Minutes of CGNE Meeting
The meeting opened with the treasurer’s report, which reflects a bank balance of $1082.53. There was some discussion about how keeping track of donation amounts, sources and dates might help officers to determine the most efficacious fund raisers etc. Colleen reported that Elizabeth is going to work on a data base to track these factors.
A report on the Little Free Libraries revealed that there is a shortage of children’s books so all are expected to look for resources.
Gardening Club report was that a meeting is scheduled November 20th and there is some thought about a Garden Tour perhaps in February.
The Neighborhood Cleanup went well with one right of way cleared entirely and another partially. There was discussion of doing another cleanup, but having a lottery for where to clear based on property owner participation, or donation.
Brush and bulky is scheduled 1/8/18 and 7/2/18.
Wilson Wash is being regularly picked up and Steve reported that he is going to find time to pursue the Dept of Transportation about a footbridge.
