treasurer's report was made by Steve Fieno, 2nd by Tim Rodabaugh


New Business: 

1) Marlene reported on cemeteries.  She suggested we attempt to contract someone to take care of Green Bentley, Turner & Crandall.

Tim has someone he will contact to see if he is interested - he will report at the next meeting.   


2) Gloria reported that Rick had sent the revised resolution to the lawyer.  She asked Rick to follow up with the lawyer. 

Marlene made the suggestion that perhaps the Amish / Mennonite's could be contacted for an estimate on a new roof.  Once

the building paperwork is completed we will begin the grant process for needed repairs. 


3) Steve & Rick have worked on the fence which looks great.  They have 3 to 4 hours of work left then it will be finished. 


4) Anita reported on Fund Raising.  There are 29 tables reserved thus far with hopes for more.  


5) Tim reported on the newest additions to the societies holdings: 1) An antique seed broadcaster & bag 2) An antique

International Harvester horse drawn mower & 3) A postcard watercolor done by Talitha Botsford.  


6) Rick reported on the tombstone holders he is making.  They are being used to set old headstones back upright.  He had

photos of them for all to see.  This costs $20.00 for each one.  Gloria would like to see this be a project whereby


people could "adopt" a grave / marker for a Military Veteran, etc. We would create a log with the person who adopted


a certain stone & they would receive a certificate of thanks.  Tim suggested Jeff Murray with the Elmira Star Gazette


might do a story on this project which would give the society some publicity.   


7) Gloria would like the Town of Veteran & Village of Millport upcoming anniversaries project to be chaired by Tim. 

Anyone interested in assisting please let Tim know.  This is something which has a deadline as both the


town & village celebrate their anniversaries in 2023.   


8) Marlene donated 2 plant hangers for the Geraniums out front.
