Meeting Nov 08, in Ladysmith, joint:

  • Cowichan Chapter  I spoke with Donna.  Will send occasional updates to them.  They didn’t have anyone willing to take this on.  She doesn’t like doing presentations to Council.  They are getting on in years.   Maybe if there’s a template, someone would take it on.
