Board Report: The board met on February 14th and approved a new auction form. it was decided to have meetings every month. We will still have Store Treks but they will be in addition to rather than a substitute for a meeting. We will also meet in March starting in 2018 unless our meeting is the same weekend as SAKE. The new rules for the auction form include listing each item separately with a common name, if possible, and limiting the number of items a person can bring to the auction to 10 each meeting. Members with auction items will be expected to arrive before the meeting starts in order to lay out auction items and to provide a completed auction form.
Membership Report: As of the May, 2017 meeting we have 11 family memberships and 18 single memberships for 29 memberhips total. That is 42 people.
Treasury Report: We have $1,102.65 in the treasury as of May, 2017.
