AT SOME POINT, ALL SPORTS ARE SCHEDULED TO START IN SEPTEMBER WITH SOCCER, FLAG FOOTBALL AND VOLLEYBALL.

AND THEN LASTLY, WE GET HOME EVERY DAY BY MY MEMBERS.

THANK YOU FOR BEING OPEN.

THIS IS MY PLACE TO GO TO GET AWAY FROM ALL THIS STUFF.

AND I WAS SCARED TO COME BACK AT FIRST, BUT IT'S SO CLEAN, BUT I'M SO GLAD THAT I DID.

WE ARE SERVING THE COMMUNITY AS WE ARE SUPPOSED TO AND ARE LOOKING FOR, LOOKING FOR MORE WAYS TO DO THAT THIS FALL.

SO HE SAYS, IF YOU HAVE ANYTHING, LET THEM KNOW.

SO I WOULD SAY IF THERE ARE ANY QUESTIONS, BUT I WON'T BE ABLE TO ANSWER ANY OF THEM.

SO, UM, SO IT'S GREAT TO SEE THAT THE WISE THOUGH, DOING GREAT.

JOSH, I HAVE ONE, ONE WILD UP ABOUT THE BOOK.

YEAH, THE FOOTBALL TEAMS. DON'T I LOST YOU THERE FOR A MINUTE ADVANCE.

I COULDN'T HEAR YOU.

OKAY.

CAN YOU, UM, TELL THE BOARD A BRIEF, THE BOARD ON THE NEW FOOTBALL LEAGUE THAT'S COMING THEY'RE HERE PLAYING.

YEAH.

YEAH.

EVERY SATURDAY, UM, GREATER DAYTON FLAG FOOTBALL IS A USED IN CLOUD PARK.

UM, THE FIELDS UP ON TOP OF THE HILL BY THE PLAYGROUND BACKED BY SHELTER SIX, THEY'RE USING TWO FIELDS THERE.

UM, THEY THEY'RE THERE ABOUT NINE O'CLOCK EVERY SATURDAY MORNING AND THEY'RE THERE TILL ABOUT 12 OR ONE.

UH, THEY GOT 15 TEAMS, A LOT OF THEM FROM OUT OF THE AREA AND SOME FROM OUT OF STATE THAT COME IN, UH, THE OUT OF STATE TEAMS COME IN EVERY OTHER WEEKENDS AND THEY'LL NORMALLY PLAY THREE OR FOUR GAMES, UM, EACH TEAM WHEN THEY COME IN.

SO, UH, THEY'RE, THEY'RE COMING IN.

THEY'RE, THEY'RE BRINGING FOOD TRUCKS AND, UM, THEY LOVE BEING THERE.

SO THEY'RE, UH, LOOKING FORWARD TO, UH, THEY'RE GOING TO DO, I THINK, THREE TOTAL SEASONS THIS YEAR MOVING INTO PROBABLY TOWARDS THE END OF NOVEMBER.

THERE'LL BE DONE.

AND, UM, THEN THEY'RE, UH, THEY'RE ALREADY READY FOR NEXT YEAR.

SO THEY'RE, UH, THEY'RE ENJOYING THE SPACE.

AND THEN, UM, FLAG FOOTBALL.

FANATICS IS A YOUNGER KIDS, FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

THEY CONTACTED ME THIS WEEK LOOKING FOR FIELD SPACE AS WELL.

UM, I TALKED TO THEM FOR A LITTLE BIT ON THE PHONE.

THEY'RE GOING TO GO SCOUT OUT A COUPLE OF LOCATIONS.

I TOLD THEM TO CHECK OUT SHOAL PARK AND, UM, THEN THEY'RE ALSO GOING TO TAKE A LOOK AT RIP RAP PARK, UH, SINCE IT'S NOT BEING USED, WE'VE REMOVED THE SOCCER GOALS.

SO THEY'VE GOT, YOU KNOW, A TON OF SPACE THERE.

THEY CAN SPREAD OUT, THEY NEED SPACE FOR THREE FIELDS.

SO, UM, I THINK RIP RAP WOULD GIVE THEM WHAT THEY NEEDED THERE.

OKAY.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ON THAT, DENNIS? NO, I WAS JUST QUESTIONING YOU RIP RAP.

IS THAT PART OF, THAT'S NOT PART OF OUR PART.

YES.

WE OWN, WE OWN THE FRONT HALF OF THAT PARK.

THE BACK OF IT'S OWNED BY THE MIAMI CONSERVANCY DISTRICT, BUT WE OWN THE FRONT HALF OF THAT PARK.

OH.

I THOUGHT AT ONE TIME THERE WAS LIKE THE BIKE WE OWN LIKE THE PARKING LOT OR SOMETHING AND SOMEBODY ELSE, NO, WE OWN THE PARKING LOT AT THE FRONT.

A GOOD, A GOOD CHUNK.

PRETTY MUCH WHERE THE BIKE PATH TAKES A SHARP TURN FROM THERE TO THE EDGE OF THE LEVY IS ALL THE CITIES AND THEN EVERYTHING BEHIND IT AS IT CONSERVANCIES.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT, RON.

OKAY.

WAIT, NO, SIR.

CHRIS ALEX.

WELL, I HAVE A QUESTION FOR CHRIS, BUT WHAT I DO IS I WAS TEXTING HIM ALL WEEK THAT HE GETS BACK AND THAT IS JUST A WIDE DONOR.

STILL BE PROVIDING CHILDCARE SERVICE FOR THE SCHOOL.

AGES NINE AT YOUR KIDS ARE STARTING SCHOOL NEXT WEEK BECAUSE THEY SHUT IT DOWN A SCHOOL SHUT DOWN AND THE KIDS WERE COMING INTO THE WHITE AND A LOT OF THE SENIORS ACTIVITY, UH, HOW IT, SO I WANTED TO FIND OUT, ARE THEY GOING TO START ALLOWING THEIR SENIORS BACK FOR THEIR ACTIVITIES? NOW WHAT I TALKED WITH CHRIS ABOUT THAT WHEN HE GETS BACK.

OKAY.

NO, SIR.

J YEAH.

JUST CURIOUS, IS THAT FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE AN ONGOING THING FOR

[00:15:01]

FUTURE YEARS? OR DO YOU KNOW THAT YET? SORRY.

IS THAT FOOTBALL FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE ONGOING FOR FUTURE YEARS? OR DO YOU KNOW THAT YET? OR ARE THEY HAPPIER THE GREATER DAYTON FLAG FOOTBALL, CORRECT.

YEAH, THEY'LL PROBABLY BE HERE FOR A LITTLE WHILE.

THEY WERE AT ACTION SPORTS AND, UH, ANOTHER LEAGUE OUT THERE KINDA MESS THINGS UP FOR THEM.

SO THEY WERE KIND OF QUICKLY LOOKING FOR A NEW LOCATION, BUT I'M JOE, THE GUY THAT RUNS THAT LEAGUE IS VERY HAPPY AT CLOUD.

AND, UM, HE SAYS HE LIVES RIGHT BY THERE.

SO IT KINDA WORKS GOOD THAT HE CAN, YOU KNOW, BE THERE QUICK AND IN AND OUT AND ALL THAT STUFF.

SO I THINK THERE'LL BE AROUND FOR LONG.

THAT'S AWESOME.

OKAY.

HEY, GLENN.

YEAH, EVERYTHING'S GOOD.

I LIKE THAT IDEA OF THE FLAG.

OKAY.

ALRIGHT.

SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO NEW BUSINESS, UH, PROGRAMMING AND ACTIVITIES.

SO, UM, FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAD THE CHANCE TO REVIEW THE DOCUMENT THAT I SENT YOU, UM, AS I MENTIONED BEFORE, I'M TRYING TO DEVELOP OR COME UP WITH SOME IDEAS FOR PROGRAMS. UM, SOME OF WHICH COULD BE, WE COULD PROBABLY DO THIS YEAR OR OTHERS WE CAN AND GROW, SORRY, OR OTHERS WE CAN DO NEXT YEAR.

SO, UM, THE TWO THAT I SENT YOU, ONE WAS THE PUMPKIN GLOW AND THE OTHER ONE WAS THE PUMPKIN SCAVENGER HUNT.

UM, I DID SEE A COUPLE OF COMMENTS BACK IF THEY WERE POSITIVE COMMENTS, ACTUALLY PEOPLE LIKED THEM AND LIKED THE IDEA.

AND AGAIN, THAT WAS JUST AN INITIAL, UM, SKELETON AND DRAFT.

UM, I STILL HAVE SOME WORK TO DO ON IT.

UM, BUT, UM, I'LL START WITH THE PUMMELING THOUGH.

UM, MY INTENT WAS TO TRY AND TIE THAT TO ANOTHER CITY OR WHY EVEN IN OCTOBER, YOU KNOW, EVERY YEAR WE DO THE, FOR INSTANCE, EVERY YEAR WE DO THE, UM, TRUNK COUNTRY.

SO MAYBE DO THIS IN CONJUNCTION WITH THAT AT THE AMPHITHEATER, YOU KNOW, OR DO IT SO LOW.

BUT I THINK DOING IT, WHAT THE, YOU KNOW, TRUNK RETREAT IS A GREAT, WILL BE GREAT BECAUSE THE LINES TEND TO BE LONG, SO PEOPLE CAN START THERE OR IN THEIR, UH, IN THEIR TRIP.

AND THEN THE ENTIRE GOAL TOO IS ALSO TO TRY AND MINIMIZE CITY COSTS.

SO, UM, THE IDEA THAT I HAD WAS TO HAVE RESIDENTS, UM, PURCHASE AND DONATE, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE, THEY'RE PUMPING THEIR CAR PUMPKINS FOR THIS EVENT, YOU KNOW, UM, WE WOULD DESIGNATE A TIME THEY WOULD DROP THEM OFF.

WE WERE, YOU KNOW, PLACED THEM AT THE AMPHITHEATER ON THE PATH, ON THE BENCHES.

AND THEN, YOU KNOW, WE WOULD LIKE THEM, WE, THE BOARD OF THE CITY WILL PROVIDE THE, THE ACTUAL, AND WE WOULD ACTUALLY DO THAT AND THEN LEAVE THEM GOING UNTIL THE END OF THAT OTHER EVENT OR FOR A COUPLE OF HOURS.

SO I JUST WANT TO SEE IF YOU GUYS HAD ANY COMMENTS, ANY IDEAS OR ANY ISSUES.

YES, SIR.

JOSH.

SO, UM, I WAS TALKING TO JERRY, YOU KNOW, ABOUT THAT IDEA AND, YOU KNOW, I, WE BOTH THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA, BUT I THINK THE BEST THING TO DO IS HAVE THE PEOPLE BRING THE PUMPKIN'S CARVED AND THEN TAKE THEM WITH THEM AT THE END OF THE NIGHT.

CAUSE OTHERWISE WE'RE GOING TO BE CLEANING UP A LOT OF SMASHED PUMPKINS AT THE AMPHITHEATER.

AND, UM, SO I THINK THE BEST THING TO DO IS, YOU KNOW, HAVE THEM DROP THEIR PUMPKIN OFF AND THEN TELL THEM, YOU KNOW, AFTER THIS TIME, YOU KNOW, YOU CAN COME PICK UP YOUR PUMPKIN, TAKE IT BACK HOME WITH YOU, YOU KNOW, PUT IT ON YOUR PORCH, DO WHATEVER.

UM, AND, UM, I DO KNOW THAT AT THE OCTOBER 10TH MOVIE, UH, THEY ARE PASSING OUT PUMPKINS.

SO THAT MIGHT BE A GOOD WAY TO, YOU KNOW, FOR THOSE THAT ARE RECEIVING PUMPKIN'S TO LET THEM KNOW, HEY, BRING THIS BACK ON SUCH AND SUCH DATE, UM, YOU KNOW, DECORATED, CARVED, PAINTED, WELL, HOWEVER THEY WANT TO DO IT AND, UM, AND GO FROM THERE.

CAUSE I THINK THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE ABOUT A HUNDRED OF THEM TO PASS OUT AT THE MOVIE NIGHT.

OKAY.

AND, UM, DO YOU KNOW WHO'S DOING THAT? UM, I BELIEVE A AND B WILL BE, UM, BUT I MEAN, IT'LL BE, YOU KNOW, AGAIN, ONE OF THOSE CONJUNCTION EVENTS WITH, WITH ALL OF US WHERE, YOU KNOW, IF WE GET, WE'D LOVE TO HAVE SOME OF THE BOARD MEMBERS VOLUNTEER THERE AS WELL.

UH, CAUSE THAT OCTOBER 10TH MOVIE IS GOING TO BE A LOT OF MOVING PARTS.

WE'RE HAVING, UH, A CRUISE IN A BOUT FOUR FOOD TRUCKS, YOU KNOW, WE'LL HAVE THE MOVIE SHOW AND, AND EVERYTHING.

SO ANYBODY WHO'S AVAILABLE TO BE THERE, UH, TO ASSIST WITH THAT WOULD BE GOOD.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO I'LL ADJUST THAT.

I DO HAVE THAT AS ONE OF THE DISPOSALS.

UM, YEAH.

OH YEAH.

I'LL CHANGE.

I'LL ADJUST THAT TO THEM AT NIGHT.

OKAY.

ANY QUESTIONS FROM THE FLOOR OR COMMENTS? I'LL START WITH DENNIS.

[00:20:01]

YEAH.

PUMPKIN SOUNDS GOOD.

UH, IN THE FACT THAT IT WILL HELP SPREAD OUT THE CONGESTION I'VE TAUGHT, UH, WITH THE TRUNK RETREAT.

SO THAT'S A GOOD IDEA.

OKAY.

OKAY.

AND AGAIN, WE DON'T KNOW IF THE Y IS DOING IT THIS YEAR YET, SO I'M GONNA WAIT UNTIL CHRIS GETS BACK AND THEN WE'LL ASK THE QUESTION.

RIGHT.

OKAY.

ALL GOOD.

THANKS ALEX.

GOOD IDEA.

TO ME, ONE THING I WAS THINKING WAS LET'S SAY WE DON'T DO A TRUNK OR TREAT.

I REMEMBER WE DID A BONFIRE LAST YEAR.

MAYBE WE DO LIKE A BONFIRE AND WE DO LIKE HOT CHOCOLATE OR SMART OR SOMETHING WITH IT.

IT'S KIND OF LIKE A FALL THEMED EVENTS.

IF WE CAN'T USE THE THREE.

JOSH, DID YOU HAVE SOMETHING? NO.

OKAY.

I'M JUST NODDING MY HEAD IN AGREEMENT.

OKAY.

BLAKE, I'M SORRY.

OKAY.

WHAT'D YOU SAY GLEN? I SAID IT WAS A GREAT IDEA.

OKAY.

MY WIFE.

OKAY, PERFECT.

ALRIGHT.

IF YOU ALREADY MENTIONED DANCING LIKE THIS, BUT I DON'T KNOW.

ANOTHER AVENUE YOU COULD EXPLORE IS TO DO A, LIKE A CONTEST WHERE YOU CAN, UH, JUDGE SOME OF THE PUMPKINS YOU COULD HAVE LIKE AGE GROUPS OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

UM, IT'S SOMETHING ELSE TO EXPLORE MAYBE.

OKAY.

I LIKED THE WHOLE CONCEPT AND, AND BLAKE'S SUGGESTION IS LIKE AN IDEA OF HAVING A CONTEST TO GET THE COMMUNITY INVOLVED AND GET A, IT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.

THE ONLY QUESTION I HAVE IS IF THEY SEEM TO BE SHUTTING DOWN, I KNOW MY, UH, KENTUCKY FRIENDS ARE STARTING TO SHUT DOWN EVERYTHING HALLOWEEN.

SO IS THAT A POSSIBILITY TO BE, UM, CANCELED OR EVERYTHING IS A POSSIBILITY TO BE CANCELED RIGHT NOW? SO WE'VE ALREADY, SOME PEOPLE ARE ALREADY CANCELING EVEN TRICK OR TREAT.

SO YEAH.

I MEAN, IT'S, YOU KNOW, IT'S A DAY TO DAY THING.

WELL, WE'LL FIND OUT AS, AS THINGS GET CLOSER, BUT I MEAN, THAT'S, THAT'S KIND OF THE FLEXIBILITY OF THIS YEAR IS WE DREAM BIG AND, AND HOPE THAT SOMETHING HAPPENS.

SO SOMETHING COMES OF IT.

IF ANYTHING WAS MENTIONED, UM, GOING FORWARD, ANY IDEA, UM, I KNOW THEY WANT TO SHUT DOWN OUR WAY SO PEOPLE DON'T SPEND MONEY ON CANDY AND THINGS LIKE THAT.

SO I WAS JUST WONDERING IF ANYBODY HEARD ANYTHING THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE? NOPE.

YEAH, NO I HAVEN'T.

AND, AND JAY, SO YOU'RE AWARE, YOU KNOW, UM, I GUESS MY GOAL WAS TO GET, YOU KNOW, HELP GET FOLKS OUT OF THE HOUSE.

SO THIS'LL BE, YOU KNOW, IF WE CAN'T GIVE OUT CANDY AND WE CAN'T DO SOMETHING SWEET OR ANY OTHER EVENT LIKE THAT, AND WE CAN DO THE BRIAN THING THOUGH, THE GOAL IS THE, YOU KNOW, JUST TO HAVE THEM OUT THERE AND THEN PEOPLE CAN WALK THE PATH, YOU KNOW, JUST GET OUT OF THE HOUSE FOR A FEW MINUTES.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, AND THEN GO BACK HOME.

UM, AND IF WE DON'T DO IT THIS YEAR, THEN WE HAVE A, MY GOAL IS HAPPY PLAN OR SOMETHING WHEN WRITING.

SO THAT WAY WE KNOW WHAT WE'RE GOING TO DO NEXT YEAR, BECAUSE ULTIMATELY WHAT I WANT TO DO IS BY THE TIME WE GET TO DECEMBER, KNOW WHAT EXACTLY, WHAT PROGRAMS DO YOU DO WE WANT TO DO? AND WHEN DO WE WANT TO TRY AND DO THEM NEXT YEAR? YOU KNOW? SO THAT WAY WE'RE NOT, YOU KNOW, STARTING UP, WE'RE NOT TRYING TO COME WITH IDEAS, YOU KNOW, THROUGHOUT THE YEAR OR THE SEASON BEFORE WE SORT OF HAVE AN IDEA OF WHAT EXACTLY YOU WANT TO DO.

AND WHEN, WHEN, SO WE CAN PLAN FOR IT.

SO IF WE WANT TO DO CONTESTS, THEN THAT WAY IT GIVES US TIME TO HELP, YOU KNOW, GET DONATIONS OR HAVE FOLKS SPONSOR CERTAIN EVENTS, ET CETERA.

UM, SO THEY'LL HAVE IT GIVE US TIME TO PURCHASE SUPPLIES TO IF WE HAVE TO DO THAT.

WELL, I DO KNOW THAT MONTGOMERY COUNTY FELL OFF THE RED, UM, LEVEL TODAY, SO WE READ SO, OKAY.

SO I THINK I GOT, I HAVE EVERYONE.

UM, SO WHAT I WILL DO IS I'M GOING TO CLEAN, CLEAN THIS UP AGAIN, HAVE SOME MORE STUFF TO ADD.

OF COURSE.

AND I'M GOING TO PUT IT IN ANOTHER FORMAT THAT I'M GOING TO SEND IT OUT TO EVERYONE.

IF ANYONE WANTS TO HELP ON THAT, WE'LL USE, YOU KNOW,

[00:25:01]

JUST SHOOT ME AN EMAIL, LET ME KNOW.

UM, AND THEN, OR RAISE YOUR HAND.

UM, AND THEN, UM, UH, THEN WE CAN, THEN WE CAN TALK ABOUT HOW, HOW WE WANT TO PROCEED AT THIS PARTICIPANT.

UM, SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ONE.

THE NEXT ONE IS A PUMPKIN SCAVENGER HUNT.

AND THIS ONE I'M WANTING TO KEEP IT REALLY SIMPLE FOR THIS YEAR.

UM, YOU KNOW, THERE'S A, THERE ARE A COUPLE OF WAYS OF WHICH WE CAN DO.

UM, WE CAN HAVE FOLKS, YOU KNOW, PAINT PUMPKINS THAT WE CAN TAKE THEM.

UM, AND YOU KNOW, A BOARD MEMBER OR VOLUNTEER CAN TAKE THEM AND PUT THEM AROUND THE PARK SYSTEM AND START DROPPING CLUES ON SOCIAL MEDIA ABOUT, YOU KNOW, WHERE THAT PUMPKIN IS.

YOU KNOW, THEN IF SOMEONE FINDS IT, THEY TAKE A PHOTO AND THEY POST IT ON, YOU KNOW, ON FACEBOOK.

AND EVENTUALLY THE GOAL IS NEXT YEAR IS TO ROLL IT TO SOMETHING ELSE WHERE WE COULD DO A GREAT PUMPKIN HUNT.

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE THIS ONE UNIQUE, GOLD PUMPING OR SOMETHING AND YOU GO AND YOU FIND IT, BRING THE PUMPKIN UP TO CITY HALL OR TO A DESIGNATED LOCATION AT A TIME AND YOU GET YOUR PRIZE.

OKAY.

UM, OR WE CAN, YOU KNOW, AND THEN ANOTHER EVENT THAT I WAS THINKING ABOUT WAS, UM, SO DURING A FALL, UM, PUMPKIN SCAVENGER HUNT ACTIVITY, ALMOST LIKE EASTER EGG HUNT WHERE WE FIND THIS SMALL AREA IN THE PARK, IT WOULD PUT A BUNCH OF GOURDS OUT IN THE PARK.

AND THEN WE HAD KIDS COME AND THEY GET A GOURD.

WE'RE GONNA GO TO THE NEXT ACTIVITY.

AND IT COULD BE A PHYSICAL ACTIVITY OF SOME SORT GOING TO GO TO THE NEXT PLACE AND THEN THEY'RE PAINTING AND THEN DO SOMETHING ELSE.

AND THEY SORTA GO THROUGH A COUPLE OF STATIONS UNTIL THEY'RE.

SO THAT ONE WOULD BE A LONGTERM IDEA AND CONCEPT.

UM, BUT, UM, BUT FOR THIS ONE SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS YEAR, I WANT TO KEEP IT SIMPLE.

SO I'M JUST THINKING OF JUST TAKING A COUPLE OF HOARDS, PUTTING THEM OUT IN THE PARK, YOU KNOW, AND HAVING FOLKS, YOU KNOW, GO OUT AND GO PUMPKIN HUNTING WITH THEIR KIDS AND, YOU KNOW, SEE WHAT THEY CAN FIND IN THE PARK AND TAKE PHOTOS, YOU KNOW, SOMETHING FUN FOR FAMILIES TO DO.

SO.

UM, ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS AND THIS TIME I'LL START WITH THE NET? WELL, SINCE WE'RE ALL HAVING TO WEAR A FACE MASK, AND I WAS ALSO THINKING ABOUT THE FARMER'S MARKET, UM, ABOUT DOING SOME TYPE OF CONTEST THAT WOULD INCORPORATE FACE MASK, UM, LIKE THE MOST, UM, DECORATIVE, UM, FACE MASK CONTEST TYPE THING, AND INCORPORATE THE FARMER'S MARKET WHERE THEY CAN MAYBE PURCHASE THEIR GOURDS OR THEIR GUNS OR THAT TYPE OF THING.

AND THEN, UM, YOU KNOW, GET PEOPLE TO COME INTO THE FARMER'S MARKET.

YEAH.

AND TO INCORPORATE IT, YOU KNOW, WITH THE HUT SOME WAY.

SO IT WOULD TRY TO GET PEOPLE TO COME INTO THE FARMER'S MARKET AND THEN GO FROM THERE, KINDA INCORPORATE THE FACE MASK THING AND THE PUMPKINS AND THE FARMER'S MARKET AND THE PUMPKIN SCAVENGER HUNT.

OKAY.

OKAY.

UM, GLEN, NO, I LIKE IT MYSELF.

I THINK IT'S A WAY OF GETTING EVERYBODY AROUND THESE DIFFERENT PARKS, GETTING THE COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT.

SORRY, JAY.

NO, I'M GOOD.

SOUNDS GOOD TO ME.

OKAY, BLAKE.

NOPE.

I LIKE IT.

UM, MY ONLY SUGGESTION IS THEY DON'T HAVE TO, INSTEAD OF LIKE REMOVING SOMETHING AND BRINGING IT TO THE SCAVENGER THAT MAYBE WE JUST HAVE THEM HASHTAG SOMETHING AND THEN THEY CAN POST LIKE A PICTURE OF IT.

MAYBE IT'S EVEN LIKE WE HAVE ONE AT EACH PARK, EVERYTHING GET THEIR, A PICTURE OF THEMSELVES WITH A PARTICULAR THING AT THAT PARK.

IF THEY HIT LIKE 10 OUT OF 10 OR SOMETHING, THAT'S ONE THING WE DID, WHATEVER, YOU KNOW, ALEX, UH, NO COMMENT.

SOUND GOOD TO ME.

OKAY.

RIGHT.

AGAIN, THEN JUST DISCRETE IDEAS.

I THINK THE MORE THAT YOU OFFER, THE MORE, I MEAN, INACTIVITY ACTIVITY MAY NOT BE OF INTEREST TO SOMEBODY, WHATEVER THAT IS, BUT HERE YOU'RE BROADENING THAT AND JUST GIVING THEM MORE OPTIONS OF THINGS TO PARTICIPATE IN.

SO I THINK YOU'RE, YOU'RE, YOU'RE SPOT ON AND RIGHT ON THE RIGHT TRACK AND THAT'S YEAH.

I LIKE THE SCAVENGER HUNTING AND SOUNDED LIKE A LOT OF FUN FOR THE KIDS AND THINGS THEY CAN DO WITHOUT BEING IN A LARGE SOCIAL GROUP.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT, SIR.

OKAY.

YEAH.

SO JUST, UM, I LOVE THE SCAVENGER HUNT IDEA AND I THINK WE ALL JUST NEED TO BE, TO REMEMBER THAT,

[00:30:01]

YOU KNOW, IF WE HIDE 12 PUMPKINS OR GOURDS, THERE, THERE MAY BE SEVEN OF THEM TO ACTUALLY FIND, FIND BETWEEN CRITTERS AND BASEBALL BATS.

RIGHT.

SOME OF THEM ARE GOING TO DISAPPEAR.

CORRECT.

SO, YOU KNOW, SETTING A 10 OUT OF 10 GOAL MAY NOT BE THE EASIEST AND WE MAY NEED REPLACEMENTS FOR SOME, BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, I THINK ANY OF US THAT HAVE SMALL KIDS AT HOME OR GRANDKIDS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT, I MEAN, I THINK IT'S A GREAT OPPORTUNITY IF WE JUST TAKE THEM INTO OUR HOUSES AND PAINT THEM OURSELVES, UM, YOU KNOW, IT'S A GREAT FAMILY ACTIVITY WE CAN DO.

AND THEN, YOU KNOW, LIKE I SAID, DROP THEM OFF AND VINCE AND I, OR SARAH AND I, OR SOMEBODY GO AROUND AND FIND DIFFERENT PLACES TO HIDE THEM.

UM, AND I LIKE WHAT CHRIS SAID, YOU KNOW, FIND A HASHTAG OR, OR A WAY FOR PEOPLE WHEN THEY FIND THEM, TAKE A PICTURE POSTED ON SOCIAL MEDIA OR IN GLENN'S CASE A POLAROID AND PUT IT IN THE MAIL.

UM, AND, UH, YOU KNOW, WE'LL SEE IT WHEN WE SEE IT, BUT, UH, I LOVE THE IDEA AND I THINK IT'S SOMETHING WE CAN START SMALL SCALE THIS YEAR AND MOVE INTO SOMETHING BIGGER NEXT YEAR, FOR SURE.

OKAY.

SO WHAT I'LL DO EVERYONE, I WILL CLEAN THAT UP AS WELL, SCALE IT BACK, KEEP IT SIMPLE.

AND THEN I WILL SEND IT OUT TO EVERYONE, SEND IT OVER TO JOSH AND SARAH, UH, FOR THEIR, UH, UH, CONCEPT AND APPROVAL.

AND THEN WE'LL GET GOING IN THE STORE ADVERTISING WE'LL LOOK FOR BOARDS AND STUFF AS WELL.

OKAY.

ALRIGHT.

SO WE'LL GO ONTO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM HERE.

AND IT'S A SURVEY.

UM, SO I KNOW THAT WE DID THE MASTER PLAN A COUPLE OF YEARS AGO, SO WE KNOW IT CAME FROM THE MASTER PLAN AND WHAT THE CITIZENS WANT TO SEE WITHIN THE PARKS.

SO MY THOUGHT WAS TO, UM, BECAUSE OF COLGATE, UM, I WANTED TO GET, I WANTED TO GET YOU ALL'S IDEA OR THOUGHTS, UM, ON ME WORKING WITH SARAH AND JOSH TO SEE IF WE CAN DO WHAT END OF SEASON SURVEY OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS ON WHAT PEOPLE THOUGHT ABOUT THE PARKS, THE IMPROVEMENTS THAT WE'VE BEEN DOING AND WHAT, WHAT THEY WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN THE PARKS WHEN IT COMES TO PROGRAMMING IN THE FUTURE.

BECAUSE I THINK THAT WOULD HELP US, YOU KNOW, DEVELOP THE RIGHT IDEAS.

SOME COMMUNITY MEMBERS WANT TO DO LISTS DIFFERENT SOMETHING OUT FROM SCRATCH.

SO, UM, UH, SO I WANT TO HEAR AND SEE WHAT YOU ALL THINK ABOUT THAT.

UM, DENNIS.

YEAH, WELL, I PERSONALLY CAN'T WAIT UNTIL THEY GET THE BIKE PARK AND I THOUGHT, I THINK THAT BIKE PARK IS GOING TO BE PHENOMENAL.

OKAY.

RON, LET ME GET OFF MUTE THERE.

SORRY ABOUT THAT.

YEAH, I THINK, UM, YOU KNOW, JUST, UH, IT'S KIND OF, UM, YOU KNOW, A CATCH 22, I, YOU KNOW, I'M GLAD YOU'RE GOING TO GO BACK TWO YEARS JEFF'S VERSUS THIS YEAR, BECAUSE YOU KNOW, PEOPLE WERE KIND OF HOMEBOUND WITH, WITH COVID AND EVERYTHING.

AND I MEAN, WE WERE JUST TALKING IN THE OFFICE.

THIS WAS MY FIRST DAY BACK IN THE OFFICE TODAY AFTER WORKING REMOTELY ALL THIS TIME AND PEOPLE CAN'T, YOU KNOW, WHERE DID THE SUMMER GROW? YOU KNOW, WE WERE KIND OF, YOU COULDN'T DO ANYTHING.

SO I THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO GO BACK TO TWO YEARS AND, UH, YOU KNOW, JUST GAUGE THEIR, THEIR THOUGHTS AND THEIR INTEREST IN.

HOPEFULLY WE'LL GIVE SOME, UH, SOME GOOD FEEDBACK AND WE'LL GET SOME GOOD IDEAS.

OKAY.

AND SO I CAN CLARIFY A LITTLE BIT, I'M NOT LOOKING TO DO A BIG, I MEAN, IT'S A SMALL SURVEY, RIGHT.

AND THE USER SURVEY, WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS? YOU KNOW, WHAT DO YOU WANT TO SEE? YOU KNOW, SO I'M HOPING TO GET POSITIVE REVIEWS FROM THAT.

UM, BUT, UM, YOU KNOW, FOR ME, FOR THE NINE OF US, I WANT TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CONTINUE TO PROVIDE SERVICES OR PROGRAMS OR DEVELOP PROGRAMS THAT THE COMMUNITY WANTS.

AND EVEN THOUGH, UH, JOSH AND WE ARE WORKING ON THE MASTER PLAN, WE'VE DONE A NUMBER OF THINGS THAT ARE IN THE MASTER PLAN.

I SORTA LIKE GET FEEDBACK FROM FOLKS.

SO IT WILL BE A SOCIAL MEDIA.

UM, LIKE, IS THERE SOME WAY THAT YOU CAN THE MASTER PLAN, UH, OUT OR IS THAT SOMETHING THAT WE HAVE ACTUALLY YEAH, IT'S ON THE, UM, THE CITY WEBSITE, BUT I WILL SEND THAT TO YOU.

UM, SO THAT WAY YOU HAVE IT.

OKAY.

AND I NEED TO ALSO SEND YOU THE PRIORITY LIST FROM LAST YEAR AS WELL.

OKAY, AWESOME.

OKAY, CHRIS? NO, I THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA.

I MEAN, ANYTIME YOU GET A SURVEY, IT'D BE NICE TO GET FEEDBACK ON.

I THINK WE'VE DONE A LOT OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS.

IT'D BE NICE TO GET THE FEEDBACK ON WHAT'S BEING NOTICED AND THEY WANT US TO WORK ON IT.

OKAY, ALEX.

YEAH.

CLARIFY AGAIN, HOW YOU WERE GOING TO PICK THE QUICKEST BUTTON TO SURVEY

[00:35:03]

THINKING, WELL, I WAS GOING TO POST IT ON, WELL, MY INITIAL THOUGHT RIGHT NOW IS THE POSTING ON OUR FACEBOOK PAGE AND THEN WORK WITH THE CITY, UM, SARAH AND JOSH TO MAKE SURE WE GET THE QUESTIONS, THE RIGHT QUESTIONS.

UM, AND THEN ALSO HAVE THE CITY PUSH IT OUT AS WELL.

AND THEN IF WE, FOR THOSE THAT AREN'T ON SOCIAL MEDIA, PERHAPS WE CAN PARTNER WITH, UM, THE Y TO DO A HAND SURVEY OF SOME SORT, AND THEN I CAN COME IN, BUY AND PICK UP THE BOX OR WHATEVER.

UM, BUT I JUST WANT TO TRY AND SOME FEEDBACK FROM FOLKS ABOUT THE SERVICES AND AMENITIES THAT WE, THE PARTS OF RECREATION FOR THE PARKS MANAGER, UM, ARE ALSO A, AND THE THINGS THAT WE'VE DONE OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS.

SO I'LL USE WHATEVER PLATFORM WE HAVE AVAILABLE.

UM, BUT I JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE WE GET THE MOST, UM, RESPONSE.

I THINK IT'S A GOOD IDEA TO HAVE A SURVEY.

I THINK WE'RE GOING TO GET A LOT OF RESPONSE, ESPECIALLY ON THIS DOG PARK, DOWN THE STREET HERE.

UM, I THINK THAT'S BEEN THE MOST ACTIVE PLACE IN HUBER.

UM, AND I JUST, UM, THINK THAT YOU'LL GET A LOT OF RESPONSE BACK THROUGH THERE.

OKAY.

I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA.

I THINK THE THING THAT KEEPS COMING UP THAT I KEEP HEARING IS EACH OF THE LITTLE PROJECTS, LIKE THE DOG PART THAT AFFECTS A CERTAIN NUMBER OF PEOPLE.

AND I THINK ABOUT THE PLAYGROUNDS THAT WE'VE HAD INSTALLED.

IT HELPS WHEN YOU MAKE UP, I CALL IT, I CALL IT A MOTIVATOR TO GIVE YOU ON GIVE IDEAS.

SOME OF THE THINGS THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN ACCOMPLISHED, I THINK THAT WOULD PUSH THE PEOPLE IN THE REALLY GOING AT IT AND MAYBE GREAT IDEA.

OKAY.

COPY.

THANK YOU.

AND, UM, JAKE, I THINK A SURVEY IS A GOOD IDEA.

IT GIVES YOU AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE WHAT PEOPLE LIKE AND NEGATIVE FEEDBACK IS ALWAYS SOMETIMES GOOD TO JUST SO YOU KNOW WHAT DIDN'T FLOAT WHEN DIDN'T FLY, WHAT DIDN'T SIT WELL.

UM, I KNOW WHEN I WOULD POST IN DOG PARK PICTURES, FOR INSTANCE, 98% POSITIVE, ONE GUY JUST KEPT GOING ON ABOUT THE FENCE AND WOULDN'T LET IT GO.

SO THOSE NEGATIVE COMMENTS WILL HAPPEN, BUT IT'S PART OF THE PROCESS.

SO I THINK SOMETIMES NEGATIVE FEEDBACK WILL ALSO LET YOU SEE WALKING THE IMPROVEMENT.

OKAY.

AND THEN I'LL GO TO MY, A PARTS MANAGER.

JOSH.

YEAH.

UM, I THINK ONE IMPORTANT QUESTION ON THERE, UM, IS, UH, MAYBE LISTING SOME OF THE NEW AMENITIES AND SOME OF THE ACTIVITIES THAT WE DID AND ASKING PEOPLE IN ONE OF THOSE CASES, WHAT OF THESE WERE YOU AWARE OF OR HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THESE EVENTS OR DID YOU ATTEND THESE EVENTS AND THEN ALSO GIVE THEM THE OPTION OF SAYING I HAD NO IDEA BECAUSE, UH, YOU KNOW, THAT'S OBVIOUSLY GOING TO BE AN ANSWER STILL, BUT, UM, ONE IMPORTANT THING TO VINCE IS A LOT OF THIS SURVEY STUFF IS KIND OF PART OF SARAH'S JOB AS WELL.

SO IT MAY BE SOMETHING WE CAN, WE CAN PASS ON AND, AND HAVE HER DO AND, AND, AND GIVE THE DATA TO US.

UM, AND THEN SHE MAY HAVE OTHER AVENUES AS WELL TO COLLECT THAT INFORMATION THAT WE'RE UNAWARE OF.

OKAY.

AND THEN IT'S SARAH STILL ON? YEAH.

I'M STILL HERE.

OKAY.

YEAH.

SO DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING FOR THAT? YEAH, SO REALLY PART OF MY ROLE WITH THE CITY IS ALSO THERE'S, IT'S BEEN A WHILE SINCE WE HAVE DONE A CITIZEN SURVEY.

UM, SO THAT IS ON MY, MY BIG PLAN.

AND SO THAT RESEARCH HAS ALREADY STARTED, SO IT WOULD INCLUDE THINGS LIKE, YOU KNOW, WHAT DO YOU THINK, THINK OF THE PARK AMENITIES AND SPECIFIC QUESTIONS THAT DRILL DOWN INTO THAT.

AND THEN, UM, IT WOULD BE A SAMPLE OF THE COMMUNITIES.

SO IT WOULD BE DESIGNATED, YOU KNOW, ENCOMPASSING THE ENTIRE AREA, AGE, DEMOGRAPHICS, THE WHOLE KITTEN CABOODLE.

UM, AND THEN THAT WOULD GIVE US GOOD INFORMATION FOR EACH ONE OF THE BOARDS AND COMMISSIONS, AS IT RELATES TO SERVICES, AMENITIES, THINGS THAT WANT PEOPLE TO LIVE, WORK AND PLAY HERE IN HEBER.

OKAY.

AND DO YOU KNOW WHEN THAT'S, WHEN YOU, WHAT DO YOU HAVE A TARGET? SO MY TARGET IS HOPEFULLY TO THE TIMELINE FOR THE ONE PLACE THAT I WAS LOOKING AT TODAY.

IT TYPICALLY TAKES FROM DAY ONE TO THE END.

IT'S ABOUT

[00:40:01]

A 16 WEEK PROCESS.

UM, CAUSE THEY, THEY DO A LOT OF THAT DATA AND DATA ANALYTICS.

UM, AND THEN THAT ALSO GOES WITH THE INPUT THAT WE, WE START TO PUSH INTO THERE AS WELL FOR THEM TO DO THE RESEARCH AND, AND PULL THE SAMPLING AND THEN DO IT, UM, CAUSE IT WOULD BE ALSO DIGITAL AND UH, IN PERSON BECAUSE NOT EVERYBODY IS ON SOCIAL MEDIA.

SO, SO I WOULD HOPE TO HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THAT COMPLETED AT LEAST MAYBE JUNE OF NEXT YEAR.

UM, BECAUSE THEN THAT WAY WE CAN CONTINUE TO LONGTERM PLAN FOR THE NEXT COUPLE OF YEARS.

OKAY.

DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD HOLD OFF ON GOING TO A SMALL ONE? UM, I MEAN, IT'S YOUR CALL? I MEAN YOU CAN EASILY DO ONE.

UM, I WOULD PROBABLY, YEAH.

I MEAN, IT'S PRETTY EASY TO KIND OF DO ONE KIND OF LIKE THAT.

IT MIGHT BE HARD TO DO SOMETHING ALONG THE LINES OF AN IN PERSON VERSUS THE, THE DIGITAL SURVEY.

CAUSE IT'S, IT'S KIND OF EASIER TO DO SO I'M HAPPY, HAPPY TO HELP WITH THAT ANYWAY.

OKAY.

AWESOME.

THANK YOU.

OKAY.

OKAY.

SO I'M JUST, OKAY, SO THEN WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM HERE.

ADDITIONAL BUSINESS.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY ADDITIONAL BUSINESS OR TOPICS OR ANNOUNCEMENTS AND I'LL START WITH ALEX.

SO YOU SAID, NO.

CHRIS, ARE YOU STILL LOOKING FOR LIKE OTHER PROGRAMMING THROUGHOUT THE WINTER? SURE.

I'M LOOKING FOR ANYTHING.

OKAY.

OKAY.

I HAD SOME IDEAS OF ME.

I'LL JUST SEND AN EMAIL OUT OR SOMETHING WITH LIKE AFTER I GET SOME IDEAS DOWN.

OKAY.

YEAH.

WALDEN KNOW A VAN STORY ABOUT THAT.

NO PROBLEM.

OKAY, RON.

OH, GOOD DENNIS.

AND THEN NOT AT THIS TIME.

NO JAY, NO, NOTHING ADDITIONAL ENGLAND.

NO SIR.

OKAY.

SO I DO HAVE ONE.

UM, SO ONE OF THE THINGS THAT, UM, YOU KNOW, THIS YEAR HAS BEEN A UNIQUE YEAR WITH COVID-19 AND ALL THE ACTIVITIES THAT WE'VE HAD, UM, STARTING FROM LAST YEAR TO THIS YEAR.

SO, UM, I KNOW THAT SARAH IS PART OF THIS AND SARAH IS AS WELL, BUT I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ALL ABOUT, UM, ALLOWING ME TO WORK WITH SARAH, UM, AND OTHERS TO TRY AND SEE IF WE CAN FIND, UH, A GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS TO HELP WITH SOME OF THESE ACTIVITIES THAT WE WANT TO PUT ON OR, AND HAVE THEM, UH, YOU KNOW, WORK THOSE ACTIVITIES, DEVELOP THEM, UH, VOLUNTEER TO SUPPORT, YOU KNOW, AN ATTENDING, YOU KNOW, HELP HIM OUT THINGS.

SO, UM, I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I'D GET YOU.

ALL'S OKAY TO WORK WITH SARAH AND JOSH ON THAT.

UM, I THINK IT'S KEY THAT WE HAVE A, YOU KNOW, A CORE GROUP OF VOLUNTEERS THAT ARE INTERESTED IN SEEING ACTIVITIES WITHIN THE PARTY, BUT ARE ALSO INTERESTED IN HOPING TO PUT THEM ON AS WELL.

UM, SO THAT WAY IT'S NOT JUST US, IT'S NOT JUST JOSH, IT'S NOT JUST SARAH, BUT WE HAVE A GROUP OF RESIDENTS OR, UM, COMMUNITY LEADERS, UM, WHO WE CAN COUNT ON TO HELP PUT THAT STUFF TOGETHER.

AND THEN THAT WAY WE CAN GET A GROUP OF, I LIST THE PEOPLE THAT WE CAN COUNT ON.

SO, UM, I WANTED TO GET YOUR, UM, YOUR OPINION ON THAT AND TO GET YOUR GREEN LIGHT, UM, TO MAKE SURE IT'S OKAY FOR ME TO WORK WITH THEM TO DO THAT.

AND THEN I CAN PROVIDE YOU ALL WITH FEEDBACK AS WE START COLLECTING THAT INFORMATION.

UH, WE'LL START WITH ALEX AND GETTING THE COMMUNITY INVOLVED IS A GREAT IDEA.

OKAY, CHRIS, YOU'RE ON MUTE.

SORRY.

I SAID, UH, I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA TOO.

I THINK IT'S TOUGH SOMETIMES FOR US TO ALWAYS VOLUNTEER AND I KNOW JOSH YOU'VE BEEN RUNNING A LOT OF THINGS.

IT'D BE GREAT TO HAVE SOME OTHER PEOPLE WE CAN LEAN ON GREEN LIGHT.

AND RON, I AGREE WITH YOU, CHRIS, THAT JUST HARD TO DO, UM, AND PARTICIPATE IN HELP IN ALL THE ACTIVITIES THAT ARE THERE.

SO I THINK THAT TO BRING IN MORE PEOPLE, I THINK.

YEAH.

OKAY DENNIS.

YEAH.

MORE THE MERRIER GLEN, I THINK IT'S, I THINK IT'S ABOUT TIME.

YOU COME UP WITH A GOOD, GOOD IDEA.

LIKE THAT DANCE, NATURAL PARK HAS BEEN DOING IT FOR A LONG TIME AND IF

[00:45:01]

YOU NEED ANY HELP THERE ON HOW TO DO IT, THEY MIGHT BE GIVE IT TO YOU.

OKAY.

THANKS.

GO AHEAD.

I THINK IT'S A GREAT IDEA OF EVENTS.

OKAY.

AND JAKE, I THINK THAT'S ACTUALLY WHY THERE MAY BE AN OPPORTUNITY TO GET SOME PEOPLE WHO ALREADY VOLUNTEER A LOT INVOLVED TOO, LIKE CHURCHES.

EXACTLY.

SO, OKAY, GREAT.

SO WHAT I'LL DO IS, OH, GO AHEAD.

NO, I SAID WITH THE CHURCHES IS GREAT.

OKAY.

SO WHAT I'LL DO IS, UM, I'LL START REACHING OUT TO SARAH AND JOSH AND WE'LL START TALKING AND THEN, UM, I'LL PROVIDE YOU GUYS FEEDBACK ON, ON, UH, ON THE WAY FORWARD AND WHAT WE'RE DOING AND THEN, UM, I'LL KEEP YOU ALL IN THE LOOP ON THAT.

SO, UM, THANKS AGAIN.

ALL RIGHT.

SO, UM, MOVE ON TO THE NEXT ITEM APPROVAL OF MINUTES.

UM, HAS EVERYONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO REVIEW THE MINUTES? OKAY.

SO I SEE THAT IN THE WORST INSTANCE.

OKAY.

SO, UM, OTHER THAN SOME SMALL, UM, BUILDING CHANGES AND SYSTEM CHANGES, IF THERE ARE NO OBJECTIONS ON THE MINUTES, THEY WILL BE APPROVED AS WRITTEN.

ARE THERE ANY OBJECTIONS, VINCE, JUST A REAL QUICK POINT POINT OF ORDER.

UM, AND I KNOW YOU SAID THERE WAS SOME SMALL EDITS AND EVERYTHING, BUT IN, UH, UNDER THE OLD BUSINESS, UM, PART B I KNOW JOSH EARLIER SAID THAT THE, UM, FARMER'S MARKET IS FROM 10 TO 12 OR 10 TO TWO IN THE MINUTES.

IT HAS 10 TO 12.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF THAT, THAT WEEK OR THAT TIME WE TALKED ABOUT IT.

THAT WAS THE TIME.

UM, OR IF IT IS 10 TO TWO.

SO THAT WAS JUST SOMETHING THAT JUMPED OUT AT ME.

AND THEN ON YOUR UP AND COMING MEETINGS ON THE FINAL PAGE, YOU HAVE AUGUST THE 19TH AND OUR NEXT MEETING SHOULD BE OF COURSE TODAY.

SO JUST MINOR STUFF.

YEP.

NOPE.

NOT A PROBLEM, BUT WE WILL DO IS, UM, I WILL HOLD OFF ON IMPROVING THESE MINUTES.

AND THEN, UM, NEXT MONTH, THE THIRD THURSDAYS ARE MEETING.

UM, I WILL, UM, HAVE YOU GUYS REVIEW THEM AGAIN AND THEN WE'LL APPROVE THEM AT THAT TIME.

SO THE NEXT MEETING THAT WE HAVE FOR UPCOMING, SEPTEMBER 17TH, 2020 AT 6:30 PM, IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO MAKE THAT MEETING, PLEASE LET ME KNOW.

I'LL TRY AND REMEMBER TO SEND OUT AN EMAIL AND, AND AGAIN, UM, THE MEETING, UNLESS THINGS CHANGE, UM, THE MEETINGS WILL BE VIRTUAL.

UM, AND TO MAKE SURE YOU SAVE THE LINK THAT JOSH OR I SENT YOU TODAY, SAVE THAT TO YOUR CALENDAR OR IN YOUR EMAIL.

AND YOU CAN USE THAT TO ACCESS THE MEETING NEXT MONTH BECAUSE IT IS SET UP AS A REOCCURRING MEETING.

OKAY.

ARE THERE ANY QUESTIONS ON THAT, DENNIS? NO.

BLAKE, NOPE.

NOPE.

WELL, I WANT TO KNOW HOW I GET ANYBODY TO GO TO CHRIS' HOUSE WITH THAT, BUT WHILE THE SIGN IN THE BACKGROUND THERE, NO, SIR.

YAY.

NO.

AND COMING OUT TONIGHT AND MEETING TONIGHT OR VIRTUALLY, UM, AND SO, UH, I WILL KEEP YOU ALL UPDATED ON ANY NEW EVENTS, YOU KNOW, ANY NEW ANNOUNCEMENTS OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.
