Juliet then announced that we have 70 previous members who have paid their 2015 dues and with the new members we have added the last 2 months including this month made it 78 Members and 1 Lifetime Member. She stated that she has sent letters to all that have rejoined for 2015 and that is currently 20 members who became inactive at the end of February and their names will be removed from the Roster in a few months if they don't renew.

There were no guests present but we welcomed our new members that were voted on last month Brenda & Russell Turner.

Sunshine - Franky Waters:  Franky is out of town so Doris Johnson is handling for her and reported that everyone seems to be doing fine and no one to report on this month.

Social - Lynette Rigsbee:  Lynette reminded everyone about the Fish Fry that will be coming up soon on the 28th of March at Cieszko Construction Company in Havelock beside the Waffle House. It will start at 3pm and we plan to eat at 5pm. Don Midyette will be cooking the fish and all the paper products will be provided. It is a BYOB and there will be soft drinks if needed with ice. Doug Lyon donated $100 to purchase shrimp to be cooked and so did Butch Connor and Donna Boulia to make a total of $200 to purchase the shrimp. There will be some fried, steamed, and Roxane is doing a shrimp boil.

Lynette needs volunteers to go get the dance floor and help set it up so please contact her so she can tell you when and where to meet. Several said they would help and Martin Cieszko will provide a truck to pick it up. It needs to be picked up that morning and set up before the party.

Please let Lynette know if you would like to bring a side dish for everyone and be sure to bring your chairs. There will be music provided by Raymond and Doug for us to dance to. Will be a fun time so please come on out and bring friends and there is no cost to anyone!


Dance Floor - President Cieszko brought up that the members voted last month to allow Don Midyette to purchase the dance floor and he has spoken with Don and it was agreed that he would purchase the floor for $150. The Membership voted to accept that amount and TRSC will be able to use the floor if needed again at no cost.
