It’s happening again!   I think you’ll like the program this year.

The meeting will be held at First United Methodist Church from 10 a.m.-noon. The church is located at 214 West Main St.

Topics of discussion include the financial aspects of home-buying, reports from various neighborhoods and community organizations and a preview of the upcoming Homebuyer Education Seminar. There will also be a panel of City officials on hand to answer questions.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. The meeting is open to all Carbondale residents. For more information, contact Sarah Heyer at: (618) 549-5302, Ext. 386 or (618) 525-5525.

Soup is “pot luck” this year – but it does not mean that you are expected to bring anything.  Just that you are taking your chances on food that has been prepared by amateurs without oversight by the Health Dept. 😉
