MEETINGS.  Proposal made to have one breakfast meeting a month, and one evening meeting a month, to try to accommodate varied schedules.  Keith said Monday is the only good day for him, and he suggested going back to 1st and 3rd Mondays, to allow occasional appearance at City Council.  Mornings don't work for Janell.  After discussion, it was agreed that the next meeting will be held on Monday, Sept. 26th at 8 a.m. at Long Way Home Restaurant.  Jeannie will confirm with the Longs.  Further discussion on dates to follow.

BUNTING BANNERS provided by SBO need to be returned.  Please return to Candy Depot.
