Dan Rogers spoke with Mike Mills from DOT about budgeting for landscaping at Neeley Road and Woody Mill Interchanges. He thinks he has made progress in increasing the amount that was allocated for these areas.
Congratulations to Linda Welborn for school board primary election.
Jamie Cosson gave a nice overview of the origins of Camp Weaver and where it is now. We went on a tour of the facility with all the new changes. It is very impressive. The ropes course in particular looked inviting, as well as the opportunities on the lake. Lonnie mentioned that we should visit www.PiedmontVoice.org and list Camp Weaver as a huge positive aspect for our part of the county.
A discussion about community volunteers and a collection was taken up for Camp Weaver hosting our meeting.
Our next meeting is June 14th at Alamance Presbyterian Church at 7 p.m.
