Business Exchange/Sharing:

We went around the room and around ZOOM to reconnect in our first in-person meeting in months. We discussed business sharing, Pandemic impacts, and personal lives. Some highlights were as follows. Dick Anderson reported that his team won yet another softball championship in Florida after a grueling 7 game schedule. Mark Arnold announced he is moving to Florida soon and has accepted a job as a jeweler in Naples. Jim Erickson is preparing his hemp crop for sale to retailers. Keith Kovacevick reported that Les Jones Roofing has a nice backlog to start the year. Randy Korn has a ZOOM meeting today with the city, not an easy way to conduct business. Several members have received the COVID Vaccine already. No one has had significant side effects.
