LBG April Meeting Minutes
7 p.m. Thursday, April 14th, 2022

This is the first in-person meeting where we were back to our regular meeting space.

I apologize for running a little late this month and missing some of the notes for this meeting. The Church has completely rebuilt the A/V system in the sanctuary and I was working with Frank to do some testing to see if we can get set up to simulcast our meetings over zoom and/or youtube. I missed a few items that I should have noted, such as the new visitors' names.

Presenters: Officers

New members/visitors: We had a handful of visitors, but I'm afraid I didn't capture their names.
