The Strasburg Community Action Network (SCAN) met for its quarterly meeting on Sept. 29. Seventeen members were in attendance.
The minutes and treasurer reports were approved. A donation has been made to the village for the Long-Term Park Fund, and $500 has been paid to the Shelby County CEO program for high school students. This is the third year SCAN has been a sponsor. A $200 donation to the Stew-Stras PTSA Angel Tree also was approved.
The purchase of new playground equipment for the park is on hold for now as the village insurance will only approve prefabricated equipment.
Two successful Burrito Days were held with funds going to the 2021 Car Show.
The 2020 Farmers Market and changes for 2021 were discussed.
The new Little Hatchets Soccer was discussed. There are three teams of younger children and two teams of older children. Games have been played every Sunday at 1, 2 and 3 p.m. during September and ended Oct. 11. SCAN thanks the coaches who have helped out with the practices and games. Turnout each Sunday has been good.
Committees were formed to plan a monthly Gnome Give-Away in 2021 and to look into having a Village Christmas Tree.
