Karen can supply metal posts for big signs and larger size Karen McKim signs for good locations.         ..........continued after the flip!

     The discussion of New Business (Shown as Computer class/Facebook class? on the agenda) morphed into a different discussion of a possible post-election project to reach out to northern counties via social media to try to energize the silent progressives that are there but in hiding. This topic will be brought up again when more folks are present after the election.

     We adjourned and had a short political chat and left the library.
