Financial Report:

  • Covid 19 reduced our activities
  • Account at $15,205.00 with the annual grant of $10,000.00 from RNDO not yet received.

Chairman’s Report:

  • Regional Health Inspector attended the hall with Andrew in the fall and found many deficiencies.
    Some of the concerns:
    • A space between the front doors allowing insects and dust to enter building has been sealed;
    • Chlorination system for water, good;
    • Lack of protocol book for food preparation and storage, completed;
    • Jess has a background in food preparation and would be will to help with health and safety standards.
RDNO will now do monthly Water Tests.

During the cold spell before Christmas the old furnace stopped working and all the water in the hall froze causing major damage. Furnace was replaced, dish sanitizer repaired, plumbing and fixtures replaced, chlorination system replaced.

A wind storm damaged the sign on the road and it needs to be replaced. Doug has offered to build a shelter to protect the sign from weather and Andrew will look into having a sign made.

Grounds Maintenance; it has been difficult to find a volunteer to attend to this job, we will look into finding a contractor to perform these duties. If we are renting the hall for income the grounds need to be maintained to an acceptable level.

John Gyra asked for orientation re: What is the purpose of the club? To provide a place for community functions. RDNO owns the land and the building, MLCC has a Licence to Occupy. Our regional director and a RDNO staff person act as liaisons. Doug offered that we are in need of 2 positions on the executive to be filled, Hall Maintenance and Social Co-ordinator. Joe and John offered to work together on the maintenance.

John has concerns about the river eroding his property. It was recommended he contact Lee Hesketh.

NEXT EVENT: Hall Cleanup, May 6 at 10am.

Meeting adjourned
