LAST MONTHíS MINUTES for the Board of Directors Meeting on May 8, 2005 were approved. Thanks goes to Linda Delgado for submitting last monthís minutes!



TREASURER: The current account bank balance is $9,527.40. Tony wants to resign the Treasurer position, as soon as we can get a replacement for him.



MEMBERSHIP: There are a total of 88 new and returning members.



HOSPITALITY: We are looking for someone to take over this area of responsibility. Bill Kurtz has graciously offered to help out with this until someone steps up and takes it over.



The July† PROGRAM information is not available. Grafting and growing plants from seed were suggested for future programs.



LIBRARY:† Nothing new to report.



AFFILIATE:† A good idea was suggested to have one of our attending members purchase new books for our library while at the CSSA convention this August.





MINI SHOW:† Judy has volunteered to coordinate this starting in May this year. She has suggested that the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards could be in the form of Showbucks or nice pottery. In addition, a person would be rewarded with Showbucks just for just bringing in a plant. The Showbucks would be $.25 each with a maximum of someone bringing 4 cacti, and 4 succulents, totaling $2.00. The person could bring in more plants, but the maximum payout would be $2.00.



ANNUAL SHOW:† The custodial fees are still pending for Buchser Middle School. Tony Bassano is working on the final fiscal information for the Show and Sale.



BY-LAWS:† Nothing new to report.





-        We received a nice letter from member Anne Shein, letting us know that she has been feeling much better. We missed her presence at the Show and Sale.

-        A motion was proposed and approved to pay Sam Keeton $44 for providing our raffle and door prize plants.

-        Life-member Ed Eby sent us a letter with a membership check for $15. Even though he lives in Oregon, he still stays in close touch with our club.



OLD BUSINESS: We had some discussion about having another show in August. Bill Munkascy wasnít present so we didnít have his input.



The meeting was adjourned at 11:45 A.M.

The next Board meeting will be on July 10, 2005, at the Prusch Park Meeting Hall at

10:30 A.M.
