Bike Light Giveaway seemed very successful. We are waiting for numbers and debrief from Cecily Zhou.
It was mentioned that Jasmine is looking into re-starting a Bicycle Ambassador program.
Matt Cox reported that Centre County’s first Cranksgiving was a great success, with 76 riders bringing over 1,000 llbs and over $2,000 worth of food for the Youth Service Bureau. YSB reported that food was delivered to shelters and Christine Bishop thanked Matt and all who planned and participated. There are plans to do it again next year and right now, date looks like November 7, 2020, with exciting new ride ideas! Thanks to Matt for organizing and Autumn for being a great second. A thank you card was sent to Elk Creek Cafe for providing beer.
A “Thank You For Support” card from Happy Valley Women’s Cycling was shared.
DISCUSSION OPEN FLOOR
Elections (plan was to post positions to ListServ and to nominate) Paul & Michele offered to stay in positions of Treasurer & Secretary unless someone else wanted to try it. Tristan kindly offered to serve as President until he departs (probably early January) and Matt Cox was suggested to become president, by several of us in attendance. Positions still needed are VP and many openings on Exec Committee.
Gordy Kauffman reported on Action Sports Park to be at High Point Park and on the trail plans at Harvest Fields in Boalsburg, with hopes to eventually get path to Galbraith Gap. And said he is interested in serving on the Exec Council.
Next Meeting: Monday, January 13, 2020 at 5:30pm State College Municipal Building in room 241
