eastern Hemlock, Hemlock Wooly Adelgid. This disease has been documented in our area as close by as Thomas St and the Black Forest.
In recent years we have suffered mass losses of our beech and ash trees due to the effects of Beech Bark Disease and Emerald Ash Borer, respectively. Losing our red oak and hemlock trees will further change the fundamental forest composition we enjoy here. We must take whatever action we can, working together as a neighborhood, to prevent and/or at least mitigate these diseases in order to preserve the forest that characterizes Cobmoosa Shores.
This notification is intended to keep you up to date on your board's efforts to address the problem of threats to our trees, particularly regarding Oak Wilt.
To get started the Cobmoosa Board of Directors has established a Tree Committee. Board members Rick Emerson and William Rafaill will act as co-chairs. Also serving on this committee will be board members Paul Jordan, Jan Morrison, and Ed Dedic; and association members Cheryl Jordan and Barb Rafaill. The purpose of this committee is threefold:
Please consider becoming an active member of the Tree Committee. We would like to have each street in Cobmoosa represented by at least one person to facilitate the distribution of information and to serve as a contact for neighbors with concerns. If you have any questions or would like to serve as a “tree street captain," please use the CONTACT US form on the Cobmoosa Shores website.
