Mr. Deakyne: Architects and contractors must come back with better numbers.
Ms. Kent: They may not be able to come to another Rec Board meeting. We need a decision.

Permission to explore in conjunction with Wardenburg. Interested? Yes.

        Ms. Kent: Good fundraising opportunity.
        Mr. Deakyne
