FOR THE GOOD OF THE CLUB:
Thank you to the hosts of this week’s campout, Bob & Gloria Danielson and John & Cathy Hilley, they did a terrific job.
Having no further business, meeting was adjourned. President John Hilley then called Helen Evans for a “Health Report”. Helen had been ill therefore she and John did not attend the campout. We missed them.
