GONDBA Meeting Minutes
August 27, 2008
Networking began at 11:30 AM with lunch supplied by Champion Auto Service. Thank you.
Barry Hall, President called the meeting to order called upon Amber Rose (Kroc Community Center/Kiser School). Amber said they had over 800 people attend the community picnic and had lots of support from members of GONDBA. School is back in session. Kiser School will be sponsoring the “Trunk or Treat” again this year. Anyone interested in participating can see Amber. The Kroc Center has started construction and has an estimated opening date of Spring 2010.
Jerry Ardnts updated us on the new GONDBA web site. He has updated the Community Awareness Program section with our “Most Wanted” and their stats. In the previous month we had 100 hits to the site. The average length of time to the site was 2-1/2 minutes. Fifty two percent were new visitors to the site and most were viewing the meeting minutes (which means I need to get them out in a more timely manner). He added pictures from the community picnic and will be adding e-mail addresses of members in the future. We still have 5 sponsors to the web site. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, see Barry Hall.
Max from Champion Auto Parts will be doing the Charity Car Program which gives cars to victims of domestic violence. They could have 25 cars this year.
Sgt. McCune informed us that crime is down in all categories. Theft of motor vehicle parts is going up. Catalytic converters are being stolen from cars in a matter of minutes. Chris Mills is in prison, Darryle Hughes is in jail with a $25,000 bond.
Barry Hall said he had invited Judge Wiseman and Judge McGee to our next meeting but had had no response as of yet.
We then did our introductions.
Our first speaker was Margaret “Peggy” Quinn, candidate for Montgomery County Common Pleas Court Judge. She gave us some of her background as an Assistant U.S. Attorney and as an Air Force Trail Attorney. After she spoke, Dennis Adkins, also candidate for Montgomery County Common Pleas Court Judge gave us a little of his background. He had been a police officer, had a law practice and had been a judge in Kettering. Both answered questions from members.
Next meeting will be September 24th.DON’T FORGET TO SUPPORT OUR LOCAL BUSINESSES!
