Treasurer

The treasurer’s report was submitted. Our year-end shows a surplus of $ 2,937.28.

For 2003-04, we are predicting revenues of $ 43,810 and expenses of $ 45,575 and therefore expect a deficit of $ 1,765. It was requested that FCA directors comment by May 15th on Treasurer's report as submitted to members by email on April 14th to be accepted.      

New business

§         We welcomed SERCO’s new manager for Ray Friel; Penny Greenwood. She has been with Serco for 3 years, in the leisure business for 10 years and here in Canada for only 6 weeks.

§         Frank Dugal presented the Fallingbrook Canada Day CD Rom slide show that he prepared with George Blake. It is an excellent tool and served to explain the scope of the FCA Cda to Penny Greenwood. The primary use will be for sponsors.

§         Marc Cappelli proposed that this volunteer work be recognized and asked Frank Dugal to add his accreditation to the CD. Ex. Dugal Imaging, who is the official Photographer sponsor - FCA 2003 Cda Day, made this presentation possible.

§         Marc Cappelli proposed that this CD be shown at the FCA Volunteer Awards Gala as an example that highlights Volunteerism at its best and underscores the efforts of the evening’s award recipients.

Councilor Kreling

·         Stage Trailer for Canada Day has been approved by city at no charge

·         Councilor Kreling & McNeely are working on chairs and tables, which are normally provided, free of charge by the city, but are in doubt at this time.

·         City is planning on consulting residents on how they would prefer to be consulted

·         The City’s official plan is to be submitted on April 23rd for final debate and passage.

Canada Day

Zybina Richard mentioned that David Villeneuve would select a date for the next meeting via email.

Newsletter

Don will put out the next newsletter after the awards night to capture details. The cut off date for submissions will be May 1st, 2003. Please send attachments in MS word only.

Volunteer Recognition Awards

Zybina will be asking for Fred Sherwin to advertise the awards date. The awards date of April 26th  was changed to May 10th in light of the conflict of time with the Arts Centre Gala fundraiser, but it has come to our attention that the Gala has been cancelled.

Open Discussion
