The treasurer's report was approved.  We currently show a balance of $2072.88.

 

Old Business:

Station 7 catered a dinner for the team the last night.  We could only provide 3 meals to the team this season due to the schedule.  Lana organized the dinners that were provided.  John and Sue provided the goodie bags that were given to the team for each road trip. 

 

Gil thanked all who worked the table this season.  There were a lot of donations provided that were sold to raise money. 

 

Friday, Dec. 19 is the Christmas party.  The members may have to pay a little more for the meal because the treasury is down from previous years.  The social should start at 6 PM with dinner at 7 PM.

 

At the next meeting elections will be held.  The meeting is scheduled on October 21st. 

Jeff was asked to be parliamentarian.  Tom will run the meeting because Gil is having both his knees replaced on Oct. 13th.

 

New Business:

Tom asked if we could thank the front office for all they have done for the Fan Club.  It was decided that the Fan Club will order pizza for the front office staff.  Gil will check with Chris to see when lunch could be provided.

·                     Charlie Silcott suggested that we do a canned food drive.  He offered to get a truck to take the cans to the selected charity.  We agreed that two such drives could be conducted, one during the first half of next season and one during the second half.  Gil will talk to Chris about this.  Joseph House and the Food Bank were mentioned as possible charities.  It was also discussed that the Fan Club could do some incentive for those who donate. ( A raffle for an autographed bat)  The drive could start at the Fan Fest.
