Meetings, meetings, meetings. It seems that is what this job is all about. There is the usual monthly meeting that need to be attended but there is also special ones that comes up. This month there was two special meetings the first was a meeting with the Silicon Valley Power representatives who came by to interview us and see what we would need if we were to convert to Solar Power. It seems that we are in the running for a grant to provide solar panels to not for profit organizations. This is a program which SVP has had for a while and which will be ending this year. At the time of this meeting there were still five (5) groups in the running for the grant. The names will be sent to SVP customers who signed up to support this program several years ago and will vote to select the recipient, we should have an answer by the end of January or early February. More information to come as we receive it. The next major meeting was our District 13 meeting. The Commander, Sherry Henry, was very pleased with the efforts being made by the Post to renew and recruit members into the American Legion. Currently
the District is in 10th place out of 30 districts in the state.
