Treasurer’s Report:  Not available. Kari will submit receipts to Mary Anne and then she will mail the cheques to Iris. Mary Anne will arrange for and purchase the Directors Insurance this week.

Update on the TreasurerMary Anne reports that she is feeling better and will be able to complete work that is required in the next week. We have documents to describe the duties and roles of the President and Ride Manager and will ask Mary Anne to help us create a similar document for the role of the treasurer.  At our next meeting the club will ask Mary Anne to mentor someone for the role of treasurer at a time and place that is convenient for her. This document will ensure that if a treasurer is not able to carry out their role due to illness, etc. someone will be able to fill in until the treasurer is able to return. Terry, Brenda, Kari
MHC AGM ReportIris shared information from the MHC AGM which can be found in the minutes of the MHC AGM. Our Mary Greenslade was the MHC Volunteer of the Year!!Iris
Updates: Quad Application, Pins, Patches and PamphletsThe quad application was returned as it required some additional financial details.  Brenda edited the details and resubmitted the application. Kari ordered 36 patches for $410.00 which should be sufficient for the next while.  It cost $50 to have the design digitized.  Each patch is $10. We have many pins; they just need to be engraved.  Kari will have extra MTRC pamphlets at the Belair ride if anyone needs more to hand out to interested riders.Kari, Brenda     Kari     Kari
