                                                                    Water Dip Tank Being Repaired
The water dip tank located just south of the Community is being repaired. For a while now it has been leaking.  Volunteers representing the DMR VFD
steam cleaned the tank and discovered large cracks.  Chief Mike Fryer, Ken Gossett, Julian Pierce and Will Dodd all chipped in to get the tank ready for
the necessary repairs.  For anyone that was not present during the fires appx 5 years ago, helicopters fighting the blazes dipped water out the tank.  It is
very necessary that the tank be repaired and paced back in operation, especially with the current fire danger.  Marvin Voiers, DMR VFD Support Group
President, advised that the goal is to get the water tank repaired and filled by March. Right now It's cleaned and the next step is sealing the cracks that
were found.  The DMR VFD is going to buy the repair materials and wait for the proper weather to do the repairs.
                                                                   WATER DIP TANK HAS BEEN REPAIRED!  
With the combined efforts of volunteers from the DMRVFD and financial support from the DMPOA, the water dip tank located just south of the
Community Center has been repaired.  Thanks to all of the volunteers, including Julian, Jan, Will, Sam and Barbara and Mike.  The tank is now ready
for any fires that may occur.  If anyone has never seen helicopters dipping water out of the tank during times of fire, it's an amazing sight. Thanks to
everyone for their work.  Also, thanks to Marvin for the updated photos.

Aug. 12, 2017 DMPOA Meeting  -  Here is a short synopsis of the meeting:

Employee Job Descriptions were updated.  The biggest item on the agenda was an age-old question concerning Limpia Creek and whether anyone could gather material from the creek or it's tributaries.   A report
obtained from the TWPD stated, basically, that Limpia Creek is private property rather than a navigable waterway.   Therefore the DMPOA can gather material from the creek beds and that property owners can gather
material on their own property.  A special Executive Meeting will be held on Sunday, Aug. 13th at the Community Center.  Legal issues will be addressed.  The public will not be allowed to sit in on the Executive
Session that will be held in the Community Center itself rather than in the break room.  Various committees were announced.  The complete list of committees is as follows:
                                                                         SILK SCARF DYEING CLASS IN THE DMR
On Nov. 2, 2017, Maria LeJeune presented a class on Silk Scarf Dyeing Class in the DMR. Quite a few ladies showed up and thoroughly enjoyed the class. We have so many talented people living in the

Thanks to Nakia and Stephen Hambright for administering free flu shots on February 21st  at the Community Center.  A
