Minutes from the September 8, 2016 meeting were approved by consensus.


Recommendation re: Alternate Committee Member - After a brief discussion of alternative committee member(s), this item was tabled.


There was a short discussion about the Lamoine 150 Committee being a core committee with sub-committees being formed for celebration events as needed.


Timeline Discussion - The committee will start creating a timeline of possible events at the November meeting.  Carol will bring materials.  We will remind Stu Marckoon to print off calendars for 2019 and 2020 for this meeting.


Goals Discussion - We’re starting with the goal of celebrating the history and positives of Lamoine.  Further discussion was tabled until the November meeting when we will start work on the timeline of events.


Celebration Ideas - Carol shared a list of ideas generated by middle level students which included lots of food and games.   She will transcribe this list for the next meeting.


The committee discussed creating a “Growing Up in Lamoine” project, time capsule, day in the life of Lamoine, and a parade.  We want to have events for everybody.


Date of Incorporation - Miranda located  an online source that gave February 11, 1870 as the date of Lamoine’s incorporation as a town.


Gathering Ideas - Miranda will make a poster for tomorrow’s town meeting asking people to submit ideas to the town hall.   At a later date, we will be surveying the town.  This will probably be done with paper and online surveys.


Next Meeting Dates - The committee set the following dates for meetings:  November 16, 2016, December 14, 2016, and January 11, 2016.  All meetings will be at the Town Hall starting at 5 P.M.  Agenda items will include a timeline, goals, and gathering ideas.
