Minutes were read and a correction made. Last month members talked about who had been the people responsible for paneling and staining the wood when the clubhouse had been originally bought. Arnie and Betty Miller paneled and stained the wood and members now know that Carol Lindegren played a big part in getting the job done as well.
Velma Roeske gave the treasurer's report which was approved. The discussion of replacing the furnace was raised and members are still debating if that would be a cost-effective move at this time. A request has been made to the Ypsi Bar for gambling funds. Members also reviewed the mowing that has been done by Donna Kastet and all agreed that she does a great job. A thank you will be sent to let her know.
Members again discussed painting the foyer. The carpet has been laid. The painter originally hired has had some problems. Lucinda Lien will get in touch with her and possibly have her return the paint so someone else may be hired to do the job before winter. Nancylou Jensen, the club decor person, is still in need of Christmas decorations that anyone could donate to the club. Ellen Orr and Jim Lindegren have said that they have a piece that they could donated.
The club received a letter asking for any sort of donation to Kids Against Hunger and make the check out to the First Community Credit Union. Dale Marks moved and Orr seconded to donate $100 and a club member will check on legal issues related to that.
Members also discussed holding a few meetings in the Jamestown area once in a while, to make it fair for those who always travel to Ypsilanti every month. Meeting at meeting rooms in nursing homes in Jamestown was suggested in order for residents living there to attend. Orr offered her apartment complex that has a room for meetings. Winter months are held at the Ypsi Bar and Grill.
Jim Lindegren told a funny, true story, about his airborne days when a friend of his parachuted out of the plane and fell through a church. Pastor Norm Winkelman told a joke.
It was decided as a group, that if a person's name was picked for a door prize and the person had been at the meeting but had to leave early, the person would still get the door prize. The county nurse will be at the next meeting to give the flu vaccine.
