Don called the meeting to order at 3:30.

The minutes of the December meeting were approved as presented.

Don gave the budget report. We have $17,061.25. Don also reported that he would be sending out the donor letters. He reported that he had spoken with Lori Garcy about returning to the Board, and she is not ready to do that yet.

Upcoming election of officers was discussed. Kathy and Chenoweth will act as a nominating committee, and present nominations at the next meeting.

Board membership was discussed. Keren will be resigning since she is moving to Sherwood. Jack Sayer, Norma Hoover, and Jad Lemhouse were brought up as possible members. It was also mentioned that we might want to talk to Samaritan Health regarding having a representative on our board, as well as somebody from Georgia Pacific. Lance Wilson agreed to become a member and joined us today.

2019 grants were discussed. We will give out $8,500 in grants. We will decide at the next meeting what to do with the balance.

Lance discussed “deliverables” such as coasters and that the QR code will connect the user to our website. Tag lines were also discussed, and we liked the shorter tag lines.
Lance will check on costs of coasters, letterhead, business cards, and envelopes.

We also discussed getting a pre-paid cell phone so that people would have somebody to contact when they have a question. Vance will help with this.

Vance is also looking at automatic deductions.

Meeting adjourned at 4:45.

Respectfully submitted,
Chenoweth Robertson, Secretary
