Presiding:  Michael Helmantoler: Attending Pam Carson, Chuck Mood, Russ Felt, Margaret Buttars and Sandra Helmantoler

Pay Pal is now hooked to to our Bank of American Fork bank bank account so we can take electronic payments for annual dues and fund raising donations. 

We have a Utah Tax Commission non-profit ID number for purchases.  For purchase more than $1,000 we pay no sales tax, if it is less than $1,000 then we pay taxes and then fill out a form to get the taxes refunded.

Pam Carson a DUP Docent reported on Jane Williams, who married John Williams, and about Jane's sister Mary Armstrong.  They did the laundry for the soldiers.  It was a very interesting history and will be placed in the archives library and under our new Pinterest Page 'Women of Camp Floyd'.  We could use a volunteer to transcribe documents into computer text.

Russ Felt announced that Ron Meyer donated us his small piece of property. The lot is a rectangle piece of property visible on Highway 73.  We hope to put up signs announcing facts about historic Fairfield and the impact of Camp Floyd.

Michael Helmantoler is using Global Giving fundraising tools to raise $5,000 for signage by December 31st.  We need everyone to renew their $20 memberships during December so that it can be matched by a $20 donation.

Brad Gurney arranged for the Friends group to be the official 'Historical Society' for the town of Fairfield.

The FriendsofCampFloyd.org  web site is now linked to social networking tools: Facebook, GooglePlus, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Pinterist. These tools allow us to engage and interact with our audience.

Pam Carson suggested part doing  "Adopt a Highway"  to show that this highway is cleaned by the Friends of Camp Floyd. We will discuss with the park to see if the youth camps could participate.

Chuck Mood has applied with Friends support for a $1,000 grant to help outfit the parks re-enactors uniforms with authentic antebellum Civil War leather belt pouches. 

We are looking  for help doing our 2013 IRS form 990 used for 501c3 organization tax returns.
