Approval of Minutes – March 24, 2020

Pastor’s Report – Highlight was a shout out to Julia; praise for what she has accomplished, affirmation that the decision to hire her was a good one.

Beverly – Email thank you notes for volunteer services was a great effort.

Drive thru communion – Approximately 40 people were served communion on Easter Sunday.
We will offer again in May if shelter in place is still in effect.

Treasurer’s Report – Approximately $30K was moved from RBC in early April. More investments were moved into cash at RBC. We will be moving another $50K to Affiliated in advance of the SBA assistance. We currently have approximately 40K at Affiliated, with a little under $1M right now at RBC. We are still exploring other offering collection options. Pastor John noted that Karolyn would like to know how we ended year. Julia would like an update regarding online giving options.

Property Board Report
Lawn Service – Mary Rosas and John Barnes mowed the property prior to Easter Sunday. Mary has identified a lawn service, The Weekenders, who is interested in providing that service for the 2020 season. A new contract was developed based on prior year amounts paid ($500/month) and will be circulated for signature by ASLC and The Weekenders.

Motion was made by Libby and seconded by Patty to approve the 2020 lawn service contract. Motion carried.

Observation Windows – CLC
Observation windows have been installed. This completes the remodel project for CLC.
