Mr. Hatcher reported that (as those present could see) the parking
lot and walkways had been finished. The porch had also been worked
on and completed. During the living history held the previous
week, a down-pour of rain had shown there to be a leak between
the house and the floor of the porch. Mr. Hatcher stated he had
talked with the contractor and that the leak would be sealed
by some means. Work still to be done on the parking lot included
- stops to be put in place, lines drawn, and the lighting fixtures
put in place.
Mr. Hatcher stated that the easement still had not been heard
from and was in Frankfort somewhere. Mr. Jimmy Reed stated that
Mayor Fannin had ordered a twenty-four (24) foot flag- pole that
morning to be placed on the May House property. Dr. Perry stated
that he felt the pole should probably be placed near our historical
marker, in the front of the House. The flags to be flown will
be the Kentucky First National and the 36 Star Federal Flag.
Mr. Davidson informed the group that he had been contacting
various individuals regarding the dedication ceremony for the
Ivy Mountain Monument.
Dr. Perry informed the group that we had sold out of Jack May's
War and Scalf's History of Kentucky during the living history
weekend. Jim Spencer made a motion that we purchase ten (10)
of each. Don Johnson seconded. Motion carried. Dr. Perry stated
that he would order the books.
Mr. Hatcher, of the Computer Committee, gave a detailed description
of what would be needed. After a lengthy discussion, Delmas Saunders
made a motion to purchase the "system and a place to store
it" recommended by the Committee. When asked Delmas stated
that there were too many parts or components needed to specify
therefore the use of the word "system". Seconded by
Don Johnson. Motion carried.
There being no further business, Don Johnson made a motion to
adjourn; seconded by Patricia Johnson. Motion carried.
Patricia A. Johnson, Secretary
