Eric Speck will make name tags for new members.
9. Old Business:
Kit Reno reported that a membership survey, which had been included with this year’s membership renewal package, confirmed that the club has a greying population. Other themes emerged: 1) Several members indicated a willingness to serve on the Board of Directors. 2) Rather than serving on committees, members are more interested in volunteering on an ad hoc basis for specific projects. 3)The club needs more activities specifically geared to children.
10. New Business:
A projector has been purchased for the Club and a sound system has been donated and installed. At present it is being used regularly by the Yoga Group and the "Friday Night Movies." It also has the capacity to display power point presentations if needed for future presentations.
A movie committee, currently made up of Crissy Sant, Kathy & Mark Jones, and Howard Huberty will be choosing the titles for upcoming movie night events.
There will be a rummage sale on Saturday July 30 from 8am to noon. Proceeds will go to support tennis, movie nights, and other club activities for children.
11. Additional Items
Anthony Cordasco raised the issue of whether the Club’s bathroom should be available to non- club members. After a lengthy discussion, it was decided that Eric or Kit would make signs to be placed on all 3 toilets indicating that it’s a delicate system and that only toilet paper should be flushed. Bobbie Einhorn stated that she has an excellent cleaning person looking for new clients. She also asked if any member could recommend a carpenter.
The meeting adjourned at 10:50 am
