The Larsmont Community Club held its annual meeting on May 7, 2012, at the Little Red Schoolhouse. The meeting was called to order at 7 p.m. by President Bill Tranah. The minutes of the 2011 meeting were read and approved, as was the financial report.

Larsmont Community
                    Club Annual Meeting 2012Old Business –

• Report on 2012 Maintenance monies. We received $2,200.
• Report of 2011 annual Larsmont Community club/Volunteer Fire Department picnic, Margaret Glass reported.
• Report of 2011 activities in the schoolhouse.

New Business –

• President Bill Tranah reported on the flag pole repairs and difficulties with expenses and work (including the loss of a brass piece) done by Todd Signs. Decided that we will not call them again for any work to be done.
• D.A.C. will continue to mow the lawn.
• Discussion on what amount we should ask for 2013 Maintenance Monies. A request of $2,400 will be made.
• Discussion on what amount and what project to ask for in the New Projects Monies – sheetrock the front hallway or caulk all the windows, inside and out. Decided to get bids/estimates on caulking the windows and write a grant for the amount and, if necessary, do a two-year grant submission. Also suggested that we use our Building Maintenance Fund monies, if necessary. Bill Hermanson will get the bids/estimates. Our Building Maintenance Fund has a balance of $3,590.
• Discussion on list of projects that need to be done in and around the building. Suggestion is that a person(s) take on a project, take responsibility to get it done, ask for help, buy products if necessary, keep receipts for reimbursement. Then at 2013 meeting report on what they did. This in lieu of having one projects day, as we have been doing. Tom Wright has said he will donate time and some materials to work in the Memorial Garden. Bill Tranah will have chips for us to use as mulch.
• Annual Picnic. Margaret Glass will take charge of this project. We will go to Whole Foods Coop, will follow the list of foods as last year with more or less on certain foods. The picnic will be on August 20 at 5 p.m. Banner is being hung early, removed on August 14 for election day, if necessary, then up until picnic day.
• Reported that Bev Erickson is our delegate to the Lake County Recreation Board. Marlys Wisch is an alternate. Bev’s term is January 1, 2012 through December 31, 2014. She then stated she will not run again and will be looking for someone at the 2014 meeting to take her place.
