December 20, 2010 Corktown CDC Mtgs Minutes

December 20, 2010 Corktown CDC Mtgs Minutes(Draft to be approved at Jan.18th meeting)

Minutes of Aug. 16, 2010 Corktown CDC mtg/ 1st draft for Agenda at Sept. 20, 2010

Hi all,
I'll be brief here - we had only 4 CDC members at Aug. 16th mtg: Felicia Johnson, Jen Wallisch, Dorothy Bennick & myself. Jen remembered that Shelley Paros had heart surgery late spring & we'll need to contact her & see how she's doing. Diane & Mark H. were on vacation & Albert C. dealing with health issues & we weren't sure how we missed Javier or he missed us. Tim McKay did not attend so we basically discussed old business rather than his issue about Historical Society. (See the few items below) & we set the next mtg on Sept. 20th back a half hour -- to 7 PM. We plan to meet at Mudgie's again next time, and will get farther because more members can attend in Sept. than summer.
