Special election: The board hosted a special election for the president position. Majority voted Cara Combs as our new president.
Caroline: Brought up the idea about adopting a highway alongside the road to Clinton Lake. It’s a 2-mile section that we would be responsible for removing liter three times a year for 2 years. It would not cost anything and it would have a sign along the highway that promotes our club. Caroline will look into it.
Cara: Storage was moved into a bigger unit. It will need to be sorted through but should help out with our club events.
