Lorrie called the city of Santa Clarita for a speaker for Oct. October is full but we may get Marcia McLean, Mayor, as a speaker for Nov.

A list was passed for filling in Board Meeting hostesses for those months still empty.

Alyce introduced the subject of our upcoming participation in an Elks club fund raiser where we have been offered a booth to present our club to possible new members. Since this is a recruitment function on our part, she felt those who are manning the booth should be familiar with the by-laws and the requirements for membership. It was thought it might be prudent to take names and have them get in touch with our membership chair, Nancy. Nancy is more than willing to talk with persons interested in our club. Carol Maul will take care of obtaining flyers for that event. Lorrie will share her Presidents Memory Scrapbook as well. Other past presidents will be asked to share. It was also discussed having a share of past presidents books on a luncheon day in the early part of the year.

Further discussion followed regarding the admission of guests to any of our games or gatherings.

Clarification was given; any one may be a guest one time to a game or social gathering or the luncheon. No guests are permitted on a Vagabond outing, so as to leave room for members.

Old business – The Entertainer we have been talking with for Feb has agreed to perform at the VCC at our March luncheon. 
Meeting adjourned at 2:26 pm

Respectfully submitted, Muriel Usselman,  Secretary
