Old News: Discussion about the membership renewals for upcoming year. We are going to try to email everyone their new membership form and then it is in their hands and easy to access.

New News: Discussion about fundraising to have some more money in our account for donations. The discussion of selling O’Sheas candy bars. We took a vote to try to sell candy bars, 20 bars per person, there will be no time limit as to when you need to sell them. We will have them in a couple different flavors
