September Design Team Meeting

The Design Team held a short meeting this morning to go over last months activities. Since last month, the foundation was able to raise $335 that will be put to the endowment fund and matched dollar for dollar by the Southwest Initiative Foundation. Our next big step will happen in October as the permanent board will be seated and the group goes through a strategic planning session. We still have a 2 year board seats open, so if any of you are interested in serving on this board please let me know. You can email me at oleary@mnns.com. Gary Manson will also be looking at getting "thermometers" built to show the foundations progress in reaching its endowment fund raising goals. Look for more updates on the foundation in the next month.

Donation Update

I would like to thank the Tyler Tribute for coming out and getting a picture for last week's paper. Other than the two characters in the picture, I think it is a positive step for the foundation. We have also received another donation in memory of Barb Swanson for our endowment fund.
