BOARD MEETING: 5:30, July 18th, Wellfleet Senior Center
PRESENT: E. and R. Elkin,J. Morrissey,D. Guernsey,Mary Fox, T. Cole., J. Tash,Sheila Lyons,D.Wright

NEW BOARD MEMBERS: The Board needs new members. Should we invite them before the August annual meeting, or at the meeting, Jeff Tash wondered. Most thought that  people would feel more inclined to join if they were asked beforehand. We will need a new Secretary, as David’s term on the Board is up.

AUGUST MEETING: 8/26/ Prez Hall, 6-8, Annual Potluck, Election of Officers. Special Guests: Wellfleet Shellfishermen’s Association…and possibly musical entertainment. David told what has transpired so far. John Morrissey wondered if we should have seltzer on hand, and offered to purchase. Sheila said she could bring plates and cutlery, and would find out from Kathleen Bacon, kitchen co-ordinator, if we need to bring ice.

ADOPT-A -HIGHWAY
Dick Guernsey, after some time heading up participation in this road litter pick-up program, is stepping down. He got a round of applause for his leadership. He asked for people to pick up the baton. The program is every third Tuesday of the (warm) month(s),meeting at 7:00 a.m.

WASTE WATER: This huge subject was mentioned as something that will need to be a Forum topic in the near future.

ADJOURNMENT: The meeting broke at 6:30. The next meeting will be the Annual Potluck, 8/26. Please bring a covered dish.

Respectfully submitted,
David Wright , Sec.    (Happy to have served on such an engaged and intelligent Board. Thank you!)

JULY: This month, we hope to have a joint program w/ the Non-resident taxpayers association on coastal resiliency. How will climate change affect us, and what steps can be taken to plan for and mitigate those changes? Date to be set.

AUGUST: We will have our annual pot luck dinner meeting in Preservation Hall,combined with a fund-raising event for the Wellfleet Shellfishermen’s Association,their Oystermen’s Jubilee. The Parkington Sisters have offered to perform. We would rent the hall, as usual. There is talk of a raw bar. David can act as go- between,getting dates and information. A good time should be had by all.
