Hello everyone! Here is your Monday Update, on a Tuesday! Yesterday was the first time I was physically back in the office after the Covid encounter, so things like paying bills and doing deposits took priority over this update!
WRA Board Meeting Update
The WRA Board meeting in Lake Geneva last Thursday/Friday was a lot of fun and educational! I met a number of great people, and had a lot of great conversations. A few highlights are:
• There is no WRA dues increase for 2021.
• A communications audit helped determine that the Tech Helpline was underutilized, and as part of the new budget, that $15,000 expense will be used in other ways to better serve the members.
• There was conversation about whether or not WRA will absorb the cost and offer Zipforms to the members once NAR stops offering it at the end of 2021. No formal decision.
• Dates for 2021 events were announced. I'll put a calendar of those together soon and put it on the website.

I won't be answering the phone or email during these virtual sessions.
This past weekend Ben and I built chicken coop #2 on the Funny Farm! We got the little house for free, but added on the white edges and some interior support, re-assembled the dog kennel fencing, added hardware cloth and bricks to the bottom of the dog kennel fencing (to critter proof) and then did some decorating! Right now our baby chicks are in this coop, but this is also where we will keep any of our adults who go broody. (Decide they want to try and hatch out eggs.) Always lots of projects on the Funny Farm!!
