Dear Members,
Welcome to Fall. Not feeling it myself yet, but know it’s coming. As many of you know, I am the CAL Vice President, which means I am responsible for such things as the 4th of July Parade, Coordinating CAL projects as designated by the Board and membership, as well as such things as the Bylaws and more recently reviewing the need for new policies for the governance of CAL activities so that we are in compliance with the rules related to the status of our 501c3 designation. I will be coming to the membership soon with any recommended Bylaw changes as well as any new policies the Board deems are necessary going forward.
Near Term Events Status:
The Healing Garden will be closing down for the winter soon, and I’m sure Helen Tapp will appreciate any help she can get.
I’m not prepared as yet to report on the status of the Kinderhaven Festival of Trees project, but will advise you as soon as I can.
I look forward to serving you for the remainder of my tenure as Vice President and hope to see you face to face again soon whether in general meetings or in service at Bizarre Bazaar.

Beth Drain
