Please attend if you are interested in shaping the future of the district website. We are currently working on a new WordPress-backed version of the website and intend to launch this month. The meeting is at a residence inside the Mill Creek Townhomes complex. The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:00P and all formal decisions will be complete by 8:00P, but individuals may stay after for additional discussion or development work. Food and beverages will be provided. I cordially ask that you remove your outside shoes after entering; you may bring slippers or other clean footwear if you desire. Please RSVP to WebsiteLiaison@afgdistrict5.org if you plan on attending, and I will respond with the address.
