WI Club Meeting Minutes – February 2019

Wisconsin Club Lake Sumter
Monthly Meeting Minutes
February 18, 2019, Club Meeting


The February 18, 2019 club meeting of the Wisconsin Club Lake Sumter at Colony Cottage Recreation Center began at 6:10 PM with the Pledge of Allegiance led by President MaryKay Childress.

Meal service began by numbered tables to enjoy the dinner of fajitas and fixin’s from Los Magueyes in Wildwood.  Member volunteers set out the food.  Unfortunately, more members and guests attended the meeting than planned and we ran out of food.

Roxanne Evans introduced the January New members who were present and also the February new members along with the guests present.

Treasurer Hal Baumann presented the monthly Treasurers report (copy attached to secretary’s file).  Checkbook balance at end of January was $5433.11.  Hal noted that payments received for the bus for the dinner party and the golf outing will be refunded due to insufficient interest.  A motion to approve was made, seconded, and the report approved.

President Childress encouraged members to get their tickets for the Wisconsin Singers show, Tuesday, March 19, 2019, with 5 PM and 8 PM shows.  Tickets are $22 with discount coupons available that allow purchase of up to 6 tickets at $20 each, a $2 discount.

President Childress asked again for volunteers for club officer positions and our communications director.

Game night is always fun and is next Monday at 6 PM at Bacall Rec. Center.

The Romantics Trio played until the end of the meeting.  Wisconsin Basketball was on at 8 PM so a lot of members left early to watch the game.

The 50/50 drawing was held with three members taking home some cash.

Respectfully submitted,
Richard Thies, Secretary
