  5. The Board considered a special assessment of the residents to raise money for a $1,000,000 first prize. After much debate, we all agreed that the pride of being known as the best photographer in Montevideo far outweighed any monetary prize. That said, if anyone wants to donate a new car as a first prize, I'm all ears. Happy 4th everyone!!

  6. Where do we vote? Or how does that work?
