Minutes:  Jan welcomed all present and the minutes of the previous meeting were read by Heather.  Sally moved and Ros seconded that the minutes be accepted as read.

Business arising from the minutes:  Jan is to meet a representative from the Apprenticeship Company Painters at the cottage at 10am on Thursday.  They need to ascertain how long it would take to paint the cottage and how many people would it entail.  Meals and accommodation can be arranged at the Middle Pub -  $30 single and $40 double per night.  There is sufficient brown paint on hand to complete the job.  We have to supply paint brushes. 

No reply has been received from Ed Hoffman re. the removal of the oven. 

QGC Grant – The form was ready to be submitted on the due date but the Council had mislaid our plans to remove and relocate the old school so we did not have the necessary approval for the project.  We were unable to lodge the application form.  Heather is to approach Maree to see what other grants are presently available. 

Cottage sign – Barbara Rathmell advised Jan that the sign needs to be redone.  A professional signwriter is to redo the sign.  33 Dalby Street will be printed on the sign. 

Willow trees are still to be planted and the window is still to be fixed.  

The Powerlink Cheque Presentation and Afternoon Tea at the Cottage went well.  An account for $231 ($7.70 a head) was presented to Powerlink.  Special thanks to Jan for her contribution in making the occasion such a success. 

Ros submitted an excellent report to the magazine. 

Correspondence:  Heather moved and Sally seconded that the inwards be received and the outwards endorsed.  Inwards – Powerlink Invitation, Jandowae Ambulance Committee & Kindergarten re. Quiz Night, Taralga re. letter of support, Violy re. the painters.  Outwards – Steffi Abbott (thank you for entering Show Princess Competition), Email and a copy of the minutes to Ed. Hoffman’s Secretary.

Treasurer’s Report:  Ruth received the Bank Statement for the Business Group.  This matter is to be resolved as we should not be receiving it and the Statement is to be passed on to the Business Group.                                                                                                                                                                            Ruth presented her report and the Cr. balance is $10,480.33 which includes the deposit of $5000 from Powerlink and 15 memberships.

Sally is to represent our Association at the Timber Town Meeting on the 24th April.  We agree to host the Church Service at the cottage but we will not provide refreshments.
