Unapproved minutes of the 2006 Annual Meeting

Larsmont community Club/Club Annual Meeting
Minutes for May 15, 2006 (unapproved)
The meeting was called to order by President Bill Tranah at 7:30 p.m. Members present: 10.
The secretary’s report was read by Marlys Wisch, motion to approve David Falk, seconded by Jon Anderson, approved.
Budget report for Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2005, read by Marlys, accepted as read. Copies were handed out for all to read.
Suggestion made to call Larsmont citizens and ask for money to support the building fund.
Old Business:
• Insurance - Bill Tranah reported on who the insurance policy covers if an accident occurs when the County is renting the building, and an agreement was made that the County will cover any costs.
Bill also reported on:
• The completion of the porch on the south side of the building, Work done by Turchi and Falk. Nice job.
• Roofing was repaired on the women’s side of the outhouse. David Falk did a nice job.
• Flagpole weight problem has been temporarily fixed by Dale Isackson. May need to change out the whole line soon.
• American Legion is where we will buy new flags, and we can burn the old ones ourselves.
• Painting days - we had two - did white trim only, about 6 volunteers each of the two days. Beverly Erickson made Sloppy Joes and salad for the second day. Cherrol Soiseth donated bars.
• ISD381 donated old blackboards. They will go across the whole front wall. David Falk and Bill Tranah to install them. The corkboard will be moved to another wall. It is needed for voting/election days.
• Louisiana Pacific donated the siding. It is stored in the garage.
• Marlys reported on the 2005 annual picnic. It was HOT. Made approximately $15 profit, had to sell the pizzas because of low attendance.
New Business:
• D.A.C. will continue to mow our grass.
• Marlys reported on Pioneer School Days. 5 booked days in 2005.
• The outhouses need lime or some chemical for the smell. The MnDOT may have some environmentally safe product to use. David Falk will take care of this project.
• Request for 2007 MTCE monies will be $1,700.
• Request for 2007 new project monies will be approximately $3,100. We will get half the project done this year and half in 2007.
• Walt Barthell donated $100 toward the building project, toward the cost of doing the siding.
• Discussion on what profit we can make on events or activities that the schoolhouse gets used for, such as rummage sales, etc. Moved/Seconded/Approved to have people who use the building for activities that generate money from sales donate 5% to 10% of their profit toward our building fund.
• Another suggestion is to send out a letter to all LCC members asking for a donation of a minimum of $25 toward our building restoration fund. Make it tax deductible, have a “donate by” date. If you donate $100 or more, you would get a plaque with your name on it.
• Painting day, tentatively set for Friday through Sunday, August 25-27, 2006. We will be painting the siding before it goes up on the walls.
• Annual Picnic will be Monday, August 28, 2006, 5-7 p.m. Pizzas, with tossed salad, pop, bread. Discussion on what to do with any leftovers. Give away any opened boxes, sell whole unopened pizzas.
• No other new business from the floor.
Election of Officers:
Moved/Seconded/Approved to cast an unanimous ballot for Bill Tranah, President; Walt Barthell, Vice President; Marlys Wisch, Secretary/Treasurer; David Falk, Groundskeeper; Dale Isackson, Flagpole Tender. There were no nominations from the floor.
