V.P. MEMBERSHIP: In Mariam’s absence, Mary Campbell stated that Jane, Jim, Sally, Ann, Sandra and Norbert would give input to the Roster which is outdated. Jane stated that Jim received a new member form from Sutter Kunkel, our Founding Father’s son. At present, we have three new members. Mary will coordinate with Mariam to see when it is convenient for her to meet with everyone. She offered to have the meeting at her home.

V.P. SOCIAL: Marie reported on her upcoming events. Since we are discontinuing the BYOB for our parties (members who wish to bring their own drinks are invited to do so), she is hiring Medina’s Protective Services so there will be a security guard on duty. She gave Phil the information sheet and will send a copy to Sally. The cost is $25 per hour. The guard keeps an eye on things and watches to see that no one drives with too much to drink. Norbert commented that the building has a security service on call.

Halloween Party, October 30 - It is a potluck. Regarding decorations, Marie will check to see what she has; and, if needed, she and Jane will go to Michael’s to purchase more. Norbert stated that they had 10 folding chairs (someone ran off with the rest), 12 barrel chairs, and five 6’ tables in the recreation room. Marie will check with Bob Chapman to get more chairs, if needed. There will be a flyer in the Nachrichten.

Christmas Party, December 10 - There will be a hosted bar and Norbert offered to be the bartender. Marie has hired a magician and there was discussion on how he would be used. It was decided that he should do a stage show for one hour. There would be music at the cocktail hour and after dinner. Schedule: Hosted Bar: 6 PM; Dinner: 7 PM; Magician: 8 PM; Music (possibly John Carrow) from 9-11 PM. Bob Chapman will furnish tables, etc. There will be a flyer in the Nachrichten.

Phil and Ann will get together to do an inventory on our storage room. Norbert suggested that we have a table made for our large bell – a gift from Grindelwald Switzerland. He stated that Glen Ireland could possibly do this.
