(2021-04 Newsletter) Memorial Committee -
The Board would like to give Irene Phillips a huge “Thank You” for working on this committee by herself the past few years. She has done a fantastic job. Thank you again Irene.
Mel Wendel has offered his services for the Memorial Committee. However, he also expects some volunteers (3-5 is a good group) to step up and offer support. Please consider giving Mel a call (701-840-2339) and volunteering to help him. If volunteers step up, the Board will continue their support of this committee. Otherwise, the Board may have to take further action under advisement. We are anticipating your positive response to support our community in this endeavor. Thanks
In case you’re not aware of this committee or have forgotten its purpose – those working on it are in charge of the "Gift and Memorial Fund". The following should give you an understanding of just what that means.
