This is a minimal Rowel.  In regards to the Harvest Festival meeting, we have commitments for over $5,000 in sponsorships and we are well on our way to our goal of $10,000.  Steve Heithecker  is doing good work on  the sponsor solicitation,  John Moss is getting involved in contacting potential sponsors, and  Eric Hoiland accepted an assignment from  Pres. Larry to assist in Craft Fair setup.    Twelve attended the meeting,   Jen Liu   came with  hot dogs, potato salad  chips  COOKIES   and beverages.
