Minutes of May 2008 Meeting
The regular monthly meeting was called to order at 7:02 pm on May 12, 2008, by President, Mary Lou Bruggeman.
The members present approved the minutes of the April meeting.
In the absence of Treasurer Colleen Holt, Mary Lou read the Treasurer’s report which ws approved by those present. Current membership is 60 members.
Children’s Haven Room Decorating- Work day May 3rd went very smoothly thanks to the advance planning by Mary Lou. A slide show of the work in progress, and the finished room was on display at the meeting. Mary Lou reported that the carpet is scheduled to be cleaned on Tuesday for $70, which includes scotchgard.
Autocross/Car Show- Phil Rankin reported that the OMRSCCA group said they would do the autocross with us if they got all the registration monies, we get the workers, and pay for all the expenses (getting the trailer here, refreshments, lot rent, advertising, etc.). It was decided by those present that this would be too expensive if we do not receive a portion of the income from the event.
Calendar Sales net profits to date $314.25. A few calendars are still available from Mary Lou.
