Annual Meeting – 2015
The Larsmont Community Club held its annual meeting on
May 11, 2015, at the Little Red Schoolhouse. The meeting
was called to order at 7 p.m. by President Bill Tranah.
The minutes of the 2014 meeting were read and approved,
as was the financial report.
President Bill Tranah and Secretary/Treasurer
conduct the proceedings at the May 2015 Community Club
The Club will continue to have D.A.C. mow the
Old World Windows has been notified that we should have
the funding for them to do the final repairs to the
windows in 2016.
Marlys, delegate on the Lake County Recreation Board,
reported on the new method of funding from the Board.
The Club will now get an annual allotment and will not
have to write grants each year, only submitting two
vouchers each year for our allotment. Our grant
submission was for $6,500 a year starting this year,
2015, and we can “bank” what we don’t spend and roll it
into the next year to fund our “new
Projects Day – Dale Isackson reported on the new type of
bulb he will be using to light our flag, which will
provide many more hours of use and be more cost
effective. Marlys mentioned that the ash tree in back
yard looks dead and may need to be cut down. Bill
suggested painting just the white sections of the
schoolhouse this year. There is a new type of paint
(Zinsser’s) that should last longer. Our Projects Day
will be July 8, starting at 9 a.m.; backup day is July
29. We discussed the damage made to our garage door.
David Falk will follow through, first contacting Lake
Connections, whom we feel did the damage, then the door
company and our insurance company.
Discussion on usage of the schoolhouse: keeping the
“heritage theme,” whenever we consider what to allow. We
will not need to change our by-laws. We will keep our
security deposit at $40 per event. Marlys will add one
statement on our security contract, “if any damage,
client will be responsible for full extent of repairs.”
We will continue to ask for the “up to 10%” contribution
of the profits of any event. If it is someone outside of
the Larsmont membership list or area, we will ask them
to become members. Marlys will have control over who,
what, when. Marlys will also develop a list of what is
expected of clients, to be shared with them when
booking. We also discussed having at least two
members of LCC as backup people to open and close the
schoolhouse for events when Marlys is not available.
Will need to get keys made.
[Tongue in cheek] Celebration for 2114: Paul asked who
wants to volunteer for a committee to start planning for
the next centennial celebration in 2114. He had made the
request in the newsletter, but no one contacted him!
For the annual picnic, we discussed having a daytime
Saturday event, maybe about 4 hours, perhaps 10 a.m.-2
p.m., possibly to be catered. Our first choice for date
is August 1, backup will be July 25. Bill Miller will
contact the possible caterer. Ideas for entertainment
are: music, races, games, arts display(s), clowns, face
painting, speaker(s), ongoing activity of some sort.
Need to form a committee.
Other ideas for events at the school:
community-wide rummage sale; Marlys will contact Renee
Crassweller for her expertise. Each household that wants
to be involved will be responsible for their own
“produce” – getting it to the school, setting it up,
pricing it and selling it.
Marlys gave an update on Gustav Mattson and family. Will
pursue this further.
