Old Business

Pool Sign Up Sheet-No one has signed up to volunteer to cover pool.  If no one agrees to cover the pool at night, the pool will be covered at 4 p.m.

Electronic Bulletin Board-The Activities Committee approved to pay for half of the Electronic Bulletin Board.  However, due to the changes in the Board of Directors, nothing has been done about getting the new board so it is still pending.

Memorial Service-will be March 21st.  Anne requested the names of anyone who has passed away since the last Memorial Service to be sent to any of the Executive Board members.

New Business

Exercise Class-Barbara Giacchetti-the class is being held at the Shuffleboard Courts on M-W-F at 8:30 because more than 10 people are attending.

Activities Committee meetings- at the next meeting on February 8th, a Nominating Committee will be appointed to find nominees to run for Vice President and Treasurer which are up for election this year.  The Nominating Committee will present those nominees at the following meeting on March 8th.  Shana has agreed to continue as Vice President and Wendy has agreed to continue as Treasurer for another term.  Therefore, if there are no new nominees presented at the March 8th meeting, it will not be necessary to conduct a meeting on March 22nd for the election.  In that case, there will not be a March 22nd meeting.
