Calvin:    Update on Stillwater City Meeting

Calvin offered to take city officials on bike rides to highlight our concerns

                Focus on Lily Lake and Stonebridge school crossing


Mike: Youth Race Reimbursement Program Proposal

MOTION:  $500 be allotted for youth race reimbursement program,
