Burgh Bears Membership Meeting

January 9, 2018



New Board Makeup

Christmas Party – largest turnout in some time. As the group continues to grow we may have to check into having the party elsewhere. We may also have to look into capping or discontinuing the gift exchange in the interest of time.

Christmas Eve – Volunteers contributed to the dinner hosted by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence

Pride  – Mike moved to register for Pride asap Marcus seconded, approved.  This will allow us to participate in Delta’s workshop, which will get us a cloth tablecloth with our logo printed on it.   Maurice & Mike will head up the pride committee, and hope to launch it later this month, with the committee in place by the end of February; potentially meeting March, April & May. The committee will work on planning out the two days, come up with ideas for giveaways for the table.

T-shirts – in place of having a contest, having an official 25th anniversary design created.  More detail to come in Feb.

Bylaw Committee – Chip will send out an email by the end of the month for volunteers for the committee.
