IMprint editor's report

newsletter out in a more efficient manner. After a discussion, Bob agreed to continue to
write his monthly Scribbles column.
Bob said he is going to continue to update the website and will add a link to the
Program Coordinator's report
Keith said he reached out to folks who attended the picnic and seemed interested in
participating in events. So far, the response has been slim; however, he will continue to
stay in touch with them. We also discussed several ideas for a winter program, including a
possible game day and researching free or inexpensive venues in Bergen County to hold
any events. It was generally agreed that in light of the success of the annual picnic, the
membership might be interested in another event. The committee is going to continue to
explore possibilities to increase member interest.

with a snow/reschedule date of Sunday, February 15, if needed.
