Flaming Gorge Days. Need to get a signup sheet with distinct time slots. Have talking point cards ready, need to re-evaluate education talking points. If wanting to donate items for fundraising, have a proposal by next meeting. Having candy available has worked well in the past. The website has been updated and will be utilized more for events. Having an agenda and minutes available before meetings on the website and Facebook is getting worked on. Also, looking into texting options.
