The last meeting video is over 30 minutes long. It's the meeting without the food and jokes. If this is too long for your enjoyment, please let me know. Your input is invaluable.
 
Over the next few meeting we will be experimenting with the concept of videoing our meeting and putting it on the website. The video will first come out on our website under the latest eMinnewaska, late Tuesday or Wednesday. An email copy will be sent over the weekend. The eMinnewaska will be update as needed on the website but only be mailed over the weekend.

This will be a social event where fellowship will be promoted. Please contact Dane or sign up online.
