Meeting Minutes 12 Dec. 13

Malvern Red & Black Society

Executive Committee

8:00 p.m., 12 December 2013

Harbour Club, York Quay, Toronto

 

Present:  A. Ashby (Chair), D. Fuller, D. Halliday, I. Hubel, Vandra Masemann, Volker Masemann, S. Munro, R. Tennyson, R. Watson

Regrets: S. Burk, D. Chadwick

Guests:  E. Butchers, D. Sharpe

 

1. Minutes of October meeting

Acceptance of the Minutes of October 2012 moved by Adele, seconded by Volker.  Accepted.

 

2. Matters arising from the Minutes

Vandra raised the issue of the community hotline phone shared by MRBS and the swim club.  We do not receive many calls on it.  Principal Sharpe said that she would check into it.  It may be that there will be no savings to be had as a result of cancelling it. [If it serves a good use, then the MRBS is happy to have it continue.]

There was a discussion on the subject of our database and the suggestions for automatic updating  that came from Tim Daciuk.  It was decided that options one and two are not suitable.  We will continue to look into option three. Vandra proposed a motion to that effect, seconded by David.  Passed.

 

3. Announcements

Principal Sharpe noted that a music student has proposed that since Glenn Gould went to Malvern that the auditorium be named in his honour.  The Glenn Gould Foundation is supporting the proposal.  The auditorium would be rededicated and a plaque with the new name and pictures of the pianist would be posted in recognition of Malvern’s continuing excellence in the field of music.  Moved by Vandra, seconded by Adele that Vandra write a letter on behalf of the MRBS supporting the proposal. [Since this meeting, there has been some other discussion if he is the right person to have this honour. It has been suggested that George McRae is a more fitting person. We need to talk further about this item. I think the student should be restrained from proceeding with the Glenn Gould Foundation until a decision is made. When I think about it, it is a decision that needs to be made by all the school constituencies, not only the MRBS. It is unfortunate that the student contacted an outside agency before the decision was made. Your views are welcome. Ed. Note.] Continue Reading →

Adele also reminded all those present that the deadline for the submission of AGM documents is 15 October.

Adele noted that she had received a question from Bob about continuing the use of our phone line. Is it worth it?  After some discussion, it was decided that we should continue, especially if another reunion is planned. [Vandra had spoken about this to the Principal. It may be that the school has another use for it. But it also depends on the Balmy Beach Swim Club’s response. Vandra will follow up on this.] Continue Reading →
