June 19, 2018 in Minutes

Members/Persons present: 2 Judges, 15 attorneys: The Honorable Scott Sparks, The Honorable James Hurson, Tony Swartz, John Ufkes, Carol Pidduck, Jim Pidduck, Eileen Murphy, Candy Powers, Terry Weiner, Dovie Sigle, Jeff Winter, Paul McBride, Greg Zempel, Candy Powers, Zera Lowe, Michelle Hull, Debra King.

President Swartz called the meeting to order. The meeting minutes from the December 2017 Christmas meeting, which took place on December 21, 2017 and February 8, 2018 were not available for review.

Fran Chmelewski, retired Superior Court Judge, passed away on June 9, 2018 after a long battle with cancer. Discussions regarding Bar Association activities related to her memorial service and a possible event in her honor followed, with a bar sponsored court reception followed by a reception at Whipsaw Brewery being among the ideas noted. This bar event is to be scheduled by Tony Swartz, Judge Sparks, and members of the social committee.

The March social with Court of Appeal Judge Purnell and Judge Lawrence-Berry was a success but not discussed.

There was a question regarding the adequacy of quarterly meetings, and after further discussion the remaining year schedule was held to be the July/August Judge Chmelewski event, a September business meeting, and a December social unless additional input was noted as some point going forward. We will continue to informally meet for lunch each month.

Carol Pidduck indicated the Bar Association finally this year awarded a $1000.00 scholarship and then a motion was made to change the name of the scholarship to the Judge Francis Chemlewski memorial scholarship from this point forward. This was seconded, and approved unanimously.

The meeting was then adjourned as there was no further business.

Respectfully submitted,
John Ufkes
