We need three officers and two members to vote on any motions. Ken arrived late to the meeting and he had not attended the previous meeting, so we were unable to vote on the August minutes or the Treasurer’s reports from July and August. The votes will be held over until the next meeting.
Julie said that the Chenango County Arts Council funding for Carousel Day had requirements after the event:
1. Additional forms and paperwork to be completed. Julie completed that and sent it to them.
2. Audit another organization that received Arts Council funding. Barb agreed to attend an art exhibit at the Vestal Museum and complete the audit.
The Window on the Arts in Windsor is this weekend. Volunteers include Jim Lane, Corinna, Julie and Greg. Their organization provided volunteers for Carousel Day.
Julie reported that Thank you notes were sent to all sponsors and those who donated items for the baskets. Also a thank you was sent to Country Valley Industries for the snacks and the offer to park in their lot. Julie individually thanked all those present at the meeting for their assistance at Carousel Day.
Julie said she decided not to apply for the Arts Council grant for the 2014 Carousel Day. The deadlines are Dec. 20, 2013 and Jan 9, 2014. We only received $500 this year, so it could be less next year and the effort involved is not worth the amount we receive. She will secure the musicians for Carousel Day before December and then start contacting sponsors after the new year.
Julie informed the members that she needs more help with 2014 Carousel Day. We need to break down tasks, with various committees and chairs to share the responsibilities.
The last CruzeIn of this year will be Sept 19 schedule for volunteers. We are distributing a survey to those attending to get feedback on the events. Julie and Corinna will hand deliver the survey forms and ask people to return them to our table.
The next Johnson City Partners meeting is Oct 9, 2013 at 7PM at Village Hall.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:55 PM.
