    Hi everyone!  Hope your summer is going well!  I just wanted to remind everyone that we have a PAC meeting tomorrow (July 14) at noon.  We will be meeting at the Polar Bear Playground on Pine Street (at the intersection of Pine Street and Eighth Ave).  There is a big parking lot, grassy areas, and the playground if any kids do come with us.  Masks will not be enforced but are suggested, and we will be able to social distance.  If you are able to bring a camp chair with you, that would be great, but we will have some extras if you are unable to.  I will be arriving at 11:30.  If anyone would like to come early to chat and hang out before the meeting, feel free to join me.  The meeting agenda and live comments are shared in our private facebook group. 

    Aug 11 – TBA
