City of Bellingham annual $500 grant received but not yet deposited. Sec of State annual renewal ($10) to be paid. Total available funds as of this date $1,976.12. Report approved by the board.

Newsletter: The Board thanks Greg McCracken for his work in preparing the newsletter. It is ready to send out to about 1350 neighborhood recipients.

Picnic plans: picnic on for 9 Sep., noon-3:00. Joe and Garey will pick up tables, chairs, and grill on Saturday 8Sep. Kin and Ginny Davidson will cook chicken, hot dogs, and burgers.  Joe will invite city and other local officials, candidates, etc. Tim will man the check-in table to collect membership dues.

Martin Carter is removed from the Board due to excessive absences. He is still eligible for neighborhood association membership assuming he meets the usual criteria. We now have ten active Board members. Our by-laws require a minimum roster of nine members for the Board.

New business: Finalized plans for a membership drive phone call party at Joe’s house 7:00 PM 28Aug. All available Board members encouraged to participate. Tim will update list of current and recent members to work from. We will divide up the list and make calls. Objective is to extend personal invitation to come to the picnic and encourage attendance. Joe noted that if we can pick up about 25-30 new members (and their dues) we solve the newsletter cost problem for next year. Getting more neighbors involved in neighborhood issues is also an objective – we need to capture their interest as well as their dues.

Meeting adjourned.
