Last Regular Meeting August 30 – Our speaker was  Town Manager Joe Calabrigo, who brought along Danville’s new Police Chief Steve Simpkins for introduction. We will have to invite Steve back to talk to us after he has settled in. Joe brought us up to date on how the Town is holding up during this economic downturn (fairly well) and answered questions about activities going on around town.
