September 11th, 2018 (Tuesday evening): RRCT Annual Meeting of the Members & Board

September 11th, 2018 (Tuesday evening): RRCT Annual Meeting of the Members & Board

6:30 pm, Yarmouth’s Log Cabin (American Legion Hall), 196 Main Street, Yarmouth.

We treat our annual meeting in a purely business-like fashion, taking care of any membership votes required by our bylaws at 6:30pm during a regularly-scheduled board meeting which begins at 5:30pm.  Join us to observe the earlier meeting if you like, or join us at 6:30pm to elect new directors (membership vote) and officers (board vote).   The proposed expansion of various Yarmouth Schools may require a membership vote, since the proposal would require the amendment of a RRCT Conservation Easement.  At this point, this vote does not appear to be likely to be ripe or required in 2018.   Join us to raise any other issues, or get to know us.
