14 - Art & Charlotte Runyon will not be at this years Blue Grass festival.  (They are going to one in Eastern WA.)  We discussed not renting the Burger Den this year, but will either set up a cooking area under the covered part of the park, or set up canopy's to work under.  We will borrow a trailer to lock up the equipment at night.  We have a small refrigerator that can be used for keeping cheese, etc. cold.  We will buy canned pop just before July 4th when it is on sale.  Bev Jolley has already started sending out donation letters and is starting on the PR for Bluegrass.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:46.
