"MAY 1, 2016 Meeting Minutes"

President Greg Mills called the meeting to order at 6:01 pm and gave the invocation. He welcomed everyone and recognized one out of town guest.

He asked for approval of the April meeting minutes as they appear on the website. Motion made by Jose Miraya and seconded by Ann Brinson. The motion was carried.

Treasurer's Report - Roxane Russell:  Roxane gave the financial reports for both the Fred Anders' and the shag club accounts for the preceding month. There was no activity on the Fred Anders' account The report will be attached to the minutes for permanent record. The storage facility has been rented for $325 for 13 months. This amount includes a security deposit. Some members said they have decorations to be stored. Carlton has a lock he will donate if needed. Jose and Pat have shelving material. Greg and Pat will begin working on the space this week. You can bring items to be stored next Sunday.


Membership - Kathy Beliveau:  There are 2 new members to be voted on. Kathy passed out the ballot. There is one prior member who is returning. We now have 3 new members. Kathy is having difficulty with emails not being delivered. It seems to be those members who have suddenlink as their internet provider. She is working on trying to get it fixed.

A big thank you to Greg and Pat for opening up the doorway to the dance floor. They did a great job!

Social - Sylvia Anders & Ann Brinson:  Nothing planned at the moment. A birthday cake was provided to celebrate members' birthdays in the month of May.

Social Media - Jose Miraya:  Jose again announced that he will be happy to download pictures on TRSC's Facebook page. Just let him know what you want to add.

Ways & Means - Raymond Rigsbee & Martin Cieszko  Raymond and Martin are working on a Reverse Raffle for August.

Sunshine - Doris Johnson:  There has been some question regarding whether to send flowers or a card to TRSC members or family when there is illness or death of an immediate family member. If flowers, what is the cost limit? What constitutes "immediate family"? Nothing was resolved at this time.


Greg gave anyone who wished to comment an opportunity to express thoughts, ideas and opinions on the revisions to the Bylaws. Juliet and Rich commented that a vote could not take place at this meeting because the revisions had not been in the hands of the members for the correct amount of time, according to the existing Bylaws. Greg told everyone that we will vote at the next regular business meeting. Jose suggested that the Bylaws committee meet once again prior to the next business meeting in June.


Nothing at this time.


Greg indicated that there was not a huge showing of members at the Pirate's Cove party. He suggested that the membership think about doing something on their own for the fall SOS.

Frankie Waters asked if there had ever been line dancing classes at TRSC. Someone said there had in the past. She would like for someone to think about beginning classes again. Possibly Sylvia?

As there was no further business, Mike Harrell moved to adjourn with a second from Sue Eubank. The motion carried.

Respectfully submitted,
LaVerne Mozingo, Secretary of Record
