Board Meeting 1/25/17

Greg, Bryan, Marna, Jeremy, Becky, Gloria, Denise

High on Health is 4/22. The color theme is blue and silver and the entertainment is a magician/hypnotist. Gloria reported that someone complained to her that HOH dollars were being spent on other things. The HOH mission statement from several years ago states all money goes to health and family related services. Marna asked what are the parameters of giving.

Bryan again stressed the need for volunteers for HOH.

CHF has asked that we contribute all or some of our share to them. Rotary views itself as necessary to helping smaller community needs and the vote was unanimous not to give any money to CHF.

Jeremy talked about Girls Who Code, a job prep/training program for young women 16-24. Bryan is liaison. Also discussed Southern Oregon Work Investment Board . Due to the stigma attached to unemployment and job training, library staff is being trained to do work training.

Discussion about public access tv: probably don’t want to televise our meetings or commit to hosting a program. But what about the possibility of funding a program where high school students can learn how/ run the AV programming.
