August Executive Meeting -- this Thursday August 12

The summer has just flown by.  I can't believe we are already near the middle of August. School starts this week for the New Albany public schools and we should start seeing Christmas decorations going up in the stores.  Jeesh... 
This Saturday is our August FOSSILS Homebrew Club Meeting.  With elections coming in October, we will begin at this meeting by hearing speeches from those who want to run for FOSSILS office. So get your speeches prepared and let's get started on a quality election!  Also at this meeting, Dennis Stockslager will educate us on building a mash tun from commonly available parts at home.  
To prepare for this meeting and discuss plans for the future, I would like to convene an Exectutive Meeting this Thursday at 7:30pm at RichO's
We will have a number of things to talk about, including 20th Anniversary activities, bylaws revisions and updates, budget, nominations and elections, and Sunday Meeting arrangements.  As with all Executive meetings, all FOSSILS members are invited and can participate in the discussions.
Please come on out and support your club.
