                                            We had our meeting here at the Ed Brown Senior Center, and it was a beautiful
                                        afternoon out on the patio with a great exchange of ideas and thoughts about the
                                        future of the Center. Thank you to those who took some time out of their day to
                                        come and contribute to the discussion. Following are a few things we discussed that
                                        we can address right away:
                                            We are approaching the instructors who taught the Palomar classes and offer
                                        to pay them to bring the classes back, offering the classes free for members and a
                                        $5 fee for non-members. If and when the instructors agree (or even getting other
                                        instructors), we will post the new schedule in the newsletter.
