Tom Rougeaux reported that after much effort, our request to participate in this years "Taste of Redondo" street fair has been declined. This event ( formally-Frontier Days) has contributed aproximently $1200 to the Clubs annual income.
A brain storming discussion took place on how the Club could make up this short fall. Ideas range from renting booth space at Wilson Park on the 4th of July and sell Hot Dogs, Sodas, Water etc. to perhaps Co- Hosting another pancake breakfast event with a local community group and splitting the profits. Ideas are needed from all members! Please direct any suggestions you might have to Robin Sawyer who will be heading up this new committee.

Coy Chandler requested that the Club consider purchasing a 10' x 20' E-Z up type car cover to replace our current "Fair Booth" for $170. A motion was made and carried for this purchase.

Keith Musick, on behalf of Riviera Little League, thanked the Club for its annual Outfield Sign sponsorship.

It was reported that 40% of this years membership dues have yet to be paid. A telephone tree was organized to contact and extend a special invitation to all unpaid members to attend Steak and Joke Night and please bring their best joke, appetite and dues.
