John will provide Cindy w/database business information by next meeting 3/23/06. Design Chris presented the bills for the signs and the banners. It was decided that the bills would be submitted separately. One for the signs around town w/the large banners and a second one for the banners that go on the lampposts in town. To be confirmed and submitted to Pat Eagan by next meeting. It was decided that the large directory would not be placed at this time due to the fact that it would need to be extremely large to facilitate all of the businesses in the community. It was decided that when it is placed, all businesses would be included, but it may be in another location that can facilitate such a large diagram/map. Unfinished Business Newsletter – Mike will have complete by next meeting 3/23/06. Press Release to go out in next weeks papers – the group is trying to get a photo of all Board Members at the clock on 3/17/06 @ 1:30 PM. Not sure if all can attend at this time, but it was suggested that it go out immediately to promote the committee and future events.

Mike will discuss all of the positive issues of Olde Towne Association – New board, website, new events, activities, future growth of the town, new businesses – our mission.
To show conformity w/all items distributed to the community, it was decided that in the future all items require the approval of as many Board Members as possible. It would be great to think that all publications can wait for a meeting for approval, but this isn’t always the case. Please do your best to contact as many Board Members as possible.
