Open House – The May 28 Open House in celebration of the Town of Springwater’s Bicentennial was a success. Some people who had lived in the area for years discovered the Center for the first time. And a connection was made with Rock Castor and Laurel Nelson from Lagom Landing, a nearby nonprofit residential program that teaches 18-25 year olds skills such as carpentry, gardening, cooking, forestry and other hands-on trades. We’re hopeful the connection will become more established and that the students may come to practice their skills on a Center project.
June 5th Annual Meeting – Thanks to the members who returned their voting proxies to form a quorum for the meeting. Bob Dattola was re-elected trustee for a three-year term. Bob Bulger gave the financial report, and Wayne Coger reviewed events and accomplishments of the preceeding year. In the discussion that followed, interest was expressed in building the Center’s membership. A fair proportion of our population have been members since the Center’s inception, and some concern was expressed concerning the current demographic.
