MEETING MINUTES - FEBRUARY 12, 2004

The monthly meeting for February was held on the 12th at the Woburn Elks Club. In attendance were Joe & Janice LeBlanc, Mike Burgess, Nels Anderson, Steve Devine, Steve McKay, Jason Hart, Denise Thorpe and Doug Snook.

This is what was discussed:

At the next meeting we will vote for the officers for the 2004-2005 Year. Here is the proposed slate:

President: Steve Devine
1st VP- Membership: Mike Nadeau
2nd VP: Ronellen/Eric Gagnon
Secretary: Janice LeBlanc
Treasurer: Mike Burgess
Director: Barbara Day

Doug is checking the bylaws to see if you can be both president and director at the same time. If this is the case Steve Devin will resign as Director and either Steve McKay or Doug Snook will seek this position. Doug will let us know before the next meeting.

A year membership runs from Jan - December. For those that have not paid their dues for the 2004 calendar year please do so now! Please contact Mike Burgess for more information.

Janice has been in touch with a local business that provided us with a catalog of apparel and other misc merchandise suitable for engraving. We can mix and match different styles and sizes. Prices seem reasonable and turnaround time will be quick. The catalog is available for all to browse. Some ideas are denim shirts, fleece pullovers, tote bags, visors and jackets. Let us know what you like!

Doug will look into a Banner for the club that we could use for a display. It would be great if it had the club logo on it.

We have started to fill the 2004 calendar - If you hear of any events, or have an idea let us know. Here are some upcoming events:

May 22nd - Our annual drive up the coast of New Hampshire/Maine with a stop to visit Sam at Brits Bits. What drive would be complete without a stop at Wild Willys (even though they may not be open!)
