Announcements
 
Tresha thanked Stew and all those who helped out with organizing last week's Changing of the Guard party.
 
Carlye Gillespie and Tim Krell were inducted as officers onto the board.
 
Tresha said that at last week’s board meeting they looked at the budget, which will be presented at the September 11th lunch meeting for club’s feedback.  Also, a fundraising committee will be formed. Please let Tresha know if interested to join that effort.
 
New member application: The board and membership committee have recommended approval of applicant John Bosche. He is a wind and solar energy consultant. Please contact President Tresha with any concerns or comments.
 
Recent resignations from the board:  Allan Stockbridge, Jim Logghe, and Teresa Flinn.
 
District 5050 will have their annual golf event (Golfun) on August 17th at Homestead in Lynden. Our club will sponsor a foursome if anyone interested. 
 
Brad Cornwell with Brewers update:  Volunteers please sign up.  Posters are ready please take some for posting.  Radio adds are coming up.  Facebook page is up and ready.  Remember, this is currently our only fundraiser this year, so let's sell some tickets and make it a successful event!  Ticket can be purchased online at Eventbrite HERE.
 
Dannon asked for volunteers for SAA, Flag Salute, and Raffle duty.  Also, anyone who would like to be a Greeter should email Shannon Terrell.
 
Mike Bates, this year's programming chair, is asking membership for any ideas we would like to have for speakers.
