1 Meeting called to order at 6:40.

2 Motion to accept the November minutes made by Amy, seconded by Jen. Motion carried.

3 Treasurer reported an ending balance of $7753.36.

4 SOAR/SPAN activities:
New member, Eric Bowen
SOAR check-in went well. Facebook on Zoom, Dec 16 at 6:00 pm
Painted rocks have all been found
Adopt a snowman through SPAN, can be decorated and kept for other events.
Amy said the open house went well, although attendance was low.
Savannah chili cook-off was well attended.
Suggestion to have another Under-Croft event. Tom Sawtelle is promoting memberships – perhaps a family night.
Also, perhaps a “Night at the Bowling Alley” at Lancasters.

5 Re: the Kayak Shed: The village approved putting a new shed near the boat launch. Would SPAN want to purchase it and be reimbursed? Mark said there are issues with that location. A discussion followed about the use of the old shed.

6 We need to finalize the issue of the lock for the shed. Mark pointed out the need for a deadbolt. Amy would like to fix it so that someone doesn’t always have to go there in person to unlock the shed. Maybe someone from the village board , or from the village police force, should be involved. More research is needed on this topic.

7 The village is receptive to the idea of having fishing spots. Mark suggested a level spot with zero maintenance. He will walk the area and take some pictures. Could we supply benches? Could we involve volunteers, the school fishing club? We could use a Bobcat to clear the area involved. Jen said we need a detailed proposal.

8 Tee shirts: We need to buy Tees for less than $10. apiece. If we add colors, the price goes up. Maybe look for local suppliers on line. Sandi Bastedo moved”...that SPAN spend up to one thousand dollars to buy tee shirts, hats in sizes M/L/XL/ and XXL”, seconded by Amy. Motion carried.

9 We need programs for next year. Bring your ideas to the January meeting, or sooner, send your ideas to Sandi.

10 Amber announced that 21 children’s names were submitted for Christmas.

11 Sandi announced that Cornell Extension is offering a free financial consultation service to those interested.

12 Hugh asked SPAN to sponsor an ad for the musical held on January 14/15, 2022.

Meeting adjourned at 8:03 pm.

Respectfully submitted,


David Hickey
