Board Members Present: David Ingerson, Mary Ann Gilpatrick, John Kellermann, Dick Hamlet, Corinne McWilliams, Bill Moore, Brian Warner

David Ingerson called the meeting to order at 7:15 pm.



Brian met with Will Newman, former PFS treasurer, Brian has yet to get November or year-end reports, so he could not evaluate January report that our bookkeeper Morris McClellan sent yesterday. Brian will contact Mo and Will for 2016 reports, hopes to have January & February reports by next month's board meeting. David explained use of each PFS credit union account.

Concert Committee

David presented profit/loss report by concert from Stan Davis.


Dick reported that we have 88 registrants and two cancellations, and that the break-even is about 90.


John will run year-end membership counts for past several years before next board meeting.

Old Business

Goodman Foundation grant

David said they tend to fund existing projects, ours was rejected because it was just an idea so far.

Rob Hoffman's Play-Day in May

David reported that Rob updated and printed his own flyer rather than entrusting it to our graphic designer, Kim McLaughlin. Board discussed the need for consistent design of publicity for our sponsored events.

Strawberry Social

John will host, pick date before April 10 newsletter deadline. Need to recruit organizer.

New Business

Revision of membership roster

John will update database, run report, send as PDF to board, contact Will to see if he'll lay out booklet in InDesign.
