The meeting opened with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America.

We then followed through our meeting in short form due to lack of a quorum.

OLD BUSINESS:

Meeting Minutes:  The meeting minutes for June 21st were accepted with a motion by Frank Berger and a second by Carole Swank.  Our June minutes were the last complied by Ann Roadarmel.  Ann has been doing these minutes since 2005.  There was a lot of discussion and thanks to Ann for all her hard work and dedication to the Association.  She will be missed for her effort on the minutes but also for her updates on what all is happening in our community.

 

THANK YOU !!!! Ann Roadarmel

A motion to accept it was made by Frank Berger and seconded by Dan Latorre.

 

New Maps : We finalized the membership list for the maps and Susan Adams (membership chairman)has  forwarded that list to the printers.  There will be 2000 copies printed for distribution. The membership committee will look at possibly of including a map with the prospect list mailing. The additional weight might bump the letter costs up, it will be further discussed before the mailing is done.
