Pond Report: Duane was absent. Pond has been plowed and skaters have been using it.
Corral Report by Brad Burk: Corral is currently full – eight horses. It has been too cold to work on barn roof. Corral members are asking for a dumpster at approximately $90.00 per month in which to put trash and manure for the winter months. It would be dumped once a month. They have a problem keeping the corral clean in this freezing weather. They do have a harrow which Jeff pulls around, but isn’t adequate during winter months. There as a discussion on this matter that resulted in Kathy Pearson making a motion that we get the dumpster. This was seconded by Gregg Pearson. This is to be a four month contract at a reasonable amount. There was a majority vote to get the dumpster.

Deputy Report: Jeff absent.
Old Business: President Danny announced that we will be making final vote at the March meeting on whether or not the Fish Fund should remain a separate fund or be included in the General Fund.
New Business: Brad Burk mentioned that the trailer that was left on ECHPOA property is apparently abandoned and could be used by the corral if it belonged to ECHPOA. There was discussion on this matter. It was decided that we needed to contact the party that left the trailer on our property, give him a set time to come and get it. If it isn’t removed, see about declaring it abandoned and get it in the name of ECHPOA.
Karen Ellis had a card for all to sign for Joyce Deming who is very ill.
Motion to adjourn was made by Kathy Pearson, seconded by Christina Burk and carried, after which all helped put stamps and stickers on the newsletters.
