The Rutland Community Club met on Monday, May 13th, at the Rutland Hall. The new list of work groups will be on the new Rutland website for easier access; the online version will not include telephone numbers; each Chair assigned to an event will have the numbers so they can contact their group members. Katie McLaen will Chair the Memorial Day luncheon on Monday following the program presented by American Legion Bergman-Evenson Post #215 and the Rutland American Legion Auxiliary. There will be a potluck dinner following the morning program. The Club authorized purchase of nine flowerpots to be placed along First Street that will be tended by the area businesses where they are placed. Katie has been checking on the cost of new flags along First Street and due to their cost, she will check on getting a metal sign instead. The Block Party will be held Thursday, June 6, with burgers on the grill and lots of games planned for the event. A Chair is still needed for Uffda Day and should be determined by July 1 to allow the event to happen this year. The annual Easter Egg Hunt at the Hall, hosted by the Leinen Family for the past eighteen years, will be assumed by the Club due to Jeanne’s ‘retirement’. Jeanne’s help will be needed to help organize the event to keep it as exciting and fun as the Hunt’s held for the past many years.
