GONDBA Meeting Minutes
September 28, 2011
Barry introduced Kevin Tibbs from Ronald McDonald House Charities. Kevin gave us information on the radiothon and open house scheduled for 9/29/11 and encouraged everyone to come down between 6am and 7pm to tour the house. The radiothon is sponsored by MIXX107.7 and McAfee Heating and Air is matching donations up to $10,000 during the radiothon. It was decided that GONDBA would make a $500 donation. Kevin also let us know that various local businesses were donating services for the radiothon and thanked everyone for their support.
Teresa Wendell presented information on Trunk or Treat happening at Kiser School and encouraged individuals and local businesses to get involved. They can contact Sarah Kunkle at the school for more information. There will also be a Haunted House put on at the school.
Barry announced that Kathy Rudolf has volunteered to be the new secretary for GONDBA and we are still looking for a vice president.
Barry said that Jerry Bowling could not attend todayís meeting, but wanted to report that Matt Joseph from the city of Dayton spoke at the last McCook Field NA.
Barry reported that Chris Mills was sent to the Secure Transitional Offender Program on 9/12/2011. The program requires the offenders to perform community service work and participate in drug intervention services. The program is 30 to 90 days residential - not permitted to leave unless with security guard performing free labor at non-profit organizations. The average length of stay in the program is 45 days, and then most offenders are placed on intensive supervision and aftercare.
It is the only program in Montgomery County that makes clients work to
participate in the program. The clients are responsible for all cleaning
and maintenance inside and outside the building, plus they have to give
back to the community. If they don't want to work - they are removed from
the program. It is a small 42 bed -male facility.
