President Matisak asked for members to pass along any word of illnesses, losses or surgeries to a member of the board so that the club can send an acknowledgment.
Ray Sawyer, Membership Chairman, reported that we now have 105 members. President Matisak stated that we hope to soon have Ray’s club merchandise available on our website.
At this time the floor was turned over to the Event Chairmen, David and Barbara Williams, for the report on our events from the last month. Phil & Jan Serocki took some of our members to Key West for their annual Christmas parade. On December 9 we had our annual Christmas party at the Barn Dinner theater.

President Matisak thanked the Williams for their hard work and encouraged members to help the Williams by hosting an event or offering suggestions. She stressed that veteran members will be glad to assist anyone wanting to lead an event. She then asked for any officer’s reports. There were none. She thanked Linda Herndon for hosting the Christmas outing and asked members to give Linda any memorabilia from past events for our scrapbook.
