Treasurer’s report: We have had heavy spending this month with furnace repairs and carpeting. Our year to date spending exceeds income by approximately $12,000. The overall account balance is $94,260. The IRS form 990 is in the review process and the State non-profit report is due later this year.
Branch Manager’s report: See separate attachment.
Bookstore report: Our next special book sale will be with the plant sale, April 18.
Newsletter: Next issue will be out prior to the Salmon Bake.
Facilities Manager report: John reported installation of the CO detectors (2) and the Knox Box (Fire Dept key access). The flagpole will be repainted in the near future. We suffered several breakdowns of the furnace in March and after discussion on the topic, we agreed to replace the furnace and do the required ducting for the new office; the cost will be slightly less than $4,000. Carol will coordinate the furnace replacement.
Gardens: The next work party will be 4/10 and a sign-up list was routed around the table.
Building Committee: Progress has been slow on the expansion due to Dale’s workload. Eric will request that the wall be moved outward prior to the Salmon Bake on 6/21.
Port Advisory Committee: Steve reported that permitting for the welcome sign is ready. It was agreed to send a check for $2100 to Dalton Signs, on behalf of the Port, to begin construction of the sign. We also authorized Ray Pardo to spend up to $500 to create banners for Salmon Bake, Plant Sale, and Book Sale.
Plant sale (4/18): Ron passed around a sign-up list. Set-up will begin at 7:00AM with the sale running 9-3. On 4/4 there will be a “basket party” at the Radas’. Replacement of several of the 8’ tables was discussed and we decided to have the Weixlers procure six more tables for less than $1000.
