Time frame associated with waiting for the drive-thru election and what changes can be done next year to decrease the wait time.
"We like the drive-thru election. It's more convenient than the in-person."
"Keep up the good work."
"I appreciate all of the members who took the time to come through and vote for a new director. It's a sign of a healthy membership that they are willing to come out and have their voice be heard, and hopefully we will see everyone again next year." - Rus Ogburn, General Manager
