3. President’s Minute: SGM? Palmer

    On behalf of the President, CSM? Lewis C. Lockett, the Vice President, SGM? Robert L. Palmer wanted to welcome everyone to the meeting. CSM? Lockett is out of town and according to Article X , Section B, of the Association Constitution and By-Laws, the Vice President, SGM? Palmer will preside over this months meeting. CSM? Lockett wanted to thank everyone that participated in the Veterans Day Parade. SGM? Palmer then went around the room and asked everyone to introduce themselves, so he could become somewhat more familiar with everyone. Once everyone introduced themselves, the Vice President turned the meeting over to SGM? Green for the Finance Report.

     4. Finance Report: SGM? Green

     Finance Committee: CSM Yates (Chairperson), CSM Battle, CSM? Iannone, CSM Blade,

     SGM Parker, (Alt) SGM? Brooks

    SGM? Green asked everyone to take a few minutes to review the finance report and then he started with the Budget. He wanted to verify a few of the items listed:

    1. Retiree’s Appreciation Day $100.00

    2. Army/Navy/Air Force/Marine Times $440.00 for a three (3) year period.

    3. The Vice President asked about the bonding issue. SGM? Green had not found out exactly how

     much the bonding was, so he set an amount of $400.00.

    4. SGM? Green wanted to make a proposal for our next budget, which is that we increase the

     amount for holiday candy from $300.00 to $500.00. He felt that a budget of $400.00, which

     would go towards the candy for the Veterans Day Parade, should carry us right on through the

     parade. One Hundred Dollars worth of candy should be plenty for the Redstone Housing area.

     Everything else was straight. Let the record show that the Association accepted the budget on 16

     October 2008.

There being no further discussion, SGM? Palmer asked for a motion to accept the budget report as nddiscussed and written. CSM? Perry made the motion and it was 2 by SGM? Brooks. A vote was taken

    and the motion passed.

    SGM? Green did a quick line by line summary of the Finance Report. He wanted to also remind everyone that the Finance Report was for members of the Association’s eyes only and that you need to

    take the report with you when you leave. If you don’t want it, to please bring them to the head of the

5. Entertainment Committee: CMSGT? Evans & SGM? Knight

    The Vice President asked about our next event, which would be the Santa Run and the Christmas Party. The Secretary, CSM? McSwain had information on these events. CSM? McSwain told the members that he had tentatively scheduled the Santa Run with the Police and Fire Departments for 13 December 2008. The one problem with this was he had gone by the American Legion Hall, Post 237 on Drake Ave thto schedule the hall for the 13 of December 2008, but the hall was booked. Nathan, the Legion Hall thmanager said that he could book us for the 20 of December 2008. The question for the membership was thwould we want to move the Santa Run to the 20 along with the Christmas Party. Many of the members thwanted to mention that they wouldn’t be able to attend either event if it was on the 20 of December 2008,

    because of prior commitments. SGM? Green said that he has talked to one of the ROCC managers who said that the Bob Howell Room at the club, which could hold an Association function, would be available on 13 December 2008. The concern with having it at the club would be if the club charges the Association a $200.00 fee for the room, then we would only have a Christmas Party budget of $500.00. This would mean that the Association members would have to come out of pocket for a portion of the meal. The Vice President, in talking with a majority of the members, felt that the Santa Run and thChristmas Party should be on the same day. The 13 of December 2008 was locked in for both events.

    SGM? Green would gather up the details concerning the ROCC and get back to the membership with the details. SGM? Palmer then wanted to remind everyone that he needed two (2) Santa’s for the Santa Run. MCPO? Ray Stuchell had volunteered to be one and a new member SGM John Mattie said he would be the other. SGM? Rivera asked for a motion to accept the entertainment report as written and discussed. ndCSM? Perry made the motion and it was 2 by CMSGT? Gibbons. A vote was taken and the motion

    passed.

6. Special Projects: CSM? Greer / SGM Floyd

    CSM? Rose wanted to ask what coordination had been done for the Santa Run in regards to the Police and Fire Departments. CSM? McSwain said that he had coordinated with CPT Triplett of the Redstone Arsenal Police Department and Terry Hamm of the Fire Department. Both said that I just need to give them a definite date and they would put it on their schedules. CSM? Rose wanted to ensure that coordination with both had been made. There being no further discussion, SGM? Palmer requested a

    In reference to the renovation of the Loft, Mr. Robert Schuman, ROCC General Manager, has come to give the Association members a brief update on the progress of the club renovation. Mr.Schuman says that the funding for the club renovation has already been arranged through FY 2008 for the project of the Loft and the bathrooms downstairs. He figures a target date of 1 April 2009 to be complete. SGM? Green asked Mr. Schuman if the Loft would be complete. SGM? Green asked Mr. Schuman if the Loft would be a private room only for the Association or would it be open to anyone. Mr. Schuman said that the Loft would be open to anyone. It is a revenue generating room. He says that the Association can decorate the room anyway we want, but he must keep it as a revenue generating room. Mr. Schuman says that the only way the Association can be “Bumped” for the use of this room, would be if the Garrison

    Protocol Office needs to use this room for a special meeting. If we already have it scheduled, then we will not be “Bumped”, except for the Garrison Protocol Office. Mr. Schuman recommended that during

    the renovation of this room, that he would move us downstairs to the “Twickingham Room.” We thanked

    Mr. Schuman for his time and coming in to give our Association an update on the clubs progress with the renovations. There being no further discussion, SGM?
