We put people in seats with community which has helped.
Rolf – Peter Ohnstad – has done an excellent job as Bar Manager and increasing the revenue for the Post.
A 501C3 was created. The Foundation has acquired an Attorney to ensure all funds are accounted for properly for the remodeling of this building.
ANY members are welcome to go and sit with the Accountant to review the books at any time.
ROLF – AS OF TONIGHT we have $10,950 in the bar account. The Post account $2,067 in it. AT the meetings I feel the Foundation should provide a report for each meeting. There were expenses from the Army / Navy game which are due the Post from the Foundation. Essentially the Post is not healthy right now and needs to raise funds. The bar helps but cannot carry the Post.
BILL – Why is it difficult to get the Financial Reports? MATT – Finance Officer has not been present since September to help the Post. BILL – It is an elected position. MATT – we will have an election in February for a new Finance Officer.
MATT – MOTION TO ACCEPT FINANCE OFFICER BRADY BEAUCHAMP’s RESIGNATION. SECONDED – Discussion – TABLING for now until By Laws are reviewed to properly remove this Officer.
Matt – we will Post the position for 30 days and Bill will notify membership of the opening.
TRACY – we have an empty position and should VOTE on it. BILL – ByLaws do not state HOW to remove an Officer.
Saturday 25th BBQ at 2pm – POST EVENT to raise money as we are striving to send four kids to Boys State this year. Post is sponsoring TWO BB teams.
Planning event for Super Bowl as well to help raise money for the Post
2nd VICE COMMANDER – PUTTING TOGETHER SQUARES FOR A POOL TO RAISE FUNDS. Bartenders will be selling squares. DON TENNILLE – Normally squares are $20 but we should sell $10 and $5’s. PROPOSING - $20 a square/NO ALCOHOL SOLD and treat it like a 50/50 with $10 to the Post and $10 to the winning member. STEVE – need a flyer it is JUST squares with NO ALCOHOL and should be $25.00
MATT - ELECTION COMMITTEE – according to By Laws, I appoint them. Tracy “Milo” Dalton will be the head of the election and Scott – Adjutant to be part of the Committee ALONG with George Sousa. We will need TELLERS and BALLOT COUNTERS.
