This is a place to share information about Sand Lake and the Rainbow Drive Homeowners Association.  It is periodically updated as new informatio becomes available.  The goal is to assist members in obtaining knowledge about the lake, Rainbow Drive, and related activities.
Even though the name is "Rainbow Drive Homeowners Association", the bylaws state that "...membership consists of property owners of the area known as the Charles E. Wright Plat and the West Point Addition Plat."

Some ideas being considered are:
   * Have members email addresses available so that information can be made available quickly.
   * Possibly have a a discussion site where ideas can be shared.
   * Provide information related to the interraction between Sand Lake and Lake Templene.

I will work with our president, Bob Herrington, or anyone else in the association, in developing this site.  If you have suggestions, or comments, please email them to me at my email address:
