New projects: there is a dip in Larsmont Road by the culvert. Lake County is planning on redoing the Larsmont Road. Suggestion build a Little Free Library to be set at the driveway, leave a book, take a book concept. Will need volunteer to maintain books, library when necessary. Suggestion: build little library to look like the schoolhouse.

Suggestion have volunteers open the schoolhouse once a month, in the summertime only, dress to the period, be historians for our building and Larsmont in general. We would ask for donations. Create a docent position. Have archives ready to be read, offer coffee, tea and local history. Duane Madison is willing to volunteer one Saturday a month, he will work with the volunteers. Duane will share names of those on the big picture of the July 4, 1925, community picnic.
