Email newsletter signup

New business: A discussion about the club’s 90th anniversary celebration. Several ideas were put forth about where to hold it and whom to invite.

Treasurers report: $14.50 in the kitty.

The club still needs more members. Names of potential members were submitted and will be contacted. The outside reading was presented by Mary Gallaher. The subject was gold eagles and their amazing comeback from near extinction.

The main topic was given by Hazel Schlicting. The subject was pennies. Canada has started trying to round the prices to even dollars. No more $2.99, for instance. The U.S. would like to do the same. lt costs more to produce pennies than what they are worth.

Sara served a wonderful lunch, and we all enjoyed good fellowship. The meeting was adjourned.
