Needs Assessment trial email was discussed. Some committee members had trouble sending a reply in the body of the assessment. Larissa said that you must open the email first before sending a reply.

The email list for Needs Assessment recipients was discussed, Iris mentioned that the Girl Scouts of Lamoine, Historical Society and Lamoine’s Little Children be added to the list.

It was decided that the Needs Assessment will be sent out to organizations immediately to follow after the next meeting.

 Stu will send out the Needs Assessment by Town of Lamoine email address. He will monitor emails and will collect responses to be reviewed later by committee members.

Ginger will update her research and will compile a list of phone numbers for established Community Centers in the nearby areas.

Larissa feels we should wait to visit other Community Centers until we have feedback from the Needs Assessment.  Brett agreed and the committee confirmed.

Larissa mentioned it would be great to the Lamoine Community Center as a social gathering place, where we could have meals together, coffee, and farmers markets.

As a group we discussed involving Friends in Action and Eastern Agency.
