Currently 1 applications and 24 adoptions year to date (mostly from prior adopters).
We will try and do bi-monthly Facebook mini auctions and will determine at a later time whether there will be a Membership Party or a Garage Sale outside The Noble Center.
The Robbie Dog Costume will be donated to Galatas Elementary as their mascot is a greyhound.
We will do an appreciation article on all the cats and small dogs that help test all of our greyhounds throughout all the years. As Constant Contact contract will expire soon, Sherrie will find out if we can pay for it quarterly or other options.
We will continue to restrict the public into The Noble Center and continue to monitor the situation. Announcements will be published on Facebook, the website and on the monthly newsletter.
Mark moved to adjourn and Sherrie seconded the motion. Approved.
