The Event Committee will look at dates and venue options. – Learned from Jennings that Ty Sherman continues to mow and maintain the lawn at the Foundation’s office facility. He also mentioned that the property next door is slowly being cleaned up by the new owners. The Foundation’s next meeting will take place at the Kenton Elks on Oct. 17 at noon.
