Secretary's Report - October 2023
Our annual meeting was held and we had 35 people pay dues, along with about 48 attendees to our Annual Family Picnic on October 2, 2023.
Jon recorded that the expenses for the picnic were covered by paid dues of membership. Torry called the meeting to Order after that report, and there were some active discussions by the members in attendance about the possibility of improvements being made to Old Gun Road.
After those discussions, the Board promised to have updates posted when received for all members to know the status of the possibility of improvements by Chesterfield County.
There was discussion about the amendments proposed to the Old Gun Road Civic Association Constitution, which has not been revised for more than 10 years. Based on this discussion, a current draft of the Amended Constitution will shortly be posted on the website for all to review.
The Board decided, based on those amended matters that $16,000.00 of the funds available would be invested into a 7 month CD at Atlantic Union Bank, which is a low risk, FDIC insured product, and will generate approximately $500.00 in interest through the end of May 2024. That investment will leave over $4,000.00 for emergency expenses, and we can decide in our next annual meeting in the fall, 2024, or before any other rollover options, which would be considered.
We also elected Torry as President, Jon as Treasurer, and Carl as Secretary for a two-year term. Everyone seemed to enjoy the beautiful day along the James River, and the meeting was adjourned.
Carl J. Witmeyer, Secretary OGRCA
