June 2017



We have no speaker/presentation for June, but I think we can spend the time usefully in discussing the Regional.  Do feel free to add items for a "bring and discuss" session, or any topics you'd like to talk about. 

We are back in the library! For those at the May 21st meeting, they had moved us, but we are back in our usual room.

On another matter: Dan Miller has been the chapter historian for many years, and is the keeper of a 4 drawer filing cabinet that is owned by the chapter, nearly full of various records of chapter activities and expenditure records. He asked me last year to find a new home for these files as he is no longer able to fill the roll of historian. I have not been able thus far to find a new historian, and Dan has renewed his request for the cabinet and records to be removed. Given how long he has been patiently waiting, I'd like us to move quickly now to remove these records to a new home.

If you are willing to be our new historian, please let me know. I and the rest of the chapter would be grateful.

Barring that, I would like some volunteers to go with me to Dan's house in Aloha after the June meeting to remove the cabinet and files. I'm not sure if a 4 drawer cabinet will fit in my hatchback, so if anyone has a truck or SUV we could use, that would be very helpful.

If we don't have a volunteer for chapter historian, we'll need to distribute a few boxes of papers amongst those willing to store them for  a while. I will take a box or two, but not the entire load. 

Worst case: I'll rent a truck and storage unit (at the chapter's expense) and move the records there. I hope it does not come to that, since it is an expense we can ill afford.

I hope you will consider helping out the chapter in this way; Robert Gordon has expressed willingness to help out (thank you Robert) but a few more folks to take a box or two would be much appreciated, if we don't find a volunteer for historian.

Ultimately, we should sort this material into records we are obliged to keep, for legal or other reasons, and documents that are valuable to the chapter for other reasons, including historical value. I expect a lot can be recycled and the volume reduced.

I have gotten together some information on setting up a 501 (c) (3) non-profit for the M&F clock, but haven’t had time to delve into it as yet. If this regional works with Christine Palmer, our regional expenses will drop to near zero and we will still see some income, so could transfer some or all of that balance into the non-profit. 

Best regards, 

Jeff Eastwood
