Our meeting was our annual Pizza dinner with pizzas supplied by Jim’s Place in Vernon. As always the 22 members in attendance all enjoyed a variety of pizzas.
Marilyn our Treasurer gave her financial report: We have $2,700.00 in our account and a GIC to come due in July. We will be donating to a research project at our local University.
Marie gave a report about the newsletter she is trying to update members about safe restaurants in the area.
Our membership is down as is happening in many chapters.
The chapter is also having an issue with members not being able to get to meetings. We are all busy with life.
Most of our executive has been on the board for many years and are putting out the word that we need members to come forward and fill the executive position at the Sept meeting. These are the positions that will need to be filled.
President, Secretary, Treasurer, It would be nice to have all the positions filled but you can still have a chapter with only these positions. You would also need to have two (2) meetings a year.
Our September meeting will be a very important meeting so I would encourage members to step up and take on these positions.
Thank you Rachel for taking the minutes for us.
I also want to thank the executive for their many years of hard work and dictation to the Kelowna Chapter.
