President call to order:
Minutes of the annual meeting are in process—will be reviewed at next meeting.
Veterans Memorial—we know of a few more names to put on the memorial, and will check with Laurel and/or Marion Daley. We still have money to add names.
We have a Boy Scout who wants to do a history project for his Eagle badge—we will talk to Laura H and do some research to see what we have for him.
Pierce’s Hall is seeking grants—will look to Windham Foundation, and will have no conflict there—they will seek a letter through the Preservation Trust for possible additional support. We mentioned a few other grant sources, and Anne said she’d look into that.
Painted Curtains Event Oct 4, 11-4 at Putney Town Hall— came in and started to repaint—will come back and paint all day on Oct 4, and we’ll be open for public display—Barb is trying to get 14 tables for that Saturday—town is hard, but will look into church and/or Putney School. She’ll get back to us if needing help.
General Store Project—Stuart briefly introduced our status as of Thursday evening’s task force,
