Calling all BHOSA Members

Please plan to attend our next monthly meeting at the Colony School 

Wednesday, August 11, 2021, at 6:00 pm

On the agenda will be Committee Reports and a special Nominating Committee will be formed to recruit qualified candidates for the Board of Directors Election in September. We will finalize plans for Old Settles’ Day and the Parade. An important change to our By-laws, previously voted on by the Board of Directors and Members, will be presented and formally adopted by Resolution at this meeting. Your vote counts. The changes to the By-laws reflect our efforts to streamline the document, allowing the Board to better serve its members, maintain our assets, and meet the needs of the Bishop Hill community. Review a copy of the revised By-laws HERE.
