The first topic at hand was what to do about the Fourth of July activities. There were talks about a tractor pull as well as a lawn mower pull. The convention center would be where the square dancing would be held, but issues about space and bathroom availability became a problem. No official conclusion was made, but the issues seemed to be too much for the complex to handle.
The new field was mowed and watered and looks as good as everyone had hoped. Two new scoreboards were put up on the little league fields and discussions were held whether or not to move the high school scoreboard to center field. More than likely this move will be made. A final decision will be made at a later date. They are still waiting on the fencing for the new field and hope it will be up in the very near future.
Electric bills as long as other services were paid off at the expense of $1,551. A new sign at the cost of roughly $1,000 will be made and put up at the very front entrance in place of the old one as soon as the go-ahead is given to use their shared funds from the Ham Festival. They are also going to look into some sort of lighting source for the new sign, be it an over head light or a light coming from the ground, so that drivers coming from Princeton to easily see the entrance.
A motion was held and passed to purchase large vinyl baseball’s that will fit on the fences of all the baseball fields. The baseball’s will have advertising for the sponsors of the baseball teams. Each sponsor will have one baseball per each team they provide funds for. Johnson Control is currently the only sponsor with multiple teams, currently sponsoring three, and thus they will have more advertising.
Hopefully a kickball league will be up and running within the next few weeks. They will use the open fields on the designated nights to hold the kickball games.
