The Youth Lacrosse MN Annual General Meeting will take place on November 3rd, 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm. We have seating for 50-60 members, so there may be some folks standing. Please try to send a representative to the meeting to assure that you have a say in the direction of the YLM. Remember, we administer the league that you vote on us to administer.
We will have several important positions open this year, including President. We also have had a request from Deb Mau to find a replacement for her as Treasurer. She has been doing this job for more than eight years, and I think we owe it to her to find someone to take on this important role.
The meeting will be held at the Black Box Theater inside Bloomington’s City Hall. The address is 1800 Old Shakopee Road, Bloomington, MN, 55431.
