The Board expressed appreciation for the effort and information put into the Department reports. We always enjoy reading the reports and being kept up to date.


Kay told us that Marie Neumanís name would be added to the gift -plaque.  Her sons, Karl and David, donated $1000 in memory of their mother.


Kay told us that she planned to purchase a planter to match the new outdoor benches. She is looking into the purchase of an awning to cover the skylights and help reduce the heat generated by the lights. The JMI contract went up $50 a month, but they do provide good service.
