NECP Bank Account Update
John Schulte responded to Luke’s letter and informed him that ANA had been removed from the account. Kevin was a signer on the account and has not signed anything that removes him from the account. Egan and Luke will go to the bank to find out the actual status of the account.

Farmer’s Market Update
Adam volunteered to reach out to Sean about what his role was as the liaison to the Farmer’s Market. Adam discussed combining efforts with Cultivate NE and the Farmer’s market. Potentially combining the events on Thursday nights.

Audubon Park Pool Table
The pool table is here and looks great. ANA is considering paying for half of the pool table. Mitch is pricing out foosball tables as well. Egan suggests that we fund the foosball table. This could come out of NRP funds. Kevin will speak with Mitch about 50% assistance with the foosball table.

Sonja noted that we need to add the pool table purchase to the budget. Luke will add the pool table to the approved budget.

Discussion of historical use and programming of the park building ensued.
