New Business

Missy passed around donation requests received from Light the Night Walk, Flag Day, Community Arts Center and Catholic Charities. It was decided amongst the group, we would participate in the Light the Night Walk and donate $100 to the Flag Day donation request (motion approved by Stan Haberkorn and Chris Cameron) but the Community Arts Center and Catholic Charities are out of the group’s area and we will not be supporting them.
