On January 15, 2015, Heather Woolwine from the City of College Station spoke to the Board of Directors about the pilot program for a new method of recycling collection. Only Emerald Forest and Sandstone will be participating in the pilot program beginning February 2. Large collection bins will be issued to participating households by January 23. Those not wishing to participate can have the bins picked up by request. All recycling materials will go into the bin without pre-sorting. No bags will be needed. Cardboard and pantry staple boxes may now be recycled, so long as they fit into the bin. Collection day will remain Monday, however, it will be reduced to every other week. The successful expansion of this program will be based upon participation and feedback from the pilot program participants.
Our local Boy Scout troop is preparing for their annual Scouting for Food event. On January 24, 2015, as part of Super Bowl of Caring, our troop would like to once again go door to door in Emerald Forest and place door-hangers to remind folks to donate non-perishable foods to the Brazos Food Bank. The scouts will return on January 31, 2015 to pick up your donations. Please be mindful of supporting this worthy cause in the new year.
Did you know we have our very own Little Free Library in Emerald Forest? It is located under the trees by the tennis court and pool. The mission of the worldwide Little Free Library movement is to promote literacy and the love of reading within our communities by building free book exchanges. Our library was created by community volunteers and is supported through your participation. We are especially in need of children’s books and this is a great way to share and recycle those you no longer need. Please stop by and “Take a book, Leave a book”.
The pool is open NOW!
Still a little cloudy but much better and getting better.
So sorry for the inconvenience. A full report will be posted shortly, there are a few things we are still watching.
We are having additional inspections today and I will have additional information soon. A full report will be available to everyone shortly. Very sorry for the inconvenience, I miss the pool as well but the closure is necessary.
Until further notice.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
