Calendar. It has already be accepted, now it needs to be adopted, Valerie
needs to be asked as to when this is going to happen.
- A master builder is still
being discussed and everyone present was in agreement that the following

proposal on Walgreens. Ed suggested getting out flyers to inform the community

suggested putting a post on the Comsewogue community page and start getting
volunteers in designated parts of our town to help pass out flyers for this as
well as any upcoming news that will be beneficial to get more publicity. Frank was just concerned about putting the
flyers in the mailboxes but as long as they are told not to do this, it should
