Scholarship – Greg will get information for this to Colleen Albee at the Guidance Office.
Music In The Park – July 17th – Ann continues to work on this but would like a few volunteers. She will put together a list of tasks so that members can choose one to help with. Ann F-B will make a template listing the tasks to make available to members. Ann F-B has volunteered to help with wineries. Meadworks should be contacted to see if they would like to participate. Ann B also has the name of a Beer Works facility that we can contact.
Treasury – Suggestions to Put Money to Good Use – Please continue to think of ideas of how to use our money for the good of the organization and the Royalton-Hartland area.
Town of Royalton Bi-Centennial Year – This will be next year. We should start thinking of ways to participate.
Evening Mixer Meeting – It was suggested we have an evening meeting so that members who are unable to be at the morning meetings can attend this meeting. It will be scheduled for Wednesday, May 11th beginning at 6:30 PM with cocktails and appetizers. The meeting will be called to order at 7:00 PM. Greg will see if the Masonic Hall is available. He also has a speaker in mind that he will contact. All members are encouraged to bring a guest who might be interested in joining the RHBPA. Greg suggested we have two evening meetings a year to be scheduled in April and October.
List of Area Businesses – Ann F-B has compiled a list of 130 area businesses. We discussed sending e-vites to them for the May 11th evening meeting.
Newsletter – It was suggested we produce an RHBPA Newsletter. Greg suggested publishing this quarterly, listing community events coming up. It could include a business related article of interest to members. We could also feature a member’s business with details about its operations and offerings to their customers.
Goals for next meeting – come up with ideas for our newsletter.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:36 AM.
The next meeting will be Wednesday, April 13th at 8:00 AM at Darrell’s.
