Question about membership dues. At this time we are not changing the fee structure: $35/individuals $20/seniors $50/household (2 votes). We are considering an “annual sale” in January to encourage everyone to join each year.

Historic South Atlanta signs – lots of interest, so we need to consider a reorder.

Parking challenges on Martin

Carver Neighborhood Market is selling backpacks full of school supplies for $5-8.
