MONTHLY MEETING NOTES FROM 12/1/20
The regular Post monthly meeting scheduled for Tuesday, 12/1/20 was cancelled due to the COVID-19 restrictions and regulations for El Dorado County being downgraded to the most severe "purple" tier on November 16th. It was decided to hold only an "Executive Board" meeting at 6:00 PM on 12/1/20 to take care of any pressing Post Business. Commander McAdams, Quartermaster Squier, Adjutant Sauvé and Buddy Poppy Chairman Victor Mansfield attended.
We discussed the possibility of a Christmas party, dinner or celebration of some kind and concluded that it was just not possible this year. A suggestion was made by Commander McAdams to have a "Christmas in June" event in the form of a picnic. All agreed that this sounded like a good idea! We also wrote checks to Service Officer Goodspeed to reimburse him for miscellaneous expenses and a check to Victor Mansfield for his extensive travel/gas expenses during the "Buddy Poppy" fundraising event over Veterans Day weekend. Victor also reported on the results of the fundraiser - a little less than usual but still very good considering that we had only two stores to work with. Pollock Pines Safeway and High Hill Ranch opted out due to the COVID-19 situation.
Next meeting is, hopefully, on Tuesday1/5/21. We eill keep the membership advised by email.
Dave Sauvé, Adjutant
