Motions for 11/15/20:

Submitted by Paul M on 11/1/20

I motion to have a birthday chip drive through pickup once a month either the day of birthday night from 7:10-7:45 or the following Sunday from 7:10-8:00pm. I think this would allow people to pick up their birthday chip in a safe and socially distant manner.

Submitted by Lily S on 11/7/20

[Amended 11/8/20] motion to remove both 10 p.m. Saturday meetings (Zoom and in-house) from the schedule, as members are neither volunteering to chair nor attending at this time.
