Old Business:  

  1. Recap hosting January GSA -Nancy G and Sue L did a tremendous job and many helpers

stepped up. Of note are Jim C & Mike M who cooked and served a delicious lunch of taco salads.

Nancy reports that asking for help and allowing others to serve made things run smoothly

The assembly was very well attended above expected capacity, but we made things stretch

The group had decided to ask the Area for reimbursement and then donate funds back to Area

Nancy suggested offering “seed money” to other districts without the means to hold an event.  Maybe ask JoAnn T. for suggestions.  Maybe District 3?

New Business:  NONE

Meeting closed at 8:17 with the Responsibility Declaration. 

Respectfully submitted by Secretary, Amy H.
