I hope everyone enjoyed the month of May in Indianapolis!
With the Farmer’s Market in full swing it definitely seems like summer and I have one summer event announcement to make. The Second Annual VRA Golf Outing will be held on Saturday, August 8 at the Zionsville Golf Course (more details later in this VV). Thanks to Todd Rech for organizing it again this year.
I would also like to thank Tom Santelli of the Boone County Council and our neighbors Dan Porzel and Cara Weber for speaking at our last meeting. We do not have any meetings scheduled until August 18. Stay tuned for details.
Please note that the board has discussed eliminating the “Non-Voting Membership” since we also have an “Honorary Membership” to cover anyone living outside of the village that would still be affiliated with the Association. I will put this up for a vote at the annual meeting in October and I will e-blast the details at least 30 days prior to that meeting. Please ensure you are receiving the e-blast and your membership is active if you would like to participate in the vote.
One last note, I saw on the news that the suspect we were warned about by ZPD who was trying to rob businesses and churches in the area by wearing a suit and acting as if he “belonged” there has been apprehended in Bloomington.

VRA Golf Outing
The second annual VRA golf outing will be held on Saturday, August 8th at the Zionsville Golf Course. We are planning a 3 PM tee time with a similar 4 person scramble/best ball format as last years event. We will play 9 holes with a light meal following at the course.
We had a fantastic time last year, and was a great way to have some fun with our neighbors. Participants can once again form their own teams, or sign up as an individual ,and be place on a team.
Please contact Todd Rech at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or to sign up. Look for more information in the next Village Voice. The estimated cost is $30 which will include a 9 holes, a cart, prizes and the meal.Winter is over! Hooray! The Farmer’s Market is opening Saturday, May 16. Come see your favorite vendors and meet some new ones. Your fellow villagers will be there, so it will give you a chance to catch up with them too.
