*Repairs and Maintenance:
~ Elizabeth presented a slide show of the club house kitchen prior to the remodel that was completed December 2023.
Our last kitchen remodel was approximately 2013.
· There was an additional $2000.00 worth of repairs.
· A support beam was rotten and replaced, which was why the floor under the refrigerator was soft and sinking.
· Also, there was suspected mold near the water heater, but after further investigation no mold was found.
· It was found that rodents have been chewing the electrical wires that connect to the stove. Wiring was replaced.
~ All floors in the club house will need to be replaced due to failing support beams and extreme ware. The current main floor is bamboo. We will be looking to replace it with a harder wood option.
~ Annual fire inspection has been completed. One fire extinguisher will need serviced.
~ Cabinet locks will be installed on some kitchen cabinets for items that are for LSCC members use only. Cabinets will be labeled too.
~ Need to address door framing safety issue.
~ Ceilings will need to be replaced.
~ Janitorial closet will be cleaned out and organized so that renters can access the cleaning supplies needed.

~ Wednesday March 20th is our next general meeting.
~ March 31st is the Easter holiday. A community easter egg hunt might be scheduled for the weekend before.

The club house is not available that day, but the event could be scheduled for a different day. NEED SOMEONE TO LEAD THIS EVENT!! Anyone can lead and submit ideas to discuss at the March 20th meeting.

IF this is something the community would like to attend, we NEED SOMEONE TO LEAD THIS EVENT. Or we could have a BBQ potluck on a different day.
