Treasurer's Report: M/S/P for acceptance as presented.

A discussion followed on whether the Rose Float payments from the Committee and the Club to the District should be consolidated and to whom they should be sent to at the District. The process, as it now stands, is unwieldy and cumbersome and the data received is unclear. Bob Erikson suggested that this a good time to evaluate the process because of KI's increasing presence into the Rose Float project. It was suggested that Margo Dutton direct the process for a possible change. This issue was deferred for further discussion to the next Rose Float Committee meeting to give Margo and Craig Wallace a chance to confer with Pete Horton at the upcoming Foundation Board meeting.
