On 2/7/24 Al Kellogg met at SF88 with maintenance and safety to go over some new procedures and safety concerns. For future work or major items the volunteers must give the GGNRA 30 days advance notice for work they are proposing to complete. This requires a JHA form. Greg Brown will also keep a log of the work done and provide it to Vassar Terry of the GGNRA.
The park service gave a safety presentation to our volunteers. Vassar Terry provided hard hats, safety glasses and miscellaneous cleaning items to the Nike volunteers. Then a tour was arranged for the maintenance group and the safety administration. The GGNRA has sanctioned the Nike volunteers to work at SF88.
We are also working on the dissolution of the Nike Historical Society aided by Gordon Lunn with his professional help.
Al Kellogg has been asked by Alec Gyorfi, a volunteer at SF88, if we can provide 2 patches that he had purchased awhile ago and was running out of stock. We all agreed that we can pay for these new patches and he can distribute them.
Ron Jacobs, our webmaster, would like to see the websites nikemissile.org and nikeordinance.org continue and we will have more information on that at the next meeting.
Our next meeting is on April 21, 2024 in SSF at 10:00 a.m.
Meeting adjourned at 11:27 a.m.
