Church of the Advent minutes from 2012 and 2013

I have included the meeting minutes from the Advent Guild Meetings from 8/1/2012 and 8/28/2013 below.


Meeting 8/1/12
Attendees: Dale, Danielle, Elaine, Emily, Genni, John, Laura Dickerson, Ricky
Guests: Anders, Dan, Edward, Kirby, Leonard, Theresa

Treasurer report:
Church bought new ropes.
Haven't gotten dues for the past year or spent much money.

2 ropes still haven't been switched out.  It is likely the 7 and the 3.  (The 7 has a splice in it.)
Someone should inspect the ropes: 8 was mistucked or it was in one position for too long and needs repair (fibers are only taped.)  Others need retucking in the next few months.
The ropes were bought in Calendar '11, hoping they last 10 years.

Tower captain had nothing to report.

Ringing master report:
Successful quarter peal recently of dicksons spliced with ___

Church Liaison:
Things seem to be going well between the Church & us.  Two things to note regarding things we would like done: 1) the walls should be painted to minimize dust, 2) Is the fire alarm done? Remind Church by email.
