Michael Schell – please come to the May 20th meeting we will be brainstorming ideas for activities and events we can participate in possibly sponsor. Examples: community outreach, education, lunch and learns, special meeting with guest speakers.
We need to support this committee we are supposed to have 4 meetings per year – we have to keep momentum going as this is a federal election year.
We have limited funds to work with. I encourage attendance; let’s make this committee a priority.
