Social-  Dorothy Karnes mentioned the June 27th trip to the Van Nuys Airport the Fire Station there and lunch to follow at the 94th Aero Squadron. She needs a $5 deposit from those wishing to attend. It will ultimately be donated to the fire stations' fund.

New Business-  Carol, in discussion with Irene Jannson and Sandi Cates, introduced the idea of holding our monthly board meetings at either of their clubhouses every month. This would eliminate the need to search for members homes. Irene and Sandi are in agreement of this idea as long as others help with set up and refreshments. Carol thought we could go down the list of board members, by twos, to provide this each month. This idea was well received by the board in attendance.

Old business -
 Meeting adjourned at  1:50 pm
