President’s Report (Greg):  “Alright—Let’s get this thing started, I guess!?”

*Spoke with Matt re:  “The Sausage Party” (smoked meats with various events mentioned @ the last Bluegrass Fest, with Matt & Diana Stewart.  Mentioned acts:  Monk & the Po’Boys and Cubensis).  Looking at dates, late September, early October.  If not, early Spring 2020.

Vice President’s Report (JT):

*Ordering Business Cards for Jenny M. & Megan B., Will be here soon!

*The ‘Scholarship’ email has been created.  We are asking others to SHARE it!  (Jessica to ask the CCSD High School Counselors to ensure it gets to the CCSD music departments!)

*The website now has a link to an ‘informational page’ to help people better understand our purpose of the ‘Peter Porter Scholarship Fund’, with ease. It will now have a ‘GoogleDocs’ website link, with the ability to keep data records of the scholarship’s additions.  

Treasurer’s Report (Paige): 

*Our LVJBS sponsored Lone Woof Rescue dog is changing from Ash to Laverne (website to be edited soon.) 

*Dues are now ‘monthly’ payments.  $10/month.

* Don’t forget that attending monthly meetings can get you $5 credits for the next year’s dues.  (up to $20max).  Attendance is noted each month and an email is sent your way each December, letting you know the needed dues to keep current.

*Be sure to add your SMITH’S GROCERY card and your AMAZONSMILES account, to the ‘Jam Band Society of America’ non-profit help, to ensure a portion of your purchases comes back our way!  Tell your friends/family!  (We will look into posting an ‘easy’ ‘click here’ link for others to get started.)

Secretary’s Report (Jessica): 

*Adopt-A-Highway bag replacements will be picked up at N*Dot this week. They had gone to our sign-location to clean up the mentioned graffiti & noticed the sign was taken off of the post and thrown into the side-brush.  The sign is being saved for the LVJBS archive and a new one is being made.
