It was noted that many of the posts on the libraries are leaning and need to straightened up. Some discussion on putting benches at each Little Library site. Still looking for central storage location for donated books.

Committees June 1,2022 thru May 2023: Tom gave out a list of 7 current committees and 6 new committees. All Members should pick 2 committees to serve on next year.
Committees should meet/convene outside monthly meeting and present if necessary and bring to vote as needed.
Website, Jason pointed out that currently our website has a picture of the Community building. That may be adding to the confusion about differences between Community Building role and role of the Civic Association.
Some goals for next year:
Budget for all events
Committees presented to all, all members pick 1 or 2 to serve on in forthcoming year.
Mary Helen to put plan together to get pathway maintenance paid for by Community Building Board. Taxes that are generated in the tri-villages go to the Community Building Board, not the Civic Association.
Maintain current events/ programs and grow.
