Other Agenda Items

Vaccination requirements – will follow TSS’s policy which will not enforce anything since CDC rules are vague, it is basically honor system with hope that those that should wear masks will do so

E-blast advertisements – Kerstin Fox Travel will pay $10 each time an ad is sent out, may be one or two in some months

Service Bridges – has done many donations, decided that instead of gratis membership, better to recognize their support with logos, comments, etc., there’s no policy on complimentary memberships considering it’s only $18.00

Gala planning – Hotels and AirBnB impossible to book for that weekend due to high season, high prices, and high bookings already, will still do sponsors with fewer tables, will still have a charter bus, there’s plenty of self-parking spaces

Brochures – put a sticker over the Gala information or throw out and do digital only?

Outreach – will wait until fall to contact various Jewish organizations since many are still working from home

Caring Committee – requested $100.00 to buy gifts, hot meals and other things to help those in need, need clarification on their roles and fiscal oversight

MOTION 1 - Caring Committee be allocated $1,000.00 per year to cover relevant expenses. (JC/MG) PASSED

Education – Ways to use the foundation money – include 30 minutes of educational topics to all social events, host more cooking classes, Jewish films, need a committee to focus on this
