- Community Fair – B. Ilko reported we do not have a Chair for the CF at this time, and with the pending sale of AIU, we may not be able to utilize it for more than one year, and other venues have question marks around them, but we are in need of a Chair to do the leg work on following up for the Fair. L. Peranich indicated his feeling that it is important to have the CF and it ties into the following item on the Agenda; D. Engler feels it is important too for a communication tool to the community and it brought in a lot of money and hates to see it go away from the budget; the Board indicated the importance of the CF and would like to see it continue; might prove fruitful to begin with B. Hoffman as well as looking for SR residents who may be interested in it or college students who are looking to get into event planning; perhaps we should just set a CF planning meeting and see what kind of volunteers will show up with their ideas
Motion by Wally to direct the Pres. to investigate the possibility of holding the CF in 2019 and if need be, hire someone to head up the effort and authorize the budget to allow the Pres to do so, L. Evenson 2nd; B. Ilko mentioned his inability; motion passes 14-0-1.
- Identification and Recruitment of a Volunteer Coordinator – we need someone who is better at outreach and not so much a coordinator; advertising is everything and interacting with the community; how can we leverage the NL in terms of identifying people who can and want to do this? T. Philips to begin a brainstorming email chain to identify other organizations (i.e. HOAs) where we can advertise for volunteers; Kiwanis and other orgs which help with Clean Up Day are perhaps orgs we can tap for ideas/volunteers; banner that we can move around asking for volunteers (budgetary component); can we send targeted emails to Districts? Yes; Wally – email box asking for volunteers (in windows? Next door?); will the Swim and Racquet Club post something for us? Each DR can join Next Door to get the idea out that we need volunteers
