Old Business:

None

 

New Business: 

1) Fund Raising Chair Anita Hesser reported on progress of the Craft / Vendor Fair. She has worked

hard & developed some excellent forms to be used. There were some good suggestions made at this

meeting with regard to this event. There are a number of crafters / vendors interested already. The

Food Permit application process was started after the meeting. We will continue to work on fine tuning

everything prior to the actual event as it has all the makings to be a successful fund raiser.

2) Building Commiittee Chair Steve Fieno reported he has spoken with Bruce Whitmarsh & got

some forms after the meeting in order to get registered on one of the NYS Grant Sites. He will also

contact Gloria to see if she has other forms he may need. There were several properties of interest

discussed in the town. Steve said he would visit one of them to see if it would meet the societies needs.

Rick suggested the society get some form of legal representation whether it be on a pro-bono or paid basis.

There were some lawyers names suggested for contact.

3) Tim reviewed an email sent to the society by Richard "Red" LaPierre who is on the town Planning Board.

The email was in reference to the building adjacent to the town hall to determine if the society was interested

in utilizing a portion of it. He is planning on making a motion at the March 15th town board meeting to begin

the process of applying for a grant to renovate the building. After much discussion the members in attendance

agreed that the society is no longer interested in pursuing use of that building. Tim will send a reply to Red

thanking him for thinking of the society.

4) Tim mentioned that Erin Doane from the Chemung County History Museum noted there were 21 people

who attended the official opening for the Town of Veteran Display. There were some questions from

attendees on town census & maps. As a result there are copies of the 1853, 1868 & 1904 maps for

people to take on the display case in the court room.

5) Shirley & Tim will continue to follow up on members whose 2018 dues have not been paid. Welcome

our two newest members - Tami & Sadie.
