Social Club Minutes - Wednesday, March 6, 2019
Those present: Leonoa Hoenes, Lorraine Pepper, Linda Rutland & Jerry Lemon, Don & June Dougall, Erma & Dick Suriana, Sherry Thomson, Anita & John McNamara, Marge & Viincent Provenzano, Mary & Len Sharpe, Lynda Murphy, Maureen Manning, Elaine & Mike Mosher, Donna & Leon McCrary, Shirley & Jim Fitzgerald, MaryBeth & Paul Haywood, Donna Brunet, Laura & John Durland, Sheila & Jim Meier, Linda & Gary Raiti, Judy Holthouse, Marge Rimer, Marilyn Dolce, Joan & Tom Decker, Anne & Bill Siudy, Rich & Judy Volden, Ed Connaghan, Barb Sappie, Lynn Flint, Dona Haydon, and Elaine McKissick
Mike Mosher presented the idea to the group about taking some day bus trips. He said to think about some bus day trips over the summer and send any ideas to Elaine McKissick and then he will research them. Some places he suggested were Winter Park, Al Capone's restaurant, etc. He will try to keep the cost under $100. When asked how many would be interested in trips like this, there were a lot of people who raised their hands.
Lynn explained that the Florida state law requires committee members to be owners so to get around this, the name of the social committee will be changed to the social club. Instead of being co-chairs, there must be a president, vice president, secretary,, treasurer and liaison to the board. Dona Haydon will be president; Barb Sappie will be vice president and liaison; Elaine McKissick will be secretary; and Lynn will be treasurer and liasion to the board.
She explained the regulations of the new charter. The social club is not allowed to alter the property in any way without the approval of the board. The club cannot donate or buy anything without the approval of the board.
Lynn distributed forms to be used as a guideline if you are in charge of a party as far as keeping track of how many people attend the party, your expenses, etc. All receipts must be turned into Lynn when you complete the forms.
We discussed getting a sign for the recreation area. Rich Volden does not want his name on anything but would like to have a sign. After some discussion of the stipulations regarding the sign, Leonora Hoenes said she is very happy and thankful to Rich that we have the area but doesn't think a sign is necessary. A vote was taken and we decided not to get a sign.
It is still uncertain who is going to be maintaining the area. If maintenance is needed or new equipment is needed, a proposal has to be presented to the board. Then, they will decide if they will pay for it or if the social club will pay for it. They do have money in reserve for maintenance but at this point, it is unclear of what that involves.
We have $2,758.08 in our account.

Since we don’t have the crossovers on the crossover anymore, we talked about a different name for the gatherings. After a brief discussion, it was decided if you are in charge you can call it anything you want.
February Party Report
Donna McCrary said there 59 people at the party. She thanked their committee for all their help. The committee members were: Donna & Leon McCrary, Dick & Leonora Hoenes, Carolyn Baron and Chuck Noonan, June & Don Dougall, and Sherry & Mike Thomson. She encouraged people to host a party emphasizing that if you get a committee together,everyone is good at doing something they like to do. If everyone does their part, it is much easier on the hosts. They turned in $180.24 to the social club.
Horse Racing Party
Next year we will discuss having a party and explain more about it. JoAnn Guy and Anne Siudy have slips for the betting already made up.
Lynda Murphy said that the deadline to sign up is today. Tomorrow the information will be given to the teams. There will be at least 8 teams. After the tournament the group goes to the Sunset Restaurant for the awards. You do not have to be in the tournament to go to the restaurant but if you want to bet, you have to go to the restaurant.
Last year we gave the maintenance staff $50 each for all their help during the year. Leon McCrary made a motion to give the money again this year; MaryBeth Haywood seconded the motion. All agreed.
