Up Coming Programs:  Rick brought up having a Period Christmas Party in December. 

Tom Paul announced that Frank Potts (persona – Capt. M) is getting married in April of 2013 and wants to have a civil war wedding.  He is hoping the Rosecrans’ Unit will support by their presence.

Standing Committees: 

A.    Ladies Aide Society:  no report other than supporting the Barn Yard Sale.

B.     Fundraising-no report

C.     Education Committee-no report

D.    Living History Committee-Discussion regarding the upcoming event at Harlem and Hale Farm.  A sign up sheet was circulated for Harlem.  It was noted that members had not paid dues and therefore should not participate under the umbrella of the Rosecrans’ Unit until they had brought dues current.

a.       Monte was approached to put on a dinner theatre for a reunion group.  The group discussed charging the same price and using the same caterer as the usual dinner theatres.  This does not need to go before the fund raising committee as it is an event we have done in the past and we know it is profitable.  Val to check on availability of the Inn. Profit is to benefit statue fund.

E.     Rosecrans’ Memorial-An update on the moving of the Rock was given.  Scott Wagner of First Impressions agreed to install the engraved bricks at no charge.  He will begin installing on Saturday, August 4th and continue as time permits.  The invoice for the engraving of the bricks was given to Henry. (It had been given to Bill the day before the meeting.)

a.       The Barn Yard Sale (9/14 & 9/15) was presented to the group for a vote and it was approved unanimously by those voting.  All profits to benefit the statue fund.

Rick presented the 2012 Proposed Bylaw Changes (which had been tabled from the last meeting).  Discussion followed regarding the continued association with the BWAHS.  Eventually a motion was made by Sue C. to adopt the Bylaws as changed and seconded by Dana.  The motion passed with a vote of 6 in favor, 2 abstaining, one member leaving and two members not voting.

The next meeting of the Rosecrans’ Unit is scheduled for August 30th at 7 p.m. at the Myers Inn.

                                                                        Respectfully Submitted,
