Other topics will be the evaluation of the Meekerpalooza on June 7 and summer performing arts events.
A proposed field trip to the Colorado Shakespeare Festival at the University of Colorado at Boulder is being considered for MACC members and for the youth members of the MACC Venturing Crew 91 and Explorer Club 91.
