2018 Annual Meeting Tonight

The annual meeting is tonight at Dominion High School in the school library. Note that this is change from the original plan of the cafeteria (Dominion just notified us of that today), and signs will be posted at the school to let everyone know of the change.

Registration begins at 6:30 pm. The meeting begins at 7:00pm (or later if required to get quorum). If you can't stay for the meeting, proxy forms will be available so you can fill one out and leave.

Two directors will be elected. It's my understanding that we'll have approximately four people running.

Refreshments will be served at the meeting.

Parking Committee Meeting

The Parking Committee will be meeting this Sunday, May 13, at 2:30pm in the Tot Lot. The agenda will be to discuss the Parking Policy that the board adopted in 2015.
