-Termination of director: Vote to terminate director position of Bryan Leavell due to no show or response for the last four months. Gene made motion, Chandra seconded. Vote passed. Going to give 30 more days and one last attempt to see if he is still interested, if no response by next meeting then termination is in effect. 

Roadside Signs: Mary Helen put in the request to move the welcome to Rodanthe sign to inside the roundabout where it will be visible. Waiting to hear back. 


Coat Drive: Amberly will notify group that we will need to postpone our participation til next time as we are unprepared to move forward right now. 


Pie Sale: See notes from Amberly. Looking to have at least 50 items for sale. 


Bylaws: Aida emailed board with proposed changes to the current bylaws. Two large ticket items to be discussed, fiscal year and what qualifies as a membership. ACTION: need to call a special meeting of the board to discuss when everyone invested in this can be there.
