  • Recognizing Retiring Members. Suggested a letter of thanks to retirees with an application for retirement membership. Small trinket could be included. Donation in honor of retiree years of service—provide an option to retiree to choose where the donation would go. (Donations ideas: public library; YES fund; No Kid Hungry; Drug Free Cecil; CASA; Boys and Girls Club; YMCA).
  1. Bill moved that a donation of $5 per retiree be made to various charities and organizations. Bridget seconded. No further discussion. All in favor; no oppositions/abstentions.
  2. Member Appreciation. Email members to acknowledge years of service together with a “rain check” as far as recognition in the future. Mailing larger awards/mementos to members could be expensive so we could deliver. Pins could be mailed. CCPS can provide a list of members and years of service. Slide presentation suggested.
