We requested Alder Stream and Carrabassett Trail from the Penobscott Nation, we would like to transfer the Carrabassett trail to the new Carrabassett Club.  Motion made and carried to help the Carrabassett Club pay for the Carriage trail this year so that their club can pick up the mileage.  Dick and Don will go with Neil and John to the meeting in Old Town to help them with the process.

3.) Vice Presidents Report:  Sandi Isgro

  • We have had requests for extra large and small sizes of our vests.  Should we order more?  Motion made and carried to order a dozen vests and a dozen hooded sweatshirts.

There is an opening at the Eclectic Treasures for $10.00 a week.  Members can drop off items such as furniture, tools, dishes, pots, pans, handbags, crafts etc.. to the White Wolf anytime.  We will get it to Eclectic Treasures.  This is a great way to help the club and clean out our basements.  Motion made and carried to try it out.
