From the nothing-new-under-the-sun notice board
News from the Meeting, April   via Zoom:
Denny Williams (Meadows Bank) shared information about the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the requirements for a loan through the Payroll Protection Act.  All the loans are through banks, not the SBA, and it appears smaller local  & regional banks are the best positioned for smaller businesses. (Banks only make 1%, so it's not exactly a money-maker for them...)  Matt Thornton (US Bank) also shared information. Please call or text or email them for information and links. Joel Muller also has links to information. 
Speaking of Joel Muller, he contributed $25 towards Jonnie Pullman's bell for her technological savvy setting up the zoom meetings and presented her (remotely) with specific tools for her use, including WD-40, a wrench, screwdriver and a clamp (?). 
More for Joel:
Important for us to know:
We are looking for program ideas for our Zoom meetings (and after, of course.)  Please let us know if you have suggestions. One suggestion is for our members to share how Covid-19 is affecting their businesses and how they are coping.  Sound interesting?
- We are looking for hands-on service projects to take place after we are able to reassemble with normal ore even semi-normal social distances!  Suggestions so far include Food Bank, tree planting, Robinhood Park maintenance.  Do YOU have an idea??  Please let Adrienne know: athomle@msn.com or 763.438.2327 (m)
