discusses upcoming events
On Thursday, the Community Club meeting was called to order by Peggy Wilson at 6:30 p.m. Glenny Barnes read the minutes of the Feb. 6 meeting and they were approved as read. Cheryl Hillman gave the treasurer's report. Peggy reported on the scholarship CD balance. It was decided to wait until April when the CD matures to decide whether to cash it out and deposit the funds until scholarships are due to be paid or to just let the CD turn over and use funds from the checking account for scholarships.
All plans for the upcoming March 16 baked potato, salad and dessert bar supper seem to be in place. Workers are reminded again to gather at the Community Center at 1 p.m. to get the potatoes ready for baking. Decorating the center will follow.
