Date: July 5, 2022 

Meeting Start: 7:10 PM

Location: ChebaHut, UNLV Rebel Plaza

Attendees: Johnnie T, Paige T., Jessica G., Will H., Star H., Dan R., Greg S. (via phone)

Item 1: President’s Report (Johnnie):

“Shall we get started!?”

Thanks to our new LVJBS Members, Will & Star Houston, for joining us.   :)

  • TheeMessArounds had a good June 12th, Saddle & Spurs, turn out.  They will play again on July 10th & August 14th. (We’re asking all to be sure to spread the word (like & share it) for extra advertisement help.)
  • No reply yet from Goodwill via email attempt regarding instrument donations.  JT to call again soon. More info TBD.
  • One of our longtime members, Steve Yakaitis (Basia) has been gratefully showing more interest in volunteering and assisting us with fundraising since his retirement. JT is hoping to make Steve an ‘assistant’ of sorts by helping to create a letter for sponsors to help with fundraising. Hoping that Steve could find various sponsors’ best contact and JT would follow-up accordingly.
  •  No reply from Dan R. as of now, in regards to the LVJBS’ empathy towards his recent loss of his lovely wife.  (*See ‘Treasurer’s Report’ below for more info…)

Item 2: Vice President’s Report (Adam-absent)

  •  No report.  We send our love & healing strength for recent injury. 

Item 3: Treasurer’s Report (Paige)

·       A.    Review of balances. Monies in both checking and savings (Scholarship fund money)

·       B.    Review of AmazonSmile added funds ($37+)

·       C.    Discussed the ‘Las Vegas Jam Band Society Memorial Tree’ --We mentioned a possible memorial tree for our recent losses (Jenn M, Donna R., etc.).  Looked into pricing for these types of memorials. $500 to designate a ‘tree’ at a random Las Vegas park.  We could ‘byo-plaque’ to a purchased/planted tree OR for $100 add our name plate/plaque to an existing tree. Group is leaning towards finding a great tree at Sunset Park (since it is centrally located in the valley and is one spot that ‘we’ have been to or hosted various drum circles at, in the past & since it would make for great, future memorial gatherings of music & friendship.)         Paige to bring more info to our August meeting.

·       D.     PAY YOUR DUES!  J

Item 4: Secretary’s Report (Jessica)

  •   Nothing new to report.

Item 5:  Mayor’s Report (Greg—via phone)

·       A.    Color:  Aquamarine

Item 6: Production Report (Greg—via phone):

  • Spoke with Nate at the SandDollar Plaza regarding the Friday, Sept. 23rd
  • SHAKEY FEELIN’ event.  $500 from the LVJBS and $500 from the SandDollar was agreed upon.  A ‘tip jar’ will be present and Jimmy will get those proceeds ShakeyFeelin’s way.  (Greg to send a graphic to JT and Jessica for advertising help.)
