Discussion was held about printing the Green Lake Directory every two years rather than three years as during the past.   Ideas were to print the names of new residents in the  June Green Lake Breeze than stay with every three years.   No action was taken. 

J. Nelson asked T. Frazee to discuss the Minnesota Waters Conference which he attended for three days in Duluth.  While at the conference Frazee asked Chip Welling, Director of Eurasian Watermilfoil to come to Green Lake for a complete detailed study of the exotic plant.  This meeting is scheduled for Thursday, 05 October 2006, at 10:30 a.m. at the Salisbury Beach Boat Access.  Following a study on Green Lake, the meeting will continue at DEIDRA'S over lunch.   J.
