Treasurers’ Report: $2313.97 was paid for apportionments & new refrigerator. We are solvent.

Trustees’ Report: By motion and vote Jimmy Neugebauer was hired to replace the frame and support system for the stained glass window at a cost of $1250 labor and we buy the materials ($300--$350). We will get composite material instead of wood and treated wood for the support with a ¼” Lexan cover outside the window for weather and damage protection.

There was discussion about hiring Jimmy to fix the old bathrooms after the window project.

Crossfire District Conference was a big success.

Indiahoma School Robotics Team is going to National Competition in December. Each of the 9 students need $75 to attend. The school is looking for sponsors. We voted to sponsor two students if they did not find other sponsorship. 

Wednesday, December 16 is the date set for Christmas Caroling. 

Matt Roberts offered to cut down the dead mesquite tree in the parking lot and use it for firewood. 

After discussion, a motion and a vote, Matt will cut down the tree, leaving us a slice to use to determine the tree’s age and for an historical display.
