In Review - May 28, 2020 Meeting
Josh Sprague opened the meeting and Jennifer Hendrickson was managing the questions.  The invocation was going to be given by Mike Sitek, but we had a little technical difficulty.  Instead we did the Pledge of Allegiance and the four-way test.Susan Stiles gave an update on the annual fund.  We are a little short of our goals and could use a few more bucks if you are so inclined! 
Tom McNellis-a long time member and generous contributor- recently passed away.  He was honored and recognized by Josh Sprague.  Ann Platt will send out future information.
