Christmas Shelter Donation (Mashed potatoes and gravy)
Jay made a motion for the club to buy the supplies to make mashed potatoes for the Sister’s dinner. Troy seconded, and offered the use of his Restaurant Depot card to buy the supplies – motion passed unanimously
Robert’s Rules of Order and Next Year’s Goals
Work on updating the bylaws to streamline some things and take more advantage of current technology.. i.e. Online voting, as the bylaws currently stipulate in-person voting. Josh has offered to help with issues related to following Robert’s Rules.
Dale suggested possibly a Valentines theme meet & greet event. Possibly allow guests to bring a non-member to the event.
