Extra door and cabinet fount in the bio lab, why? They need to go away. John put the door in there as a possible table, go up decision that there is enough counter space in the room. Cabinet came from photo lab, Shirley will look to find it a home for it within or outside of RMM. If not Stepen R. will remove it.

Sally has said that she has had people ask her about Phtoshop and Ilustrator classes, do we/can we teach them? Shawn will teach Photoshop if Sally or someone else will sort out the details for the event/classes Possibly charge $10 a head and donate money to RMM
