Weathersfield Veterans Memorial Committee Minutes
September 5, 2017
Present: Chip Cobb, Ernie & Cookie Shand, Lisa & Jeff Slade, Edith Stillson and Patience Bearse
1. Approve minutes from previous meetings: Jeff Slade made the motion to approve the minutes dated July 18, 2017, Ernie Shand seconded the motion. Chip Cobb had one sentence he would like added to the panel discussion. Motion passed unanimously.
2. Chicken BBQ Saturday 9/30/17: Lisa said we could use some more help the day of the event. We'll arrive at the Hall about 7 am, the chicken will be picked up at 8 am, the chicken dinners will be ready at 11 am. Ernie Shand made the motion to spend no more than $625 on expenses for this event. Edith Stillson seconded the motion which passed without dissent.
Panel Discussion: Jeff Slade purchased frames for the four panels and the descriptions so eight panels all together and "assembled them". Up to $600 was allotted for this and the cost was only $163! Jeff will hang the two panels at Martin Memorial Hall (done on 9/10/17), Ernie will deliver the panel to the Library so they can display it where they wish and the one to the school so they can do the same. It was discussed that the next time we have a panel made we may want to make another Rosie panel so that can be displayed along with others.
3. Next meeting date: Next meeting will be on Tuesday October 10th at 6:15 p.m. at Martin Memorial Hall. Hopefully Chip will be able to call into the meeting as he'll be out of town. This meeting will be to plan the Veterans Day event. (The wreath stand is at Edith Stillson's at this time)
4. Jeff Slade made the motion to adjourn. Ernie Shand seconded the motion which passed without dissent.
Respectfully submitted, Lisa Slade
