Old Business

Township Hall Book exchange doors are now open. There was an article in MCR and they will send a reporter when we host the 100th year anniversary. Looking at getting a tent sign and putting information on facebook. Supervisors were good with the advertising, just a reminder to keep the sign out of the right away. After talking with MATT and our Insurance agent, any volunteers working at the book exchange must sign the volunteer form and the form be filed with the Clerk.

Date for the 100th Anniversary of the Township will be on September 15th 9am to noon. We will provide Kool-Aid and cake. The Township will pay or reimburse for cost. See if Mary Tautges will bake the cake. Plan on advertising on facebook, Township webiste, and a sign at the church. We will need to look into a satellite and garbage cans.
