Bible Study-Dan Smith-We’ve been meeting at the Carport, averaging 18-20 people. He appreciates the use of the sound system. It has been very helpful. We plan to meet in the Rec Hall this Thursday. Since last Easter, he has been doing a Sunday church service at 10 a.m. by the waterfront because some people didn’t feel comfortable going to Church during the pandemic. He will continue to do that until this Easter.

There are 8 pots that need to be replanted with new dirt, fertilizer, etc. at a cost of $40-50 each. This would be the first year we have replanted them for a long time. A motion to spend up to $400 to replant the pots at the Hall, RV Park, and office was made by Brenda O. and seconded by Sue C. The motion passed with a unanimous voice vote.
