Board Meeting Minutes 6/2/09

PHS MINUTES June 2, 2009


Meeting called to order by Pres. Bonnie Boyd at 5:47 PM.

Members present: Jackie, Ruth, Amber, Lucille, Cindy, Jane, Helen.


Bonnie presented the standing Board committees.  The committees and assignments were discussed, no action.


Reviewed Pat Tubbs most recent report.  Discussed the mailing to PHS donors, need to see letter before we proceed.  Hopefully this letter will not just be a “beg” letter, but be informational about naming opportunities, with ideas like how they could increase their donation over the 5 years to obtain naming opportunity.


Ruth suggested that the Board recognize all the efforts/hard work that Kathy Brainerd has done, frequently without any recognition/pay.  Jane suggested if the Board were to recognize her that there be publicity done.  Ruth made a motion to recognize Kathy Brainerd for all her hard work with a certificate, flowers and a dinner gift certificate.  Lucille seconded it.  Motion was unanimously passed.


Bonnie read the proposed changes to the By Laws.   We accepted the changes.  Ruth will send them out via email and they will be voted upon at the next meeting, so please read them and be prepared to vote upon them at the June 16 meeting.


The wooden leaf tags were shown, and they looked great.  The members present agreed to each purchase nametags with our Board designation for functions that are held.


Bonnie adjourned meeting at 7:06PM
