DIRECTOR’S REPORT
July 2012
 
  1. Soap sale:
The Friends recently sponsored a handmade soap sale fundraiser to coincide with Mother’s Day. There were 71 bars sold and the Friends made a profit of $213.
 
  1. Roof Status:
Kurt has been corresponding with our lawyer regarding the bid specifications. I’ve asked Kurt to give me a status update for the board meeting. Since we will have to be closed for at least a day or two while the roof is being worked on, I’ve already blocked off some weeks in the meeting room in August, September, and October that haven’t had days booked by the public yet. We’re not sure of the timeline yet, but hopefully it will be done sometime during that 3-month period.
