Minutes of the Emergency Meeting

Minutes of the emergency business meeting held on Thursday, July 17th :

  1. Members were informed that the Kenilworth Community Center will be demolished in the coming months to make room for a new police station.
  2. Mike Wojcio revealed this would likely occur in the October 2008-June 2009 time frame but warned there is a 10-20% chance the club’s final week at the center could be in September 2008. He will contact Kenilworth mayor Fiaminga and other officials about a getting replacement building in the borough and try to pin-point the eviction date.
  3. A show of hands indicated most members would be willing to meet on another weeknight, should Thursday not be available at our new site, and in another Union County town. Geoff McAuliffe suggested that if a different night was selected, we could meet at the new facility and Kenilworth, until the center closes.
  4. Jack McCorkell will investigate options in Cranford (which is home or former home to 6 of our members) while Howard Osterman does so in Westfield, Clark and Scotch Plains. Bill Sokolosky will be looking into some Kenilworth spots.

Emergency Meeting Thursday

Member-At-Large Mike Wojcio has informed me that Kenilworth will be expanding the police headquarters and demolishing the Community Center.

At the moment, we do not know when this is going to occur or if the town will be providing another location for the club. Regardless, we need to develop a contingency plan. So, there will be an emergency business meeting for Thursday 7/17, at 8:15 p.m.

P.S. - Given, Mike W.'s long history as President and experience in dealing with the politicians, I urge you to heed his advice and not say anything inflammatory to any Kenilworth official.
