Oceanna announced the if members wish to communicate with the board of directors, the member should come to the next board meeting and address the board in person, or write a letter that would be read aloud at the board meeting.
Owen reported that we have obtained our $10,000 line of credit based on our $10,000 CD as collateral. We borrowed $2,500 from Marcus Barnes for one year at 6% interest. The balance of the $10,000 or $7,500 came from our bingo account. The finance committee proposed that we make monthly payments on the line of credit that equal 1/12 of the outstanding balance.
Miles made a proposal that the Anomaly Archives catalog our library of books in return for an expanded partnership between the Center and the Archives. The board accepted Miles' offer in principal subject to Miles providing a written proposal.
Miles also addressed the board regarding a garage sale and other outdoor activities. The result of the discussion was that Miles would inform the board as to what he needs regarding garage cleaning and by what date.
Bob announced that:
RESOLVED, that we adopt the new mission statement as a tentative statement
RESOLVED, that we approve Bob's recommendation to make Mary Glover an Associate.
Since there was no further business, the meeting adjourned at 3 pm.
