OCTOBER 19, 2017
Hooper Trustees Present: Peggy Pschirrer (Chair); Steven Dalessio; Cheryl Mayberry
Call to Order: Mrs. Pschirrer called this Hooper Trustees meeting to order at 6:38 PM.
Meetinghouse West, LLC: Mr. Jeff Miller, Mr. Phil Hicks and Mr. Noel Cassidy were representing Meetinghouse West, LLC. Mr. Hicks advised the golf club sends equipment out to be sharpened during the winter and asked if he should do the same this winter. Mrs. Pschirrer noted the Hooper Trustees have a date of January 2, 2018 to close on the property. She is meeting with Mr. Sheehan’s architect tomorrow as he will inspect the Mansion and barn. E.E. Houghton & Company was asked to attend as the furnace will need to be turned on as a part of the inspection. The architect will be back on Sunday to inspect the pro shop. Hopefully, Mr. Joe Goodhue will be in the area so the house can be inspected as well. At this time we do not know what the tax rate will be for next year. She felt Mr. Hicks could call Mr. Sheehan to ask about the equipment. The mowers and golf carts do not belong to the Hooper Trust. Most of the furniture will be sold. Ms. Sharon Boccelli has priced all of it. Some items, especially civil war items, will be sold at one of Ms. Boccelli’s auctions. The golf pictures will be given to Mr. Sheehan. Mr. Sheehan continues to make plans for the property. He wants to make this golf club a destination place. Replying to a question from Mr. Hicks, Mrs. Pschirrer noted at the end of the year Meetinghouse West will be filing tax returns and the money that is left will come back to the Hooper Trust. Mr. J. Miller will have authority to write checks for Meetinghouse West after Mr. Goodhue has moved.
