North Aurora Days Committee Meeting

April 24, 2013

7:05 meeting called to order

Mark Gaffino welcomed committee.

1. Crossway Chapel will not be able to help out with volunteers this year. That will leave us pretty short on volunteers especially with parking at Mooseheart (will mainly affect race). Need to reach out to community for volunteers/participation.

Craig W. reported on website updates. He is going to enable “buttons” on website and also all forms for participation in all events will be available for download online. Anyone who needs forms for their event, please let the Website committee know ASAP. Also, please inform committee of any changes to any events this year so that all information can be changed to be correct.

Please email any updates to
