*Presentation to the Board by Jane West regarding the Perennials Garden Club. Jane summarized what has been accomplished so far since this new club began. It met on Zoom at first after it began in August 2020. Jane was requesting $500 for program speakers. She is able to get some at no charge but some require a fee. Non-profits often ask for donations. After discussion, the Board agreed to provide $500 for the 2023 programs.
Newsletter – Fred will take over the newsletter as Robin has developed carpel tunnel and can no longer do it. She is available to help Fred out. Many thanks to Robin!
2022 WCSC Audit – this will be moved to September
2023 Elections – we need candidates for the November newsletter. Fred will pursue.
Changing Banks – Due to the lack of cooperation from our current bank, we need a new bank. Wells Fargo was suggested. Wayne moved that we contact Wells Fargo about an account. Jody seconded the motion and it carried 7-0.

AED Batteries – the Creakers have 4 AEDs that were donated by an ambulance company. The batteries are at the end of their useful life and need to be replaced for a cost of about $800. Donn has been looking into replacement batteries. After discussion, the sense of the group was that new AED units should be purchased. A motion was made by Wayne with a second by Rich. WCSC should pay 100% of the cost for new AEDs. 5 yes, 1 abstention. Motion passed.
Jeanne leaves meeting. Robin continues taking the minutes.
Creakers will ask the City for shade cover for the dugout. Fred will talk to City officials. Art said the City has a shade plan and Fred will ask for a new shade plan to include dugouts.
Dues for 2023 – Rich made a motion to increase dues to $20 for 2023. Second by Donn. Passed unanimously.
Meeting adjourned 11:21 am.
