Old Business:

D. VanOverschelde talked with the board about new Rossy Park signs, moving the flagpole, a bike rack, and some outlets at the community center.

2. The flag pole by the community center will be taken down and moved to the ballpark. 

3. D. VanOverschelde had a bike rack given to her. She is going to clean the bike rack and donate it to be placed at Rossy Park for the kids to use for their bikes. 

4. D. VanOverschelde also talked to the board about some outlets being loose at the community center.  Chada is going to look into them and see what needs to be done to be fixed.
