New board The new board for the Lime Springs Community Club includes, front Butch Burnikel as director and Marcie Klomp and secretary. Back: Curt Tienter as president, Dennis Langreck as vice and Bernard Roesler as director. Not pictued is treasurer Jill Johnson.

Curt Tienter brought a sigh of relief to members of the Lime Springs Community Club by agreeing to be president for a second year. “Dennis Langreck has agreed to be vice-president,” Tienter added, to a round of applause.

This will be the first time in quite a few years a president and vice-president were elected in January. Officers for the club change in January. It is stated in the by-laws the vice-president moves into the presidency. In the last few years, without a vice-president from the prior, someone has always graciously accepted the presidency at the January meeting.
Other officers for 2010 include Jill Johnson as treasurer, Marcie Klomp as secretary and Bernard Roesler and Butch Burnikel as directors.
Klomp gave an update on the Junior Club. “The kids had a Christmas party in December and gave $100 to fellow-member Makayla Gates, who sang in the Eagles Cancer Telethon.”

Scoutmaster Mike Johnson

• In other business, Scoutmaster Mike Johnson spoke to the group about a combined effort of the Boy Scouts and Community Club to sponsor an omelet breakfast to benefit the swimming pool. “Last year we served 200-250. It’s nothing like Sweet Corn Days,” he said of the numbers. Sunday, April 11 was tentatively set as the date for the benefit.

• Earl Johnson found out paperwork for 501-c3 status has finally been sent to the state, after a wait of several years.
• Christmas celebrations were reviewed. It was noted the Festival of Trees was held on a nice day with a nice turnout. The 75 served was a lower number than last year, but those attending had a good time eating and looking at the 18 trees. “The Preschool got the most votes,” said Kareen Johnson.
For Christmas in Lime Springs, Dorene Burnikel said seven roasters of chili were made with only two small containers left over.
It was mentioned serving the chili has always begun at 1:00. Many people were ready to eat before that. Perhaps the time should be moved back a little.
Kathy and Tom Kappers donated the chair used by Santa to the Community Center. A special silent raffle was held for the Community Center. The 23 donated baskets brought in over $825 for the facility.
• It was decided to hire the band Lost Faculties for the Sweet Corn Dance in August. Guitarman will play in the late afternoon and early evening before the dance.
It was also mentioned to have a donation bucket at the beer garden for the band. The Street Dance has always been free and this will help off-set the cost of the entertainment.
• As a way to get new businesses to join the Community Club—which used to be the Commercial Club—the club will give a free year’s membership to the business and also give away Lime Springs Bucks to be used at local businesses instead of giving a plant for the grand opening.
• The group agreed to pay its share ($1,200) of Lime Springs’ share of the Howard County Economic Development Director’s salary. “He (Ken Paxton) does a super job,” commented Butch Burnikel.
• The Mother’s Day Salad Luncheon was discussed. The  program occurs the day before Mother’s Day.
• A group of guys has already taken down the Christmas decorations.
• The next meeting will be Monday, February 15.
