Maple Grange picnic was rescheduled for September 22, 2011 from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the senior center. Notices were put up at the center.

Betty made a motion that Octoberfest be canceled. Motion carried.

The Christmas party will be held on December 15, 2011 (snow date December 20, 2011) from 12 noon to 3:00 p.m. at the senior center. Signups will be November 30, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon at the center. Mary would like the signups to give their phone numbers.

The Christmas party will be catered by Rigatony. Melissa will take care of getting the DJ for the music and Mary will take care of the flowers for the table decorations.

It was also suggested by Melissa that people bring a food item for the food pantry when they attend the Christmas party. The board thought it was a good idea.

The Vernon council and the mayor will be invited to the party.

A motion was made at the last meeting by Betty that members of the board cannot be absent from the meetings more than three times a year, without just cause, at which time they must resign. Betty confirmed the rule according to the bylaws.

With no other business to come at this meeting, a motion was made to adjourn the meeting by Fran and seconded by Josephine. Motion passed at 10:10 a.m.

Next meeting will be October 13, 2011.
