Memorial Benches
Comments (0)
Members have the opportunity to contribute to the placement of memorial benches on community property. Rich Ryan will be arranging for the purchase and placement of the benches, and he will acquire the memorial plaques that will be placed on the benches. Plans are to install the benches in the boat ramp area, and along Hibiscus. The donation per bench is $150. It is also possible to share the cost of the bench with another member if that is arranged in advance. Anyone interested in donating should use the Memorial Bench contribution form found on the Resources page of this site.
 
Pets
Comments (0)
Per the Town of Chincoteague's law, dogs must not be allowed to roam off the property of its owner or custodian while not under its owner's or custodian's immediate control.

Anyone experiencing a problem with a dog should report the incident to the authorities, in this case the Accomack County Animal Control Officer. This is a town issue rather than an Association issue -- you'll need to report issues if you want action.  

Members and guests are asked to clean up after their animals and to dispose of the waste properly rather than leaving collected waste anywhere in the community.
