JUNE MEETING MINUTES
• UMV Meeting Minutes June 2013 PDF
Junes meeting was held at the Hyde Park VFW on June 5th and began at 7:15pm. There were 11 members, 5 officers and 10 guests. The treasurers and secretary reports were read and accepted.
Mike Patch came to talk to us about options for him cooking the meal. Asked that we come up with a “dream” meal and a “practical” meal- he would provide us with a price. Said we should be using the services available to us such as the culinary arts programs, Price Chopper/Hanafords and Costco for food/paper product donations. Said his price would depend on how much we want to help with clean up or if he would have to hire help. He is donating his time to help us out. He suggested we rotate out help at 5 people per time block. The VFW Auxiliary provided options for us as well- Ham/Turkey with potatoes, vegetables, tossed salad, rolls and desert $14/plate, Italian Buffet- lasagna, chicken alfredo, spaghetti, tossed salad, garlic bread & desert $15/plate. We will get prices from Mike and discuss at the next meeting. Marge and Don have been in contact with both Green Mountain and Wilkins for a price on this year’s motorcycle (2013 Superglide Custom). Phil motioned and Kevin 2nd- We will purchase from Green Mountain unless Wilkins provides a price by 6/6. Discussion on Nomad as a band option this year, play list was passed out and discussed. It was tabled until next meeting- hoping someone can hear them. We are still looking for Raffle Items.
The April UMV meeting started at 7:15 and was held at the VFW in Hyde Park. There were 3 board members and 10 members present.
The treasurers report was read and accepted. There was a brief discussion/recap of the March meeting since there was no secretary report.
Donnie has received some scholarship applications- we plan to meet some night in May at Donnies as we have in the past. The date will be picked at the May meeting. We plan on getting a lasagna from Costco’s to try for dinner since we are considering that as an option for the Harley Raffle.
Hartigans sent a letter asking if we were in need of their services this year- offering discount for multiple units. Donnie will call to see what price they give him as a “regular” person before we call them as UMV. Kevin said he would check with some people he knows about prices.
Mike will ask the food vendor to donate a portion of his food sales to the Shriners.
