[Oeva-list] OEVA meeting this week - January 10
gary at whitecape.org

We don't have a presentation scheduled, so folks can share their holiday
I also won't be able to attend tonight (we also have severe health
problems at home and my daughter is getting married Saturday), so
perhaps one of the members can step up and call the meeting to order. I
can send handouts and the sign if someone on the west side would like to
We probably need to elect new officers this spring. As Eric points out,
both of us are pretty occupied taking care of our wives fighting cancer

I think it may be a good time for someone else to fill at least one of our positions (Gary will have to speak for himself, but I'm only up to reserving the meeting room as a confirmed commitment). Here's a chance (and at least one request) for someone to take an active role in operations.
