Meeting Recap for March 12, 2024

Our March meeting with Dr. Peter Robertson was very well attended and held in the larger meeting room that is so much nicer for our group. The huge TV made it possible for everyone to clearly see Dr. Robertson’s presentation and there was even a microphone and speaker setup so he could be heard over the sounds from the other rooms. It was a pleasure to see new faces and recognize some familiar faces from the past, who who came for their very first Stonewall meeting.

During normal business the club motioned and voted to approve a $250 sponsorship for “Democrats In Action”, an annual fundraiser for the Fresno County Democratic Women’s Club, being held this Saturday at 11:30 AM at the Manhattan. The sponsorship includes two tickets for the luncheon. Terry Stasio and Marsha Conant will represent the club at this event.

Club members tonight also voted to become a sponsor of the Fresno Rainbow Pride Parade & Festival at the $400 level. The sponsorship includes a spot in the parade, a booth at the festival, and an ad in the program. We’ll now need all of you to show up on June 1st to walk with us in the parade or ride on our float! We’ll also need a couple volunteers to run our club’s Information & Voter Registration booth at the festival afterward (we will soon have a sign up sheet for this).

SPECIAL ELECTION ANNOUCEMENT (28 day advance notice per our bylaws): Myra Coble has volunteered and been nominated for the currently open position of Treasurer. Next month, at our April 9th meeting, members will vote to elect her officially in that position.

THANK YOU Dr. Peter Robertson for your wonderful presentation on “Fostering Authentic and Sincere LGBTQ+ Allyship”. It was so nice for members to learn about your life, your accomplishments, and what motivated you to follow the path you’re on.

AND THANK YOU Joseph Bascetta for the cake! What an unexpected treat that was! Yum.

Thanks again for all that attended the meeting tonight. It was great to see those of you who return every month, and it was really wonderful to see so many new faces coming to their first meeting. We hope to see you all again at our next meeting in April, if not before. :)
