We also have an invoice - for the July 3rd Dance - for the beer. The final invoice was not set but we need to arrange payment Wednesday. A motion was made to pay the invoice up to $1200. This motion was seconded and passed.
Picnic - The department needs to select a date for the picnic. A motion was made to have the picnic on Sunday, September 11. The motion was seconded and passed. Given "the date", we will bring the Ladder truck down to the park to raise the flag. We will setup the tent for the event on Saturday, September 10 around 4 PM. We will explore using the MAMS tent. Paul Choate is providing the grill and propane. Steve Duce is handling the beef. Ouray Liquors will provide the drinks. Department members will bring side dishes, snacks and desserts.
Basketball Court - Amy has our order in from Sherman Williams, after it had been back ordered. Amy has all the necessary supplies but has been waiting on the weather, which has obviously been awful of late. Amy has also coordinated with Nancy Nixon and the Pickle Ball folks ... again, all just waiting on weather. Amy could use some help for 1 afternoon for about 2-3 hours to etch and get the court ready. She'll be good to go from there.
FJ Rally - Dack relayed that after the FJ rally the crew thanked us for our work . There was, however, an incident with a photographer for the FJ rally. He (the photographer) was inappropriate to the volleyball girls. His behavior was inappropriate toward the volleyball team. The rally's organizers were very supportive and ensured that all photos taken were deleted. They donated $1200 to the department this year.
Membership - Will Clapsadl tendered his resignation today. A motion was made to accept his letter of recognition. The motion was seconded and passed by majority.

Donation - Adam Kunz requested a donation for the Highgraders holiday. Their compressor went and they are trying to raise some funds to get a new one for the event in future years.
