Strategic Plan

The Strategic Plan is attached. Liz is at a training today, so on Monday I will have her load this on the district website as a "draft" version. (I will fix Goal 2 which is off the page).

I chose to use three symbols to show what has been done, what is in progress and what is ongoing. The goal is that this PDF will be converted to the flip builder software, so the final online version is more like a book, with page tabs.


I will continue to use the spreadsheet version for all of you and when we make the tri-annual reports, I'll tweak the public version to show what's been accomplished. I met with Jason today and reviewed what is needed from him.

Senior Citizen Breakfast

There are currently 12 people registered for the Senior Citizen Breakfast. It's now on the message center sign, the website and facebook. I am speaking at Thursday's Ruritan dinner and will invite the seniors from there.
