Board Meeting Minutes
Glidden Drive Association Board Meeting
January 20, 2020
Members Present: Jean Elste, Danny Mantynband, Gretchen DeCoster, Lynda Szczepanik, Ann Glessner.
The meeting was called to order at 9:00 a.m.
The meeting minutes from November 12 were approved.
Financials: Gretchen provided the financial update (see attached). It was noted that the prior year's printing cost was actually $362 more than reported due to a credit received making the year over year comparison skewed. A motion was made and approved to roll over the existing CD and not withdraw any funds for potential 2020 expenditures.
The Board discussed feedback received from the Holiday Party and overall it was determined to be very successful and with good attendance. A few items were noted for future parties including having a bell to aid in getting people’s attention as well as making sure we request people inform us of any special dietary restrictions when we send future party invites.
Winter Dinner Party:
The Board discussed party logistics and fee collection for the February 29 Winter Dinner Party to be held at the Nightengale. The cost will be $32 per person. Jean will send out a member email with party sign up details including selecting one of four entrees. The cut off for sign up will be February 22. There will also be verbiage in the email to please contact us if there are any dietary restrictions.
The Glidden Drive Annual Meeting will be June 27 at 10:00 at the Sevastopol Town Hall. The Board is investigating a few options for potential guest speaker/topic.
The Annual Summer Picnic will be August 8. We will use the same caterer as last year but will try to have the grilling done on site. The Board discussed other venues but decided the Sevastapol park with covered pavilion was beneficial in case of rain.
The next Board meeting will be April 21 at 9:00 at the Sevastopol Town Hall.
The meeting was adjourned at 10:15 am.
