TWIN RIVERS SHAG CLUB
"JULY 10, 2016 Meeting Minutes"
The meeting was called to order at 6:04 pm by President, Greg Mills. President Mills also gave the invocation.
There were no visitors to be recognized.
President Mills asked if there were any additions or corrections to the minutes as they appear on the website. None being brought forward a motion was made by Henry Heath and seconded by Ann Brinson to accept the minutes as they appear on the web. The motion passed.
Treasurer's Report - Roxane Russell: Roxane gave the financial reports for the shag club accounts for the preceding month.
With no changes to the financial report, the report will be attached to the minutes for permanent record.
Membership - Kathy Beliveau: Kathy was not present but new member Tully McDonald, who was sponsored by Carol Jordan, was voted into membership.
Social - Sylvia Anders & Ann Brinson: Per Sylvia there is nothing major planned for August. A possible SOS party in September.
Greg is working with Memories on a date for our Christmas Party so there will be no conflict as there was last year. Our party will remain the 2nd Saturday of December.
Social Media - Jose Miraya: Jose was not present to report.
Ways & Means - Raymond Rigsbee & Martin Cieszko The silent auction held on June 25th was a huge success with no expense to the club. A big THANK YOU to Roxanne for donating the mountain cabin; to Butch and Doug for their DJ services; to Martin and Lana for fixing the "Summer Cooler"; to Henry and Brenda for running the Half & Half; to Claude & Kathy for letting us use Attitudes that Saturday night and to Lynette for all of her help. We're still looking for the missing pecan pie!
Sunshine - Doris Johnson: Thankfully there is nothing to report.
LaVerne asked that everyone remember Norman Tripp in their thoughts and prayers. He suffered a stroke Thursday evening and is in Nash General.
Voting on the revised club By-Laws was held later in the meeting as members continued to come in.
Greg brought back 10 (of 1,000) numbered prints by artist Vic Gillespie from the ACSC Workshop in Columbia, SC. He is willing to come for an autograph session for those sold if any one wants one. The suggested retail is $75; our cost is $25. Anything over $25 will be the club's profit.
TRSC hosted the ACSC Workshop in July a long time ago. If the club is interested in hosting again we can bid for 2018 but our bid must be in by the September workshop. Greg commented on how many people are still talking about the party that TRSC put on for that workshop. Greg thinks we can do it again and possibly top it. We're going to start working on getting a bid together. He will need volunteers. The bidding is wide open for the location; you just can't host two workshops back to back.
Lynette read a thank you note from our Texas visitors. They were here for a week in May and heard one of our promo spots on the radio. The lady left her jacket which was returned by Roxanne. They were just overwhelmed by that and with the friendliness of the club members. They promised to return.
On Friday mornings around 6:30 am Attitudes sponsors a TRSC message with John Moore. The club is paying for a spot with Justin Rouse on Saturday afternoons for 2-3 minutes.
Greg distributed SOS Fun Monday tickets packaged 5 to an envelope. Each ticket is $10. The cash is to be returned by August 21st. All members are asked to help sell just 100 tickets. The SOS card money is due by September 1st.
Next Saturday, July 16th is the GDP party which starts at 6 pm with DJ Betty Brown. The party is open to all - no cover charge.
On Saturday, July 23rd Raymond will be playing for the Sugarfoot Shag Club (Goldsboro) at the Lane Tree Event Center. Should be a good time.
There will be a fund raiser for Junior Shaggers at fall migration. The tickets are $10 each for a week at the Ocean Bay Club.
The changes to the By-Laws have been on the website. These changes are an effort to try to streamline the club and being progressive in adding new members. Greg briefly went over the changes that the club voted on tonight. The revised completed By-Laws will be posted on the web for permanent reference. Greg asked for any further discussion. Patrick moved, with a second from Raymond, to accept the By-Laws as shown on the website. There was more discussion with Patrick amending his motion, followed by a second from Ann Brinson to approve the By-Laws with the removal of the reference to the lifetime member. There was further discussion again. The voting results were 6 against and 22 voting for the changes.
Carlton moved to adjourn with a second from Patrick. The motion carried.
