April 2017 – Minutes


APRIL 6. 2017

Present were: Don Ware, Lori Garcy, Mark Running, Kathy Rogers, Wendy Parker, Jan Schilling, Mike Smith, and Chenoweth Robertson.

Wendy moved and Jan seconded that the minutes of the March meeting be accepted as presented.

Don gave the treasurer’s report. The new laptop has been set up.

Eight grant applications were discussed. Don explained the background of the Harrisburg Gleaners. They formed when there was a split with the Central Linn Gleaners, and about 25{804db834c654aaffce78ceea9b7337e4c1d02c61f5c5dac8a46e3722755a2581} of their recipients live in the Central Linn School District boundaries. The board decided not to fund their request since the majority are outside of our service area. The application from the Methodist Church/Lion’s Club was also discussed, and denied. It was felt that the grant would have been allowed if the Lion’s had applied. The following grant applications were approved:

  1. Calapooia Food Alliance – $1,500.00
  2. Central Linn Gleaners – $1,000.00
  3. Calapooia Watershed Council – $900.00
  4. Sharing Hands – $1,200.00
  5. Pioneer Picnic Association – $600.00
  6. Central Linn Youth Safety Organization – $1,000.00
  7. Meals on Wheels – $1,000.00

Total $6,500.00

Mike moved to spend $6,500 and Jan seconded the motion. Motion was approved to spend $6,500.

Don will contact the grantees, and announcement will be put in the newspaper the first of May.

Invitees for our May event were discussed, and each member made a list of whom they would be inviting. A list of all invitees will be made for our files.
