Basketball hoops taken down, acoustic tiles installed, new lighter kitchen window roller installed. The boil water advisory is still in effect but RDNO has drilled a new well and replaced the old plumbing. Commercial dishwasher purchased with help from RDNO. The phone service was changed from Telus to Xplornet; much less money and additional wi-fi. Ken facilitated new gravel covering for parking lot and new sign on roadway. A permanent NO FIRE policy has been implemented. The board has committed to Watershed Interpretive Centre. Last year’s bursary winners were Nathan Allen and Jack Hesketh. MLCC has taken over Adopt-A-Highway from Rawlings Lake Road to Sigalet Road. Still struggle to get attendance at events. A new projector and screen are on order. 

NEW BUSINESS

Shannon requested a floor cleaning zamboni to improve cleaning of hall. She will look into options available. 

BY LAW CHANGES Russ has prepared some changes to the By Laws but the changes couldn’t be made because there wasn’t a quorum as per current constitution. 

ELECTION OF OFFICERS 

Huguette nominated a slate, Terri, Ken, Andrew Doug and Fred Smith who will take over Russ’s position as Treasurer. All in favour. 

ODDS AND ENDS

Joe Deuling gave a short talk on the history of the Mabel Lake Community Club. A discussion followed on ways to get more people taking an interest. Huguette suggested interviewing a few new people to see what would entice them to come out to events. Some suggested events we could hold:

  • movie night

  • drop in jam

  • video game night

  • newcomer event

We need to incorporate a social committee director that has a group to call on to help with events.
