Reminder: Zoom meeting is tonight, March 9th, 5:30 p.m.

Just a reminder everyone – the meeting is today at 5:30. 

With this dry winter, I believe it is important that we all be conscious of what needs to be done to protect our homes and communities. 

See you there!


As we started the meeting recording last month, there was just over a full minute of administrative chat – asking Kristin to play co-administrator, discussing hackers, etc. before you actually announced the start of the meeting and got down to business.  I had Zepp edit that section off of the video we actually published.

If you would, please, make sure you are really ready to go straight to the meeting content when I hit record – that way dealing with publishing the video is easier on us.  Thanks.
