Executive Director's Report

Buildings. Bob has been investigating Tiny houses or manufactured homes and some options are less viable due to the housing market.  Manufactured home seems like the most reasonable option.

finances. HPC finances are surprisingly good.  $93,000 in the bank.  We bought some standing air filters (like standing fans) for the center.  Sammm is talking again about possibly doing financial data entry for $200/mo.  Sammm and Earl are working together on entering and balancing the center's financial data.  

Repairs. There has been some progress on repairs such as mounting a medicine cabinet but it was off center and needs to be re-addressed.  The sink is permanently fixed. Gary Guilbeaux is the new GoodwheelChairs volunteer.  He will be on vacation so perhaps David Blackwell can help.  The job involved taking phone messages, meeting with people to sell the chairs and so on.

Since there was no further business, the meeting adjourned at 2:56pm.
