He designed a chart showing our “Operating Money” to show our balance during the various months of the year. He will continue to update this for all future treasurer’s reports. Mike said we were lax in giving any recognition to the people who funded our scholarship monies for the past three years. All of our money goes into the “same hat”. We should recognize them by a plaque, the newsletter or at the annual dinner. Maybe we could get businesses involved. Claudiasuggesteddesignatingthemoneyfromthe50/50raffletotheScholarshipFund.

Since Glenbrook and ABVM students need to walk, he will have them go to his office so they see his statue of Casimir Pulaski and ask them questions of what they learned while at the museum. He will have a little treat for them.” With those changes, Mike made a motion to accept the minutes and Rock seconded. Motion carried.
