Grounds:  Lena will bring estimates to install a patio to next month’s Board Meeting.

Archives: The Archive Committee is working on the Traveling Exhibit. It is unknown which types of boards will be used. Diane Grase is calling a meeting with Cherri & Lindsay. Cherri, Kevin, and Lissa will meet this Friday at SIAA at 4:00 to decide on the boards they will use. They have been budgeted in the Archive fund, so they would not need Board approval to purchase what is decided on.

Garden Club: There may not be an August meeting, due to host issues.
