  1. Finances: Trust Account Beginning Balance by Marie Banuelos


  1. Dues for 2019-2020 of $150.00 will be due no later than September 15, 2019.  If dues are not paid by then, the member will be removed from our roster.  No Honorary Memberships will be available after this year.  Remember, you save about $100.00 a month by joining our club over other clubs.  We do not have fines or meals to pay. That is a savings of $1,200.00 a year.  $150.00 a year is a very low dues fee.Make payments to Central Valley Kings Foundation for a Tax Deduction.Or you may go to our website at cvkfoundation.com to pay by PayPal.


  1. Concession Report:  Attendance was down because of weather but we did very well.  Our club received $750.00 for our Trust account for our work.


  1. Relay for Life: Invitations have been sent to members to join our team for Relay for Life.  The event is June 22, 2019. 


  1. Signature Event:  We are searching for our club’s Signature Event.  This is an event we put on every year and get know for it.  Looking at the calendar in Santa Maria, it looks like September is a prime time.  If you do not live close to here, we can discuss and different kind of event that can match your location.  Need your wild and wonderful ideas!


  1. Community Service: Each member is to do community once a month of their own. Decide on a simple act of kindness or service you can perform in your community.  Describe the service in a report and add photos if appropriate.  Send to Marie when finished to get credit for service.  Any community service that you do needs to be reported to Marie with photos if possible. Giving food to food banks, clothes to shelters, helping by donating time to church, schools, hospitals to help in the smallest of ways make a big difference. You make a huge difference with your smallest acts off generosity of time. Make sure every month you have at least 8 hours of community service and you report it to Marie.


  1. Recruiting New Members:  It is each member’s responsibility to recruit one new member.  This is especially important for members that live in areas separate from other members.  Recruit a buddy that you can have fun doing things with. Community service does not have to a big project.


  1. Central Valley Kings Foundation has allowed our members to use the Foundation to sponsor fundraising efforts for good causes (as determined by the Foundation) so they can receive tax-deductible donations.  From this point on, to receive the opportunity to get the Foundation’s assistance and sponsorship, the member asking must be attending regular meetings and contributing to the club by participating in projects designed for members convenience.
