Ken distributed the Jim the Wonder Dog brochure and the group was delighted with the brochure. Great!
The Quilt Show brochures were appreciated, as well.
Rose Ann will be submitting the MDT application on schedule. A problem is that we do not have 2009 dollars committed by the Commission prior to the deadline.

Rose Ann Huck brought information from 3 projects Arrow Rock will be including in affiliate requests.
The Jim the Wonder Dog video clip was reviewed by the group and found to be very usable.
Saline County hosted the Old Trails meeting on July 30. The group enjoyed being in Marshall for the day. Stan and Rose Ann will be our representatives on the steering committee. The regional cuisines project is integral to the Old Trails work. The next meeting is August 26 from 5-7 p.m. Those going will meet at Bank MidWest at 3:30, College and Highway 65.
Rose Ann attended a bus tour to the Mississippi River Hills project earlier in August on a bus tour. She was totally impressed with what has been accomplished.

Pam T. confirmed that a number of people from Kansas City are coming into the Waverly area on weekends. They need to be pulled on east into Malta Bend, Marshall and Arrow Rock.
Kathy Fairchild sent information via Cynthia that the first farmer’s market was a big success. They will be the first Saturday in September and October, too.
