Thrive/Moran Steering Committee Meeting Minutes
The Moran Thrive-Pride Group met on July 14, 2010 at the Moran Senior
Center with the following people in attendance: Ann Houk, Warren Johnson,
Larry Manes, Deb Tynon, Jerry Ward, and Kathy Ward.
With such a small number in attendance, no major decisions were made
but several items and proposals were discussed.
Patty Boyd sent an update on Troxel Park plans and work. The City Crews
have been busy working on the park. They have installed a water faucet to
facilitate watering and begun working on the ground. Old soil, rock etc
was removed along the front of the park in preparation for new soil and a
concrete border. Patty provided a rough drawing of her plans for plants
and flowers. Final results may not be visible until next summer but work
towards beautification is happening. Our thanks to the City guys and Patty
for their work.
Discussion of what to do for a Community social or gathering included
an ice cream social with entertainment and visiting or something preceding
a football game. We need to check the school calendar for home game nights
and what others might have scheduled for those nights. We also discussed
whether Moran Day would be a good time to do this. A decision will be made
at the next meeting if we have enough supporting people.
Moran Day is September 18th. We need to check with Deb Jones,
chairperson on what events are scheduled, any fees for participation, and
then decide if our group wants to participate.
A fall community garage sale day was also discussed. The spring sale
was a huge success and many of the participants have asked if we are going
to do it again in the fall. A suggested day was October 9th. Deb Tynon
volunteered to check into this. Again help will be needed.
The Library Board suggested that a welcoming group for new residents or
families with new babies would be a good project for our group to
establish. Discussion as to what to include and how to fund it was held.
No decision was made at this time because we felt we needed more input
from the Library Board.
We also discussed how to regenerate enthusiasm for our Thrive-Pride
group. We hope the busy summer months have been the reason for the drop in
attendance at our meetings. We discussed ways to generate more interest
and participation in our group.
Our next meeting will be AUGUST 11th, 2010, 7:00 PM at the Moran Senior
Citizen building. Please try to attend.
