What is a home meeting?
There is an opportunity for you to invite friends and neighbors to hear about our district and the referendum project from our superintendent in an informal setting. It is not necessary to serve food, but some hosts or hostesses provide drinks and a small snack. You do not have to open your home to people that you don’t know. Groups can range from four to forty based on your comfort level and the size of your home. The meeting lasts about 45 minutes and is designed to get facts into the hands of Lumberton taxpayers and voters. Thank you for considering hosting a home meeting. You can contact Mrs. May with any questions 609 267-1406 x6614
