• Earl stated that the November 2nd date was approved by the board.
• A discussion followed regarding having food or just goodies.
• Most of the committee felt that it was better not to have food anymore and to concentrate more on introducing everyone to the opportunities within the RWA and other organizations.
• The Open House will be at the new Building
• Linda asked the question about what was permitted, allowed under the agreement with the Golf Partners.
• The agreement allows us to provide anything that we did in the old building, which means, coffee, tea, cookies and cakes, soda and water.
• Linda will proceed with making the arrangements.

• Andy stated that they are working on policy & procedures
• Andy explained to the committee that they are an advisory committee to the board.
• They will be having a program on Florida Wildlife at 7:00 pm on 10/18/17
• A question came up about how the Activities Committee is going to communicate events to all.
• Facebook may be one of the most effective means, but not all subscribe.
• We could put a link on the RWA Website that Andy could post activities.
• Of course, the Calendar is already on the Website.
• Andy, Don and Claudette and Scott will get together to discuss.
• Another idea was to have a sub-committee on communications.
• A motion was made to have a plaque made for all the Volunteer of the Year honorees
• A motion was also made to have the new building called Rotonda West Community Center.
• These two motions plus the suggestion of the sub-committee for communications will be brought to the board.

The meeting adjourned at 3:25 and Sue Killion brought in to die for chocolate cookies. The next meeting will be held on September 6th, 2017 2:00pm, at the new Community Meeting Building.
