Cyndi Treaster with PRIDE provided an update. Weight Watchers will start to hold meetings on Wednesdays in the PRIDE building. The lounge is up and running. The community library still has some work to be done, but it is close to completion, it will probably be ready to open after the rummage sale. Enough volunteers have agreed to work the library so it can be open about 25 hours a week. The PRIDE group got the message to only have City Superintendent Justin VanWinkle blow down the boiler, they ask that he continue to write in the notebook when he does it.
