We will need to vote on our October 5th Meeting. Whether to go the Thursday before September 28th or Wednesday October 4th. We don't want to do the following Thursday as we will be running into the MBA Fall Conference. This reason is because the hall manager's daughter is getting married on Friday and they want to decorate the hall on Thursday. Think on it if you don't want to change we can have an smaller meeting that month.
We also need to make a motion to move our club dues from December 31 to December 1st so we have an complete list of club members for our extractor holders and Dave Anthony will like one for sending out order forms and knowledge of who belongs to our club when ordering bees. It will save us all time and less stress.
