Membership: Barb has been reviewing the attendance records for our meetings to determine who is eligible to be an officer and who can vote in the election at the Annual meeting on Feb. 15, 2017. A list of 2017 meeting dates was distributed.
Carousel Day: Ron Heebner contacted Corinna about the possibility of the JC Rotary taking responsibility for Carousel Day this year. Corinna, Barb and Marcia were going to meet with the JC Rotary on Jan 19th, but they cancelled. We will try to meet with them next Thursday morning to
explain what is involved in being Chair for Carousel Day. Julie said she has a possible person for Chair if the Rotary does not agree to do it.
Julie contacted the Trackless Train owner and tentatively booked him for July 22, 2017. We could use the ride as fundraiser for JCP, if there is a Carousel Day.
Gatherings at the Gazebo: The last program was Dec. 22, 2016 from 6-7PM in the Gazebo at Veterans Park.
Cruze-Inz: Corinna is sending letters to potential sponsors for Cruze-Inz. They will be held on the third Thursdays, May - September. We will ask the Grabowskis at Bulls Eye Signs about making new signs in exchange for sponsorship. If we decide to get a second large sign, we will have to find another
location for it, since we cannot use Airport Road.
Because we are returning to third Thursdays for Cruze-Inz, we thought we should have JCP meetings on the second Wednesday, so that we would not have two events in the same week. Corinna will check with Darlene at the Senior Center to see if the room is available for our meetings.
