was very receptive to. We anticipate more such meetings. In an effort to keep you informed, we
have been sending emails and posting on Facebook and here as well. Please make sure you
have sent us your email address. This way we can keep you informed on these important
matters. If there are any items you would like addressed, let us know. Please email your
