General Assembly 2013

In the Old Town Hall, Jan 27, 2013, around 7 PM, after an hour of chatting in the lobby the 25 DCP members present walked in the theatre for the formal part of the General Assembly.

 

Welcome

Sue Steele, DCP President, offered her welcome to all the members and asked the Secretary to lead the meeting.

 

Past Year

The Secretary reviewed briefly DCP’s 2012 activities and asked the committees to report.

 

Treasurer

Aaron Dellah, DCP Treasurer, signaled a variation in the way the tickets invested in the Patron’s program would be reported and updated the 2012 productions’ bottom line.  He presented the financial situation in DCP and a list of the expenses over $100 for the 2012 period.  Aaron also presented the list of suggestions for improvement in the Old Town Hall that had been voted on at last year’s general assembly, and their progress to date.

 

Logistics

The Wardrobe mistresses requested 4 volunteers to support an inventory blitz on Feb 2nd.  They got a full crew of volunteers after a few minutes of discussion.  As Denise Lafortune and Deborah Patenaude have been taking care of the inventory for the past 5 years they both requested to step down from this role so that new volunteers pick up where they left.  The group thanked them profusely for the extensive work they have done over that period.  Suzanne Steele and Maggie Badior volunteered to become the next wardrobe mistresses.

Caroline Roberts and Alvin Runnalls reported on a very successful year for this program.
