Mary Ann Wild provided the Treasurer’s Report.  See detail above.  A special thank you to Regina McCarty and Cari Jackson for coordinating the summer treats and birthday bags.  Trudy Walter volunteered to handle the birthday bag distribution on a temporary basis.

Discussed increased gas prices.  Steven Clark reported that he sent out an e-mail to clerical and service maintenance personnel exploring the possibility of carpooling.  He reported that five people have expressed interest.  However, the logistics involved with the interested parties was not conducive to the group carpooling.  Steven suggested chatting with Human Resources and sending the e-mail to all of the Professional Staff to solicit their interest.  The group also suggested approaching Faculty Senate for a discussion item among the group.  Steven Clark volunteered to head up discussions with Human Resources and Faculty Senate.  If we obtain more interested people, we could possible obtain a better location match and meet the need.

Discussed upcoming Staff Council elections.  Steven Clark reported that an e-mail has been issued today asking for nominations. Nominations will close on August 3, 2007.  Don’t forget to place your nominations!  Steven Clark wanted to let folks know that he will respectfully decline a nomination for another term as Staff Council President.

John Jarboe led a discussion regarding inviting Professional Staff to join Staff Council.  To date, no interest has been expressed; however, John was inquiring as to past history.

Trudy Walter suggested an agenda item for the next Staff Council meeting - revisit last year’s Christmas assistance to access current need.

Steven Clark suggested an agenda item for the next Staff Council meeting – awarding of Staff Council Fall Honorarium and Book Scholarships.

Steven Clark also suggested an agenda item for the next Staff Council meeting – Staff Council Spring Fundraiser.

Discussed the upcoming Ice Cream Social scheduled for Wednesday, August 22, 2007.  The event will be held from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the breezeway area outside of the Administrative Offices.  Catering and Conferencing will be providing 6 gallons of vanilla ice cream, 3 gallons of chocolate ice cream, crushed Oreo cookies, sprinkles, crushed Heath Bars, chocolate syrup, strawberry topping, butterscotch syrup, whipped cream, cherries, crushed nuts, napkins, spoons, bowls and ice water.  Projected cost is $125.00.  Volunteers are needed to work the event.  A sign-up sheet will be forthcoming.  Staff Council members are encouraged to bring a goodie to share with attendees.  A packaged goodie would be preferable.  Steven Clark volunteered to send out a reminder notice. 

Angie Clark volunteered to contact Dennis Simon regarding the possibility of obtaining a “free parking pass” which would be offered as a door prize at the above Ice Cream Social.

We will be assembling several sunshine baskets in the near future.  Trudy Walter has volunteered to collect items.  Please consider making a donation.  Possible donations:  crossword puzzle book, hand lotion, deck of cards, magazines, etc.  Thanks!
