If you need more details, all of these events are on Trello!

c. Fundraising Committee (Z, Katy - in absentia)
Tex has graciously sent out her files from her Tornado Alley Tour, including for the other events out of town. If you haven't received them or didn't know they were available, contact me and I'll be sure to share it with you.

d. Newsletter Committee (Shannon)
The next deadline is October 6th; look ahead to that, and send articles to treasury@nvmedits.com. The Editor of the Season is JayCee; Donna will write the article.

e. Outreach Committee (Adrean)
Adrean has made contact with our adopted teacher! So far she seems to have a lot of what she needs, but has said that paper, pencils, EXPO markers and Kleenex are always appreciated.

f. OWFI Committee (Shannon)
The next OWFI board meeting will be September 10th at 1 pm.
The next Slack chat will be with Ben Montgomery on October 12th. The topic is, "Sounding the Gong: How to Craft an Ending That Reverbrates." Attendance will cost $14, payable through the website.
Reminder that OWFI 2018's theme for our costumes and baskets is superheroes! If you get supplies for the basket, be sure to bring them to Lord Mistress of the Baskets, Z!
Another reminder that OWFI collects its dues in October, and it's cheaper to join as an affiliate than a member-at-large! We'll start collecting registration as a group in September.


New Business:
None.
