We will put an ad in the paper about volunteering.
Speakers?? Pair with Historical Society, Ag Commission. We discussed having Steve Taylor as a speaker.
The Main Street Brochure was distributed. It is beautiful. We have put some at the Library, our “kiosk” at the Town Hall, and at the Country Store.
