Barbie Wiersema reported sending a card to to members who have suffered deaths in their family. And a member who had some heart tests done in Little Rock.


Old Business:

Century 21 Spring Display:  Ron reported that 1st Security will provide the hot dogs and water.  Depending on the weather report, they will order 400 or 600.

Ron will be on Mountain Talk radio on May 9 and Beverly has listed the event on KTLO’s Community Calendar as well as in Old Cars, Auto Round-Up and Arkansas Living magazines.  There will be 4 award plaques as well as l00 dash plaques.  Neal has already contacted Shady about the cones, etc.  He will pick up Shady’s truck the night before.  Set-Up will begin at 7:30 with several already promising to be there.  We will try to recruit other members to help take-down.  Mike will coordinate parking, but we can always use more throughout the day.  Big John will provide music and Steve Nelson will bring the equipment.  Ron and Beverly will bring six club tables and everyone is asked to bring canopies if they have them.  Mary Anne has the gate under control with many ladies to help.

Barbie will coordinate cookies.  Each family is asked to bring 2 dozen (no more) in a disposable container and labeled as to nuts or peanut butter.  We will also have 50/50.  As you can see, there are plenty of opportunities to volunteer, so just ask someone if you can give them a break or help in any way.


New Business:

The Sr. Center will begin charging $25.00/hour for groups using their facilities for meetings.  This will begin next month.  There was much discussion as to alternative sites.  Restaurants, of course, would want us to eat there, other places are hard to find, should we take the money out of the Food Bank collection, should we charge $1.00 for each person attending – what to do.  Mike Beaten moved that the Club pay for next month’s charge at which time we will decide on further action.  It was seconded and passed.  Ron charged everyone with coming up with ideas and checking them out ahead of time. 

The Sr. Center is having a fund raiser on Saturday, June 23, and has asked us to display our cars.  This will be revisited next month.            


Jim will lead the April cruise to Whispering Woods Restaurant on Friday, April 27.  We will leave the library parking lot at 1:15 for a 2:00 reservation.  Please RSVP to Jim by April 25.  

Meeting adjourned at 7:00 PM.
