October General Meeting Minutes
November 7, 2023
The general meeting was called to order by Dianne Patterson at 10:03 am at AM VET 312.
We had special quests from North Port 12 days of Christmas Fundraiser from chairperson Heather & videographer Allison. Heather never knew what Back Pack Angels did with the hygiene products that City Hall collected for us during the 12 days of Christmas. Susan did an excellent job explaining how Back Pack Angels started and what we did monthly and Susan did it on the first take. It will be on City Hall and on our website when available per Frank.
The October General Meeting Minutes are on the website.
