Minutes – Minutes of 2018-10-05 were approved.
Treasurer’s Report (Dave Eggler) – Report noted.
Old Business - Nancy Perkins demonstrated blue stained planks for the Freight Station. They will need electrical panels in the floor. There will be a display case on casters’
Summer Sounds (JoAnn Knupp) – sent off a cashier's check in the amount of $500 to the agency that Beatlemania is coming through. I sent out letters to the seven banks in our area for donations. Since it is the end of the year, I feel I won't hear from them right away. I also sent letters to the service clubs who have a small game of chance and asked for a donation. They are required to donate 10% of their profits to charity. In the next week, I will send letters to groups like the Rotary, Kiwanis etc and ask for donations. I know we have a few hundred dollars from individuals and our $400 that we generally pay for someone will pretty much pay for the sound guy. Any ideas of a source of money would be appreciated.
