IRISH CULTURAL SOCIETY MEETING - April 14, 2002

The minutes and treasurer's report were read and
approved. The balance in our checking account is
$13,996.09. The Noel Henry dance was the most
profitable to date. 760 tickets were sold. Bob (Slattery)
itemized the expenses for Irish Heritage Day. The total
net cost was $510. The person running the food booth
paid $30 and was allowed to keep whatever profit
came from it, which was a good solution. There was
some discussion of new sites for next year's Irish
Heritage Day. President Kelley asked us to please
take suggestions and recommendations to Maura for
the next board's meeting. Two other concerns were
noted for discussion by the board: Nora's thought
about doubling the donation to St. Patrick's Church,
and Al's suggestion that the social chairman's duties
be separate from Irish Heritage Day and the dance,
which should have committees of 'their own. Shirley
Hynes made a plea that we look ahead to next year
and form a volunteer team to plan and execute
decorations for the dance. Sister Carmel thanked
those who made it such a success. Membership
chairman Kay Delaney said that bulk mail is taking
a week to deliver because of extra security measures.
A clear scholarship winner has been chosen and will
be invited to the June meeting. John Donellan,
Tom Sweeney, and Joan Moody were selected for
the nominating committee. After a short refreshment
break, our member Mary Jo Quinn gave a presentation
on life in a foriegn mission.
