Storm Aftermath: Wayne Feener, head of construction for DOTPW, feels that the crib on Crescent Beach is dangerous as it is after sub-tropical storm, Noel because of broken pieces of wood and protruding nails. After discussion it was agreed that the crib should probably be removed but the decision is not ours to make. A letter will be written to DoTPW with copy to DNR to ask what they plan to do about the dangerous situation with the cribwork. After discussion of ways to help build/preserve the dunes, it was moved, seconded and carried to spend a limited amount on the installation of a test section of short (1 to 2 foot tall) snow fence between the rocks and the dunes.

Newsletter: Discussion of how to share costs fairly for the joint Friends/LaHave Islands Museum. It was agreed that the cost of production should be pro-rated on a per page basis, and the Museum should provide at least one advertiser and pay half the cost of mailing. We also need volunteers for letter distribution.
