- A. (Johnnie) “Thanks to everyone who attended & those who were flexible with the change.”
- --We need to reschedule (in advance) any meeting where the majority of the Officers are not going to be present. Officers needs to ‘step-down’ from their position if time doesn’t allow them to hold their position. More information on this will be discussed at our upcoming ‘Bi-Law’ Committee meeting.

(Dan R. will be out of town, but will join via Zoom.)
- B. There have been two who have shown interest in the needed Grant-Writing. Jenny M. will be a big part of the ‘Google Grant’.
