Treasurer's report: A statement was received for $180.00 for the first installment of Grant #08-4 for the Granville Teen Center (Spring into Art.) Notice will be sent for disbursement of funds.

Steve had a discussion with Carol Phillips-Whitt about her last grant proposal that we are looking for benchmarks and goals, and what is to be accomplished with the funds, to aid in decision-making. It was suggested that a statement to that effect be added to the grant application. Meg, Lois and Mark will work on a set of written criteria.
Steve will include Chuck Peterson on the e-mail distribution list so that our meeting times are listed in the Sentinel.
Grant request #09-4 from the Denison University Concert Choir was considered, to assist in funding the concert choir to hire instrumental musicians. Help is needed due to budget cuts. Mickey moved and Kyle seconded to approve $500.00 to be spent on professional fees for the hiring of musicians. The motion carried with 6 for the motion, after Steve and Tom recused themselves because of their affiliation with the event.
Next Meeting: Tentatively scheduled for 7 PM on Thursday, April 16th, upstairs at the Village Hall.
Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 8:15 PM.
