OLD BUSINESS:
Mary Apte requests to change the hosting Inside Leisure World to August instead of September because her topic is about the MCC Festival which occurs in October. She would like the shareholders be aware of the upcoming event and show it throughout September.

President Joseph said the Video Producer club had purchased 2 HP PC and 1 Apple computer and will need assistance to set up.

President, Joseph Valentinetti.-- business cards with Studio location & phone number are now available, so all members can use to identify and spread information about Video Producers Club. 

An administrator of the computer has been set up to keep track of its use and maintaining the computer. - - - Joseph Chavez for the PC
Paul Basset for the Apple & Mary Apte will be the back up.
Many Thanks to Bob Slater and Joseph V. for making a very good presentation to the recreation Dept. enabling us to keep our office and plus getting funding for the equipment. Pres. Joseph requests help in cleaning up and setting up to make office look “Busy”. We have been blessed to have our own permanent venue to use compared to other clubs. Members are reminded to sign in and out to show that this office is being used.
Members are requested to bring their own flash drives to save projects instead of saving it to the computer when finished. 

Joe Osuna put out an article in our local newspaper inviting people instead of discarding a VCR to donate it to our club. So far, Joseph Chavez has checked them out and found 7 good ones and only thrown away 5. Lynn Heath said she will ask the Y’s Service club to donate what they couldn’t sell on their rummage sales. We are hoping we could be able to have 10 good ones on hand.
