IX. Director’s Report
Lori shared the dates for upcoming fundraisers:
March 24 for March for Meals; May 19 for Chili Cook off; July 14 for Mexican
dinner; date for October TBA. The
fundraiser originally planned for February is cancelled. Staff vacations and two major fundraisers
back-to-back make it difficult to do more.
Staff has completed most of the plans for the
Emergency Kits. The kits will be
composed of basic food for 3 days in a drawstring plastic bag. Westamerica bank donated $1,000 to the Center
and that money will be used to supply the food.
Hardester’s Market has committed to match or better the cost of items
for the bag. Both businesses’ names will
be on the kit bag as contributors. Board
members will be available to help stuff the kits. Initially, there will be 50 kits.
The Thrift store is on target with their goal of
making $1,000 per month; for the last 6 months, the total income was $5,980.
Lori is going on vacation! Let’s hope this one is not cancelled due to
a hurricane like the last one. Board members will cover the office with
Tessie as follows:
March 12: Kathy; 13: Jacque; 14:
Kimberly; 15 and 16: Barbara; 19: Jim; 20: Bob; 21: Jacque
Darla has recinded the application for the
board. She has accepted another
volunteer position and won’t have the time.
Phyllis will be moving on January 28 to Florida
and will email her resignation from the board to Jacque. The board will not
choose new officers at this point. Helen
is vice-chair and will conduct meetings until May when 2 more board terms
expire and new board members and officers will be selected. Board members and Center staff will seek
applications for the upcoming board openings.
Following review of board applicants and
discussion, Barbara Castaldo was selected to fill the open position.
