Elliot arrived and was welcomed.
Motion to approve the agenda: MAC1, CR2, 5 aye, 1 incapable.
Motion to approve Secretary's report: MAC1, MJ2, 5 aye, 1 incapable
Starting to get monthly reconciliations which are starting to be correct even.
Need to get fine money applied to the Minuteman bill. Wendy is going to attempt to get this done at the Town Meeting next week. We forgot to get a warrant article added. Failing that there will be an opportunity at an all but certain June Special Town Meeting. Failing that we will have to pay it out of the Tuchinksy and try to get the fine money applied to it retroactively.
Cost roughly $2000 of which 1/2 is being covered by donations
Did quite well. $1234 of which $167 was from the raffle. Roughly 62 people attended (26 hungry souls turned up at the door)
Hope to do it again in the fall. Likely in October. Will need to pay for food (roughly $300). Do it in conjunction with an auction. Need better publicity. Chuck will send out letters. Would like official library letterhead (turns out all we have still has Susan Brennan's name).
Suggestion of getting high school drama club or possibly the players to provide some entertainment
DVD tree bearing fruit nicely
Leave as is do to privacy concerns. Trustee emails are not revealed.
No particular reason not to include donated videos which improve the collection. (Which are worthwhile and which we don't have).
Motion to adjourn (7:58), MAC1, MJ2, 5 aye, 0 nay, 1 incapable
