Shawn Romine spoke to the board regarding PC Repair & IT Services. Shawn presented a “Managed Services Proposal.“  Proposal is attached.


Peggy Mark correction – Linda Cornett was not at meeting in February, therefore she could not have made a report on the Community Baby Shower.  Bill Crenshaw made a motion to accept the minutes with correction.  Lisa Schrader seconded the motion.  Motion carried.

Other guests:  Ursula Angel, Events Coordinator/Planner, June Erwin newsletter editor and Linda Cornett past president.

Ursula took a moment to thank everyone for their help.  She has been checking things out – flooring bids – St. Patrick’s Day entertainment – Parks and Recreation Brochure.  Please let her know if there is something she can help with.  One idea that has been proposed is taking pictures of the members and putting the picture next to the membership information in computer to help in case of an accident or emergency.


Decision on design was postponed until April meeting, with voting to close on April 1st.


Per Peggy Mark, they have not been able to check for pictures for the brochure.  Hopefully, by next meeting they will have something available for perusal.
