Other Matters:

Discussed purchasing a plant from Gray’s prior to social events at new businesses, the board approved spending $35 for each plant and Brenda offered to take this on, but asked that enough notice of an event be given to ensure being able to order it.

The board discussed areas that we could use the $5,000 donation from Captain Carl, after discussing several options, Johnny made a motion to add this money to Rick Leonhardt’s Presidential project of updating the 4H Pig Barn and Beef Barns.  Brenda seconded this motion and the board approved.  Rick is in the process of obtaining a grant and monies from the other clubs in the Plumas Sierra communities to add to this very large and well needed project.  This is a great joint venture with the other clubs since all clubs have children that participate in 4H; we will be working with the fairgrounds, a local contractor and electrician to complete this project.  There will be some sort of plaque/bench etc. identifying all those who donated to complete this project.

Pete thanked Wes and Brenda for their donations to the Area 2 Raffle Basket for District on May 18th.

Richard reminded that he still needs information on what Rotary does for our trifold brochures, Brenda turned in hers for Youth, we still need the information for Membership, Community Service, Foundation and Club Service.

Lastly, we discussed the planting of 48 local trees, as requested by Rotary International, Richard has the cost from Gray’s Flower Garden and will be looking for ideas on where/when to plant trees.
