Vance Parrish was also present.

Meeting was called to order at 3:00 by President Rella.

The minutes of the August meeting were approved as presented.

Don gave the budget report. We currently have a balance of $6,475.69. We switched to Office Suite which cost $60, which was paid by Don as a donation.

Old Business:

Lance reported that he checked out No Dinx, as Lori Garcy had suggested. He used MoreInk in Albany because he could get a better deal. No Dinx does not do rack cards and MoreInk does. He updated some pictures on the brochures. It was thought that we might be a little less specific in the future so that brochures can be used for more than one year.

New Business:

The selection process for Board members was briefly discussed, since Lori needs to make the changes that were noted previously.

Vance reported that there will be more articles in the newspaper in the future. He is getting member bios up to date.

Don brought up fundraising. He has contacted Georgia Pacific, and they will possibly donate $1,500. He has also contacted Bear Mountain, and there is a possibility that they will donate $500. The employees at Bear Mountain must make the decision. He will be trying to contact McFarland Cascade and Cascade Pacific. He will be sending letters to 2018 donors.

Sharon brought up the possibility of having an event to attract people. We might do a Chamber After Hours event. We should contact businesses in Brownsville and Halsey. Sharon will find out contact information for Pacific Power & Light. Board members need to bring a list of donors to the next meeting.

Due to several members being absent on the first Thursday in October, the next meeting will be October 10th at 3 p.m.

Meeting adjourned at 3:45.

Respectfully submitted, Chenoweth Robertson, Secretary
