Rick Smith made the motion, seconded by Tom Fisher, that the July 2012 meeting minutes be accepted as printed. The motion carried.
Region Director Kyle Wiebold – Operation Shore Patrol Update – The camping is not free this year. Kyle needs the region to decide if we are going to participate this year. He did find a campground that will give us a discount. Driftwood RV has 35 spots and they are willing to give us all the spots for $350. This would cover the cost of the water and electricity. Marty made the motion to have Region 3 pay the $350 for camping. Carol Jensen 2nd the motion. The motion carried. Region 3 will provide $200 for food for the picnic. Please let Kyle know if you will be attending by September 5, 2012.
