Old Business

  1. Century Challenge – discussion that the Wenatchee ride is down 1/3 this year as well
  2. 100 Year Anniversary Rotary Park Project – discussion but still no decision on what this may look like

New Business

  1. Skate Park/Pump Tract Concept (Don Morse park) – Kelly Allen and Lester Cooper had visited the Leavenworth Club which recently had one built.  They have seen their youth coming out as well as visitors to take advantage of this new facility.  Kelly is trying to show support for our youth and to bring to the Chelan City Council for inclusion in the city’s next budget.  Looking also for private contributors.  In Leavenworth their Rotary Club contributed $10,000, Chamber of Commerce $10,000, plus the City contributed.  The cost looks to be about $20 per square foot.  Kelly is looking for $5000 to move forward with a design to be presented to the Council and asking for $1500 from Rotary. The $5000 will be applied to the cost of construction. A motion was made by Phil Moller and seconded by Kirk McGovern to give the $1500. Motion carried.
  2. Chelan High School FFA & 4H – $1000 – These funds were requested in order to provide the ability of many students to raise animals that do not have access to land or facilities, furthering their education in this area. A motion was made by Ty Witt and seconded by Terry White. Motion carried.

Sponsorship – no new requests

Membership proposals – Potential members presented to the board: Julio Talavera and Bonnie Campbell. A motion was made by Kirk McGovern to approve and seconded by Phil Moller. Motion carried.

Good of the Order

  2.
