New Location for Meetings
ATTENTION! WE HAVE A NEW LOCATION FOR OUR WEEKLY MEETINGS
Starting January 5, 2011 we will be meeting at the Hy Vee grocery store “Club Room” on Waterfront Drive. Our meeting format will change slightly so please read this entire message so you will understand the new format. With our new location we will have our choice of any food item that is being served by the Hy Vee cafeteria located on the west side of the store. When you arrive you will be given a token or ticket along with a carryout container & tray to fill with any and as much food as you want. You can also get a soft drink if you like. Coffee, milk, water, eating utensils and napkins will be available in the meeting room. Once you have filled your tray you will proceed to the back of the store then turn left and go all the way to the southeast corner of the store where the meeting room is located. There you will be able to pick up your name badge, pay for your lunch and purchase your raffle tickets. Those who have mobility difficulty can use one of the motorized shopping carts.
Since everything will be new for a while, we suggest that each of you try to arrive 10 to 15 minutes early so that we can adjust to our new venue, while still allowing for our meeting to start and end on time. It is not clear yet if you will turn in your token/ticket at the cafeteria or in the meeting room. We plan to have that detail worked out before our next meeting and will give you that information when you receive your token/ticket.
The price of the meal was set by the Board at $12.00. As you may or may not have known, we were losing money at our last three locations because we had to guarantee a minimum numbers of meals at each location. Since we fell short of the minimum attendance most weeks we were paying out more than we were taking in. Over the last two years we had losses of just over $4000.00. The $12.0 meals cost will help us recover some of those losses. We feel a need to recover these losses since this is the source of funds that are important to our future. The Board will continue to review our meals cost over the next six to twelve months and if appropriate may be able to lower the costs for our meals.
I want to assure everyone that these losses have nothing to do with any money that was raise by our fund raising projects. This account is primarily supported by dues and pays for our operating expenses.
I hope that this new location can work out better and that many more of you will be able to attend our weekly meetings.
