December 14, 2017 Meeting Minutes

The Meeting – was held at the Mayfield Twp. Hall

Networking – 5:00 PM, set up refreshments, decorate for Christmas Party

Refreshments – the meeting was called to order at 6:30 PM by President Glen Pace.  Everyone enjoyed the lovely Christmas potluck and ham dinner.

Business Meeting – the meeting was called back to order at 7:15 PM by President Glen Pace he gave thanks to the board members, Jan and Ken Zawisa, and the membership for all the hard work that goes into making our club a success by bringing the fantastic food for the potlucks, donations to the monthly raffles and door prizes and to those that volunteered their homes and gardens for the membership to enjoy. Mark Hanner also thanked Glen Pace for his dedication to this club and for helping to make it enjoyable and educational.  Glen also asked the membership to remember the families of those that lost loved ones this year, Jan Everson and Joyce Vescio.

Summer Garden Meetings – The membership was encouraged to consider signing up to host one of the summer garden tour meetings in June, July, August, or September. The sign-up sheet will be available at all meetings until those dates are filled.

Hosta College – At the November board meeting it was decided that EMHS would give away 6 paid registrations to Hosta College March 16 & 17, 2018 (member will be responsible for their own transportation, lodging, and any additional class fees). Glen will send out an email to the membership stating the rules (member in good standing and a deadline) and request that every member interested respond to the email.  Glen will then do a random drawing of all members that responded then notify those winners.  Glen stated that he has no conflict of interest because his registration is paid because he is an instructor at Hosta College.  Depending on whether the member is also a member of MHS the member will either get $55.00 or $42.00.

Election of Officers – This year the position of  President and Treasurer are open.  Glen, opened up the floor for any nominations to take either position?  No one in the club volunteered for either position.  Glen Pace and Barb Hunter stated they would be happy to stay on in their current position.

Name Badges – Please sign the sheet if you need one, remember the first one is free and replacements are $2.00 each.  If possible please save the magnet from the back of a ruined badge to save cost.

Spring Plant sale – Cathy Hodgson presented the club with the plants that the Fundraising Committee had come up with this year.  Those plants are Hosta Half/Half, Christmas Candy, Sun Mouse and Wrinkle in Time.  Also, the club will have available Bush Clematis Violet Stardust and Hellebore Blushing Bride’s Maid. Each plant will be $10.00 and will be delivered at the April meeting.

Gift Exchange – Participation was for those that brought a gift to the exchange.
