As this is the weekend before Thanksgiving - suggestion made, and accepted to move Nov AdCh Workshop to NOV 4/5
Also discussion about floating concept of going back to CANTERBURY [for those who travel slightly longer distances, this would
make it much easier for them] - perhaps one at Canterbury, and one on site each year??  Will send out a survey to ask if this
would work.

5. Other/ Old business:?

Social events & Media
CHOIR TRIPS:

Nothing this summer??
NO!!  Investigate a possible short weekend trip to St. Simon’s Island: I’ll be contacting the Episcopal Church there ASAP. 
Probably Christ Church - where worship has been going on since 1736!
2017 Fond Du Lac??
YES - three Adult Choir Members in attendance [I know Jenny was one of them - the other two??] will be doing some
investigating of additional locations for us to visit - e.g. Nashotah House, Dora County [apparently absolutely beautiful in the
summer.  Thinking of a Wed - Wed visit.

FUTURE: BACK TO THE UK!!
The time frame suggested was FIVE YEARS: Post-Christmas, 2020; that year Christmas Day is on a Friday.  I will be contacting
St. Paul’s ASAP.
ALSO MENTIONED: having a Choir Element to the next Honduras Trip

Music Dept. Fund: will be reviewing re my records $7,000, church $13,000
The new TV system - still a good thing?

ABSOLUTELY!  However, see if the middle section of the back-board could perhaps be removed?  Flower Guild wants more
hooks - advised: put up as many as you need!!
Please move the red music stand on the electric piano re glare - DONE

Russell Home again?  Other outreach?
Anything else?
