MAHWAH RECREATION COMMITTEE
The meeting was called to order at 7:40 pm by Chairman Ward Donigian.
Roll call was taken and members in attendance were: Chairman Ward Donigian, Terry Mostyn, Julia Smith, and Harry Williams. Also in attendance was Dawn DaPuzzo, Recreation Director.
The flag salute was followed by the Sunshine Law announcement. On a motion by Harry Williams, seconded by Terry Mostyn, the meeting minutes of November 15, 2006 were approved. All in favor, motion carried.
There was no public in attendance.
Tree lighting – the tree lighting ceremony went very well. Discussed working out the time schedule for next year, perhaps by having the choir starting at 4:45 and the arrival of Santa and lighting the tree at 5:00. Discussed the problem with the doughnuts – maybe we should get packaged cookies next year. We definitely need the Saturday before to set up, with the DPW opening the building, and re-locking the building afterward. We had a great turnout with close to 300 people attending. The kids had fun and the Mayor stated that it was a great event. Thanks to Terry and everyone that helped. The Secretary will send out thank you letters to the Laura Kandoth and the Volunteer Club, Irene Lahr and the choir, and the Fire Department.
· The Baseball Parade is the next scheduled event.
· Meet the Bunny is scheduled for March 31, at 1:00.
· 2007 Budget – everything seems to be okay.
· Answering machine – Ward will meet with Jean to change the old messages on the answering machine.
The Seniors will have their luncheon on Thursday at the Senior Center – a member of the Mahwah Municipal Alliance will be speaking. There will be a large turnout - the room’s capacity is 225, and there are more on a waiting list.
