Mr. Hatcher called the meeting to order at 7:04 PM. He stated that the Minutes from last year's meeting had been emailed and mailed to everyone and copies were available for everyone present. He asked all present to take a few minutes and go over them. This having been done, he asked for any deletions or additions; there being none, the Minutes will stand approved as presented.
In the absence of Mr. Hereford, Mr. Hatcher gave the Treasurer's Report. The balance of the General Fund is $3,435.95, with the major expenses being the monthly ones, telephone, internet, etc. He asked if there were any questions or comments regarding the Treasurer's Report. There being none; the report will stand approved as presented.
Mr. Hatcher said that he felt this past Old Christmas was one of the, if not the most successful ones we had had in several years. We had around sixty people in attendance; and, these were the ones who had signed in. He felt there might have been more than that and that all did not sign in as they were asked to after some had entered the House.
Discussion was then held as to the number of Trustees for the Board for the coming year. Don Johnson made a motion to leave the number at nineteen (19). This was seconded by Jim Spencer; and, passed unanimously. It was noted that Delmas Saunders had said that he would resign from the Trustees this year. He felt he was not able to help at his age and wanted to give someone else an opportunity to help. Although, the Board had nothing in writing so stating, this is noted. Mrs. Lillian Baldridge made a motion to make him an Honorary Member. Jim Spencer seconded; motion carried. It was also noted that we lost a member, Marshall Davidson, this past year. We would make him an honorary member as well. The following were nominated as new members to the Board of Trustees - Ann Latta, Janice Allen and Dawn Stambaugh.
