Financial Report – We haven’t received the check yet for CAF. JoAnn will be getting reimbursed; Marlys approved that expense.

Life Member Report – Paula Adams passed away. A card was sent to the funeral home. Nancy will ask Chris to surprise us with the luncheon menu. We are hoping the cost will still be $10.
