The Board of Directors of the Clarion County Community Foundation held its Annual Meeting on March 20th, our sixth since or founding 13 March 2007. As part of our anniversary we placed a flower on the graves of those who are honored by memorial funds and those who have established a fund.
We elected to second terms of two years the officers of the Board: President Bill Kaufman, Vice President Charles Marlin, Treasurer Jerry Belloit, and Secretary Clara Belloit. Our current Trustees on the Board of Bridge Builders Community Foundations are serving terms that expire 13 March 2015. We elected the 13 March 2016 class of directors: Janice Horn, Jamie Lefever, Andy Montana, and Sally Vereb.
We hope to recruit three additional members to the Board; and extend an invitation to anyone interested in the work of the community foundation to contact our president, Bill Kaufman at (814) 229-8622. Two members, Nancy Ambrose and Bill Rupert, retired at the end of their terms, and shall be missed. Nancy Ambrose was a Founding Director of CCCF.
Following the election, the Board took three actions which must now be given final approval by the BBCF Trustees. First, we changed the CCCF Bylaws to eliminate the restriction on the number of terms a Director may serve if elected; and to allow officers of the Board to serve two consecutive terms of two years.
Second, we approved the Adam Weeter Memorial Scholarship Fund for Keystone High School Seniors. It will be a $2,000. scholarship, beginning this year.
Third, we approved a joint grant to the Clarion Y, a satellite of the Oil City Y, of $250 from CCCF, to be added to $750 from the Venango Area Community Foundation. Charles Marlin
