At the September meeting we had a great time socializing at Joe's Crab Shack before the meeting. It was explained that we will have three programs sponsored by the SCCB to assist our members. The first is the Transportation Committee in which Steve Baker will be the chairperson. The second program is the Adaptive Technology Committee in which Naomi Soule will be the chairperson. The third committee is the Physical Fitness committee in which a chairperson will be voted on in October.
Veva Wolbrecht was nominated as the Resolution representative at the MCB annual convention by laws meeting held on Friday October 14.
