Members Absent: Ron Abram, Tom Carroll, Mark Forman, Jugen Pape
Guests Present: None
Meeting Started: 7:10pm
Approval of Minutes: Minutes of February 21, 2013 were read. Marilyn moved and Maggie seconded to approve the minutes. The motion passed.
Treasurer's Report: Marilyn gave a budget update. An invoice for the Suzuki grant has been submitted.
The subcommittee to explore a “First Friday” art event (or something similar) did some preliminary research, and it was determined that the GAC cannot be the intiators or organizers of this type of event, realizing that to do it justice, there would need to be a paid position, and a year of planning. There was discussion of other kinds of things we might consider, and Marilyn reported that there is a 2-man play (The Duck Variations) that will be touring, and we might ask them to apply for a grant. Neal reported that there may be some evening entertainment to go along with the Porche event this Summer, and we could help to support that effort.
Finally the GAC website is live. Kyle will check with Thomas about the e-mail contact going to Marilyn, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Lois will send a list of 2012 grant applications to be included on the Grant History page. Kyle will check to be sure that this page can be accessed through the Village website.
Grant Request #13.05: The Grand Schemes Promotions applied for $500.00 to cover the cost of entertainment for the Art Affair. Marilyn moved and Kyle seconded to approve Grant #13.05. The motion passed with one abstention.
Announcements: Marilyn will appear in the Licking County Players play, “This One Thing I Do,” playing Susan B. Anthony, opening night is May 2nd.
Meetings: The next meeting is scheduled for April 25th at 7pm in the Village Office.
