  • Community Elections. Next month we will be conducting our election for the Council from 2019 through 2021. There are four positions to fill. Thankfully, we have four community members who are willing to serve on the Council. They are Susan S., Georgia, Teresa, and Susan M. Please keep these people in your prayers as we prepare for next month’s election.
