November 4, 2017: Board Meeting @ 10:00 a.m.
Cub Scout Toy Drive
by Nancy Norris
This year our Goreville Cub Scouts are planning a Toy Drive. This Toy Drive is a new community service project. All toys collected will be given to the Goreville Ministerial Alliance. We are looking for clean toys in working order. Please, no broken toys.
Our Eagle Point Bay Association Board has agreed to have our Association Building act as a collection site. Please drop off any toys at the Association Building on Saturday, October 14th, or October 21st, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and noon.
This is an excellent example of how our Eagle Point Bay Board of Directors supports Cub Scouts and our community.
You will find it useful for current information about events at Eagle Point Bay. You can find the minutes of the September 2017 Meeting here. A list of all Board minutes is here. Please note that meeting minutes will not be published until two months after the Board meets. This allows the Board to review minutes before the following meeting.

Building Use Policy
On August 2, 2014 , the Board of Directors adopted a Building Use Policy. Briefly, the policy states:
Free use of the building will be accorded to organizations which
- submit a document stating their composition and purpose to the Board
- have at least 60% paid EPBA members
- guarantee open enrollment to all EPBA members
- be approved by the Board.

Cub Scout Food Drive
by Nancy Norris
Scouting for Food is the largest one-day food drive across America. It began in the St. Louis area in 1985. Since its beginning, more than 50 million food items have been donated by Americans to help others. Community service is an important part of Scouting, and this food drive is our largest project. All food collected will be given to the Ministerial Alliance in Goreville for distribution to those in need during the coming winter months.
Eagle Point Bay has a large area to cover, and it’s hard to get the collection bags to every home. I have been advised that we are not allowed to put the collection bags on mailboxes due to postal regulations. However, our Eagle Point Bay Association Board has agreed to have our Association Building act as a collection site. Please drop off your donation at the Association Building on Saturday November 11th or the 18th between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and noon. This is the third year we have been able to use our Association Building as a collection site, and I appreciate the EPB Board’s support. Please continue to be generous, and remember not to donate out of date food items. Even though we may use these in our homes, they may not be donated to those in need.
Boys in 1st through 5th grade can join Cub Scouts at any time. The Cub Scouts meet at the United Methodist Church on Thursday evenings at 6:30. If you would like more information, please email [email protected] or call Nancy at 618-363-1646.
80 Spring Cove Drive
A Community Meeting Place
Your Eagle Point Bay Association building is used for many community events. It is open most Saturday mornings for those who want to join, pay dues, ask for information and often for breakfast snacks and fellowship. Members may schedule the building for parties, reunions or other events. Why not start a special interest group, book club, craft club, DVD watching club. The EPB Board is interested in your ideas. The building can be made available for any board approved group that is open to all members. Just let us know.
