The next meeting of the Affordable Housing Action Group is scheduled for April 9, 2018, at 7:00 pm at the United Way Building, 903 West Center Street

The Library Action Team was scheduled to be on the first Wednesday of each month 7:00-8:30 p.m. in the library meeting room A. Due to multiple unexpected circumstances, the meeting for April must be postponed. We have not been able to settle on a new date as yet so will announce later.  Please send an email to me at pjhardin@gmail.com if you would like to join the Library Action Team (LAT) and include any meeting preferences as we try to settle on a regular date and time. Mondays and Thursdays already must be excluded due to other conflicts with some schedules. It might help you choose if you look at the library web page for their meeting rooms and specifically for the availability for meeting room A:  https://root.evanced.info/rochester/evanced/roomrequest.asp    If I could at least get a sense of whether the majority can do afternoons or prefer evenings would be a big help.
