• January Holiday Dinner – The Annual Holiday Dinner meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 18th at the United Methodist Church, beginning with drinks and appetizers at 6:00 PM and dinner at 6:30 PM, served by Bond Catering. Menu will consist of baked chicken, ziti with meatballs, green beans, chef salad, and cookies for dessert. Members dinners are free and guests will be $14.00. RSVP date is Friday, January 13th. Due to scheduling conflicts, Greg has been unable to get the speaker he was planning on so asked for ideas on a speaker we could contact. Keith suggested Linda Richter with the Imagination Library Program. He will contact her. Ann and Vonda will get with Julie to discuss table centerpieces. Greg also suggested we mail the invitations to members in addition to emailing in hopes of getting better attendance. Vonda will send them in early January.
• Growing the Group – Brian Yaiser asked if we have reached out to all area businesses on the outskirts of the village (i.e. Middleport Family Health, etc.). We need to come up with ways to improve attendance and membership. It was also suggested that we need more ideas for exposure and ideas to make the RHBPA more beneficial to members.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:39 AM. The next meeting will be Wednesday, January 18th at 6:00 PM at the United Methodist Church.
(Please note: There was no meeting in November as only 3 members were in attendance.)
