Do you live in a Sears & Roebuck kit home?

“My family grew up on the Easthill and I have always loved the structure of homes I rode by on my bike and went trick or treating to on Halloween. But it wasn’t until I was helping my ‘then future husband” purchase a home that I noticed how similar many of the Easthill homes look. In fact, you could say some looked exactly the same? So I went sleuthing…”

June 18 Steering Committee Meeting Minutes
June 29, 2015 – 9:49 pm | No Comment

Members in Attendance: Jason Duba, Jen Williams, Sally Broker, Gina Keenan-Klages, William Kampf, Cortney Draxler, Shannon Paulus, Lynn Gautsche, Mark Wesenberg, and guest Sue Bauer

Members Absent: Mark Ruddy, Jason Anhorn, Tim Laubach

The meeting began with Mark W. moving to approve the minutes of the May meeting Cortney provided.  (Thanks Cortney)  Sally was the second and the motion carried.

Shannon reported that we currently have a total of $69.84 ($19.84 plus $50 deposited from petty cash) in the checking account.  We have 8 volunteers to date to help set up the kubb tournament on July 11th that will bring in $300. Gina said that the CDBG will reimburse our expenses for the domain and the post office box charges that will also go into the checking account.

Per the Agenda

The discussion of the Bike Event was tabled.

By-Laws – discussion about quorum and the voting procedure for the President in cases of ties.

Prairie Report – Mark will be setting work 1 or 2 work dates that will involve cutting and treating trees.

Community Garden – Mark W., Mark R., Doug Reace have had discussions with Todd Chwala and Dave Bollinger about moving garden plots to the north side of the prairie and having them under the auspices of the Neighborhood Assn.  Mark has gathered agreements from other associations to use as working papers.  A shed is planned to house the EHNA signs, store the veggie stand, etc.  We may explore seeking a matching grant from the city.  Mark W. requested permission to gather an ad hoc committee to work on this and would like to recruit Andrew Werthman to assist us.  Shannon moved to give that permission and Jason D. was the second.  The motion carried.

Picnic – The menu will be the same as last year.  Sunday, August 23rd is the date.  The Kubb Derby will be held in Boyd Park that day as well.  There will be opportunities for neighbors to learn to play.  They will break for lunch and the championships will follow lunch. We are hoping Jason A. will be willing to draw again this year.  Jen is checking into live music, and we have the option of using the sound system in the pavilion for the derby and the picnic.  A canopy would be nice so that musicians could be a little away from the conversation, but protected from the elements.

Shannon has the key to the pavilion and the post office box.

Adjournment was at 7:20pm.

Respectfully submitted,
Lynn Gautsche
