Subject: Minutes of Board Meeting

1. The Meeting was opened by President Vicki Edwards at 7:00 PM, at 9803 S. 21st Circle, Bellevue, NE. Only 2 of 5
directors were present, so a quorum of the Board did not exist. An informal meeting continued.

2. Attendance at the Meeting included:
Vicki Edwards
George Ziska, Jr.
Ron Strawn
Kathi Narlock
George Cawl

3. The minutes of the meeting held on 14 July 2015, will be reviewed at the next meeting when there is a quorum.

4. Treasurer’s Report: Treasurer Janelle Smith was not present to provide a status.

5. Finance Director’s Report: With the Finance Director position vacant, the Secretary brought up the following items:
A. Cans for 2 X 4’s: One attendee brought cans.
B. Dinner and Movie Raffle, Oct-Nov 15: A discussion ensued and eliminating the movie from the prizes was
considered. Ron Strawn volunteered to talk to the Pizza Ranch of Papillion, NE, about donating the three prizes similar
to the total amount of recent years ($275 to $280). We need to finalize to this fundraiser at the next meeting so the raffle
tickets can be printed and the sales can begin.
C. Church of the Nativity, Burke, VA Designated Offering, Jan 16: No new developments.
D. Bowl-a-thon, Mar 16: No new developments.
E. Offutt Catholic Chapel Designated Offering, Apr 16: The Secretary sent an email requesting consideration for an
offering to Pastoral Assistant Peggy Hoffman on 11 Aug 15.
F. 2016 Financial Plan: The Secretary presented a possible plan but it falls short of our 2016 Fundraising Goal of
$55,000, due, in part, to losing the two fundraisers of the Offutt Air Show and the Combined Federal Campaign. The
possible Plan included:
(1) Dinner and a Movie Raffle: $1,000
(2) Church of the Nativity: $42,000
(3) Bowl-a-thon: $3,000
(4) Offutt Catholic Chapel: $2,000
Total: $48,000
G. Other Ideas: We need ideas for other fundraisers and improving our current ones.

6. Old Business:
A. Update of Membership Roster: No updates were made.
B. Combined Federal Campaign: The 2nd Automatic Quarterly Bank Deposit of $1,269.56 for the 2015 Distribution
was received on 31 Jul 15. The letter to past CFC donors was again reviewed and slightly modified. The Secretary will
get the letters out to the 15 previous CFC donors before the end of Aug 15.
C. VA Connection (Bob Corsi): No new developments.
D. Crew Website ( ): No new developments.
E. Colorado (CO) Connection (Gary Piper): No new developments.
F. Volunteer Recruitment in Bellevue: In an email on 11 Aug 15, to the Offutt Catholic Chapel Pastoral Assistant
Peggy Hoffman, the Secretary requested the Crew again work with this year’s Confirmation Class on providing a pancake
breakfast in Feb 16, the Offutt Catholic Chapel.
G. 2016 Deployment (works starts on Thurs 2 Jun 16): The Construction Director determined that the retail cost of
materials to install rain gutters was $350 (compared to a $450 contract cost), in addition, there could be a possible conflict
between the Siding Crew installing the vinyl utility finish trim before the gutter apron on the roof edge which could hold
up the Roofing Crew. The Construction Director suggested and Harry Wallace, the Good Shepherd Chapel P.O.C.
concurred, that we keep things the same, as in previous years, where the Type “D” roof edge is installed all around the
roof and a contractor comes later to install the rain gutters.
H. Insurance Waiver to Offutt AFB: Request was submitted on 25 Feb 15, but still no word has still been received
I. Finance Director Vacancy: No volunteer has stepped forward yet. The Secretary again emphasized the
importance of filling this position for the upcoming 2016 fundraising season.

7. New Business: None.

8. The Crew Meeting was adjourned at 7:52 PM. The next meeting is set for 7 PM, Tues, 8 Sep 15, at 9803 S. 21st
