Saturday Market Stand Sign-Ups

A proposal was made to the group, for SOS to purchase an iPad for an official SOS Secretary, to take notes at the weekly SOS meetings. The proposal required that the Secretary simply commit to the scribing of weekly notes and in return, get to keep the iPad for their efforts. The group seemed very accepting of this idea, however, I have already been approached by a member who is willing to donate an electronic tablet for said purpose—Amazing! How we shall select a Secretary?
