October 5, 2016


The meeting was called to order at 7:00 p.m. by Board Member Paul Ellis. Minutes of the previous meeting were on the tables.  There were two corrections to minutes of September 7, 2016. The first was an explanation on the treasurer’s report about income/profit, and Karen Ellis asked to have the word “profit” replaced with “income” in the sentence about the fish food dispenser.  The second was the 2017 Newsletter discussion, and Karen asked that it be added to the New Business section.  Volunteers are needed to pull together the newsletter as Karen declined to be responsible for it this year.  There was some discussion on how it would affect our membership if it was not published, what is required by our By-Laws, and possible options to make the Board Member ballot and the annual financial report available to the community.  Motion to accept the report as corrected was made by Mike Felix and seconded by Walt Wark.  The motion carried.

Treasurer’s Report was given by Karen. Motion to accept the report was made by Mike and seconded by Dale Wark. The motion carried.
