Old Business: LEDs: Meet after this meeting if you would like to discuss LED displays; if not, then next week. Forestry Dept: The forestry department would like to show “Flock of Dodos”, but will be getting the licensing through a different company. They will only rely on us for projecting, and they agreed to the fee.  They are looking at March 7th or another mid-week showing. March 22nd/23rd, 27th/28th? Later in March might be better for us.  They will e-mail us after their committee meeting.


New Business: Movie Time Phone Line: An answering machine that we could record the movie and times might be nice.  Mark talked to Telcom and there is a fee involved; it may be simpler to just buy an answering machine. Motion to purchase a phone/answering machine combo for $100 or less if one can be found passed (23:2). Voting: Motion to vote on 3 criterion movies and 2 swank movies was passed.
