James Anderson Park – Medina Lake
Members!! Due to members violating the rules we have had several suspensions of park privileges. I am posting these not to embarrass anyone but for members to pay attention to the rules.
The board and myself do not enjoy giving suspensions so please follow the rules.
1) a member was given a 30 day suspension for allowing their son to have access to the park without the member present at the park.
2) pending suspension for a member who was at the park and left their guests with member's key fob inside the park. The member had no intention of returning.
3) pending suspension for a member giving key fob to daughter. The daughter is not a member and brought 14 guests(total with member then would have been 16).
Member arrived approximately 4 hours after the daughter and her guests arrived.
When you signed for the key fob you accepted the rules and signed that you understood the rules.
Rules posted on this page feel free to read them.

Subject: Snoga’s Lunch
Next Saturday, May 30, at 1:00 pm, we will meet at Snoga’s for the first time since the lockdown.
Alva Snoga was very excited to hear we would be back since business was very slow, even after they were able to reopen the dining room this week.
They have always been great to us so it would be a show of support for the family owned and run business to get a large crowd back. Those who want to wear a mask or sit away from the crowd, are still invited with that option available.
The address is 2567 Goliad Rd and they still take cash, check, debit cards, and credit cards, no American Express.

Tony will be greatly missed.

I am starting a police reserve program in Hill Country Village and would like to tap into the SAPD retired officers. If possible, please send out an email to the officers and let them know.
We will hold the officer’s commission in exchange for two days a month patrol work in the great city of Hill Country Village. We are flexible and will insure the officers are taken care of.
