Message: Rangers it is with much sadness that I report that Ranger Janos Schalavin is in the hospital in critical condition. I spoke with his daughter and she informed me things are not going well. Please keep him in your Prayers. If you would like to send him a card email me and I will give you the address. RLTW

Message: Hello Rangers, this is a follow up on the minutes I posted on 08/19/14. J. D. reports that we still haven't learned on whether or not we will get to be a voting member for additions to the RHOF. We could have a decision by the September meeting. Futher, we will have to vote to admend our by-laws with the change in the amount awarded to our scholarship winners. We will have to continue to find ways to fund our activities in addition to the scholarships. Some of our members have supported the association in the past with donations, but more will have to step up now if we are to continue the other activities we engage in.RLTW.

Message:

..."The tabled motion on increasing the scholarship award was revisited. Much dissusion finally produced an amended motion to increase the 2 scholarships to $1,000, provided the USMRA has the funds"...

...to insure availability of $2,000.00 in scholarship funding, please realize how rare it is that we have ever had that much money in our overall balance, and i assure the USMRA that i will not dispense funds prematurely for anyone...

...just so you know i depend heavily on that part, "provided the USMRA has the funds"...

...i say before awarding scholarship announcements, conferring amongst ourselves might help a bit later...

...RLTW...

Mark (pennypinching) Treasurer

Message: After missising several key officers from the July meeting, the USMRA monthly meeting was convened by President Hawk on 7 August at 1905hrs. Another wonderful invocation was delivered to the 23 Rangers assembled. The meeting progressed with discussion on whether or not the July meeting was legal under the Association bylaws, since only one elected officer was present. Those members assembled voted to accept the Secretary's reading of the July meeting. Reports were presented and accepted from the Treasurer for the July and August meeting. A healthy report was presented including coins sales, and was accepted by the membership. The tabled motion on increasing the scholarship award was revisited. Much dissusion finally produced an amended motion to increase the 2 scholarships to $1,000, provided the USMRA has the funds. Discussion followed on how to raise funds were explored, with no final solution offered. The meeting adjourned at 1953hrs.
