TREASURER’S REPORT FOR MAY was read by Kim. Copy attached. A motion was made by Pam to have this report accepted as read. Gwen seconded the motion and it was passed.

MUDCAT PARADE was discussed by Pam Blanchard. A special thank you was given to Don Davis for all his help plus all the other people who helped to decorate the float on Friday and walked in the parade. Thanks to Judy for the use of the flowers and a big thank you to Pam for a job well done. Our float with antique Cockshutt tractor and old wagon was great.

THE DOWNTOWN FOUNTAIN is up and running. Seeing soap suds is very disappointing as this affects the mechanism of the fountain and will lead to needed repairs.

THE FLOWER BEDS are all in and look wonderful. Thanks to Annette Dodge for a great job painting up our signs for the beds and to Don Davis for providing mulch. And thanks to all who helped in the planting and maintaining:

West Sign: Jan Loots, Ian Steel
