John Stewart said the boat show-shoot out, said he assumes the awana leaders will help out with parking. Pam Hutcheson said it starts at 12pm. Annette Knapp asked if Trek and Journey could help direct traffic, and wear the orange vests.
Lyle Jones asked Jeff Chorpening about insurance for a bus and a van, and Jeff Chorpening said that $1100 for a bus, $1800 for a van. Pastor Marc asked Scott Fahrer to get two or three options on bus/van for the church to vote on.


Carol Firestone wanted to talk about Papa Johns selling pizza in the packing lot of the church. Didn't think it 
was a good idea to sell it and eat in the parking lot. Bradley Davis said he didn't hear back from them, Scott Fahrer said he talk to the owner and the two owners split and don't have the trailer any more. Bradley Davis said then it wouldn't work for Papa Johns to come to the church. Carol Firestone wants to vote no on Papa John's, and just sell out of the shack. Pastor Marc said we will sell pizza in the shack. Pam Hutcheson, Lyle & Cheryl Jones will get the pizza stuff together. 
George Fields brought forth a photo album of the church.  It was given to George Fields from a former pastor & wife, Don & Donna Turner. It was a long time back, and talked about the history of the church.
Carol Firestone said the kitchen needs a plumber, the sink has a leak and the faucet leaks too. Pastor Marc said with Lyle Jones being the trustee he will check it out.
Michele Chorpening has been checking on different fund raisers for the church. One of the fund raisers is the Co-mo cares up to a $1000 and wanted the permission to proceed on investigating on the grant money. Motion was made by Dyan Dunsworth, and seconded Hazel Stewart. Voted and accepted. Michele Chorpening said we have to be specific on what we want the money for, for instance a van. Motion was made by Karen Moore to pursue, seconded by Lyle Jones. Voted and accepted. Second fund raiser is doing Spinners, or Cards 330 of them makes $2700. Floy Beard is against the idea. Karen Moore said it takes money and if we don't make the money we lose it. Bradley Davis asked if we have to solicit it, Michele Chorpening said no, they do. We would pay $7.50 and sell them for $15. George Fields said he would not be for them either.
Lyle Jones asked if Scott and Christy Fahrer are still taking the RV to Louisiana for the mission trip, and Scott Fahrer said yes. 
Karen Moore made the motion to adjourn, and seconded by Bradley Davis.
