Spring Tick Tubes Session – May 15 2019 from 8pm to 9pm

KMCA will host a Tick Tube making session for the community on 15 May from 8 to 9 pm. Tick tubes are the most effective way to reduce the number of ticks on your property making it much safer for outdoor activity and play. Ticks can transit Lyme disease.

Tick tubes are cotton balls soaked in Permethrin stuffed inside a toilet paper roll. Mice take the soft cotton balls back to their nests while the Permethrin kills the ticks but does not harm the mice. Buying pre-made tick tubes costs $80 but the KMCA is offering them at a subsidized rate of $10.

Pre-payment is required. Please use the form below. Payment is by Paypal, and you will be redirected to Paypal after entering your information. Location information will be sent after you register.

Registration is limited to the first 22 registrants.

KMCA Meeting – Monday 12/17/2018 @ KMES

Please arrive a few minutes early and check in. Everyone who checks in will receive a key chain/safety whistle and a raffle ticket. We’ll have drawings during the meeting for some goodies from The Candy Man.

The detailed agenda is below.

For the agenda item regarding the land between Northwood High School and Northwood Terrace, there has been some concern raised that rather than turning the land over to MNCPPC so it can remain parkland, which we had previously been told was the plan, the land might instead be sold for private development. Our speakers will explain the situation and we’ll have an opportunity as a community to express our position on the future of that parcel of land.

We will also be voting on the KMCA budget for 2019.
