Masemann Residence

 

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

Regrets: S. Burk, D. Chadwick, D. Fuller, S. Munro

 

1. Minutes of 4 June meeting

Acceptance of the Minutes of the 4 June meeting moved by Bob, seconded by Rod.  Accepted.

 

2. Matters arising from the Minutes

All matters arising from the Minutes were dealt with later in the meeting.

 

3. Announcements

Vandra noted that Malvern would be closed as of Friday 11 July and would re-open two weeks before Labour Day on August 18.

Volker noted that Malvern neighbor Fran Perkins would water the gardens when she got back from her holidays, and if there was a prolonged drought, he would do so in the meanwhile.

 

4. President’s Report – Vandra Masemann

Vandra noted that in response to requests from the alumni/ae, we are in the process of scanning Muses to post on the Internet.  Since the 50s, 60s, and 70s decades received the most requests, the team is starting with them and will include what has been considered the best ever, the 1946 edition.

The TDSB has dictated that the school must get explicit consent under the new anti-spam legislation to send out requests that involve money, including any from the MRBS and parent mailing lists.  We will send out a request to everyone on our list to create a new one made up of only those who have explicitly agreed.  Since only 48% of those members of MTBS actually open the email copy of the Musings, we need first of all to get respondents’ attention.  It was decided to use the following as the subject line:  Urgent! MRBS needs your consent.  Those who do not respond will automatically lose their membership by the time of the next emailing in September. The mailing will include the required consent for the OMF, which will be asked to share costs.  Moved by Vandra, seconded by Volker that the OMF be offered the shared mailing cost possibility.  Carried.
