Special Guest speaker- Mike Mauk with Mauk Fishing stuff on trip to Washington to DC

Salmon Derby- Mike reported no venders had signed up so we asked if maybe we could use the reserved area for renting to overnight camping and Lee thinks we would most likely not be able to as the event application was for vendors not campers. So we will let the city know if we want to just have them open it for what ever. We are hosting rides back and forth from the launch

National Night out- the chamber is hosting free hotdogs and soda and water during the event. Brewster Market place has arranged to get the soda and hotdogs donated from their suppliers. The Armory will do the cooking. 4:00 to 7:00

Nattalie is planning on starting a community care fund which is an assistance fund to help ones in need before they can get other help. There will be a meeting later in the month.
