Don Durfee addressed the audience and ran the short business meeting:

Don named all the current Board members.

Fund raisers last year included our Annual Used Book Sale, the Book Cart sales, and Econo Food receipts. We also continue to sell blankets and note cards.


One board member term is up this year – Gail Mroz. Gail has agreed to stand for re-election to the board.

Four board members resigned from the board, and immediately agreed to be re-elected to the board: Karen Hubbard, Dee Vincent, Mary Marchaterre, and Faith Morrison.

There were no nominations from the floor.  All were in favor of these nominations to be elected to the board 

A slate of officers was nominated to serve for the coming year:

Secretary                      Amy Hughes

Vice Chair                    Don Durfee
Chair                            Dee Vincent

All were in favor of these nominations, except that Terry Reynolds was not in favor of the Treasurer nominee.
