Report of the Executive Director: 

Due to traveling and personal issues I don’t have much to report for July. I did hand off some of my duties to board members to help me out and I really appreciate that help. I have been talking with Kelsey and Heather about some possible grants that are coming up very soon. Hopefully we will be able to apply for those.

We should make a push for Members before October and the next Annual Meeting. I will work with Jonathan and Nathan on this. I have been talking to cast members about the membership as well.
