FINANCIALS: Darryl presented the financials which showed a checking balance of $15,504.12 with no debits outstanding. A total of $11,110.81 stands in the scholarship fund. Micki and Darryl are planning to move that fund from United American Bank to another bank.

BOOT CAMP: Here’s the text of the email Micki sent out after the meeting regarding the Oct. 21 high school journalism boot camp, summarizing the decisions made at the board meeting:

BOARD OPENING: Laura Dudnick of Patch.com (San Mateo and Belmont) was nominated to fill the board position created by Jamie White’s move to Boston. She was elected to that position. Micki Carter also announced that she will not be continuing on the board when her term concludes this year.

SAN MATEO TIMES WAKE: Micki announced that a “wake” is planned for Nov. 1 (at a place still to be determined) to honor the end of the nameplate and the destruction of the Amphlett Boulevard building of the old San Mateo Times.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:50 p.m.

Respectfully submitted, Micki Carter, Secretary
