Vagabonds - Gia reports we are full for our scheduled trip to Santa Anita for a day at the races. Would still like a few names on a wait list in case a seat opens up. Money must be sent when a name is placed on the list.

New Business - Ann Anderson has found it necessary to resign as hostess. Irene Janssen will be filling that position.
The subject of alleviating to cost to the hostess for our board meetings was presented with a suggestion was made; make the meetings a small pot-luck, with members bringing only a small dish for our enjoyment. This will allow those who have size constraints to share in the cost. The hostess will still provide drinks and paper products. Motion made, seconded and approved. Carol will see this is in the February newsletter.
Guest members attending the meeting were introduced. Rita Jepson and Kathy Kunkel were welcomed.

Old business - It was brought to out attention that our newsletter states "non-profit". This is an error, we are a social club not non-profit and this will be corrected.
Meeting adjourned at  2:11 pm

Respectfully submitted,  Muriel Usselman,  Secretary
