April secretary minutes were reviewed. Everyone agreed there were no changes to be made, so Heather made a motion to accept them as they were on the website and Robin seconded. Motion passed by the club.
Treasurer’s report: Beginning balance: $4,839.59. Payments were in memberships of the amount of $59.26. And Expenses were $227.74 from GoDaddy, as well as $227.74 to Pam MacFarlane who paid GoDaddy when they wouldn’t take the club’s check. Somebody was going to Pam to see if she knew why they suddenly accepted the check, and to see what it would take to get it back since the club had already voided it, or if it’s just left alone and we end up paying for the next four years. Cash on hand is still total of $100.00 which brings the ending balance to $4,543.37.
Show Committee: A rough draft of the clubs’ show, held in September, was shown and looked over by those in attendance. It was also tabled that we need to find someone(s) who is willing to run our silent auction during the show. Duties may include gathering items, making bidding sheets, set up at the show, and collecting money at the end.
Horse Expo: Jamey wanted to know if the club was interested in signing up for the expo again next year, just earlier so that we could get a little bit of a discount. Heather motioned that Jamey get the ball rolling on that, and Robin seconded. Motion passed by club.
