   On Wednesday 18- November Bogota Beautiful had their monthly board meeting. At the start of the meeting Chairperson Amaru Bustamante took a moment to thank outgoing Councilman Robert Robbins for his service as first Council Liaison  in the organization's history. Councilman Robbins congratulated them on their work and agreed to continue as an active member.

They also have started open rehearsals for anyone wishes to join. They will also sing at the Borough Tree Lighting on Friday 11-December and are again accepting reservation to sing at private resident, of group function in Bogota for the Holiday season. Members of the  Schiller Institute Bogota Community Chorus were in attendance, and inquired about joint performances.
