UM, BOTH OF OUR SUNDAY CONCERTS WERE VERY POORLY ATTENDED.

SO, UH, NEXT YEAR WE PROBABLY WILL NOT DO ANYTHING DAY EVENTS.

UM, ONE OF THEM WAS THE SUNDAY THAT SCHOOL BACK AND THE OTHER WAS LABOR DAY WEEKEND.

SO I DON'T KNOW IF EITHER OF THOSE WERE FACTORS OF WHY THEY WERE POORLY ATTENDED OR IF THEY WERE JUST POORLY ATTENDED BECAUSE THEY WERE SUNDAYS.

UM, NICK IS NOW JOINING.

HEY THERE, CHRIS, I CAN HEAR YOU.

ALL RIGHT.

GOOD.

WE GOT YOU.

UM, SHOWED ME UNMUTED THE WHOLE TIME.

I DON'T KNOW.

UM, AS FAR AS OTHER, UM, THINGS IN THE PARKS, THE FARMER'S MARKET IS, IS DOING EXTREMELY WELL.

UH, WE CONTINUE TO GROW AND, AND GET MORE AND MORE VISITORS EACH WEEK.

UM, WE DID, UH, FINALLY FINISH UP BELLE PLAINE.

EVERYTHING'S DONE THEY'RE UP AND RUNNING.

ALL SIDEWALKS ARE DONE, JUST WAITING FOR THE GRASS TO GROW NOW, UH, WHERE WE BACK-FILLED AROUND EVERYTHING.

AND, UH, NEXT WEEK THEY'RE GOING TO START PUTTING IN, UM, HAND SANITIZER STATIONS AT ALL THE PLAYGROUNDS.

WE ORDERED THOSE.

AND, UH, THEY THEY'LL JUST BE A POST WITH A BOX, WITH A BOTTLE INSIDE OF IT.

THAT'S SUPPOSED TO BE TAMPER-PROOF SO PEOPLE CAN'T GET IN IT AND STEAL THE JUG, BUT, UH, WE'LL HAVE THOSE UP UNTIL PROBABLY ABOUT THE END OF OCTOBER AND THEN WE'LL GO EMPTY THEM ALL OUT, JUST CAUSE WE DON'T WANT THEM TO FREEZE AND THINGS.

[00:05:03]

OKAY.

DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS FOR JOSH, JOSH? WOULD THAT BE POSSIBILITY TO KEEP THOSE FULL OR DO THE MAINTAIN THOSE AS WELL? YEAH, I, UM, WHEN I PURCHASED THOSE, I ALSO PURCHASED 20 GALLONS OF PFIZER.

UM, SO WE CAN KEEP THOSE FULL AND UM, WE'LL SEE, YOU KNOW, NEXT YEAR WHEN WE ORDER PARK SUPPLIES, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND ORDER A GALLON JUGS TO REFILL THOSE WITH AS THE YEAR GOES ON AND JUST KIND OF SEE HOW THEY DO AND HOW MANY TOTAL WERE THERE.

I BOUGHT 10, WE'RE PUTTING UP EIGHT AND WE'LL HAVE A COUPLE EXTRAS.

I'M NOT PUTTING ONE AT BELT OR AT, UM, MIAMI VILLA OR AT TWIN CREEKS.

UM, BUT THERE'LL BE AT ALL THE OTHER PARKS IN THE CLOUD.

WE'LL HAVE ONE AT EACH PLAYGROUND.

UM, AND THEN COTTONWOOD, SINCE THE PLAYGROUNDS ARE CLOSE ENOUGH TOGETHER, THEY'RE TECHNICALLY SEPARATE.

IT WILL BE RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THEM.

OKAY.

WE HAVE A COUPLE OF EXTRAS JUST IN CASE WE GET A BROKEN ONE OR IF WE DETERMINE THE OTHER LOCATION WE NEEDED A YEAH.

AND FOR THOSE WHO HAVEN'T BEEN TO THE FARMER'S MARKET, I'D HIGHLY ENCOURAGE YOU ALL TO GO LAST WEEK WAS A VERY WELL ATTENDED, UM, GREAT BAND.

UM, A LOT OF NEW PEOPLE STILL WHO'VE, UH, NOT HEARD THAT WE WERE HAVING THE FARMER'S MARKET UP THERE, UM, AT THE AMPHITHEATER.

SO THEY WERE VERY EXCITED, UM, A LOT OF POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM IT, UM, DRAWS.

SO WE HAVE A BAND THIS WEEKEND.

OH, WE DON'T HAVE A BAND.

WE DO JUST HAVE ONE MUSICIAN THIS WEEKEND.

HE WAS PART OF THE BAND THAT WE HAD TO CANCEL IN MAY AS PART OF THE SUMMER MUSIC SERIES.

SO HE'S GOING TO COME SATURDAY AND PLAY FOR TWO HOURS AT THE FARMER'S MARKET.

OKAY, PERFECT.

OKAY.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR JOSH AND JOSH? DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING ON THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT? I DO.

YEAH, I HAVE IT SITTING HERE.

WHAT, UH, WHAT SPECIFICALLY DID YOU WANT ME TO GO OVER ON THAT VINCE? SO ANYTHING THAT WAS ON THE PRIORITY LIST BEFORE, LIKE THE BIG ITEMS, NEW PLAYGROUND, WE HAVE WON PROGRAMS. UM, ANY OF THE BIG ITEMS, NOT ANYTHING LIKE ANY OF THE SMALL THINGS LIKE REPLACING TREES OR ANYTHING LIKE THAT.

SO, UM, FOR NEXT YEAR, UM, OUR TWO BIGGEST PROJECTS THAT ARE BUDGETED FOR NEXT YEAR.

ONE IS, UH, THE WALK PATHS AT CLOUD PARK.

UH, WE DID RECEIVE A GRANT FROM MVR PC, UM, AND SO ONCE, JANUARY ROLLS AROUND, WE'LL PUT THAT OUT FOR BID AND, UH, WE'LL SEE HOW THAT'S GONNA GO.

BUT, UH, WE HAVEN'T BEEN OUT FOR, I THINK LOOKING AT MY THING HERE, IT'S A TOTAL OF IF THEY DO EVERY BIT OF IT, IT'S LIKE JUST OVER TWO MILES OF WALK TRAILS, SO WE'LL HAVE ALL OF IT.

UM, REFRESHED AND REDONE IS AS BEST WE CAN, SOME AREAS THAT WE'LL BE ABLE TO GRIND, THEY'LL JUST HAVE TO OVERLAY.

BUT, UM, SO THAT'S, THAT'S ONE OF OUR BIG PROJECTS FOR NEXT YEAR AND THEN THE OTHER BEING, UH, THE DIAL PARK, UH, PROJECT, DEPENDING ON, UH, THE GRANT ANNOUNCEMENT IN OCTOBER.

MMM LET'S SEE WHAT ELSE WE GOT FOR AN EXTRA YEAR.

UH, THE PARKING LOT AT CLOUD BY THE VETERANS MEMORIAL THAT WOULD GET REDONE, UM, PUSHING INTO 2022 ON THE CAPITAL IMPROVEMENT.

WE DO HAVE A BUDGETED FOR ANOTHER, UH, LARGE PLAY STRUCTURE, UM, AND SURFACING MORE THAN LIKELY THAT WILL BE PROBABLY SHELL GATE.

UM, IT, I THINK IS OUR NEXT OLDEST PLAYGROUND.

IT'S APPROACHING 21 YEARS OLD, I THINK.

UM, AND THEN AGAIN AT 2024, WE HAVE THAT IN AS WELL.

AND THEN THAT ONE WILL PROBABLY GO, UH, GARY SHERMAN OR, UH, COTTONWOOD THEY'RE ABOUT THE SAME AGE.

UH, LET'S SEE HERE, UH, AGAIN, IN 2023, WE HAVE MORE MONEY BUDGETED FOR DIAL PARK TO FINISH OUT THE PHASES THERE.

AND, UH, I THINK THAT'S REALLY THE, ALL THE BIG STUFF.

OH, AT 22 AND 24, WE DO HAVE, UM, MONEY, UM, AND THE BUDGET OR, BUT BEING BUDGETED FOR, UH, BASKETBALL COURTS AND, UH, TENNIS COURTS SLASH PICKLEBALL COURT MAINTENANCE.

UM, FOR THOSE FOR 20, FOR TWO, FOR 22 AND FOR 24 AS WELL.

OKAY.

DOES THAT INCLUDE INSTALLING THE BASKETBALL COURTS ON THE NORTH SIDE? NOPE.

THAT'LL JUST BE RESURFACED IN WHAT WE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR.

JOHN'S

[00:10:03]

MOVE BACK UP TO CHRIS.

CAN YOU HEAR, I COULD HEAR YOU THE WHOLE TIME.

I JUST COULDN'T TALK.

OH BOY.

OKAY.

ALRIGHT.

SO, UM, KROGER AQUATIC CENTER UPDATE, UM, HAD A VERY, UH, DIFFERENT YEAR THAN I THOUGHT.

UM, BACK AT THE BEGINNING, YOU KNOW, JANUARY, UM, WE DID DO SOME REALLY GOOD THINGS.

UM, WE SERVED 27,413 PEOPLE WITH DAILY PASSES.

UM, GRANTED YOU, IF YOU THINK BACK, WE DIDN'T START UNTIL AFTER MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND.

SO WE WERE THAT FIRST FULL MONDAY IN JUNE.

UM, WE SOLD 456 MEMBERSHIPS, UM, WHICH WE'RE CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF, UM, RENEWING RIGHT NOW, UM, SARAH WITH THE CITY.

UM, WE DID SOME POSTCARD MAILERS THAT WENT OUT AND WE'VE HAD A STEADY FLOW OF PEOPLE COMING IN TO RENEW THEIR MEMBERSHIP FOR NEXT YEAR.

UM, I DON'T KNOW THAT EXACT NUMBER, HOW MANY THAT HAVE RENEWED, BUT I WILL, I WILL GET A NUMBER FOR YOU GUYS AND EMAIL THAT OUT TO THE EVENTS SO YOU CAN LET THE GROUP KNOW.

OKAY.

UM, LAST YEAR WE ONLY HAD 333 MEMBERSHIPS THAT WE SOLD FOR THE WHOLE YEAR.

SO WE'RE LOOKING AT ABOUT 123 MORE MEMBERSHIPS.

UM, WE DID 6,645 SCANS, UH, IN 2019.

UM, WE DID 9,083 SCANS, UM, THIS YEAR.

SO MORE MEMBERS, UM, MORE MEMBERSHIP SCANS THAN IN YEARS PAST.

UM, A COUPLE OF THINGS THAT WE DID DIFFERENT THIS YEAR THAT WE HAVEN'T DONE IN THE PAST IS MONDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS WE'RE PASS HOLDERS AND CITY RESIDENTS ONLY.

SO WE DID NOT TAKE ANY ANYBODY OUTSIDE, UM, UH, YOU KNOW, THE CITY LIMITS, UH, HERE IN HUBER.

UM, AND THEN TUESDAYS, THURSDAYS, FRIDAYS, SATURDAYS, AND SUNDAYS FROM 12 TO ONE WAS PASS HOLDERS AND RESIDENTS ONLY AS WELL.

SO, UM, A LOT OF VERY GOOD POSITIVE FEEDBACK FROM PASS HOLDERS AND RESIDENTS IN THE CITY, UM, ABOUT BEING ABLE TO COME ON CERTAIN DAYS.

UM, AND I HOPE TO HAVE A CONVERSATION HERE IN THE NEAR FUTURE WITH ROBIN SCOTT AND JOSH ABOUT MAYBE EXTENDING THAT OUT EVEN TO MAYBE ANOTHER DAY, UM, TO WHERE IT'S AN ALL DAY RESIDENT AND PASSHOLDER DAY ONLY.

SO, UM, THOSE WERE ACTUALLY SOME OF OUR BEST DAYS.

UM, SO REALLY, REALLY GOOD THERE.

UM, JUMPING DOWN TO SHELTER RENTALS, UM, 2019, OUR FINAL NUMBER WAS 505 RENTALS.

UM, WE'RE AT 224 RIGHT NOW FOR 2020.

UM, THE AMPHITHEATER HAS GOTTEN SOME USE AS WELL.

UM, YOU KNOW, THERE WAS SOME, UH, SOCIALLY DISTANCED, I THINK WE HAD ONE OR TWO SOCIALLY DISTANCE WEDDINGS, UM, YOU KNOW, AND, UM, DIFFERENT EVENTS LIKE THAT.

THE BOY SCOUTS ACTUALLY HAVE DONE SOME AWARD CEREMONIES OUT THERE, UM, AS WELL ON SOME SUNDAYS.

UM, AND THEN OF COURSE, YOU KNOW, THE FARMER'S MARKET AND THE MUSIC SERIES, UM, HAVE BEEN HUGE SUCCESSES WELL FOR JOSH AND THE CITY, UM, USER GROUP UPDATE, UM, COUPLE UPDATES, UM, THE ADULT FLAG FOOTBALL LEAGUE, UM, FROM GREATER DAYTON, UM, IS ACTUALLY THEY EXTENDED THEIR SEASON.

THEY'RE GOING TO DO ANOTHER SEASON HERE AT CLOUD PARK.

I'M VERY HAPPY WITH HOW THINGS LOOKED AND HOW IT WORKS.

SO JOE YOUNG WITH THEM REACHED OUT TO GET THE PAPERWORK.

I SHOULD HAVE IT BACK WEEK.

UM, WARRIOR SOCCER WILL BE HAVING THEIR FALL EVENT, UM, OCTOBER 15TH, 16TH, 17TH, AND 18TH.

RIGHT? BRIAN? YEAH, THEY, UH, THEY HAD ADD, UH, THURSDAY, UH, TO ME, UH, THE GOVERNMENT, YOU KNOW, THE GOVERNOR'S ORDERS ONLY WON ONE GAME, MY BAR PERIOD.

YEAH.

SO THEY WILL, THEY WILL BE USING ALL CLUB PARK THAT WEEKEND.

WE WERE ALREADY BLOCKED.

WE ALREADY BLACKED OUT THE SHELTERS FOR THAT WEEKEND ON AN ISSUE.

UM, BUT IT'S NICE TO HAVE THEM BACK IN AND RUNNING THEIR NORMAL TOURNAMENT SINCE WE DID NOT GET TO HAVE ONE OVER MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND.

CHRIS JOE KNOW ABOUT THAT, THAT DAY.

YEAH, NO, I NEED TO FOLLOW UP WITH HIM.

UM, I DID FOLLOW UP WITH THE OTHER GROUP WITH SANDY AND, AND CLUB OHIO.

UM, THAT'S BEEN DOWN THERE USING THAT, THOSE FIELDS CLOSE THE ROAD, JOSH.

UM, THEY'RE GOOD.

THEY'RE FINE.

UM, SHE SAID WE WILL NOT BE DOWN THERE AT ALL THAT, THAT WEEKEND AND THAT THURSDAY AND FRIDAY, JOE

[00:15:01]

HAD ASKED ME AND I TOLD THEM I HADN'T HEARD ANYTHING YET.

AND THE NEXT DAY YOU CALLED ME TO TELL ME AND I HADN'T GOTTEN BACK TO HIM YET.

SO I'LL SHOOT HIM AN EMAIL TONIGHT.

OKAY.

THANKS.

ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME? NOPE.

ANYWAY, ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS FOR CHRIS? GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM HERE.

UH, NEW BUSINESS, UH, PROGRAMMING UPDATES.

UM, SO, UH, LAST MONTH WE HAD TALKED ABOUT DOING A FALL SCAVENGER HUNT, UM, AND THAT WAS GOING TO BE RELATED TO, YOU KNOW, POTENTIALLY, YOU KNOW, GETTING A COUPLE OF BOARDS AND, UH, EITHER DECORATING AND PAYING THEM OR LEAVING THEM, PLAYING AND POSTING SOME ANNOUNCEMENTS ON FACEBOOK AND HOW THE THOUGHTS GO OUT, YOU KNOW, JUST TAKE PHOTOS, GO OUT AND GRAB THEM, ET CETERA.

SO, UM, WE'RE STILL ON TARGET TO DO THAT.

UM, IF YOU ALL ARE INTERESTED, I LIKED IT TOO, SOMETHING STARTING AROUND OCTOBER 1ST.

UM, AND THAT'S BASICALLY, YOU KNOW, TAKING A COUPLE OF GOURDS PAYING THEM, BUT THEN YOU CAN DROP THEM OFF WITH ME OR MAYBE PERHAPS JOSH UP AT THE CITY AND WE'LL DO ALL THE, YOU KNOW, WE'LL DO THE REST AND TAKING THEM OUT AND PUT ON THE RENTAL OR THE, YOU KNOW, THE, THE CLUES OUT ON FACEBOOK.

UM, ANOTHER THING THAT I WANT TO LET YOU GUYS KNOW IS THAT JOSH HAS BEEN DOING SOME RESEARCH ON POTENTIALLY LOOKING AT OTHER, UM, OBJECTS FOR SCAVENGER HUNTS AS WELL.

SO ONE IS BASICALLY A DIGITAL GAME WHERE SOMEONE CAN DOWNLOAD, UM, THINK OF DOWNLOAD THE APP, SIGN UP AND THEN POTENTIALLY, YOU KNOW, JUST PLAYING THE GAME SO THEY CAN GO OUT AND DO WHATEVER ACTIVITIES OR LOOK AT THE CLUES AND GO HUNT OR WHATEVER IT IS THAT WE'RE DOING.

SO HE'S THE ONE, A LOT OF RESEARCH ON THAT FOR US.

AND, UM, IF THAT WORKS OUT, UM, THEN WE WILL HAVE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE A NUMBER OF GAMES AND ACTIVITIES OUT IN THE PARK NEXT YEAR, THIS YEAR OR NEXT YEAR.

UM, ANY QUESTIONS FOR ME.

OKAY.

SO IF YOU ALL WOULD LIKE TO, UM, DONATE A BOARD OR SOMETHING, FEEL FREE TO DROP IT OFF WITH JOSH OR SEND ME AN EMAIL AND I'LL RUN AROUND AND I'LL PICK IT UP AND THEY WILL DO THE REST EVENTS.

YES, SIR.

UH, I BELIEVE IT WAS THE CITY OF MIAMI'S BERG.

UM, THERE'S WAS DOING SOMETHING SIMILAR.

THEY PAINTED ROCKS AND HIT THEM IN THEIR PARKS AND SET IT TO WHERE, UM, PEOPLE GO AND TAKE A PICTURE.

THEY LEAVE THE ROCK.

SO, YOU KNOW, THEY'RE NOT DISAPPEARING, SO WE MAY WANT TO LOOK IT UP, LOOK, WELL, NOT CHANGE IT UP, BUT JUST LOOK AND SEE WHAT THEY'RE DOING.

AND I MEAN, THERE'S, THERE'S, YOU KNOW, NO, NO HARM AND, UH, MIMICKING THE SAME THING.

CORRECT.

OKAY.

WELL, WE CAN DEFINITELY THAT.

YEAH.

I THINK IT WAS MIAMISBURG.

OKAY.

IT LOOKS LIKE BRIAN HAS HIS HAND UP TOO.

HEY BRIAN.

HEY.

YEAH.

I WAS THINKING, YOU KNOW, I WATCHED THE VIDEO FROM LAST ONE SINCE I WASN'T THERE.

AND HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THE GOURDS AND PUMPKINS AND STUFF LIKE THAT.

AND THE, YOU KNOW, I THINK IT WAS, JOSH WAS WORRIED ABOUT THEM AGAIN, SMASHED AND EVERYTHING LIKE THAT.

SO I WAS THINKING, YOU KNOW HOW, YOU KNOW, YOU GO TO SOMEBODY'S ARMS, WHATEVER THEY HAVE FOR IT AS DECORATIONS, THEY ARE JUST A STATE, YOU KNOW, THE MIDDLE STATES MORE THAN, YOU KNOW, PICTURE OF A GANG OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

SOMETHING THAT'S A LITTLE BIT MORE SOLID THAN WE COULD POSSIBLY YOU NEED SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

YOU KNOW, LEVEL UP FOR TECHNOLOGY WISE HAVE LIKE A LITTLE BIT SOMEWHERE AROUND THERE, BUT THAT COULD BE PART OF FUTURE.

OKAY.

YOU TALKED ABOUT SOMETHING LIKE THIS, THAT SKELETONS I DON'T UNDERSTAND OR PUBLIC IS MORE SOLID.

UH, THEY STILL COULD GET BROKEN REPORTS, BUT NOT AS EASILY AS IT COULD BE.

ALSO IF WE HAVE A SCORE SOMEWHERE.

OKAY.

I'LL RUN AROUND THIS WEEKEND AND SEE IF I'M BUYING SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

AND I'LL LET YOU GUYS KNOW.

OKAY.

ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS? OKAY.

BRIAN, I, YOU TO PUT YOUR HAND DOWN NOW, DON'T BE THAT KID GO TO THE BATHROOM.

THE NEXT EVENT THAT WE HAVE, UM, THAT WE'RE LOOKING AT GUN IS THE PUMPKIN GLOW.

UM, SO CHRIS, I DON'T THINK YOU ALL ARE DOING THE TRUMPET.

TREAT THE SHERIFF, CORRECT? UH, NICK IS NOW EXITING.

CHRIS, DID YOU JUST HANG UP ON ACCIDENT?

[00:20:01]

YEAH.

YEAH, HE DID TAP ON HIS STREAM IF YOU NOTICE.

OKAY.

IT'S OKAY.

SO, UM, SO INITIALLY THE INITIAL THOUGHT WAS THE TITUS TWO, THE PUMPKIN, I'M SORRY, THE TRUNK OR TREAT.

SO IT WOULD GIVE FOLKS WHO WERE STANDING IN LINE OR, UM, AN OPPORTUNITY TO START OVER THERE OR FINISH OR RIGHT.

THE AMPHITHEATER.

BUT SINCE, UM, THAT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN, WE CAN STILL DO THE PUMPKIN GLOW OVER AT THE AMPHITHEATER, BUT THE RULES WILL HAVE TO CHANGE A LITTLE BIT.

I BELIEVE AROUND OCTOBER 10TH, CORRECT ME, JOSH, IF I'M WRONG, THERE'LL BE GIVEN OUT PUMPKIN'S AT THE MOVIE EVENT, WHICH WILL BE SHOWING THE MOVIE GREASE AT THE ROSE MUSIC CENTER.

SO WE CAN MAKE AN ANNOUNCEMENT AROUND THAT TIME TO BRING IT BACK, PROBABLY THAT FRIDAY BEFORE HALLOWEEN OR HALLOWEEN OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT, TO HAVE PEOPLE DECORATED COME OUT AND JUST COME TO VIEW ALL THE, YOU KNOW, THE CREATIVE, UM, PUMPKINS THAT PEOPLE HAVE CARVED OUT.

UM, OR WE CAN ALSO WAIT UNTIL NEXT YEAR.

SO THIS IS UP TO YOU GUYS.

I JUST SEEM TO KNOW WHAT DIRECTION WE NEED TO GO IN.

SO, UM, THE ECHO START TO PLANNING FOR THAT AND MAKE ANNOUNCEMENTS AND ALL THAT.

SO, BRIAN, UH, I'M ALL FOR IT.

I THINK WE COULD PROBABLY DO SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, JOE, TO START DOING, WE COULD DO IT THIS YEAR, BUT I DON'T KNOW.

YOU MIGHT JUST HAVE JUST A, YOU KNOW, A STEPPING STONE STARTED GETTING OUT THERE.

I DO KNOW I GOT A FRIEND THAT I WANT TO TALK TO YOU ABOUT IT.

HE USED THE CAR PUMP ALL THE TIME FOR THAT BIG STODDARD.

YOU SIT THERE AND FAR DOZENS OF PUMPKIN'S FOR THAT.

I'LL TRY TO GET SOME INFORMATION TO HIM IF HE GAVE IT TO ME.

OKAY.

OKAY.

I KNOW I'LL LOOK AT THE CITY COUNSELOR TO GET TO SEE WHAT'S GOING ON AND SEE IF WE CAN TIE IT TO SOMETHING ELSE.

UM, SOME OTHER EVENTS AS WELL, BUT IF NOT, WELL, WE'LL PROBABLY TARGET THE 30TH BECAUSE HALLOWEEN IS WHAT ON THE 31ST WE'RE DOING THE TRICK OR TREAT BEGGAR'S NIGHT HERE.

UM, SO WE COULD DO IT BACK NIGHT AND HAVE PEOPLE COME UP AFTER, YOU KNOW, EIGHT TO COME ULA OR WOULD WE DO IT THE NIGHT BEFORE? YEAH, WELL, I, I DO KNOW LIKE THE STARTER, THEY ALWAYS DO THAT.

IT'S LIKE A TWO NIGHT EVENT.

GIVE PEOPLE LECTURE THURSDAY, FRIDAY WILL PROBABLY WORK OUT GOOD.

I THINK IT MIGHT BE OKAY.

WELL, I THINK WHAT THEY SHOW WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE TO DO ONE, UM, CAUSE WE HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT STORAGE AND ALL THAT FUN STUFF AND I DON'T WANT IT.

YES.

CHRIS, APOLOGIZE FOR THE TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES AGAIN.

UM, WE ARE NOT HAVING OUR TRUNK OR TREAT HARVEST PARTY THIS YEAR AT ALL, SO, OKAY.

RIGHT, JAY, I DON'T HAVE A ISSUE EITHER WAY.

I MEAN, IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'D BE A GOOD LEARNING CURVE TO SEE HOW IT GOES.

I KNOW FAIRBORN IS DOING SOMETHING SIMILAR SINCE THEY'VE CANCELED PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING ELSE TOO.

SO THEY'RE HAVING SOMETHING SIMILAR, I THINK.

ALRIGHT.

AND I'LL HAVE A DATE FOR YOU GUYS THIS WEEKEND, HONESTLY, TO LOOK AT A COUPLE OF THINGS.

UH, SO NEXT I'M GONNA SCREEN IS JOSH.

UH, SARAH JUST MESSAGED ME AND SAID THAT THEY ARE NOT DOING THE STODDARD PUMPKIN GLOW THIS YEAR EITHER.

UM, SO IF WE KNOW PEOPLE THAT ARE WITH THAT ORGANIZATION, YOU KNOW, WE MAY WANT TO REACH OUT AND SEE IF THEY'RE, IF THEY WANT TO BRING SOME MORE PUMPKINS OUR WAY AS WELL.

UM, AND I THINK, UM, I THINK I SAW THE CHRIS BLOWGUN OFF NODDING HIS HEAD TO NOT DO IT THE EVENING OF TRICK OR TREAT.

ALL RIGHT, CHRIS.

YEAH.

I JUST THINK IT'S REALLY BUSY THAT NIGHT FOR LITTLE KIDS AND THEY WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO DO THEY'RE USUALLY PRETTY, UH, PRETTY BROKE DOWN AFTER, AFTER A COUPLE HOURS AND IT ALWAYS RAINS OR SNOWS THAT NIGHT ANYWAY.

SO THERE'S A 90% CHANCE TO GET BETTER WET WEATHER THE NIGHT BEFORE SO WE CAN ALL GET TO, SO WE'LL TARGET, LET'S SAY 30 OCTOBER, I'LL LOOK AT THE CALENDAR AND THEN I'LL SEND SOMETHING OUT FOR YOU GUYS THIS WEEKEND.

UH LET'S SEE, RON.

UM, YEAH, I MEAN, IF IT CAN WORK OUT ON THE SCHEDULE TO IT'S WORTH THE EFFORT.

OKAY.

LET'S IT FELL ASLEEP.

[00:25:01]

OKAY.

WE'RE READY, ALEX.

SO WHERE ARE WE BEST? YEAH, THAT SOUNDS GOOD TO ME AND WAITING WE'RE DOING CANDY OR ANYTHING.

UM, HMM.

THAT'S A GOOD QUESTION TOO.

I GUESS IT'D BE THE BETTER QUESTION.

YEAH.

I'LL HAVE TO ASK THE QUESTION ON THAT WE CAN DISTRIBUTE CANDY OUT OF.

WE MAY BE ABLE TO, UM, BUT I'LL HAVE TO ASK THE QUESTION ON THAT.

SO, UM, I'LL SAY SARAH NOTE, THIRD QUESTION.

CAUSE OCTOBER IS COMING UP SO WE CAN HAND OUT CANDY AND HOPEFULLY AT THE FARMER'S MARKET, HOPEFULLY THE ANSWER'S YES, BUT I THINK WE'LL HAVE TO KEEP THAT DISTANCE.

SO WHAT HAPPENED? FIGURE OUT SOME SOLUTION, IF THAT MAKES SENSE.

YEAH.

OKAY.

AND BLAKE, I AGREE.

I THINK WE SHOULD DO IT, DO IT ON DIFFERENT NIGHTS AND BEGGAR'S NIGHT DID AGREE.

OKAY, PERFECT.

HEY EVENTS, WHY WE'RE ON THE SUBJECT? UM, DEPENDING AGAIN, ON, ON IF WE'RE ALLOWED TO PASS OUT CANDY AND THINGS LIKE THAT WE'VE ALREADY TALKED ABOUT AT THE FARMER'S MARKET ON HALLOWEEN, UM, HAVING THE TRICK OR TREAT AT THE MARKET FOR THE KIDS, ALL THE VENDORS ARE ON BOARD WITH IT.

UM, MOST OF THE VENDORS PREGNANT DRESS UP, UH, THINGS LIKE THAT, BUT THAT MIGHT BE ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY FOR US.

IF WE'RE ALLOWED TO PASS OUT CANDY, IF BOARD MEMBERS WANT TO COME AND A SMALL TRUNK OR TREAT IN THE PARKING LOT AS WELL, DECORATE YOUR CAR UP OR HAVE A LITTLE THING SET UP BY YOUR CAR.

UH, WE DO GET QUITE A FEW KIDS OUT THE MARKET AND I THINK IF WE HAVE SOMETHING LIKE THAT, IT'LL BRING MORE PARENTS OUT IF THEY HAVE SOMETHING FOR THEIR KID AND IT'S ALREADY GONNA BE ON HALLOWEEN.

SO, YOU KNOW, JUST BE A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA FOR THAT DAY.

OKAY.

AND DO YOU THINK WE COULD DO SOMETHING SMALL? PROBABLY.

WE'RE PROBABLY NOT GONNA HAVE FOOD TRUCKS TO MENTAL WHAT WE HAD LAST WEEKEND, CORRECT? UH, NO, BUT WE'LL PROBABLY HAVE, UH, ANYWHERE FROM ONE TO THREE, UH, EVERY MARKET FROM HERE ON OUT, I THINK FROM THE RESPONSE WE'VE GOTTEN FROM SOME OF THEM WHO ARE WILLING TO COME BACK.

SO WE'LL STILL HAVE A COUPLE OF FOOD TRUCKS AT EACH OF THEM.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

OKAY.

BECAUSE THAT WAS THINKING THAT IF WE DID, AND THEN WE CAN USE OUR SPOT THAT WE PUT ALL THE FOOD TRUCKS AT THIS WEEKEND.

UH, IF NOT, WE CAN USE THE OTHER SIDE OF THAT FRONT PARKING LOT OR, YOU KNOW, WE'LL, WE'LL FIND ROOM FOR THEM.

ALRIGHT, COOL.

ALRIGHT.

ARE THERE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS OR ANYTHING ON THOSE TOPICS? OKAY.

SO WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON TO THE NEXT AGENDA ITEM 20, 21 DISCUSSION OF PROGRAMMING.

SO I PUT THIS ON HERE BECAUSE I WANTED, I WANT US TO START LEANING FORWARD, UM, AND STARTED LOOKING AT 2021.

UM, AND LOOKING AT IT AS IF WE'RE BACK TO A NORMAL YEAR AND WHAT ACTIVITIES OR EVENTS OR OKAY.

LOOK AT IT BACK TO A NORMAL YEAR, LIKE 2019.

AND, UM, WE, UH, WHAT WE WOULD LIKE TO DO, YOU KNOW, DURING, UH, IN 2021.

SO, UM, SOME OF THE THINGS WOULD BE TO INCLUDE THINGS LIKE ADD, I WOULD LOVE TO DO A, UM, A COMMUNITY DAY SOMETHING WHERE WE HAVE A TON OF SPORTS ACTIVITIES OR, YOU KNOW, CHALLENGE ACTIVITIES FOR KIDS, FOR ADULTS, ET CETERA.

SO DO SOMETHING THAT MAYBE DOWN A THOMAS CLOUD PART OR UP AT THE Y OR SOMETHING.

SO SOMETHING LIKE THAT.

UM, BUT I WOULD ALSO LOVE TO GET A BUNCH OF VOLUNTEERS TO HELP.

UM, OTHER IDEAS INCLUDE DOING SOMETHING IN THE FOLLOWUP, THE PUMPKIN GLOW, SIMILAR TYING IT WITH THE WISE TRUMP RETREAT, IF WE WERE ABLE TO DO THAT NEXT YEAR, UM, PLANNING ACTIVITIES FOR, UM, JULY, WHICH IS PARKS AND RECREATION MONTH.

UM, SO DURING WHAT JOSH DID LAST YEAR, BUT, YOU KNOW, SPREADING THINGS OUT AND, YOU KNOW, HELPING TO SUPPORT THAT.

SO HAVING A TON OF ACTIVITIES OUT IN THE PART.

SO I WANT YOU ALL TO START THINKING ABOUT THAT.

UM, BECAUSE, UM, FAIRLY SOON, PROBABLY NEXT MONTH, UM, I WANT TO START DEVELOPING A GOOD LIST.

SO THAT WAY WHEN DECEMBER AND JANUARY COMES ABOUT, WE CAN START HELPING TO PLAN FOR SOME OF THAT.

AND, YOU KNOW, SO WE CAN LOOK AT PLANNING FROM JANUARY THAT'S LIKE JANUARY THROUGH JANUARY THROUGH MARCH IMPLEMENTING, YOU KNOW, IN THE SPRING, EARLY SUMMER BECAUSE SOME OF THOSE ACTIVITIES DOES THAT MAKE SENSE? OKAY.

SO DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR COMMENTS ON THAT? NO, YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT MEETING TO SEND YOUR IDEAS.

YOU CAN SEND THEM TO ME AND SEND THEM TO JOSH BY EMAIL AT ANY TIME.

AND WHAT WE'LL DO IS WE'LL JUST CONSOLIDATE IT AND COME UP WITH A GOOD LIST AND SEND IT OUT TO FOLKS SO THAT YOU ALL HAVE SOMETHING DURING THE MEETING.

[00:30:02]

AND IT'S WHERE DO YOU, WHERE ARE YOU THINKING? LIKE, IS THIS GOING TO LIKE COMPLETE ACTIVITIES, SEASONAL ACTIVITIES, LIKE WINTER, SPRING, SUMMER FALL? UM, SO LIKE THE COMMUNITY EVENT WOULD BE A YEAR.

SO, YOU KNOW, WE MAY, MY THOUGHT RIGHT NOW IS TO GO OUT TO THOMAS CALLED PARK, HAVE A FEW, YOU KNOW, WE HAVE A, WE HAVE SEVERAL YEARS USER GROUPS WHO ARE, WHO UTILIZE THE PARK, MAYBE WORK WITH THEM TO HAVE THEM DO SOME TYPE OF DEMONSTRATION FOR, YOU KNOW, FOR THE RECREATION, HAVE, YOU KNOW, THE BOUNCY HOUSE HAVE, YOU KNOW, SOME OTHER, YOU KNOW, UM, A CITY COMPETITION OR SOME SOMETHING LIKE A, UH, AWARD KICKBALL TOURNAMENT, YOU KNOW? SO THAT WOULD BE A YEARLY EVENT, BUT THEN LOOK AT OTHER THINGS.

SO MAYBE LIKE A MONTHLY, WE DO A ROCK PAINTING WITH PARTY OR SOME SORT, OR, UM, OR, OR WE WORK WITH CHRIS AND THE Y TO FIGURE OUT WHAT ACTIVITIES WE CAN GET FROM THE Y AND BRING OUT OUT TO THE PARTS.

SO IT CAN BE ANYTHING.

UM, I'M JUST LOOKING TO SEE WHAT THE ART OF THE POSSIBLE IS AND WHAT YOU GUYS WANT TO DO AND SEE WHERE WE CAN START FROM.

AND THEN FROM THERE WE CAN GROW ANY QUESTIONS.

NOPE.

OKAY.

ALL RIGHT.

SO THE NEXT THING WE'LL GO TO AS ADDITIONAL BUSINESS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS, DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY BUSINESS OR ANNOUNCEMENTS? NOPE.

OKAY.

AND SO WHAT I WILL SAY IS, UM, I DID, I DID SEND, UH, JOSH AND SARAH A DRAFT TODAY.

UH, I HAVE A VOLUNTEER FORM, SO I'LL BE STARTING TO DO A CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS, BUT FOR THE PARKS AND RECREATION BOARD FAIRLY SOON, JUST TO GET A LIST OF PEOPLE AND LIST OF NAMES OF PEOPLE WHO WANT TO HELP DEVELOP PROGRAMS. SO WE DO HAVE SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, THEY WANT TO TAKE LEAD ON IT, YOU KNOW, THEN WE CAN WORK WITH THEM TO HELP DEVELOP THOSE PROGRAMS AS WELL.

SO, UM, THAT WE'LL HOPE, HOPEFULLY I'LL START MAKING THAT ANNOUNCEMENT FAIRLY.

SO, BUT I SENT THEM A DRAFT CONCEPT.

UH, WHAT I THINK IN THE FORM COULD LOOK LIKE.

SO ONCE I GET THAT BACK, WE'LL START, YOU KNOW, MAKING SOME ANNOUNCEMENTS AND STUFF, SO ABOUT GETTING VOLUNTEERS AND A GOOD THING ABOUT THAT FORM IS THAT IT CAN BE USED FOR ALMOST ANYTHING.

SO, YOU KNOW, EVEN FOR ANY OTHER BOARDS, COMMISSIONS OR CITY ACTIVITIES.

SO WITHOUT FURTHER ADO, WE'LL GO AHEAD AND MOVE ON.

UM, THE APPROVAL OF THE MINUTES.

HAS EVERYONE HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO READ THE MINUTES FROM, UH, AUGUST AND JULY? YES.

SO IF, IF THERE ARE NOTES YET, IF THERE ARE NO OBJECTIONS, THEN THE MINUTES WILL BE APPROVED AS WRITTEN.

ARE THERE ANY OBJECTIONS TO THE MINUTES THE MINUTES ARE APPROVED? UM, CHRIS, I WILL SEND THOSE TO YOU.

UM, IT'S SIGNED.

UM, OKAY.

SO OUR NEXT MEETING IS ON OCTOBER 15TH, UM, AT, UH, 6:30 PM AND IT IS 7:05 PM AND THIS MEETING IS ADJOURNED, BUT THEN YOU GUYS WOULD SHOW IT FOR COMING OUT TODAY, SHOWING UP ON THE BRADY BUNCH THING.

SO RIGHT.

OH MY GOSH, BANGLES.
