Death announcement - Deborah Slaughter spouse
« Reply #1 on: May 17, 2018, 02:03:19 PM »
Hello members,

I regret to inform you that Deborah Slaughter's husband has passed away recently (the day of our last monthly meeting). For those of you who do not know Deborah is one of our board members who volunteered and was elected at our last election to run and serve our group in this capacity. She is asking for some assistance in this time of need both financial and labor wise.

At our next meeting we will have details about a work party at her home and we can get it scheduled ASAP.

Regarding the request for financial assistance, in the past O.N.E. as a group, has taken the stance that we are not able financially, to serve as a charitable organization and that any financial assistance to any individual person would be done on a "pass the hat" basis at a monthly meeting. Meaning - individuals would contribute from their own funds for any person who any member felt needed the financial support.

This is certainly up for discussion at the next monthly meeting however, in light of the situation, may I suggest that members who wish to donate money to assist Deborah bring it to the next meeting so we can take up a collection for her at that time.

If anyone in the group feels the need to vote on this to change the past practice it is certainly an option and you should contact Jay Jacobs to add this item to the agenda for the upcoming meeting.
