New Business. Last month we heard from the Election Committee that no one was interested in running for any of the offices. All of the officers except the President Mike McCullough were willing to continue their offices. We had an election vote of acclamation at the December meeting confirming the officers for another 2 years. With Mike leaving the President’s position and his duty’s will be shared as needed. Next month’s meeting we will have a sign up sheet. Thank You Mike for all you have done for the club. We appreciate all your years of service.
