Old Business Discussion and Treasurer’s Report:
Bill called for a discussion of old business. There being none, he then moved to the treasurer’s report. As the treasurer could not attend today’s meeting, Bill gave an abbreviated report. We began the month of June with approximately $2,100 in the treasury, $600 was expended during June leaving around $1,500.
New Business Discussion:
Bill discussed the possibility of our club sponsoring a charity event, such as a car cruise to raise funds for a charitable cause, such as St. Jude Children’s Hospital. A discussion was made of the manner of raising the funds: internal through the club or member’s individual contributions; whether to support a national organization or local; a one-time event or an annual event, etc. The proposal was tabled for now, with a request for any recommendations the members may have in this regard.
Before proceeding with other new business, Bill reviewed recent past events:
Thanks to the Justices for sponsoring June’s Pistons & Pints at the law firm of Hill, Peterson, Carper, Bee & Deitzler. The event was well attended and all had a great evening.
The Hawk’s Nest cruise was a success with 13 cars and a great luncheon at Pies & Pints at Fayetteville.
