Last year's minutes
1.  Monetary Issues:
- Deposited $700-750.
- Reimbursed Chet $75 for the ropes chest
- Reimbursed Laura for Ringing World subscription.
- It was decided to allocate the next check from a wedding or whatever
for a donation to the RW and the window fund at ON.

2.  Elections:
-  Amy was reelected President
- Mish was elected Treasurer
- Cally was elected Keeper of Handbells
- James was reelected Steeple Keeper
- Mish was reelected Ringing Master
- Britt was reelected Clapper Correspondent (there was some question
about why there was no Boston Area Report in the most recent Clapper)
- Karl was reelected Director of Tune Ringers
- Chet was reelected Historian

3. Updating webpage -- new officer of webmaster?
- There weren't enough people at the meeting to change the
constitution to make a new officer position
- People still felt like there needed to be someone designated to
update the website
- Mish had volunteered, but was already holding two positions, so Mira
was appointed to update the site
- Keeping a Google Calendar of regularly scheduled and special events
was suggested

4.  Writing a letter to the church -- Need to settle on how much
notice we need, duration, time of ringing:
- Britt was elected as the person to draft a letter
- A suggestion of 2 weeks notice for weddings and special services (ie
Patriot's Day)

5. Tower Cleanup
- Laura was elected to organize (she has already sent out email :D)

6.  Other Issues
- Dues to NAGCR sent in as a group?  -- It was decided to try to
collect from as many people as convenient and if people miss the
deadline, they just send it in on their own (as Hat suggested in her
- Tune Ringers Update:  They lost 7/10 regulars, several others were
too hosed or in Germany (which makes it awfully hard to get to
practice!)  Amy has been running things and is trying to work out
scheduling issues.  She wanted to make it clear that they were not
dead, just in a bad slump.
