Jeannie picked up Soup Cook Off paperwork from the School Board office.

The new “Shop Local” mascot was discussed, with its’ purpose being to remind people to “Shop Local”.   Ideas were exchanged regarding the naming of the Mascot, and where it would first be placed.  The Committee had chosen a Hobo as the mascot because of the train yards and because most people think of trains when they think of Bellevue, however; due to the negative connotations associated with being a “train-hopping homeless person”, it was decided that the “Hobo” mascot should be “Shoppin’ Sally” – the new girl in town.  She will travel to area businesses with her notebook where her adventures will be documented.
Judy Miller will contact Stephanie Bucchanan at BPL to approve “Shoppin’ Sally”.
The formerly chosen “Hobo” hopped on a train and headed for the next town.

Shop Small ideas were discussed.

The next SBO meeting will be held at Bellevue Public Library, Monday May 21st at 7:00 pm, where “Shoppin’ Sally” will be revealed.
