President Regenia Wells called the meeting to order at Gator Tales. Tom Crocker lead the invocation and Thad Paulk lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
A business meeting for the club was held to discuss the upcoming Bids for Kids Auction, February 27, 2010 in the facilities of Northside Baptist Church in Tifton.
Steve Fox has sent the new Donation Information Sheets out by email to club members. Emphasis was placed on everyone knowing their committee assignment and inusuring their prompt attention to the responsibilities of their assignment. Club members are requested to either take pictures of the businesses that donate or inform Thad Paulk of the donation so that pictures can be taken to use during the auction.
Donated items are requested to be of at least a $50 value. Items of less value will be combined into a "Grab Bag" and will receive less donor air time and will remain on the air for bids for a longer period of time noteing only the items included and not the donor. Location of the telephone bank table was discussed. Bid runners showed up in the picture when delivering bids during last year's event. There was agreement that the table is best located in the center in front of the stage and their was discussion of moving the center camera closer and higher to avoid the runners.
A "Kick-Off Luncheon" will be held on February 3, 2010 to promote the Bids for Kids Event. Invitations will be mailed to recipients of Bids for Kids funds asking that one or two persons from each organization be identified to attend the Kick-Off and participate in the production of the Bids for Kids Auction on February 27, 2010.
Attending this week's meeting: Bill Clements, Norman Glaze, Tom Conner, Tom Crocker, Regenia Wells, Steven Fox, Roger Hobbs, Phil Salter, Ann Grubbs, Stacey Beckham, Chris Beckham, Thad Paulk, Chuck Mailloux, J. Michael Moore, Wallace.

President Regenia Wells called the meeting to order at Gator Tales. Norman Glaze lead the invocation and Ann Grubbs lead the Pledge of Allegiance.
Wallace Bodkin presented a slide show of the construction of a Habitat for Humanity house by the Tift County High School shop class. The Tifton community has supported the construction of 11 Habitat houses in the Tift area. Residents are chosen from applications made for each new contruction. Most residents make payments of $300/mo and contribute about 300 hours of work equity during the construction of the house. Wallace offered buttons for sale as a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity fund raiser. The hope is to maintain enough funding to support the building of a house each year by the shop class. Lots have been given to the project by the City of Tifton from existing inventory and the construction of a house has brought about a new sense of community for the area surrounding the house.
Regenia announced that no Board of Directors Meeting would be held on Thursday due to a scheduling conflict. Bryan Truelove made the club aware of a National Exchange Club provided dishonesty policy which covers the Secretary and the Treasurer at $100,000 for $100 per year compared to our current policy which covers all officers at $25,000 for $114 per year. Wallace Bodkin moved to go with the National offered policy and Ann Grubbs seconded. The motion passed by voice vote. More than 680 chicken-que tickets have been distributed for next week's fund raiser.
Our Chicken-Que is set for October 30, 2009 at First United Methodist Church. Tickets are $7.00 per plate of one half chicken slaw, baked beans, bread, and dessert picked up at the church from 4 pm - 7 pm.
CASA PLAYHOUSE PLANS AND CONSTRUCTION
Construction of the CASA Playhouse was discussed with plans to work on it at Norman Glaze's shop on Saturday, October 24, 2009. CASA wants to display the house by November 1, 2009 for the auction at the end of the month.
Ann Grubbs won the "kitty" this week.
Bill Clements had 3 stints inserted during a visit to the hospital in Ocala. Ms. Betty says Sunday that he is home and doing well. We hope to see him on Wednesday at our meeting.

The purchaser gets from 15 to 35% discount on goods and a $5.00 discount with the card. Regenia will complete the paperwork and get it to Ann Grubbs for distribution to the club next Wednesday. .
