The Baggo tournament was discussed and it was agreed that it should be held outside this year.

It was thought that a Bingo game could possibly be held on Saturday morning. Steve Bosco will check out what permits might be needed.

Discussion of a possible “battle of the bands” or local “North Aurora’s Got Talent” will be looked into.

At this point there will not be a French Market this year. The garage sale may be separated from North Aurora Days due to traffic congestion and detours. A community garage sale may be better served if planned in conjunction with a community clean up day.

Chris Coakley and John Rauch will not chair the ice cream eating contest this year. The Committee will be looking for someone else to chair this event.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:30 p.m.
