President Betty Lou Palmer opened the meeting.

Betty Palmer introduced Nicholas Toich.  He received the Arts Council Scholarship seven years ago. He gave us an update on what he has done since he started college.  Nick went to Lorain County Community College and then went onto Kent State University, where he studied interior design and marketing.  He would like to get into reviving historical sites, especially in Cleveland, keeping some things original and using new ideas to create something that is lasting.

Garalynn motioned to accept the minutes.  Georgann seconded.  All in favor.  Motion carried.

Finance Report – No changes since last month.

Corn Festival – Betty Lou has 5 contracts so far.

Community Care – Easter Baskets.  Georgann made a motion to donate up to $300 for the baskets.  Vee Valga seconded.  All in favor.  Motion carried.

Discussion was had on doing a different fundraiser next year to replace the Arts Festival.  Betty Lou is finding that it is getting harder every year to find people to help her and she cannot do it alone.  This is our biggest fundraiser to help provide a scholarship to an outstanding senior.  Please, if you can help for just a few hours, it would really be appreciated!  The dates for the Corn Fest are August 12, 13 & 14.

Old Town Hall – Fiddler on the Roof is now playing.

North Ridgeville Endowment – March 23rd, Spring Fling from 3:30 p.m. – 7 p.m. at Bullfrogs.  Cost is $20.
