Treasurer’s Report: Healthy income in May at the mall, 11 new memberships (65 new to date). Revenue from lap room, classes, RRR. Still working with COF (City of Ferndale) to secure Pavilion space for the last weekend of March in 2025 for the show. Ralph will be on vacation on 6/13, will not do a payout for a week, will catch up the following week. He will also miss the June general meeting.

Mall Report: 2 year lease signed with same rent, but small $50 increase for garbage service. 

  • rented “as-is” (hot water tank)
  • can lights getting hot – in talks with PSE for an upgrade
  • clause about no jeans, t-shirts, or flip flops (not being enforced)
  • Mondays – clause about $50/ hr fee for not being open during mall hours – assured this will not affect us

The next Wire Wrapping class with Bruce Wickler is on Monday, June 24th. There are spots open, come to the mall to sign up and pay $22 fee.

Old Settlers Days: we still need a few volunteers to pull it off. We need help setting up on Thursday 7/25, manning the table Friday and Saturday 7/26 & 7/27. This is a great way to support the club and give us a face in the community.

Vending Opportunities:

Jam on the River – Saturday, July 13th in Ferndale at Riverfront park. For more info, contact Heather Sheirill: director@ferndale-chamber.com.

Friday, 8/2 and Saturday 8/3 – Ferndale Block Party. Contact Ali Hawkins: ferndaleblockparty@gmail.com

RRR: We can set up on Friday, September 13th between 3-6pm, no overnight security. The Rock Rendezvous 2024 is scheduled for Saturday, September 14th. Members can pay for space(s) at the Club meeting (June 17th) or at the Mall Club Store. The cost is $20 space with a maximum of 2 spaces.

30 of the 40 spaces have been taken, so sign up if interested. 10 spots remaining.

Todd is updating the website with correct info for the 2024 show. 

June theme for show ‘n’ tell: Washington stones. If anyone has any specimens we can use for display during Old Settlers Days in July, please get in touch with the board to arrange.

Outstanding: Sedro Woolley club, whom are club members have requested to borrow tables for use during their show. After much discussion, a motion was made to collect a $200 damage deposit for tables, which will be refunded upon return of tables in the condition they were borrowed in. This is a one-time courtesy/ goodwill gesture. Voted, passed. 

<Discussion and agreement to continue having board meetings in the Portal Way Clubhouse.>

Meeting adjourned.
