President Munns called the meeting back to order. The August minutes and the budget report were approved. There being no set program for the evening, President Munns brought us up to date on how many volunteers were still needed to fill in at the Vesta Show and took questions from the attendees. Members Merrel and Kathy Miller and Joann Allen were available to sign up volunteers that night.
There being no further business the meeting was closed at 8:15 p.m.
Joann C. Allen, Secretary
Another month has flown by and here we are in the middle of the Vesta Home Show, Halloween coming up, beautiful fall colors to follow and Thanksgiving only a month away. The older I get, the faster my years go.
The County business continues to progress at a leisurely pace, which in a way is good, because a bunch of politicians are not sitting around dreaming up ways to spend money and raise taxes. Other than customary business, the Grass Ordinance, which involves dilapidated buildings /blighted properties, will be discussed again at our next meeting, which is Tuesday. I believe most differences have been resolved and we should move forward with finalizing the ordinance.
The education light is really beginning to shine in Fayette. Superintendent King has incorporated the ARISE2Read program and this will be most helpful in getting each and every student to perform at grade level. Many churches are providing volunteers to tutor the students in reading and we hope you will volunteer. The program will train you.
Speaking of the Vesta Home Show, be sure to come out and see the beautiful homes and places to live in Ainsley Manor. Also, you will see many new things that you may want to incorporate in your own home. Just come up Hwy 196 and follow the "Vesta Home Show" signs.
Take a look at these community opportunities: Hickory Withe Presbyterian Church at 2420 Donnellson Drive, will be having their annual Craft Show and Family Festival this Saturday, the 22nd, from 9am to 3pm.

Come and have a good time!
