Jane announced that we have notice that PCSB Foundation gave us $1482.28 to cover printing the park brochure and our insurance this year. 

Mike Pollack who is with an events company that runs Blaze at Van Cortlandt Manor is seeking a venu to have a slightly different event but still with a pumpkin theme. The for profit company likes to benefit a non-profit. He looks for a venue that has adequate entrance and exit and minimal imposition with residential areas. Blaze has become so popular that he would like to offer an alternate that is a distance from Van Cortlandt Manor. He will give Jane more information so she can forward it to Linda Cooper for further discussion. 

Mark Kotkin asked that the descussion on reducing the number of meetings per year be postponed until more board members are present.
