Minutes from October’s meetings were accepted by all.
The group reviewed the request for funding from the SW Senior Center to continue their in-house senior exercise program. The two-day a week program is in jeopardy of being cut due to a loss of funding. SW Senior Center had asked for a commitment from all three neighborhood groups (East Harriet, Carag, and KFNA) to keep this vital program running. Linnes-Robinson had surveyed all the other neighborhood groups and although they had a strategy that could be used to fund the program, they had no funds available. The Steering Committee felt this program fit the needs of seniors in Kingfield and the surrounding area and agreed to fund this program for up to one year if SW Senior Center submitted a KFNA Social Service Grant application and continued to search for funding for additional years from the other neighborhoods and outside sources. Linnes-Robinson will follow-up with the Maryanne Schoenberger, SW Senior Staff. The application can be submitted electronically.
The group spent the rest of the meeting completing the C&E Matrix, both assigning values to the stated goals, and then discussing each project on the list. The completed chart is attached here.
The timeline for planning was briefly discussed.
