First Photograph, left to right: Jamie Lafever, Trenton Moulin, and Mike Vereb. Mike and Sally Vereb hosted the September 17th meeting of the Clarion County Community Foundation Board of Directors at Lincoln Hall, a historic performance space above the Foxburg Free Library. Sally made pizzas and chocolate chip cookies in the kitchen of the Button House and brought them across the street to our delight. The Board has never been treated so well or met in so charming a space.

Second Photograph, left to right: Barry McCauliff, Bill Kaufman, Janice Horn, and Hal Wassink. Following our meeting we toured the Button House, a Depression Era home of double plank construction Mike and Sally have restored and decorated in period furnishings to display some of Sally’s vast collection of buttons.

Third Photograph, left to right: Jamie Lafever, Clara Belloit, Jerry Belloit, and Sally Vereb. Sally gave us a brief introduction and then we wandered throughout the house. The buttons decorate every room and are organized by time, fashion, material, and subject matter.

Fourth Photograph, altogether: Charles Marlin and Sally Vereb. We asked lots of questions and had an aw-shucks time. It would be difficult not to enjoy a tour of the Button House which Sally offers during the summer months. Call her at (724) 659-0180 or do the email thing at buttons@thebuttonhouse.com

Fifth Photograph: Depression Era aprons at the Button House. The tours are free; but there is a “Donations Appreciated” bowl in the living room. You can skip the bowl if you bring Sally a bag of buttons; or as I discovered, Sally has a second weakness for Depression-Style aprons. Find her a good one, and bring it along.

Please don’t expect Sally to make pizzas for you as she only does that for very “special” occasions. Around the corner from the Button House is the Foxburg Pizza Place, the Allegheny Grille, Foxburg Wine Cellars, and Divani Chocolatier (and ice cream parlor). You will not leave Foxburg hungry.

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

The Board of Directors of the Clarion County Community Foundation met Wednesday, November 18, 2009, to hear reports and conduct business.

The first report was on Clarion Friends and the continuing problem with our PayPal account.  A donor can not access our PayPal account to make a donation and the Board can not obtain a satisfactory explanation.  The second report was by Vice President Janice Horn on what has recently transpired at BBCF Trustees meetings.  The third report was by our Treasurer Jerry Belloit on the Managed Investment Accounts.

Our Executive Director Steve Kosak gave a short review of the Wealth Transfer Symposium sponsored by BBCF at Seneca Hills Bible Conference on Friday, November 13, 2009.  He anticipates holding follow-up meetings on creating a legacy society for each affiliate as well as a data base for an annual appeal and other mailings.

The Board reviewed the recently approved BBCF Protocol on Grant Decisions.  The Protocol outlines how in a timely fashion decisions by fund committees can be passed on to an affiliate board of directors and then on to the board of trustees to take final action on the fund committees recommendations.

The Board approved a resolution to be passed on to the BBCF Trustees on promoting the organization of community foundation affiliate in Jefferson County, as well as extending endowment fund services to Butler County.  The resolution is important enough that it will be posted in its entirety after this posting.

The final action of the meeting was the election of three new Directors, Anne Day of Clarion, Barry McCauliff of Shippenville, and Matt Best of Shippenville.  There remains two open positions on the Board and if anyone is interested they may contact any Board member or the Board President Charles Marlin at (814) 797-2233.

Board members are divided into three classes that expire sequentially.  If elected a Board member may serve two consecutive terms for a total of six years.  Those members of the 13 March 2010 class are Nancy Ambrose, Anne Day, Janice Horn, William Rupert, and Jane Schautz.  Those members of the 13 March 2011 class are Clara Belloit, Jerry Belloit, Charles Marlin, Barry McCauliff, and Rhonda McMillen-Toth.  Those members of the 13 March 2012 class are Matt Best, William Hearst, and Randy Vossburg.  Charles Marlin
