Welcome and introductions

  • Jeff brought an AI report on AI successes over the past month.
  • We were planning to have a table at the Malvern Harvest Oktoberfest on September 9, but the event was rained out. (Maybe we can see about getting a table for a similar event there in early May.)

Social media report
  • In recent months, Barbara has been "boosting" our meeting announcements on Facebook. This month she used the funds to place ads on three local Patch websites.
