Meeting Minutes


     The Hidden Valley Lake Garden Club held its annual pontoon cruise on Sept. 11. Although it was a chilly evening, 2 of the 3 boats cruised the whole lake while the 3rd boat headed straight to the dock at the home of Ramonda Bellegia. When everyone finally docked, food, drinks and desserts were spread out between the boats. As usual, there were few left-overs.
     After dinner, President Kathy Schneider opened the meeting. The minutes from the Aug. meeting were read and Luann Roberts gave the treasurer’s report. Both were approved.

Old Business: Jane Ulrick reminded everyone about the next Bunco party. It will be held Oct. 18th from 1-4pm in the community center. Tickets will $15.00. Members were asked to bring their usual snacks and drinks.

New Business: Plans for the Christmas party were discussed and it was decided to have it at Dearborn Country Club. Wilma Gardiner and Claudia Richardt will make the arrangements.
     Kathy thanked the boat captains, Bill Roth, Jim Schneider and Luann for the use of their boats.
     Jane announced that the yard of the month award was given to Jo Williams on Tuppence Trail.
     Members were told that Sheri Day would have more surgery on her leg and that cards and notes would be appreciated during her recovery.
     Vice president Marti Sharpe told members that the Oct. meeting would be a trip to Madison, In. for a tour of the Lanier Winery. She will be checking on arrangements to stop for lunch before the tour. An e-mail will be sent to members with details.
     As the business of the evening was complete, MaryAnna Taylor made a motion to adjourn that was seconded by Pat Sutton. Meeting adjourned.
     As the pontoons headed back to the marina, the sky cleared and the stars came out. Another great cruise.

                                                                               Respectfully submitted,
