Activity report/update

Bocce Club-Jim Kleiner-our tournament is next week and our banquet will be after that.

Jim K. mentioned that every Monday Sarasota Bay has a coffee hour at 9:00 a.m. that conflicts with the Activities Committee meetings. Therefore, that could be the reason why they do not attend the meetings. Also, he stated that he and other people he has spoken to would like only one meeting a month instead of two. Jim Kleiner made a motion to have only one meeting a month. Heidy Kiess seconded the motion. There was a lot of discussion from people both for and against the motion. A vote was taken with 6 voting yes and 11 voting no. Therefore, the motion did not pass. Carl Shaver made a motion to change the time of the Activities Committee meetings from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Debbie Greeves seconded the motion. A vote was taken with 15 voting yes and 2 voting no. Therefore, the motion did pass.
