New Business:

At the special meeting, there was a request for the creation of a common calendar on the town website for all Vernon committees so that event scheduling can be easier, people can be informed.

Mishelle said that would be possible, and all event information should be sent to her by the 15th of the month prior to the event.

Ideas for 2018 Events:

Town-Wide Garage Sale:

A virtual map could be created when people sign up to have a garage sale. Possibly to be held in the beginning of September

Graffiti Contest:

Joyce had the idea for a graffiti contest at Maple Grange, possibly in July. Sidewalk chalk would be used to create a work of art on the walking path. An idea for a theme is needed. Each artist would be given a portion of the walking path to create his/her drawing. Categories would be arranged in ages. There will be prizes for each age group. It can be promoted through the school before the end of the school year.

New Members:

Welcome to Kelly Brooks

Mission Statement:
