The minutes of the July meeting were accepted as presented.

Wendy gave the treasurer’s report. We have a balance of $11,090.02. We received $960 in donations, and had expenses of $80 for the website. Our balance with the Benton Community  Foundation is $50,483.31. The report was approved as presented.

Mary reported on the upcoming event which will be held September 29th from 5-8. She has talked with the caterer. They would charge $700. Wendy moved and Dan seconded that we spend up to $700 for the catering. Mary will send a letter to donors and grantees inviting them to the event.

The Bylaws were reviewed and revisions were made. Chenoweth will type them up for approval at the next meeting.

Don talked with Benton Community Foundation and invited them to our next meeting and the event. He thinks they’ll come.

Dan brought up fidelity insurance. He explained that if the Board does something that generates liability, individual members can be sued. He will ask Sandy Mooers at Willamette Valley Insurance about this.

Meeting adjourned at 3:45.

Respectfully submitted,
Chenoweth Robertson, Secretary
