Also mentioned Bob's space, which will come up for rent this coming spring, and our option of first refusal for that.


Ben wasn't at the meeting, but we thanked him for a year of great service!


Darrell gave us the really great news that we now have 28 members and for one of the first times in EMS history are back in the black. WooHoo! He mentioned that we had about $1077ish in the account and there were a few new members this month. We talked a bit about the one person who paid for a whole year, and how to handle it. Also we revisited the personal property tax discussion and possible ways of handling that. The first step is creating a list of equipment, which then gets updated for January 1st.

  • Start learning the wiki and how we take minutes.



  • Clif find an org to talk to that tries to minimize its personal property taxes.
  • Teach Tanda how to take and post notes.


  • Darrell and Dean work on equipment ownership list.
