Old Business:
None

 

New Business:
1)  Steve spoke on what he has been doing with regard to the Building Committee.  He has
contacted a lawyer & needs to know what the societies needs are with regard to his services.
We would require the lawyer to know about real estate, what our tax exempt status can do for
with regard to purchasing a property & the legalities of using a Go Fund Me page.  Steve also
registered the society on line for Grants & is waiting to hear back on the status. 

 

2) The Building Committee will meet on Monday May 14, 2018 @ 6 pm at the Town Hall.


3) Gloria reported she had been in contact with Andy at the Hornby Historical society with regards to
setting up a Facebook account to use for fundraising for the society. 


4) Tammy suggested we use Amazon.smile.com to use as a fundraiser.  She also suggested a
clothes bin / building where the public could drop off good used clothes for donation.  The company
pays the sponsor by the pound.  We will need to check on specifics & would need a space to place
the bin / building. Gloria said she would follow up on this. 


5) The May cemetery cleanup was cancelled as there isn't enough growth to warrant it.  Cemetery
clean-ups are: June 30th at Parsons on the Middle Road, September 15th at Turner / Crandell on the
Ridge Road, & October 13th at Parsons.  Gloria will check with Gordon Samson to see if he needs any
help at the Ridge Cemetery. 


6) Anita spoke on the Craft / Vendor Fair.  We discussed what foods we will have for sale & the price
for each.  Anita & Gloria will get the items at Sam's as they have most of them on sale.  Sams may also
donate some of the supplies we need to us.  We talked about using the upstairs at the Grange if need be. 
We have 18 vendors interested in participating.  The Grange has 12 tables & Anita said her husband could
get additional tables from the Fire Dept. for us to use.  We talked about those vendors who needed power
for their table.  They have to supply their own heavy duty extension cords.  Gloria mentioned possibly
getting some orange cones to slow the traffic on that day. Vendors can set up starting at 9:00 am on the
19th.  Baked goods can be dropped at the Grange beginning at 9:00 am that same day.  We will meet at
the Grange on Friday May 18th at 3 pm to set up the Societies tables, etc.
