Executive Committee Report – Dec 08/06

Executive Committee Report
December 8, 2006
Trading Post

Present:  John Malmstrom, Susan Malmstrom, Wayne Smith, Hal Theriault.

The meeting was called to order at 9:00 AM.

Youth Centre:
For publication, we need to get a wish list from Committee members Louis and Sandy, as well as hours to post.  Susan will publish a thank-you letter to donors via e-mail and the Tributary.

Village Meeting;
The recent village meeting was quite well attended, and we were pleased to have politicians and press in attendance.  We will need to watch the Spectator for an upcoming article.

John would like to launch a Communications Subcommittee, and will offer to chair it, as a BRIDGS Executive Committee member.  The two projects he has in mind are: keeping the Tributary and Spectator informed as to what we are accomplishing; researching a quarterly publication (as discussed at the Village Meeting) of volunteer organizations and special events.  Gerry Chute and Tim Wilson have also expressed interest in this project.

Treasurer’s Report:
Susan has drafted a letter to the Deep Brook Lions Club at the request of the Youth Subcommittee.  The Lions are interested in possibly making a donation.

Strategic Plan Initiative:
Hal will contact Donna Hatt to propose submitting a joint proposal to Economic Development.

Meeting adjourned at 10:00 AM.
