Executive Director's Report

Center upgrades. The Center bought a new lawnmower and electric edger, both of which are great and have allowed us to make the Center's grounds look MUCH better. We've had two Center Spruce-Up days so far focusing mainly on the Art Barn, which is now in much better shape than it was before. There has been a lot of turnover in volunteers, and some of them may actually work out!

Renters. Lia Nelson has signed a month-to-month lease for the Imaginary Room starting June 1st and is moving in now. The Board discussed some positive options for the renter of the Garage Apartment.

Since there was no further business, the meeting adjourned at around 3:45 pm.
