Officers were elected for the coming year. They are President Alice Megargle, Vice President George Lancaster, Secretary Sandy Orr, Treasurer Betty Lou Orr and Assistant Secretary / Treasurer Grace Lizak. Dolores Margies and Edna Rew were thanked for their service on the board the previous year.
The By-laws Committee recommended six changes. All six passed with more than the required two-thirds vote. One significant change is the addition of a "good standing" requirement.
"Good standing" requires a member to attend at least two business meetings each year, which entitles them to receive any discounts offered by the club. Another amendment opens membership to any person who has reached the age of 55, adheres to the objectives of the club and pays their yearly dues, currently set at $10 a year.
The other amendments streamline language and clarify intent.
