Financial Report: Reed reviewed the Financial Report for August, 2015. Reed moved to accept the Financial Report, Stewart seconded. The motion carried.
Executive Director’s Report: Bruce reviewed his report for the month. Bruce made a comment in reference to his conversation with Chuck Peterson about the 10 year report, that when Chuck asked who our biggest groups, he replied that we have a lot of very diverse groups not an overabundance of large ones. Speaking of large groups though, the Art Affair & Wine Fest will not be happening next June due to organizational and financial situations. We want to thank the Dyke family for the donation of 12 chairs and a dining room table that has moved into the board room, they have found a home here for years to come.
Old Business: Maintenance Projects Update. We have some pricing on refurbishing the upper patio area at the Field House. The upper field house terrace will be aggregate like other areas on property. For the pool area we would like to maintain the change in materials (wood/stone) for aesthetics. Electric is being worked on in the laundry house. Bruce will talk to the windows people (Rosati) that did the Carriage House and GSVA buildings. Candi wants to seal up the Laundry building structurally so that it is fit for future use or renovation. Bruce stated that the Board may need to have a brain storming session for 2nd floor uses answering some questions like: “What is the best use of current space, do we just open it up? Does exiting piping dictate where restrooms facilities are? Do bearing walls dictate rooms that can be created, how does the 2nd floor entrance way affect the entrance to first floor events, what other things will effect flow in the space and other functions on the first floor, how is access via stairs or elevator?” Candi wants to pull the Claggett plans for 2nd floor that are on file for the October meeting to do this next session. On different note, Bruce has a second price quote for the outside stairway of the Carriage House, however the Board is putting that project on hold for now as other projects take precedence. Candi stated that she would like to see some more work go toward the community garden area in preparation of the Granville Garden Club daffodil specimen area starting this fall.
New Business: The schedule for the rest of the year will be as follows: October will be a normal meeting date (28th), then December 2nd will be the end of year combined Nov/Dec meeting. The first meeting for 2016 will be January 27. So come prepared to do some brainstorming in October!
Other: The Board’s feeling that the meeting with Chuck Peterson went well the last time we met and they look forward to his articles coming out soon. Also to wrap up the 10 year project, we need to add some pictures and appendix. Would like to have it available for annual report distribution as well as for other recipients as they present themselves.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:09 p.m.
The next regular meeting is scheduled for October 28th, 2015
