Kudos, to Gloria Falk and friends, for all the hard work redoing the Chapter's Photo Albums. Jean Ellison volunteered to be the Refreshments coordinator for this year.

This is the year that revisions are made to the By-Laws. Any member can submit a possible change to any board member for discussion.

It was decided not to have a booth in the Chapter Marketplace at the National Convention in Nashville.

Gloria Falk gave a report on charities, memory boxes and retreat. Marilyn Hartnett gave a report on up coming programs, seminars and sharing workshops. Jose gave a report on the newsletter and the website. Lorie Reece gave a report on membership.

There will be a gift basket full of goodies for charity donations. Each time a member donates a memory box, or gives to the charity their name will be placed in the drawing. The winner will be drawn at the November meeting.
The Paint-in for February is finishing the Chapter Logo on your vest, shirt, etc started at last year's retreat. Next Meeting's Paint-in will be Ginger German's paper bag books.
