Home Tour Meetings: We talked about when we may all be available. It was decided that we would have a Home Tour Meeting on July 11, 2016.

Springfield History Tour & Redevelopment, presented by Chris Farley: Chris made a map and history of interesting places in Springfield. It was discussed that it should be put on the SIAA website first. Jeff stated we could try to come up with facts for each house on the map. Chris stated that the S-Line offers no where to eat, or have coffee in Springfield.

Committee Reports:

Rentals: We have 3 new rentals since last month’s Board Meeting.

They are rotated, so the same ornaments are not put up each year. The alarm went off at this time.
