BGMS Minutes, September 8, 2020
The meeting was called to order by President Ed Kubu at 6:35 p.m. who then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance. We had no new members or guests present.
The March, June, and August minutes were up for approval. The March and June minutes were approved with no corrections. The corrections to the August minutes are as follows (this is under Old Business in regard to a club meeting place): “Ed Kubu said that he found out the “going rate” is about $100 per month. Deb Strickland is going to talk to Barbara Dye to see if we can use her shop for our equipment and meetings.” In addition to these corrections, the Berman’s and Dale Broszeit’s names were misspelled. My apologies! A motion was made to approve the March, June and corrected August minutes by Deb Strickland and seconded by Jim Hudspeth. The motion was approved by all.
Faith Farley gave the treasurer’s report. A motion was made to accept the report by Deb Strickland and seconded by Jim Hudspeth. The motion was passed.
Club Meeting Place: Deb Strickland gave a report on building use for club equipment and meetings. She talked to Barbara Dye and she has no availability so we need to look elsewhere for a monthly meeting place. We discussed the possibilities and our church is now closed and others may be to outside organizations due to COVID19. Other meeting possibilities were mentioned such as grange halls and fire halls. We will continue to look for an appropriate place.
Victor Museum: Darrell Coyle reported that he has not heard from them so there are no updates.
Field Trips: Jim Hudspeth gave a report on recent field trips and reminded everyone of the trip to Lincoln on Saturday, September 12th. He will send out an email with more information. Jim mentioned that he is the field trip director and that if someone wants to go to a certain locale, then hopefully they would be able to lead the trip since he is likely unfamiliar with the area. They could also pick the day and time for the trip. Please see him if you have any locations in mind.
New Chairs: We now have our new padded chairs. Thanks to President Ed Kubu for pricing, ordering, and bringing them to the club meeting.
We need volunteers for a nominating committee for the upcoming election: Faith Farley, Jim Hudspeth, and Julie Berman volunteered to be the on the nominating committee.
We have volunteers for some of the club positions next year but there are several that are still not filled:
President: Ed Kubu
Vice President: Pam Chulick
Treasurer: Deb Strickland
Board Members: Faith Farley and Dale Broszeit
REMINDER: Please let Faith Farley know if you have a new address or phone number.
We also discussed advertising for the club. Julie Berman mentioned that the UPS Store can make posters. The posters would give information on meetings, field trips, and what we do as a club. We will continue to discuss this possibility. Another avenue for advertising would be the Bitterroot Star or Ravalli Republic. Dale Broszeit will find out more details, such as cost.
REMINDER: Our next meeting is Saturday, October 10th at 2:00 p.m. The location will be announced at a later date.
We took a break at 7:24 p.m. for refreshments and 50/50.
50/50 Winner: Julie Berman, Total:$27. Julie donated her half of the winnings to the club. Thank you Julie. Also, Faith Farley wanted me to mention that the 50/50 winner in August, Deb Strickland, also donated part of her winnings ($10) to the club. Thank you also to Deb.
Door Prize Winner: Ken Chulick
A motion was made to adjourn the meeting at 7:45 p.m. by Faith Farley and seconded by Deb Strickland. Passed.
Thanks to the Berman’s for once again hosting our club meeting!
Dana Jong, Secretary
