May I suggest and move that we contribute $250.00-$500.00 to the Madison School. If you are in favor, please let me know your vote and the amount you think is proper. With a majority vote, we then may schedule a time when this donation may be presented by Sandra Hollingsworth as our representative to Project PENCIL and our Pencil Partner, Madison School, and contact the press to cover this event.
Sandra Hollingsworth reports a new group titled Madison Community Alliance, subtitled "Madison Matters" has been formed as a unified voice for and to the Madison Community. This group of and for residents of Madison will be proactive in the effort to promote Madison "as a good place to live". The new Group is sponsoring its first "Fabulous 50's Christmas" on December 5-7, in the Historic Madison Village around the Madison Art Center. Activities planned include a parade and car show. If you wish to join and participate in this group, please contact Sandra.
Jane Kelley Armour reports that the WNPT-TV, Channel 8, Membership Drive, scheduled next month, December, does not include any weekend dates. Since this will limit the number of us who can participate and WNPT will schedule another membership drive in March 2004, we will postpone our participation until next March.
