Helllllo Region 20!! October was a combined meeting at
Foutch's Pub and we had a full house! Thank you to all that came out to
participate. Welcome back Richard Alderman, good to see your face back.
Secretary and Treasurer reports were read and accepted. Marte gave her last LO
report of the year, her and Zipper have headed south. Be on the lookout for
sunny reports from the south! Larry Flood will step in for our snowbird. As
reported last month there are a couple bills to keep an eye on - HB4736 raising
the price of plates and HB4651 involving endorsements. Next bill up that we
should watch is HB4853 which is proposing to raise the cost of endorsement
class from $25 to $50. Awareness is working very hard and is just at the brink
of breaking 700 students taught for the year! GREAT JOB Awareness TEAM!!! Every
student taught is a life saved and helps promote keeping us all safe. Thank you
