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.

X.        Unfinished Business:  None

XI.    New Business:

·      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.

XII.     Adjourn.  Meeting adjourned at 2:15 p.m. (Bob/Pat)
