Friends of the Garden Valley Library
Meet Thursday, June 6, at 10:00 a.m.
Everyone is invited.
Meeting Minutes May, 2013
The meeting was called to order at 10:20 a.m. Members present included Kathy Passie. Kathy Smith, Angel, Al Scharf, Rich Wilson, and Jody Mabe.
The minutes of the previous meeting were read and approved with corrections. The Treasurer’s report was tabled until receipts from Spring Fling could be tabulated. (Robbie later reported via email that we took in $106, although I assume that did not include the $25 table fee.)
Under Old Business, members discussed participation in Spring Fling. Most vendors reported a slow day with few people from outside the community buying items. We discussed other ways to market our goods, including asking the Chamber of Commerce or local merchants to display/market some of our wares, having our merchandise out during other Library programs, and making them more visible in the Library. Jody will look into a used display cabinet in Boise and Rich will check with Gerold and Greg to see if they have a spare one.
In other Old Business, Jody thanked members for putting on such a successful program with Ernie Lombard. We would like to schedule Carolyn Dufureena in either the summer or fall; Rich will check on her schedule. Jody will also check with Lauren Finns about doing a winter program. No recommendation was made as to scheduling Del Parkinson until we could ask him about a suitable piano.
Under New Business, Angel announced the Nosy Neighbor home tour for June 1 from 10:00 to 4:00 with tickets available at the Garden Valley Market and the Senior Center. This is a benefit for the Senior Center, and a number of homeowners have volunteered to open their homes for viewing.
There was no report from either Cass Meissner or the Landscape Committee, so the meeting adjourned at 11:25. The next meeting will be Thursday, June 6.
Jody Mabe, Acting Secretary
