MONTHLY MEETING NOTES FROM 1/5/21
The regular Post monthly meeting scheduled for Tuesday, 1/5/21 was cancelled due to the increased COVID-19 restrictions and regulations for El Dorado County being downgraded to the most severe "purple" tier on December 10th. It was decided to hold only an "Executive Board" meeting at 6:00 PM on 1/5/21 to take care of any pressing Post Business. Commander McAdams, Quartermaster Squier, Adjutant Sauvé, Trustee Joe Young and Buddy Poppy Chairman Victor Mansfield attended.
We reimbursed Service Officer Goodspeed for the groceries and cooking supplies he purchased for Chef Leo Cooper to enable Leo to maintain his "Food for Vets" program during the holidays. Adjutant Sauvé mentioned a thank you letter we received from Penny Hutchinson regarding the help we gave her in cleaning up her property prior to her move. He also reported that Chaplain Shepherd, SO Goodspeed and Steve Blackstock participated in the "Wreaths Across America" program at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon on 12/12/20. Victor Mansfield did the same at two local Placerville cemeteries. Chaplain Shepherd and Adjutant Sauvé also participated in a graveside service for a Vietnam veteran in Pleasant Valley on 12/19/20.
Quartermaster Squier reported on several items that were brought up at a recent District training session she attended that need to be added to our bylaws, including the listing a rules for use of our Post debit card. We need to list recurring expenses in the by-laws instead of writing individual receipts for every small transaction. The be action by vote of membership on these additions to the bylaws at our next regular meeting. We also need to nominate and vote on a replacement for Trustee Don Browne, who is relocating to Southern California. We will address this also when we can meet again, hopefully at our February 2nd monthly meeting. We will keep the membership advised by email.
