Committee Reports

  • PPP How To - No change.

  • Tax Exempt Club Status - The forms and money have been mailed.

  • Farmer's Market - Since we can technically meet up to 11 more times this year (since the 12 meeting limitation is per calendar year, not per 12 month period), we are planning on going a few more times. We will meet on Saturdays October 16th and 30th. Contact Hans Uhlig if you wish to help out.

  • Davis Community Network - Foo was not at the meeting. Last we heard, DCN was moving from one trailer to another.

Other Business

  • Financial Report - We collected $48.00 in voluntary dues. Our account now holds $333.88.

  • Meeting Location - Mike Simons will look into reserving a room at the Davis library. The room holds at least 150 people, but does not allow food. Reservations must be 3 to 6 weeks in advance, so the first meeting we can have there won't be until at least November.
