Hal Kendall

Good wording Fly. I'm in for a donation. Maybe we could get the club to put up half if we can get the other half donated? You'd have to get a member of the BOD to make that a motion [if there's any interest]. OTOH, there's plenty pf money in the treasury if the club feels that honoring Hal is worthwhile. Sale of Hal's CDs will bring in future revenue. I don't believe that the club paid for Ed Johnson's plaque, but I'm often wrong.

We are in for $25, more if needed. Someone should make a motion so it can be started. J.R. Tex rep

Fly - 12/19/2013 12:15 PM Page 2 Paula called this morning. Ed Johnson's plaque is the same size. It reads. Edgar Johnson Manhattan Illinois USCA #1 i thought maybe Hal Kendall Cofounder United Sidecar Association not everyone knows what USCA stands for. this way it is a tribute to Hal and publicity for the Association. fly

Hi Fly,

Thankyou for following up on this, now we need to attract the USCA board's attention.......I to would be more than happy to donate towards it.

I can't make a motion either, too bad we don't have a NE or a MW Director who is concerned about this. I'll send my personal donation off today to start the ball rolling.

I have called and set this up. Currently you cannot make in memory donation on line. Checks can be mailed with a note in the memo stating in memory of Hal Kendall.

Hi Joyce,

Maybe before you send anything to the AMA could you please mention it on racdis, not all of the directors...or what is left of them..... I believe go through the topics here.

As to the open board positions, sadly it seems to be a common thing these days every where.

Chuck, there are more things to consider and many IRS complications. Like a 501C7 non-profit donating to a 501C3 non-profit. At the same time personally anyone can take a charitable deduction. My check is already in the mail and I hope many more will follow.

Revised 12/21/2013: Since several of us plan to make personal contributions, I'm considering making a motion for the Association to match our members and fund 1/2 ($250) the AMA memorial plaque for Hal. Jena & I in for $25.

$25 seems to be the standard that's been set so count me in... I'll put the check in the mail this morning.

Swamp Fox, thanks for stepping up and making the motion that the USCA pay $250 of the plaque.
