Ch-ch-ch-changes!

David Bowie, ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-changes At our monthly meeting, we held elections and I’m happy to announce that our new Whiteside County chair will be Bill Gallentine. I know he’ll do a great job. I’ll continue as vice-chair, Shannon will continue as secretary, and Robyn will serve as treasurer.

We also voted to change our meeting location to Culver’s in Rock Falls, which the group felt would be better suited for our meetings.

We also discussed events to participate and volunteer in and came up with some good ideas. In the coming months, we’ll come back with more ideas and come up with a more concrete plan. We do plan to participate in the Rock Falls Sesquicentennial celebration in some way.
