Hooper Institute Board: Ms. Mayberry reported that the Hooper Institute Board met yesterday and Mr. Meadows was present. It was a good meeting. Rather than talking to Mr. Kreissle about moving their money and opening a checking account, the members discussed giving the money in the Cambridge Trust to the Friends of the Hooper as they have an EIN number. Ms. Mayberry did not feel they could transfer this to a private group. She would double-check as she felt it needed to be done at the Town level. The members agreed and will talk with Mr. Kreissle. Ms. Dalbeck plans to have one program a month. Therefore, they would like to make their own deposits.
Mrs. Pschirrer moved to authorize Cheryl Mayberry to write a letter authorizing the Hooper Institute to transfer the Capital Reserve Fund, formerly a Money Market account, to a checking account using the Town’s EIN number at the Savings Bank of Walpole. Seconded by Mr. Dalessio. With Mrs. Pschirrer, Mr. Dalessio and Ms. Mayberry in favor, the motion was approved.
Hooper Institute Board Quorum: Ms. Mayberry would like to identify who is a board member. She wants to see the bylaws in order to determine the number of approved members.
