a. M/S/P to send $6,000 to the District Rose Float Committee which in turn will be forwarded to Phoenix Decorating. The District will be encouraged to send payments more promptly to Phoenix

Action Items (New/Old Business):

d. Dues: There is no change in the amount of dues for the 2010-2011 year. New member fees are now prorated.

e. International Convention (Geneva): Would the Geneva Convention be a good opportunity to promote the Rose Float Project to a large European and world-wide community? The general consensus was that it is better to have KI promote the project. It was M/S/P to table the issue for now and visit it again at another meeting.

f. Medallion Program: Reid feels that at this time it would be better for the Medallion Program to stay with KIF. Reid has received letters of support from KIF members.

g. Grand Drawing: It was M/S/P to table a discussion on whether to change (lower) the number of tickets to be sold in 2010-2011 until Craig Wallace can work up the reduced outcome figures.

h. Rosemont Rose Float Club Meeting on December 30: It was M/S/P to table a discussion until the next meeting whether to change the on-site meeting to another time/day because of logistic problems.
