GoodwheelChairs. Due to his job duties, Bob has been ignoring GoodWheelchairs, so there has been some income lost during the last couple of months. James Williams may be able to get his work-study funds approved and come back to work soon.

Volunteers. Our new volunteer Thom Elston is attempting to get the mortgage refinanced before he leaves for New Zealand in two or three weeks. We have a new volunteer, Trisha, who is working on Online Social Networking, Facebook especially.

Other Info. 990s are due again. is almost up and running. We rented the cottage to Lauren Slusher starting June 1st.

New Book. Bob discussed the book written by his cousin Dan that talks about empowering communities to get what they need and aspire towards, and the board was excited to hear about it. Penny moved that the board read it before the next meeting, and the motion was passed unanimously.
