Wes reported that he and Clare will shut off the water for the winter soon.

It was decided to again have Luke Dudenhofer for the Memorial Day Service. Nels Hansen will provide music.

It was suggested that possibly we could either pass a collection plate at the Memorial Day service or at least have a donation canister by the door to help with expenses.

The estate of Marguarite Thompson has donated $5,000.00 to the Association. Mary Ane made a motion to have Clare and Wes check out the cost of a new sound system for the Church and if it is reasonable to purchase and install. Clare supported. Motion carried.

Stu Carpenter and Krista Jensen are trying to organize a possible concert series at the Church leading up to the Danish Festival. They will try to get groups of musicians to volunteer and charge a small admission. It was also suggested that we contact the Festival office and see if they can include North Sidney Church in the tour associated with South Sidney during the Festival. Krista will check into this.
