Old Business:
Financial Report - JoAnn not present. Marlys shared a report she received from PAC showing our Arrowhead Council income and disbursements from 1-1-2013 through 9-30-2013. A one-page report showed a balance in our account of $1965.96. We discussed both reports.
Retirees Report – The October 16, 2013 luncheon was cancelled due to illness of our chef. Our next luncheon is Nov. 20, 2013 and we decided to stick with spaghetti.
Charitable Report - Char reported that 20 bears were donated to St Luke’s and 24 bears to Life Care Center. 18 head wraps were donated in October. We had no report on how many books had been delivered to our Big Red Book Shelf. Marlys will contact Terri Newman to get the number of books delivered. Char took books and cell phones with her today. The books will go to United Way and phones to the organization that takes the phones.
Chapter Report - none
Other - nothing brought up
New Business:
Motion by Char with a second by Bill to have JoAnn Cooper, our Treasurer, request an itemized list from PAC of the monetary donations our Council made from 1-1-13 to 9-30-13 in the amount of $4617.84. Motion passed.
Nancy had a written report of monetary donations our Council made for 2013, as of August, and it added up to $2150.00. (These are direct gifts from our treasury.)
Discussed fundraising - it would be very difficult to plan and organize any activities and events with just 4-6 of us. This would require folks who are still working to assist us and we felt that support is not really there. No actual plans were made.
Motion by Bill with a second by Char to have our Arrowhead Council meetings quarterly. 2014 meetings would be January, April, July and October, third Wednesday of each month at 1:00 p.m. If necessary special meetings will be called via email or phone calls. Motion passed.

Our November 2013 meeting is cancelled. We had not planned one for December as it falls on Christmas Day. Our next Arrowhead Council meeting will be January 22, 2014, 1:00 p.m., Melrose Building.

Motion by Bill with a second by Char we adjourn. Motion passed. We adjourned at 2:00 p.m.

Minutes taken by Marlys on behalf of Nancy.
