Present:  Roger Sweet, Eric White and Becky Cummings.

The minutes of the February meeting were accepted as read.

Bob Switzer has a copy of the photo Hilliare wanted to use for the cover of the town report.  If it can’t be used as the cover next year, the commission could possibly use it as part of their report.  The image may copy better on plain paper rather than colored cover stock.
