Regular Meetings
 We need to have them. Motion presented by Kelly. 

Ideas for speakers/meetings:
 Ken Spurgeon
 Jeni Chinn
 The Oil Museum—get 20 to 30 people.  “controversy draws people”
 Delia Garcia-Raj –Rep from North.  With political topics we draw the poli-sci crowd. 
 River Fest—meeting for fireworks, repeat of ’06 gathering.
 Big meeting to address constitutional items.

Other highlights from the meeting:
 Kelly tried to steal a fry from Ray. He hit her. She screamed. Violence is never the answer!

 “College hill names are exceptional public history like.”—Ray

 Ray is violent.

 Neal was late due to a Suessapallossa party; he made it up to the group by handing out Dr. Seuss cat in the hat coloring pages.

 Andrea legitimately hates Ray, Ray loves Andrea. Should his wife be told?
