President Herlinda Giandalia was unable to attend the general meeting. At her request, Kathy Bergstrom presided over the meeting calling it to order at 9:48 a.m.
Kathy welcomed the members and the following guests: Susan Best, Peggy Johnson, Dawn Quinones, Joyce Weiss and Stan Corbett, all potential new members.
Kathy made the following announcements:
It is time to submit dues. If unable to do so today, mail a check ($35) to Marsha Burnett, Treasurer.
A donation can still be made for an award honoring Carol Morris Ward by sending it to Marsha Burnett. To distinguish it from dues, note on the check that it is a donation to the award.
It was moved, seconded and passed that an award be set up honoring Helen Mallett, Emeritus and long-time member, who recently passed away.
