Old Business

Resignation: David accepted Jerry’s formal resignation from the Board.

Policy -Jimmy on behalf of the Policy Committee recommended to accept the following
addition/correction to the policies:

Dance, festival, performing and visual arts materials may be displayed at HMFS
sponsored activities.

During discussion, some one suggested prefacing with “Only” for clarity. The policy was
changed to:

Finance. The checking balance is $11,529. Profit for the first half of 2008 = $596. Elaine handed
out the half-year report (see attachment) of expenses vs budget. This does not include any
Moondance income, as we have not deposited any as of 30 June 2008. The bottom line is we’ve
taken in more income than we projected in the budget which has covered expenses that exceeded
the budget, thus leaving us with a small profit of $596. David acknowledged Elaine for all the
hard work she’s put into creating clarity in regards to financial aspects.

HMFS Committees – David passed out the Committee list with current chairs and members.
With some rotating off the Board and a few others on numerous committees, there are some
openings available. Chairs to be filled: Governance, Finance, Volunteer Coordination, Facilities,
and Public Relations.


Break: 5:15-5:20

Check-in with remaining committees (the minutes only include those who had contributions to
make)
Building/Maintenance: Bathrooms and fans need maintenance.
Special events committee : June is continuing to work on Monster Mash.
Moondance committee


Need 50 more men; $10 late registration fee now applicable; cabins have less bunks due to


remodeling by the park, thus some may not get into cabins because of request for single beds;


scholarship person needed; need 16 dozen more eggs; John and Jennifer are doing lights; more


attenuation needed to replace what’s at the Y; Harriett will cater dinner
Next Moondance meeting : 8 Aug 2007 @ 6pm at RFL before the advance dance.

Advance dance – make announcements clear that Advanced dance is for those who have been
dancing for awhile and feel comfortable dancing without walk throughs.

Y- Dance-Having a successful year w/ good attendance and staying with budget and payment
plan. Steve Walker should be paid $150 for sound since he drives from Mt. Rest.

Volunteer committee – reviewed the requirements to volunteer. Clarified confusion that progam
is for RFL only on Saturday dances and not the Y, though we could certainly consider
developing a program for the Y.

Booking/callers – any questions/concerns contact David

Sound Committee: John is the new chair of this committee. Immediate attention of the committee
is sound attenuation as related to Moondance and the Y.

Next meeting: 21 Sept 2008 @ 3:30-4:15, Moondance follow-up, party @ 4:30 at David’s house
