Agenda for FOGL Meeting January 23, 2018

January 23 , 2018 at 7 p.m.
in the Hearthstone Board Room, 6720 E. Green Lake Way N

The primary purpose of the meeting is to decide whether or not to disband the group. Those who started the group in 2003 are now “super seniors” and have retired as officers and lake monitors. They hope that some “young seniors” and Green Lake users will step up to carry on the good work or the group must be disbanded.
