New Business We may need a new venue to meet. Rec. Council wants all monies to go through them. We need to decide if we want to be locked into their system or stay independent. As of now we have our own checking account and dispense our own checks. We also have control of our own funds. We are looking into where could we meet and the cost involved? If anyone knows of a venue please let Mike McCullough know.
Donations: Robert Corn gave a monetary gift to the club. Thank You Robert!
