Joe Long read the financial report with the following information:

     End Balance - $5,895.29

The 2011 budget report was passed out to those present, with one small correction: under (Income: the first 2 lines read 123 members; it should have read 122 members).


A motion to accept the financial report was made by Scott Teeters and seconded by Joe Ferrara.  All were in favor.


Commander Sulger then suspended the meeting for the purpose of initiating new members, James and Donald Holdridge.


There will be an Open House this Saturday, January 22nd, from 12:00 to 3:00pm.



The Appomattox Luncheon will be held on April 9th, 2011, at the Hilton on Adams Avenue.  Cost per person is $20.00.  Joe Long stated members of the Camp should support this function because we are the hosts.


The meeting and Open House for April was changed to the 14th for the meeting and the 16th for the Open House.  This is due to the fact that the following week is Holy Thursday and Saturday is Easter weekend.  A motion was made by Dale Keklock and seconded by Joe Ferrara.  All were in favor.


Commander Sulger then suspended the meeting and asked the Ladies to join us.  He then thanked them for the great job they did on the Christmas Party.


David Teeters will be taking a test in the city shortly and asked for permission to bring some of his fellow students to the Museum for a tour.  Permission was granted.


Scott Teeters reported on our agreement with the Everhart Museum to loan nine (9) articles to them for a six (6) month Exhibit on the Civil War.


Commander Sulger wants to get back to the idea of members talking about an ancestor or something about the Civil War and is calling it "Patriotic Instructions."

Ray Sulger suggested signs be made up to be put on the bookshelves asking visitors to ask for assistance before attempting to remove books from the cases, as some of the books are in poor condition.  This would avoid embarrassing the person after he or she has already removed the book.

With no further business, questions or discussion, a motion to adjourn was made by John Hart and seconded by Joe Long.  All were in favor.

Respectfully submitted,

Ray Sulger
