It was also decided to discuss writing a grant to purchase the software. The vote was unanimous and the motion was carried. The Auxiliary will be writing a grant for the software.

Since the computer crashed for the sign that is in front of the VFW, the sign has been black. Several options were discussed with the final motion being made to purchase a computer with funds from the General Fund. The motion was carried unanimously.
