Ending balance in checking account is $8,050.30.


Dave reported the $700.00 in the Alabough Fire Fund, would be dispersed when one person cashes their check. Another had not received their check, thus, it will be reissued, thus depleting this fund.


Mel cut a check to the Chamber of Commerce for $150.00 to be used for Teacher of the Year award…  Nominees are: Kevin Neff - Elementary school, Truman Savery - Middle School, Kim Henningson – High School.  Committee to pick teacher of the year are Karen Mueller, Lon Sharp and Dave Batchelor will fill in for Don DeVrees who is unable to participate. 


Discussion to find a coordinator for the 2010 All School reunion was given by Mel who has called coordinators from classes and most said they would be available to help in some way.  Robin Wynia is the only one who said they may be willing to head up the team to organize all of the reunion.  Mel will contact Robin to explain terms and continue to contact others to be on the team.   Brett made a motion to spend up to $2,000.00 to hire a team to coordinate the 2010 all school reunion.  Motion was seconded by Wanda.  The motion was passed unanimously.


Each class will be responsible to inform its classmates and the Alumni Association will reimburse any expenses incurred. A notice will be posted on the Alumni Site regarding hiring paid “all school coordinators” with the stipulation that they be local in and around Hot Springs.  Brett will put a press release in upcoming Hot Springs Star about proposed 2010 All School reunion, stating anyone wishing to be on the team as coordinator should contact Mel.  March 1st was set as deadline to determine if coordinators could be found. If not, the 2010 All Class Reunion will not be held.
