In the absence of Andrea Krygowski Bill reported outreach cards had been sent to two members.
Bud Rubeck reported landscape leveling and reseeding of backyard will commence shortly after snow is gone. It is anticipated an early spring will allow grass to fill in nicely before our next event. He reported McFadden plaque has been installed.
Clubhouse is rented for Saturday the 19th.
Bud and Bill presented pros and cons for 4th of July fireworks. Bud has obtained the Town of Gordon’s financial support for premium payment of liability coverage for $1,000,000.00 thru Spielbauer Fireworks Co., Inc., supplier of fireworks. It will be a Certificate of Liability Insurance thru Spielbauer’s producer, Allied Specialty Insurance, Inc. After a thorough discussion a vote was taken and all with the exception of Jean Kubley and Bill MacLeod approved to move ahead with this years fireworks.
Lynne Rice requested community club participate in fund raising for the Glidden Area Historical Society building project. There will be room for Clam Lake memorabilia which will be more suitable than our clubhouse with the winter shutdowns. Lynne said she will be helping to raise funds and requested a donation from the Club. It was approved to give an initial donation of $50.00 which she will take to a meeting next week.
Bill said reminder notices for membership will be sent out this month.
