August Meeting Summary 2014

The girls met at the Iron Bear as usual.  Several of the girls had conflicting issues to attend to, so we had smaller attendance this month.

We discussed a great service opportunity presented to AgoL by the staff of the Dallas Beyond Vanilla event.  They were very impressed by how the AgoL girls ran the food service at the GWNN Bash PP, and asked if we would be interested in running the Presenter’s Lounge at their event.

Because we had low attendance, it was decided that we would post the service opportunity to our yahoo group.  We decided that in order to staff it for the entire event and still allow the girls working it to have some down time, we would need the participation of 5-6 girls minimum.

After giving the girls some time to respond, it was decided that, unfortunately, we would not have enough girls available to attend the event to accept this service opportunity this year.  We advised the Beyond Vanilla staff that perhaps with more notice, we could plan to do so the following year.

Instead, some of the girls that are planning to attend Beyond Vanilla this year will try to volunteer time in the Lounge as they have time.

We are very proud to have been asked, and we thank the girls that have done such great work in the community that it is being noticed and respected.





July Meeting Summary 2014

The girls met on July 12th at our home bar, The Iron Bear.

We had two topics to discuss on the agenda.  The first was our participation at the GWNN Bash event.  We discussed the logistics of participating in the Parade of Clubs, setting up our bootblack and seamstress at the event, and the food/kitchen shifts for the PP.  We also discussed and approved the idea of donating homemade cookies, and at least 5 girls agreed to make 2 dozen cookies each, to take to the PP.

The second discussion point was about Pride.  The girls are still researching costume ideas and it was clarified that no one ‘has’ to dress up. Each girl will decide what they want to wear, as long as it includes their AgoL shirts.  Some girls are choosing to wear masks, some will use face paint, some will wear their leathers and others will wear tutus.  Whatever they feel represents their inner ‘girl’, will represent the club well.  We agreed to begin discussion of a timeline of when and where to meet prior to the parade, at the next month’s meeting.

We also agreed to thank our Associate Member that donated cigars for the girls to raise funds with at the last Iron Bear Bar Leather and Latex night.  The girls agreed to all sign and issue this member a Thank You card for their generous donation and support of the girls.  The Thank You card will be brought to the next meeting for all the girls to sign.

None of the girls turned in any funds from I(Heart)AgoL button sales, so those sales are still pending.  All the girls are working hard to make these button sales as our fundraiser for the year.

Two buttons were gifted to the bar tenders of The Iron Bear to wear during upcoming Leather and Latex nights.  We want to show our support to the bar employees taking such great care of the girls.
