October 2016 Board Meeting Minutes

Call to Order: 4pm

Attending Board Members: President Kevin Abel, Vice President Ty Witt, and Past President Jordana Laporte, Secretary Tiffany Gering.  Directors: Rick Nedrow, Sandy Calicoat, and Kirk McGovern. Club members: Lyle Mettler, Tim Hollingsworth, Jan Fedor, and Terry Johnson (filling in for Treasurer Terry White).

Absent:  President-Elect Lester Cooper, Director Phil Moller, and Treasurer Terry White.

Approval of Minutes: Director Rick Nedrow made the motion to approve the September 8, 2016 Board Minutes with a second to the motion provided by Vice President Ty Witt. Motion passed unanimously.

Attendance Report: Director Rick Nedrow reported that there are 13 members yet to pay with only 6 people choosing not to do the $75 contribution. Discussion was had regarding members that do not attend because we still have to pay Rotary International for members who are not active. Director Rick Nedrow will be on vacation and Lyle Mettler will be handling attendance in his absence.

Financial Report: Terry Johnson (standing in for Treasurer Terry White) reported that the checkbook has not been balanced because we are still waiting on bank statements. The BBQ column under fundraising activities needs to be changed to Vineyard Run. Director Rick Nedrow made the motion to approve the financial report. Director Sandy Calicoat seconded the motion. Past President Jordana Laporte abstained. Motion approved.

Old Business

  1. Fundraiser Update: Jan Fedor
    1. 5K Vineyard Run: Bob Jenkleson at Tsillan Cellars is very excited about doing the vineyard run. Jan still needs to connect with Denny Evans as we would also need part of his property for the run. We would want to have the run during a time that would not interfere with Tsillan Cellars operations so Jan was thinking in July or August. Jan also contacted Airfield Estates in Prosser (where he came up with this idea). It is a 900-acre vineyard, they have a flyover, people bring their dogs, and it’s a tough run. Maybe Chris Millsap could do a flyover for our run? Jan thought expenses would include the cost for shirts ($5 per shirt) and Sani-cans. The Chelan Chase charges $30, is a certified race, has giveaways, and tons of food at the end. Tim Hollingsworth will provide an aerial photo for Jan to help with the course layout. Other discussion was had about adding a 2 1/2k run for kids, enough parking for 300 cars, making the event certified and timed, goody bags, and how much to charge. In order to hit the fundraising goal, the price per runner would need to be $25 with 200 runners as well as offering Rotarian housing. A committee will be put together soon. Director Rick Nedrow made a motion for Jan to continue planning the 5K Vineyard Run. Vice President Ty Witt seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously.
    2. Housing for donation during Century Challenge
  2. 100-Year Anniversary Project: Tim Hollingsworth
    1. Tim proposed the South Chelan Neighborhood Park by the Chelan Reach Trail. It’s a few acre piece of property controlled by the Chelan County PUD. They won’t allow any permanent buildings but that area is set aside under their recreation plan to be available to the City to develop as a park, the PUD won’t have any financial interest in developing the park. It was discussed to make it an incremental process of developing the park (entrance, picnic tables, shelter, basketball courts, tennis courts, playground area with logs and basalt rock, grassy area). It would take some coordination with the City because the Parks Department would have to maintain it and incur the expense. There was already one meeting and attended by neighborhood people who shared their concerns. It wouldn’t be a bad idea to apply for a district grant. It was suggested that the Community Services Team maintain it as part of our service projects if maintenance becomes a hurdle. Tim will make the initial contact with the City.
    2. Discussion on budget line item –Director Kirk McGovern made the motion to create a $10,0000 budget line item for the 100-year project. The motion seconded by Past-President Jordana Laporte. Motion passed unanimously.
  3. Senior Living Initiative (SLI): Lyle Mettler
    1. The SLI community meeting was very well attended. The goal of the SLI is to determine how people can live in their homes longer and better and also build a facility in town for elderly people who need a place to live. An ask will come but not at this point and Lyle requested that we carefully consider this.

New Business

  1. Community Projects – Ty Witt
    1. The first project started, site prep was done and the project is rolling along. Chelan Concrete donated gravel. 50 Rotarians are signed up on teams. The next step is to create an inventory list of tools needed. There are people willing to donate tools who don’t have time or aren’t able to volunteer. There will be all different types of projects, sometimes helping elderly and other times trail cleanup. We are currently on budget for this project. Ty would like to see a line item in next year’s budget.
  2. Grant requests –
    1. Morgan Owens PTA Project Playground requested $1,500. Vice President Ty Witt made a motion to pledge $500 and have the PTA account for where and when the money is spent. Director Rick Nedrow seconded the motion. All were in favor.
    2. Chelan FFA Horse Career – $1,000 (approved via e-mail vote).
  3. Sponsorship Proposal
    1. Rotary Ice Block Winterfest – $400: This money would come out of our marketing funds and is already a line item. Tiffany Abstains from vote. All were in favor.
  4. Membership Proposals –
    1. Adam Rynd: He is still very interested but wants us to wait a month or two to submit the application.
    2. Cody Gunn: Vice President Ty Witt made the motion to approve membership, Director Kirk McGovern seconded the motion. Motion passes unanimously.
    3. Membership Committee: Discussion was had on how to improve the process for new members. Some ideas were to encourage the club to focus on new members because they are often disoriented. Use new members as greeters. Do a mentorship program; a new member picks an existing Rotarian after a month to be their mentor. Different color badges for the newbies? Then there is a list of things they have to do before getting a blue badge (ie attend a board meeting, be a greeter, do a service project, etc). Director Kirk McGovern will provide a list that his club utilized. President Kevin Abel will meet with the membership chair to see how progress can be made.

Director/Officer Assignments

  1. Vocational Service – Kirk M.
  2. International Service – Lester C. – Tim and Jordana will meet to discuss Sylvia. Jordana would like to see Rotary make The Lion King one of our social outings.

September 2016 Board Meeting Minutes

Call to Order: 3:58pm

Attending Board Members: President Kevin Abel, Vice President Ty Witt, President-Elect Lester Cooper and Secretary Tiffany Gering.  Directors: Rick Nedrow, Phil Moller, and Kirk McGovern.

Absent:  Director Lexy Lieurance, Director Phil Moller, Past President Jordana Laporte, Treasurer Terry White, Directors: Sandy Calicoat

Approval of Minutes: Director Rick Nedrow made the motion to approve the August 11, 2016 Board Minutes with a second to the motion provided by President-Elect Lester Cooper. Motion passed unanimously.

Attendance Report & Membership Reports: Director Rick Nedrow asked when we remove people who consistently do not show up to meetings. After some discussion, it was decided that the Membership Committee should first speak to their sponsor and then report back to the board. It was also decided that the membership committee should provide suggestions to the board regarding absentee member procedures. Director Rick Nedrow will wait until Mary is back and go from there.

Also of note, Ty Waude has resigned and needs to be dropped. President Kevin Abel will remind Rotarians that when they introduce a potential new member not to say, “We are hoping they will be a new member.” This could create an uncomfortable situation for everyone involved if the board did not approve membership. He will make this announcement when we don’t have any “new” guests.

Director Rick Nedrow is now sending the attendance report to the entire membership committee. Director Phil Moller mentioned that there is a meeting happening next week for the potential new members, which is of concern because there has not been a board vote to approve the members nor have the members been posted for a week. Here is the correct process for new members which should not be deviated from: member application submitted to board, the board votes, if approved, the member is posted in the newsletter for one week, and then the membership committee speaks to them about Rotary responsibilities.

Financial Report: President Elect Lester Cooper reported that Vin du Lac sent $1,000 for the bike ride sponsorship making our total ride sponsor dollars $11,500.

Old Business:

  1. Youth Exchange-Student from Taiwan: No report.

New Business

  1. Welcome Kirk as new member
  2. Fundraising replacement for BBQ
    1. Housing for donation during bike ride
    2. Trail Run/Ride (kayak, bike, relay)
    3. Poker Run
    4. Paddle Board Race
    5. BBQ Chicken
    6. Lady of the Lake Cruise (Winterfest)
    7. Mountain Bike – Echo
    8. Butte Run/Hike/Race
    9. 5k Run through vineyard
    10. Drive through Christmas lighting at Don Morse
    11. Pickle ball tournaments, tournament host makes about $6,000

Discussion: We need a fundraiser that will raise $10,000 to replace the BBQ. After considering all options the board narrowed it down to two ideas, Rotary home hosting and the 5K run through the vineyard. The Rotary home hosting donation during the bike ride could cover that amount. President Elect Lester Cooper reported that the bike ride committee is going to speak to the school district to procure the use of football field for ride participant camping. A security guard would be hired and participants could camp for a fee. President Kevin Abel will contact Jan Fedor to determine if he is interested in researching the 5K run through the vineyard.

100-year ideas

  1. Park
    1. Climbing wall Don Morse
    2. New skate park or enhanced like Leavenworth
    3. Park near Gorge Trail (Reach 1)
    4. Splash pad or fountain
    5. Park in other area of community
    6. New park with access to lake
    7. Mini parks or access to lake
    8. Musical park
  2. Community Pool
  3. Community Center
  4. Affordable Housing
  5. Water Quality
  6. Multi-use Event Center

Discussion: The board agreed that the community pool was not a good idea as it has been attempted at least three times and failed.  Regarding a multi-use event center, the level of governmental involvement is concerning. All other ideas seemed viable to the board with the big issue being land. President Kevin Abel decided that the next two satellite meetings will focus on the 100 year ideas. This small group will discuss and a survey will be created to go to membership. Once this group has met and survey results are in, a formal proposal will be submitted to the board. Some unanswered questions presented were: who could lead and how much can we start saving per year. More board discussion to come after hearing back from the satellite meeting consensus.

  1. Grant Requests – None.
  2. Membership Proposals –
  3. James Heg
  4. Dial Jones
  5. Karen Takagi
  6. Jillian Foster

Director Rick Nedrow made the motion to approve all 4 new member applications. President Elect Lester Cooper seconded the motion. Motion approved.

Director/Officer Assignments

  1. Vocational Service – Director Kirk McGovern asked President Kevin Abel what our expectations are for this committee. President Kevin Abel will get back to him.
  2. International Service – President Elect Lester Cooper, no report.
  3. Club Service – Director Rick Nedrow, no report.
  4. Community Service – Director Sandy Calicoat, no report.

Other Business – Good of the Order

Vice President Ty Witt wants to be on the next board agenda meeting for the Community Service group. He reported that there will be four community service teams, each with a team captain and every Rotarian on a team. Each team will be signed up for one Saturday per month for 3-4 hours. Project details will be given and determine which volunteers on your team can commit. Vice President Ty Witt requested $500 for ramp materials for an upcoming project. We already have a $225 credit at Lake Chelan Building Supply. Director Rick Nedrow made the motion to spend $500 on the ramp materials. Director Kirk McGovern seconded the motion. Motion approved. Ty Witt is donating the use of his trailer for the community service projects. The trailer cost $1,200 to wrap. Secretary Tiffany Gering makes the motion to spend the $1,200 on the wrap, Director Phil Moller seconded the motion. Motion passes unanimously.

August 2016 Board Meeting Minutes

Call to Order: 4pm

Attending Board Members: President Kevin Abel, President-Elect Lester Cooper, Past President Jordana Laporte, Vice President Ty Witt, and Secretary Tiffany Gering.  Directors: Sandy Calicoat and Rick Nedrow.

Absent:  Director Lexy Lieurance, Director Phil Moller, and Treasurer Terry White.

Attending Club Members: Brent Morrison.

Approval of Minutes: Director Sandy Calicoat made the motion to approve the July 14, 2016 Board Minutes with a second to the motion provided by Rick Nedrow. Motion passed unanimously.

Attendance Report: Director Rick Nedrow reported that there is no attendance pattern. The question was asked, when do we decide people are no longer members? Director Rick Nedrow will put together a bullet point list to help guide the Membership Committee regarding member retainsion. He will bring it back to the board for review.  Ty Witt mentioned that he will call Ty Waude to check in with him.

Financial Report – Happy bucks were won the last day of the year so that is why that number is $0. Chelan High School still owes us money but we assume it will be paid when school starts. The final net on the bike ride is $53,000 with only $175 of expenses thus far. We started the year with $30,000 in cash and currently have $11,579.75 of outstanding membership dues. Director Rick Nedrow made the motion to accept the financial report. Director Sandy Calicoat seconded the motion. Motion approved with Past President Jordana LaPorte abstaining from the vote.

Old Business

  1. Youth Exchange – Student from Taiwan: Jordana is picking her up August 21st.
  2. Lexy Replacement – Kirk McGovern: Lexy is going to submit her resignation. Kirk McGovern and Connie Lorenz were both suggested.

New Business

  1. Budget 2016-2017: The BBQ is still a concern since we may not do this fundraiser. It was suggested that we raffle off a cruise and that it presents the opportunity of a $17,000 potential profit. Apparently the cruise line would sell it to us at cost. The idea of an ice rink at Winterfest was also discussed. We will come up with another fundraiser if the BBQ doesn’t pan out. More discussion and brainstorming to come and the satellite meeting may be a good place to do that. Past President Jordana Laporte made the motion to accept the revised budget. Vice President Ty Witt seconded the motion. Motion approved unanimously.
  1. Grant Requests:
    1. Red Cross Blood Drive: Director Rick Nedrow made the motion to approve the Red Cross Blood Drive on the condition that the Lake Chelan Rotary banner will be hung at all the blood drives. Vice President Ty Witt seconded the motion. Motion passed. Tiffany will find out who the check needs to be made out to and let Jordana know. Lester will make a field on the online grant request for who the check needs to be written to.
    2. Automatic External Defibrillators: The grant request is asking for only a fraction of what they actually need. Concerns were discussed regarding the request coming from a public entity, and why they couldn’t make this a budget line item and accommodate for it. Some thought the Lake Chelan Community Hospital (LCCH) Foundation would be interested in helping. The request will be presented to the LCCH Foundation board by President-Elect Lester Cooper. If the LCCH Founation board says no, we can always reconsider. No vote, grant request deferred.
    3. Bench Project Boy Scout Troup 34: Past President Jordana Laporte made the motion to approve the grant request for $750 and President-Elect Lester Cooper seconded the motion. Motion passed with President Kevin Abel abstaining.
  1. Membership Proposals – None.
  1. 501c3 – There is an issue receiving automatic transfers from the NCW Community Foundation (NCWCF), which is earmarked for scholarships. In the past, the scholarship monies have been paid by the NCWCF directly to the scholarship recipient. It is causing confusion among the students because they are applying for Lake Chelan Rotary and NCWCF scholarships even though it is the same pot of funds. We would like them to transfer the scholarship monies to our account from the NCWCF annually. It would need to be transferred into the Lake Chelan Community and International Fund. They require a board vote on their end and on ours, as well as a letter that Lester will draft independently for the President’s signature. President-Elect Lester Cooper made the motion and Vice President Ty Witt seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously.
  1. Past President Jordana Laporte made the motion to have new signers on the signature cards. New signers would be Past President Jordana Laporte, President Kevin Abel, President-Elect Lester Cooper, and Treasurer Terry White. This needs to be done for both bank accounts at Washington Federal and Cashmere Valley Bank. Secretary Tiffany Gering seconded the motion. Motion carries.
  1. Director Rick Nedrow made the motion to open an Interact checking account at Cashmere Valley Bank. Vice President Ty Witt seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously.
  1. Discussion was had regarding how we fundraise, advertise, and handle accounts with the Interact Club. All events are considered “Rotary Sponsored Events.” There were concerns that fundraising sometimes happens on school time. President-Elect Lester Cooper reminded the board that we buy insurance for the kids. Even so, President-Elect Lester Cooper will speak to Barry Depaoli to find out any potential issues.

Director/Officer Assignments

  1. Vocation Service – Director Lexy Lieurance: No report.
  2. International Service – President-Elect Lester Cooper: No report.
  3. Club Service – Director Rick Nedrow: No report.
  4. Community Service – Director Sandy Calicoat: Vice President Ty Witt will be presenting a topic next month for a new community service project for our club to consider. The trailer is a big piece of this project. There is an immediate need for a community member who does not have funds and has a list of needs. More information to come in the presentation.

Other Business – Good of the Order: Brent Morrison has offered to take over bike ride duties with the condition that President-Elect Lester Cooper still handles marketing and registration. Brent will put together a ride committee. Here are some ideas he had for the ride: riders don’t know how we spend the money so we need to focus more on where the money goes (maybe video testimonials, exhibits at Don Morse Park, web and Facebook presence); Cycle Central suggested we refresh/change something every year; have some fanfare/enthusiasm at the start; close one lane of Loop 1 to Boyd Road between 7am and 7:15am; close off the bridge to do a mass start there, closing one lane through town; balloon archway for start and finish; complete a loop and be entered to win a prize; cost of housing is an issue…Rotary Rooms and donate to Rotary; flagger training instead of paying people; Fall Crush ride (triathlon) as a potential fundraiser. September 6th at the Club Assembly we will brainstorm these ideas.

Adjournment: 5:21pm.

Attending Club Members:   Sandy Calicoat.

Approval of Minutes:    President-Elect Kevin Abel made the motion to approve the May 11, 2016 Board minutes with a second to the motion provided by Director Aaron Evans. Motion passed unanimously.

Secretary Report: Secretary Paul Schmidt reported he is preparing all secretarial materials to be transferred to Director Tiffany Gering on July 1, 2016.

Attendance Report:  Rick Nedrow submitted a report for attendance that included a correction by Treasurer Terry White that indicated a rate of 60% for April member attendance.

Financial Report:

  • Director Tiffany Gering reported the new Rotary Club Visa bill for the hotel in South Korea could amount to $4,700. She noted the experience was certainly worth the cost, but sometimes credit cards don’t always work as planned!
  • Vice President Lester Cooper mentioned the slow pace of Century Challenge registration to date. It was noted we should be prepared for a less than “budgeted” expectation for revenue proceeds this year compared from this event last year.
  • President-Elect Kevin Abel has begun preparing his 2016-1017 Budget.
  • President Jordana LaPorte reported for 2015-2016 Budget Year:
    • $6200 was collected for Paul Harris Funds, which is an 83.78% rate.
    • $25,000 in scholarships were generated.
    • $6,400 in grants were awarded to the community.
  • President-Elect Kevin Abel made the motion to accept the Financial report. Second to the motion was made by Director Lexy Lieurance. Motion was approved. President Jordana LaPorte abstained from voting.

Old Business:

  1. 90th Anniversary –June 17 at Sorrento’s! President Jordana LaPorte reports entertainer Kayla Good can’t perform. Due to the late date, suggestion was to seek a disc jockey. Another thought was to ask Rotarian Guy Evans if he would be willing to play the piano. President Jordana LaPorte will be looking into all options. Current RSVP suggests approximately 45 Club members are planning on attending.
  2. 5 Year Strategic Plan – deferred.
  3. Manson Elementary School Options Program – Grant request is to fund a team of four environmental educators to develop and instruct during the Options Programs annual 3 day YMCA camp at Lake Wenatchee. However, it was noted the grant request is not complete without the required W-9 forms. Board discussion culminated in a deferral of the request until the required W-9 forms are submitted with the grant request.
  4. Mayor – Mike Cooney request for past Rotary projects – deferred.
  5. Youth Exchange – Director Lexi Lieurance reported possible exchange student from Taiwan (Silvia) will need to secure the 1st host family before the State Department will allow the visa for her exchange visit. So Director Lexi Lieurance is still asking for assistance in that regard.
  6. Cashiers – President Jordana LaPorte reported the cashier assistance afforded by her office is still in place (Natalie) and Jordana is paying for her time and lunch. The Board did recognize the good job Natalie is doing and the assistance is much appreciated.

New Business:

  1. Grant Request(s)
    1. Lake Chelan Arts – request is for $500 – there were a number of questions surrounding the request. The Board consensus was to table the request until more information could be provided.  
    2. Manson Boosters/PTA – Director Aaron Evans made the motion to approve $1,000 for the grant request. Second to the motion provided by proxy Director Rick Nedrow. Motion passed.
    3. Back to School Fair – Director Tiffany Gering made the motion to approve $1,000 for the grant request. Second to the motion provided by proxy Director Rick Nedrow. Motion passed.

  2. Weekly Meeting Set Up – Board discussion centered on having more advanced notice for video aid presentations as needed for programs. Problems occur when programs show up requesting video aids and the host then scrambles to accommodate. So the suggestion is to better coordinate with upcoming programs and their respective needs for video aids. Also, it was discussed as to where the video screen should be placed. The current location in front of the fireplace does not always lend itself as the best location. Issue there however is the lack of electrical outlets for projectors. More discussion is needed on the subject. No action taken.
  3. John Anderson Request – Club member John Anderson has submitted a request to keep his membership active while he is away on personal business in California. John has agreed to keep his membership dues current. Board discussion included the thought that John is already a “Rule of 85” member so attendance should not be an issue, and as long as his dues are current there shouldn’t be any problems with the Club. Director Tiffany Gering made the motion to grant approval to John Anderson’s request to maintain his active membership in the Lake Chelan Rotary Club as long as dues are maintained. Motion as seconded by proxy Rick Nedrow. Motion passed.

No problem here as we are a very gracious Club.
