Open Discussion or Questions? Raise your hand to be recognized

A question of when is the next meeting?
The next meeting will be January 3rd.
As that misses one week, that should be announced probabally, as in cancelling the 27th
I’ll send out a notice. Unless folks think we should still have a meeting on the 27th?
No, thats great, cancel it
Any other open comments?
Great, have a safe and happy holidays everyone!
