With concerns about whether volunteers with known heart problems being on the jobsite and liability issues about qualified operators, those present discussed Bob’s request. The
Board’s opinion was that a need could exist and that it would be better to rent rather than buy an automatic external
defibrillator (AED) since it would be needed for only 2 weeks and there would no concerns about machine maintenance or battery replacement, in addition, when renting the AED, you would always be getting the latest technology.

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.

We will be wearing Crew shirts and hats and those present were asked to take these items to volunteers without them. As before, no cut-off’s, short shorts or open toe shoes will be allowed. One share of the profits equals 10 volunteers working 10 hours. The share will be paid in about 3 weeks after the Air Show by 55th Services Squadron (Heidi Snyder).

The Secretary will ask Donna Vogt to print 300 tickets. The Secretary will work on an article for the Bellevue Leader. Ron also indicated that Manager Jeff Barker would like stories and photos of our home building project.

5. Finance Director’s Report (Cont.):
F. No Offutt Chapel Designated Offering in 2019: Per the Catholic Community Coordinator Bridget Huggins on 17 Jun 18, the Chapel is invoking a rule that charities can not receive a designated offering two years in a row. So for the first time, the Crew will not receive a Catholic Chapel offering this year.

(2) Dinner Raffle: $1,400
(3) Church of the Nativity: $60.000

(5) Donations & Misc.: $2,600
$70,000
The above plan will be discussed further and voted on at the next meeting.
H. Other Ideas: George Jarrett indicated that his nurse’s sister would like the exterior of her home painted for adonation. The Construction Director will try to visit the site before the next meeting and see if this work is feasible. Three volunteers expressed interest in working this project.

6. Old Business:
A. Update of Membership Roster: No changes were noted. In coordination with Bob Corsi, the VA Connection P.O.C., the Secretary completed a major update and reduction of the roster.
B. VA Connection (Bob Corsi): Bob has placed over 800 photos of the 2018 Deployment at https://appalachia2018.shutter fly.com .
C. Crew Website ( http://www.accrew.org ): Webmaster Kathi Narlock took the Construction Director‘s camera disk for review of 165 2018 Deployment photos for entering some on the website.

E. Volunteer Recruitment in Bellevue: The Crew plans to have a pancake breakfast with the Confirmation students on Sun, 17 Feb 18 in the Capehart Chapel Annex.
F. 2018 Deployment (Work started on 31 May 18): The Strunk Family moved into their home on Fri, 16 Jun 18. The Construction Director indicated that the total cost of 2018 Deployment was $73,712.11 compared to our fundraising goal of $66,000. A review of the costs indicated that one major cause of the increase in the costs was in the Lumber King Package of $25,000 which was over 20% greater than for the 4-BR home in 2017. The Construction Director pointed this out to Good Shepherd Treasurer Kay Morrow at the time of the settlement but no substantiating statement could be provided from Lumber King. The Construction Director indicated that, in the future, the Lumber King Package needs to be substantiated with written statement. Carpool gas costs were up by almost $500, when compare to last year due to
higher gas prices and adding a FL driver. Vice-President Marcel Moreau suggested we buy two magnetic carts for picking up stray nails on the project site. Some 2018 Lessons Learned include: (1) Take more care installing the door framing to ensure the right header is used. Apparently, 4 Bath window headers were made instead of the required 2 and the excess 2 header frames were installed for the Bath doors and were 2-inches too narrow. (2) Try to keep the window frames as square as possible. (3) Keep the Project Leader aware of any special requests by the owner. (4) Microware vent is better on the front side (exiting horizontally) rather than out the top of the front (exiting vertically). Finish Crew Leader is planning to install waterproof laminate flooring from Lumber King at $2 per SF for the front half of the house and the MBR Bath. This increased flooring work will require some coordination with the other finish work.

7. New Business:
A. 2019 Deployment: Work will start on Thurs, 30 May 19. Berthing reservations were made at St. Joe’s Inn for Wed, 29 May to Wed, 12 Jun 19. Harry Wallace has couple of families in mind for 2019.

The next Air Show is set for 1-2 Jun 19, when the Crew is deployed to KY, but only 4 of the 11 2018 Air Show volunteers will be on the 2019 Deployment, so would it be possible the Crew to still work the 2019 Air Show with non-deployed volunteers?
