Minutes of the November meeting were approved as presented. Kathy mentioned that she will not send a thank you letter to donors since Wendy did that when she sent out her letter.

The treasurer’s report was reviewed. We have $16,940.42 in our account. Chenoweth reported that we had received a donation from the City of Brownsville, but she wasn’t sure if we had received a check from the City of Halsey yet. She will check with Wendy. The report was accepted as presented.

It was decided to give out $8,000 in grants for 2024. The grant process was discussed. Notices will be put in the paper and on Facebook in February. Deadline for grants will be March 31st.

It was also decided to send $4,000 to Benton Community Foundation.

The calendar for 2024 was discussed.

Meeting adjourned at 3:25.

Respectfully submitted,
Chenoweth Robertson, Secretary
