Judy announced that Susan Loso has resigned from the Board and as a Young Vincentian Leader. Judy went to their last meeting on Feb 16 and asked for leaders. Would like a decision by April. She suggested they only meet once a month and scale their activities back.
Judy discussed a request for help from the Fish Fry committee. Judy recruited help from our members for both shifts. Judy also discussed a request from Al Vargas to help with a Latino Festival on September 20. Because it is one week prior to our Walk for the Poor, we declined that request.
Our Walk for the Poor will be on September 27, due to it being the only available date.
