President’s Report
President Mr. Teller gave the president’s report. Check number 1988 for 1500.00 was written for the Woodland Theater screen. Check number 1989 for 1945.41 was written to Colville sign for the city entrance signs. The signs will be done within a couple of days. Vice President Mrs. Monette-Beardall will organize volunteers to help hang the signs. 8 4×8 sheets of plywood will need to be donated and painted in President Mr. Teller’s garage so that the new signs will be sturdy. We will also need two gallons of dark green paint to ensure the wood is weatherproof. This will keep the signs beautiful for many years to come. Vice President Mrs. Monette-Beardall will work on the donation wood. Lorilee will call Colville Sign for an update as to when they will be completed.
We will not be doing away with the Grouch. The grouch is a wonderful tradition that we have all loved. But we would like the city signs to grow with us for the next 30 years. As we upgrade the town, the signs need to symbolize our growth and professionalism. The grouch signs will be moved. Chamber has proposed one to Northern Ales and one to Happy Dell Park with cutouts for tourist pictures. This will be decided on the next Chamber meeting. If you would like to weigh in on this decision, please attend our next meeting at noon on Dec 3rd at the visitors center.
