MOTION by Bonnie Schmidt to approve the $20. SECOND: Ben Kadel. DISCUSSION: Good to work with surrounding neighborhoods. Will the banner do much?

· Two grant opportunities exist: Community Services Initiatives: Hands Across South Madison under $1,000 and over $1,000. Deadline: March 15, 2002. DISCUSSION: Youth programs, building community in the neighborhood. Let’s write a grant for day care / evening service care so more families can participate in the neighborhood meetings. What about helping neighborhood youths to set up a babysitting cooperative? Let’s produce a neighborhood directory (like Vilas directory) with residents’ names and contact info (pending their approval for inclusion), area organizations and businesses. Candace Pantoga and Jennifer Zahn will pursue two separate grant requests.
