The fall meeting of area event managers will be on Wednesday, September 7, from to at the newly remodeled MiddletownArtCenter, 130 N. Verity Parkway in downtown Middletown.

Subjects on the agenda for the September meeting are:
·Low attendance at some events

The gatherings, led by local realtor John Sawyer, while informal, are designed to present ideas for group discussion and action by those interested in moving forward with a positive idea to make Middletown’s events and attractions better. Two short presentations will be on the agenda with much of the two hours devoted to discussion and positive plans.
