Old Business discussed:  The street sign has been displayed. John & Cameron Cluff’s help was greatly appreciated.  George built a border around it. It looks great, guys. A flower bed around the sign in the front yard is in process.

We are still waiting on a new flag.

Jackson Mill – Sharon made copies of information for the owner.  If you visit the Mill please leave it the way you found it.

Roof money – We are getting close to having enough, but still could use donations. We also discussed painting the garage a different color.

We need an ad for paper.
