New Business:

M/S/C to approve having D.A.C. mow our lawn. Building Inspection Report: List was shared of all the work that has been completed at the schoolhouse since 2004 or so.

What projects we can work on for 2021: painting, skirting, walls, garage; pruning of the gardens, pruning of brush, trees. Projects Day will be June 5, backup is June 8. Start time 9 a.m. Lunch will be provided. Please bring your own tools, painting tools.

Annual picnic/fun day:

Discussion – there will be no silent auction. Just fun and games and fellowship. We will cater the food. We will make this a celebration of community. Year 2020 brought much hardship, sadness, this will be a celebration of renewal. Date will be: Aug. 14, 2021. Marlys, Helen, Kay, Cindy, Margaret Glass and others will be on the planning committee. Kay will do a power point about the history of Larsmont and the schoolhouse. We will check with our Insurance to see if we are covered sufficiently if we have alcohol at our event.

Other business:

We will be purchasing a plaque for the flag pole and a flag memorial box in honor of Dale Isackson who was our Flag Tenderer for many years. Paul and Cindy will check with Duluth Brass about the plaque, checking the existing plaque, in honor of Mr. Murphy, first. Discussion about our grant money from Lake County: Marlys outlined the agreement made a few years ago that we not “bank” the money, if we don’t have a project to do that we return/do not accept more funds, money would go to other communities to share. Many projects were mentioned that can be done. We will continue to accept funds until all projects are finished. Hire contractor to paint the schoolhouse, have guest speakers, presenting on a variety of issues, do the floor each year, landscaping/terracing.
