Tentative June 12/19th for adult movie night and July 17/24 for kid-friendly movie night. Will have the clerk review dates. Steen will be in charge for the June movie night, Admin will do the picnic, Davis will take charge for the July movie night.

Boehrer gave an update regarding the car show event she is working on. Needs ideas from council and to think about flyers to distribute at other car events in April. The budget would be approximately $600, to include trophies and dash plaques for participants. A benefit would be less. She wants to promote in 44th and Sheridan.
