Annual Luncheon Review:

We had a nice turnout and came out even on the payments with no outstanding payments at this time.  We will reserve the date now for 2017 at the Washington Golf and Country Club for November 15, 2017.  Speaker ideas include: Don Beyer, someone from Points of Light Foundation, others?

Board of ISCC:

  • Edd Nolan is the President
  • Joe Lott will continue as the Treasurer and will keep track of current members and payment information.
  • Kim Durand will be happy to help with the website, take notes at meetings and post items to Facebook.  Also send notes to this group.


We could post an announcement on Volunteer Arlington site (Lisa Fikes) looking for members for each of our clubs as well as for ISCC.  We could get more volunteers, and also, get more exposure.  Lisa is happy to meet with service clubs one-on-one, or she could give a briefing at our next meeting.

ISCC Mission:

Our website states that the Inter-Service Club Council of Arlington is an association organized in 1940 for liaison between the various service clubs/organizations of Arlington. Its purpose is to act as a clearinghouse for the exchange of ideas and the furthering of amicable relations between its member clubs/organizations.

ISCC objectives are:
  • To promote friendship, good will and understanding among the member clubs/organizations.
  • To coordinate projects among the various service clubs/organizations.
  • To discuss community problems and how member clubs/organizations can address them in an effort to make the community a better place in which to live.
  • To address the needs of member clubs/organizations in their efforts to recruit and sustain members.

There was some discussion of revising this to better suit our current mission.
