February Meeting Minutes

Where: Athens Restaurant in Augusta, GA
When: February 7, 2008
Who: Charlotte & Jim Avant, Donna & Brian Bogardus, John Bowles, Gail & Miller Butler, Carol Haff, Jackie & John Nicholls, Dave Schumacher, Stacey & Cindy Timmerman, Patti & Rudy Wilmoth and Dave Winkler.

Treasurer’s Report: $1,564.56


  1. The fruits of last month’s planning meeting has now been fully uploaded to the Club web page.
  2. Past events were reviewed:
    1. The January breakfast in Saluda was attended by just two cars. Attendance was limited by the threatened wintery weather. Too bad as the food was reported as great by the 4 folks who went.
    2. The impromptu Game Night never got off the ground.
  3. Future events were previewed:
    1. The February breakfast will be in downtown Augusta on the 16th at the New Moon Cafe on Broad street.
    2. John Bowles discussed the future of the Elmcroft Senior drives. He was worried about the insurance issues if anything were to happen to a resident while on the drive. Elmcroft’s insurance is only effect when the residents are riding in the Center’s bus. The Club has no event insurance, so everything would have to fall under the umbrella of the driver’s insurance. After some back and forth it was agreed to table this issue for a future meeting.
    3. The Anniversary Dinner Committee Chair presented the Club with a dizzying array of choices of where we might attend, what we might eat, how much we might spend doing it and what night we might do it. After a long discussion (for us anyway) we agreed on the place, 6th at Watkins in Augusta, the date, Leap Night February 29th and how much the Club would rebate the attendees, $15 each. A letter would be sent to everyone in the Club so they could RSVP, mark menu choices and return a check for their meal cost.
  4. There was a 50-50 raffle, but the Secretary didn’t write down the results, so the following is the best recollection of a mind that suffered way too many concussions on the pee-wee football field: Charlotte Avant won (again) and took the $12 cash. There were 3 runner up prizes and they went to Gail Miller, John Nicholls and Cindy Timmerman.
  5. We had a guest in attendance, Larry Garner, who soon became a member. He and his wife Rita own a 1997 Montego Blue, so say Hi when you see them next.

The President reminded the assembled that the March meeting was at the Asian Buffet in North Augusta and then turned us loose.

Respectfully submitted:
Donna Bogardus
Club Secretary
