1.       The meeting was called to order at 7:00pm by the chair, Doug O’Leary.


*A presentation opened the monthly meeting on behalf of the Sussex Swordfish Swim Team.

Motion 08-29-18-342-29-80 Carried



4.       The manager’s report opened with a discussion of the Swordfish presentation and information shared.


In light of what we feel has been a success thus far of the swim team, the board reached an informal consensus that we would not change the practice schedule this year. However, there was some discussion that Alex could approach the team (at his discretion) in regards to two evenings over the entire practice season that could possibly be family oriented and could involve the swim team in a productive manner.

Shelley made a motion that all the Swordfish members would be required to purchase a monthly membership to the Civic Centre at the subsidized cost (LEAP) of $10 per month.

This motion was seconded by Blair.

                                                                                                                                Motion 08-29-18-343-29-80 Carried


Alex presented the information from his manager’s report. One event is on September 20th which is a Mental Health Awareness Social (Dessert and entertainment). This event is $25 and will be held at All Seasons.

Blair made a motion that Dan be appointed as our Treasurer of the board and this was seconded by Shelley.
