Board members present were Jacquie Swain, Glenn Swain, Mae Becker, Ken Kreskowiak.
To begin the room held the group very comfortably. AIR CONDITIONED and very comfortable seats.
A brief report on the garage sale was presented. The club was able to sell off many items and collected a handsome amount. Discussion about the 2015 Annual show was conducted pertaining to the cost, location and the need to have our members commit to helping with setup and breakdown and everything in between. Many options were presented by all present.
We had one walk-in observe our shenanigans with the outcome that she requested to join the club. Although her membership won’t be official until the Board Meeting I wish to welcome, albeit prematurely, Janet Dillon to the club.
An impromtu discussion on everyones favorite rock and/or mineral took place and Joel and Marie were very helpful in answering many questions people had. Thank you both.
