 Lapidary Report:  

  • A volunteer to help in the Lapidary room will be needed in the future due to Glenn is moving to Hawaii. Candi is going to learn from Glenn how the Intro class runs.
  • Tracy is going to start the Lapidary class in the near future.
  • Remember, if you use the equipment, it is up to you to make sure the water is filled in saws and grinders. Also, you need to clean up after yourselves when using the equipment.  The person in charge is there for information and safety.  They are not there to clean up the machines after use.

Show 2022: 

  •  Deb reviewed the totals for the show. We had positive feedback from the vendors. 
  • Wes discussed the cost of the table rentals and feels we should purchase tables for the club.  There was an issue with the rental company not delivering the tables at the time stated which would have put the vendors and club far behind in set up.  A motion was made and seconded that we purchase 30 6′ tables for the club. It was approved by 100% vote by the board. 
  • We will have a detailed floor map made up for the next show giving vendors their spot and where the club will set up, etc.  Deb asked that there be signs made for the silent auction table and club sales that are at a height above the tables. Bonnie and Nancy will work on the signs.  It was discussed to sell some display cases.  More information will be forthcoming. 
  • There were enough volunteers to load up the items from storage to the show. Next time more volunteers are needed on Sunday to help take back items to storage.  Food truck:  Candi and Gordy will talk with them to see if they are willing to do the next show.  Everyone was very delighted with the food.

New Business:

  • Mall store – Did well over the weekend.
  • A donation of $50 was made to the club in memory of Rick Barrett.

Meeting adjourned at 7:34 pm
