If you plan to speak, we’re going to try to wear red to the meeting.  It’s very helpful to the board of you bring twenty copies of something written concerning what you are going to talk about.  If it involves a location on the system, an image or map is very helpful.  If people are still trying to figure out where or what something is, they’re not listening to you yet.

We’ll see you there.  If you have questions call William Hamilton (843) 870-5299 or eamil wjhamilton29464@gmail.com.
