f) FDIC application for 2013 was submitted. A response should be given by August if the application was accepted or denied.
g) Towing of the smokehouse at no cost by Larry’s Towing is no longer possible for them. It was requested that we pay for the cost of fuel and he will continue to donate the manpower and his time to do so. It was suggested at the meeting that we solicit the schools that use the smokehouse to see if they are able to raise funds to help cover the costs. A letter will be drafted to send to the schools and their respective PTA’s.
