be Rob Cooper and Raymond Williams. Bar opens at 5:30, dinner served at 6:15,
and meeting begins at 7 sharp. Hope to see you there.
A $1,000.00 donation request from Orcutt Youth Softball Association was

cages, ground leveling, new DG and turf. Thank you to Annabella and Miranda

a chairperson for the Saturday night dinner/dance and our permitting process.
