DEMOCRATIC WOMEN OF JOHNSON COUNTY
Minutes from December 12, 2009 - Pending Approval
The Democratic Women of Johnson County met at the Johnson County Library, and the meeting was called to order by President Belinda Gelman at 10:05 AM. Four members were present: Belinda Gelman, Kathleen Gehr, Evelyn Cook and Karin Bell.
Minutes of the last meeting were read, corrected and approved.
Kathleen suggested a Mother’s Day Luncheon at Prospect Hill B&B for a fundraiser, or a Tour of Gardens in Johnson County, which was a very successful project by the Garden Club.
Belinda recapped the Yellow Ribbon issue (The funeral of the young soldier from Johnson County killed at Fort Hood Texas). Apparently there was some miscommunication between the Republican Women and our group, which has been resolved. Our share of the bill was $80.00 and was paid.
Since our group seems to be dwindling as far as active members are concerned Belinda made the suggestion to ask the Johnson County Democratic men if they want us to join them in order to increase the membership. Kathleen’s suggestion was to maybe join other Democratic women’s groups like Boone or Abington.
Belinda presented her resignation as president for next year, effective January 9, 2010. This would make Kathleen Gehr as Vice President the interim president. Also resigning are Karin Bell (Secretary), Evelyn Cook (Program chairman), Judy Walsh (Treasurer).
The meeting was adjourned at 11:15.
