(Jessica to touch base with George and the LyonsDen Radio to inquire about comp-tickets.)
Treasurer’s Report (Paige):
*The Fahreed Show, at the HideAway, was a successful night of music. We received $50 in donations from the set-up LVJBS table. The LVJBS did provide Hotel rooms for the musicians.
*Smith’s Grocery enrollments will get an email about any renewal to the ‘non-profit’, so keep an eye out & tell your friends! (Also, AmazonSmiles.org will allow you to choose JAM BAND SOCIETY OF AMERICA as your focus.)
Mayor’s Report (Eric F.) Color: Steal-Your-Face Red-White & Blue!
Committee Heads’ Report:
FUNDRAISING COMMITTEE (Kathy): A ‘thank you’ card went around for previous donation donors.
ARCHIVE COMMITTEE (Kathy): Fred & Kathy recently went through their storage unit where some of the LVJBS Archive items are located. The company had some nearby pest/rodent issues. None of the LVJBS’s items were harmed. It was noticed that there were MULTIPLE fliers of (playbills, posters, etc.) that we need to condense for space concern. We will have a future LVJBS meeting (confirmed: September’s Cheba Hut Meeting, Sept. 4th , with the use of the next door area, via Kurt D.) where these items will be on display for any guests to take with and reuse/recycle.
