Discussion
GA consented to pay $250 for food for a neighborhood cook-out and open mic night at Glenwood Books, which has not yet been paid. Agreed that there have been delays by all parties and the matter may be settled this week.

A member volunteered to alert everyone at 4 p.m. so GA can begin and end on time.
