Lion Shipley reported that there was a shortage of $11.90 per person in attendence at the sweetheart dinner in February. This represented the difference between what was budgeted for meetings not held in January and February and the actual cost of the dinner. That amount will be added to the next invoice for dues but only for those who came to the dinner. This arrangement was previously agreed to by the membership.
8. New Business:
Because we’re way behind in nominating and electing a slate of officers for FYE June 30th 2013 it will be necessary to wave the rules in the Constitution regarding dates by witch the nominating committee must have it’s work done and this will have to be done at a regular meeting. Therefore at the 2nd regular meeting in March next week (March 15th ) a motion to do this will need to be made, seconded and voted on by the regular members persent. This can only be done at that (next week’s) meeting so please come and be prepared to vote. Hopefully, a slate of officers for next year will be announced and It will not be, in the words of Lion Gibbons, “ absolutely the very worst slate ever nominated in the history of this club”. But don’t hold your breath.
King Lion Campbell adjourned the meeting at 12:59 PM.
