about the heritage and agritourism roadshow.
Program Director's report: Dan, Russel, and Pat had a meeting about her position. Her primary
focus is to find funding. She will be the logistics manager for the plover festival. She might work
on putting a welcome bag for registrants of the festival. She will be needing more formalized
budgets to go forward with some of the grants. She will be helping with annual reports as those
are also needed for the grants. She will look into adding different segments such as art to the
plover festival. Logistically we me have to look into using the school for the festival--this will be
determined by number of registrants.

used as matching funds.
Brochures: Dan will check with Danielle to see if the Tourism Board would like to distribute some.

to do this. This would need to be updated a couple of times a year.
