General Meeting Thursday October 19th

NEW START TIME: 7:00 PM

A general meeting of members is Thursday, October 19th.

The meeting is open to all residents, including non-members.

This is our annual business meeting to approve the budget.

Topic: Reintroducing Carp to Our Lakes

In the KGCL newsletter recently delivered to all homes in King’s Grant, we wrote about the possible reintroduction of carp in our fresh water lakes as a means to control the expanding problem of aquatic weeds. We will devote our fall meeting to this discussion. Based on the size of our lake system, we estimate that approximately 300 carp would be needed to start, with about 20% replenishment every two years if the program meets expectations.  As a property owner on the lake, the KGCL has a special interest in the water quality of our lakes, and we will engage our membership to determine the extent of our participation, but it remains primarily a task for home owners around the lakes to lead the way.  If you have an interest in the appearance and water quality in our neighborhood lakes, please attend.  Read your newsletter for more information.

New Landscaping at The Triangle

As you are driving by The Triangle you will notice that we replaced the landscaping at the intersection of King’s Grant Road and N. Lynnhaven Road.

May Farm Garden Club donated the landscaping as a community project. Elaine Hillers was the point person for the garden club and did all the coordination with the nursery for design and plant selection. Plants were selected as low maintenance and drought resistant.

KGCL will maintain the landscaping, as we have always done. Basically, we will mulch it (Elaine suggested pine straw for the future), spray it, weed it.

Wolfsnare Creek Park

King’s Grant Community League’s mission is to maintain open space in the neighborhood for residents and visitors. This park is a tranquil spot on Watergate Lane looking north over Wolfsnare Creek. There’s a sturdy bench where you can sit to look, listen, and think. There’s an access to the water suitable for canoes and kayaks at high tide. Boat trailers and motor boats are not allowed.

Independence Day Parade and Picnic

King’s Grant Community League will host its annual Independence Day parade and picnic beginning at 11am on Tuesday, July 4th.  The event is easy to enjoy… just show up and have fun.

KGCL really wants your participation in whatever transportation mode suits your interest:  bikes, strollers, golf carts, wagons, lawn mowers, vintage vehicles, decorated vehicles, tractors, fire trucks, motorcycles, or just walk.  Tell your neighbors.  Assemble in Blue Ridge Court across from Witt Park at 10:45am.

KGCL will give each child 12 years old or younger a large patriotic pinwheel for participating.  We will also award prizes in our bicycle decorating contest.
