Call to Order: The meeting was called to order at 9:50 a.m. by President Reid Allen.

Lt. Governor’s Official Visit to Board: Lt. Governor Steve Golden spoke regarding the Governor’s Official Visit scheduled for December 8, 2007. The Governor, Oscar Knight, wants to participate in a service project during his official visits. Since he is visiting during the Rose Float decorating month, Steve would like Oscar to assist with the decorating and observe and speak with the sponsored youth participants in work groups while they are decorating. Oscar will be asked to arrive at 8:00 a.m. and work until 12:00 noon (four-hour shift) along with any volunteers from Division 10. He will then proceed to the Holly Street Bar & Grill in Old Town Pasadena for a 1:00 p.m. reception and luncheon to be held in his honor by Kiwanis members in Division 10. The Rose Float Club Board approved this agenda.

Approval of Minutes: The minutes were approved as corrected.

Treasurer's Report: Treasurer Craig Wallace announced that the club has 53 paid members as of 9/30/07 for the 2007-2008 year. As of the same date there were 62 Grand Drawing tickets sold out of a total of 200 tickets available for the spring drawing. Seventy-five tickets sold will be the break even number. Board members were encouraged to continue selling the Grand Drawing tickets in their respective divisions. The income and expenses column showed that the club finished the year with a $1,318.44 net loss and the club foundation had a $1,034.71 net loss. It was M/S/P to approve the Treasurer’s Report as presented.

Board Action: Based on the amount in the bank, it was M/S/P to send $1,000 to the committee toward the cost of the 2008 Rose Float.

Drawing for Raffle (Rose Float Parking, Luncheon, Parade Seats and Rose Bowl Game): It will be at 9:00 a.m. at the Rose Float Club meeting on December 1 at the Rosemont Pavilion.

Next club meeting: The October 13 club meeting will be at Denny’s in Temple City at 9:00 a.m. The Gala Fundraising Steering Committee will then meet at 10:00 a.m. at the same site.

November 10th Simi Valley Interclub Meeting: Photo Day for the Rose Float is the same day and time. It was decided by the Board that Dave Wallach will handle Photo Day with some of the riders. The rest of the club will attend the Simi Valley Interclub. Lynn Seeden, Cal-Nev-Ha Magazine Editor, was suggested as a speaker for the event. President Allen will contact her for availability.

Kiwanis Directors and Officers (D&O) Insurance Policy: This insurance is offered by Kiwanis International through the Hyland Insurance Group. There was a discussion on the reasons the D & O’s should have this coverage. Last year Reid Allen purchased this insurance out of his own pocket for the Board. The cost was pro-rated because it wasn’t purchased at the beginning of the year. The Board voted to renew the insurance for this year at a cost of $515.83. They chose to exclude the Crime Insurance which is an option.

Board and Officer Pins: Pins were handed out to those who missed receiving them at the club installation. A special honor was given to Dave Wallach for his many contributions to the club and the committee. He was upgraded to a Diamond Level Dunlap. Congratulations Dave! It was well deserved.

Meeting Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 11:05 a.m.
