3. The minutes of the meeting held on 8 November 2018, were approved.
4. Treasurer’s Report: Treasurer Janelle Smith provided the following status, as of 30 Nov 18: Great Western Checking Account: $3,210.64; Fidelity Money Market Account: $64,961.31.
5. Finance Director’s Report: The following items were discussed:
A. Al Cans for 2 X 4’s: No new developments.
B. Papillion Pizza Ranch Raffle: A total of 270 tickets were sold for total revenue of $1,350 which is a new record and only 10 tickets short of our goal of 280. After paying for 20 store certificates, net revenue was $1,128.76 (= $1,350.00 – $221.24). The average net revenue for 4 Pizza Ranch Raffles is $1,194.69. Winners from the drawing held on 15 Nov18, were 1st – $150: Debbe Moreau; 2nd – $100: Lori Holloway; 3rd – $50: Mike Cleary; 4th – $50: Bridget Huggins; 5th – $50: Barb Branco. Ten people attended the drawing/dinner at Pizza Ranch. Per Finance Director Ron Strawn, the Pizza Ranch Asst. Manager Samantha Oxley indicated that we will have to pay for half of the store certificates in the future. With this payment arrangement, we should probably cut back to only offering a total of $300 in certificates for the raffle next year and some present were questioning whether Pizza Ranch is the best deal available. Therefore, during the next year, we should consider other possible sources for the raffle certificates including the Texas Roadhouse, suggested by our President. Treasurer Janelle Smith suggested that maybe we could combine certificates from several sources for the next year’s raffle. Vice President Marcel Moreau questioned the whole purpose of the raffle, since many of the raffle tickets are being bought by Crew members rather than people from outside the Crew.
C. Church of the Nativity, Burke, VA: Bob Corsi indicated that the offering for the Crew will be held on the weekend of 5-6 Jan 19.
D. Bowl-a-thon, Mar 19: The Secretary indicated that we will need to start gearing up for this event at the next meeting.
E. Offutt Air Show, 1-3 Jun 19: We need to start looking for volunteers for this event.

Depositing the $30 check obligates the Crew to abiding by the rules of the Network for Good but no annual fees were noted.
