New Officers were elected. Charles Grimsley volunteered to serve as board chair for one month until his term ends, then Debbie Yates will begin serving as chair. Vice chair is Cynthia Rowe; Treasure is Barbara Shepherd; Secretary is Linda Waggener.

The date, time and place of the regular monthly meetings were changed to allow for greater participation by members. The new schedule for the meeting is the first Thursday of each month at 4pmCT in the Jim Blair Center.

The next meeting will be Dec. 1, 2016 at 4pmCT in the Jim Blair Center, 901 Hudson Street, Columbia, KY.

In other matters from the Director:

The Jim Blair Center is fully rented.

The HVAC has been installed and is working well.

Upgrades are desired for the gym floor and outdoor playground equipment. Prices are being researched.

Policies and procedures for the Board are to be updated. Copies will be brought to the next meeting for review.

Long range plans are called for and will remain on the agenda as a reminder of needed action.
