Approval of Minutes: Minutes of February 20, 2014 were read and amended. Kyle moved and Meg seconded to approve the minutes as amended. The motion carried.
Treasurer's Report: Marilyn distributed the budget report. Requests for payment have been sent for $250.00 to the Granville Senior Center, and $500.00 to Suzuki. Maggie moved and Jurgen seconded to accept the treasurer’s report. The motion carried.
Regarding Grant #14.04, Part B (70-year garden club history collage) for $300.00 is still in question as to whether this was to be one or more collages, and how it would be displayed and used. Maggie recommended that Part B remain tabled, and the Garden Club can reapply with more details.
Meg has updated the grant application, which she e-mailed to the Village for the website.
Neal commented on the good press the GAC received on the Bryn Du website for GAC sponsorship. He went on to ask how Granville can get greater recognition for all the cultural events that are available. He noted that in the Sentinel, GAC did not get credit for providing funds for the artist awards for the show at Bryn Du. The GAC could be instrumental in raising awareness and establishing Granville as an arts destination.
Lois will contact Trish Newcomb about the need for a Chamber representative on the GAC.
Jurgen reported that he contacted the superintendent of Granville Schools to encourage applications for funds.
Grant #14.06: Kendall at Granville requests $500.00 for the Kendall Art History Program, to help cover fees for the Cleveland Museum of Art for their services including docents and session set-ups. Meg moved and Jurgen seconded to approve grant request #14.06. The motion carried unanimously.
Grant #14.07: St. Luke’s Church requests $500.00 to cover overhead costs for the Tom Carroll band to perform as part of their ongoing music series, allowing it to be free for the community. Kyle moved and Neal seconded to approve grant #14.07. Tom recused himself from voting, and the motion carried.
