At last week's Annual Meeting, we had a great gathering of local businesses and an enlightening discussion about buying local from Jane Prince, a Daytons Bluff neighbor and representative of the Metro Independent Business Association. We unveiled our new welcome packets for new neighbors, so if you are new to the area, or know someone who is new to our community, let us know and we will get a packet to you.
We also elected new board members and officers. Our new President is Greg Beaumont, Vice President - Erika Martin, Treasurer - Stacey Van Patten, and Secretary - Phil Fuehrer. Greg Poul, Sandy Rosbacka and Collins Dibaki were elected as new board members, along with incumbents Saalim Mahamed, Pastor Andy Berreth, Dave Nasby, Marty Danielson and Garneth Peterson.
We still have openings for community members interested in serving on our committees.
Thanks to all the businesses who participated and especially to Caribou Coffee/Byerly's for refreshments and Little Oven for door prizes.
