Building assignments:  Club members talked about building maintenance and repair of all the farm buildings.  One suggestion was to ask club members to volunteer to adopt one farm building.  The volunteer would be responsible for looking the building over and making suggestions for any needed repairs or future upkeep needs in time to complete if possible (depending on cost and available workforce) before the Fall Festival. With club discussion, Jim Grosz made a motion to ask club members to volunteer to be responsible for watching over one farm building for needed repairs and updates and reporting to the board.  Leo Holzbauer seconded the motion.  Motion carried.
