    • With the up coming move and the large build outs for either space i think we should be looking to solicit material donations for construction. I have complied much of the information we need and started talking to some businesses. However I can't run all over 3 counties during business hours by myself. I envision this meet being planning who we should talk to, which of our members will talk to which businesses, and distribution of needed paperwork.
