1. Treasurer’s Report: Tessie reports that we have a little over $1800.00 in our treasury with all bill brought up to date.
2. Committee Reports: No Reports Given.
3. Old Business:
- A. House Improvements:
- 1. Removal of Dirt - This is a continuing need that we should get done during the winter so that we can do the work on the house in the spring.
- 2. Security Gate - Charles Lemons stated that Scott Stokes said he knew someone who would be willing to donate a gate. Charles Shelton said that he and his son went down to get the steel, but there was none readily available and the price of steel has also risen.
- B. Site inspection of Fort Allen: Charles Lemons noted that we have heard anything from Ann Bader. She has changed jobs and Charles said that he would get her new number and find out whether she was still interested in helping. Charles Shelton said that he had seen someone with what appeared to be surveying equipment down near the fort site. Charles Lemons said he knew nothing about it and expressed some concern over what they were doing. Tessie Cecil said that she would contact Fred Marion and see if he knew anything about it.
- C. Future Events: It was generally agreed that we would probably not participate actively in the Civil War Trails event this year. We have too much work to do and little funds to do it with.
- D. Temporary Building Repairs: Donny checked on paint, as has Jerri – cost estimate so far is about 600.00. He noted that this was a bid from a contractor out of Tennesse who would do the work. The discussion moved to needing to seal the windows – which would also increase securing for the building. Also, we need to make repairs to the outside before painting. Charles Shelton has the siding, and said that it would be best to move it into the barn so it would be available for the repairs. There was talk about doing the work ourselves. If we could get about 30 gallons of paint, we should be able to make a good start on the building. After some discusssion it was decided to set a tentative date for a work day – Saturday 17 March. Buck needs to be contacted concerning the movement of dirt.
4. New Business:
- A. Adam Wheatley, representing Farm Bureau of Bardstown, was introduced by Tessie as a possible source for insurance for the Association. He gathered some information, and was asked by members about the possibility of an umbrella liability policy for the Association as a whole. He said he would check it out and report back to us with a bid. Tessie pointed out that our insurance is not due until July, so we have time.
- B. Tessie requested that we make our fiscal year run from January to December. It would make it much easier on our bank statements, as well as our membership – which would also run on our fiscal year. Having agreed to that, membership dues are now due. Notice will be sent out by mail and by e-mail.
- A. The next meeting will be Friday, February 16, 2007 at 1830. Meeting place is the New Haven City Hall. Meeting adjourned at 2036.
- B. b. Meeting adjourned at 2036
