Minutes

The minutes of the December 8, 2011 meeting were read and accepted by Layton, seconded by Fran.

Old Business

The Christmas party was a success, everybody enjoyed themselves. The snowman was a big hit, and the DJ kept us entertained with the music.

The food was delicious except complaints were made that the sausage & peppers was put on the tables first and got cold when the rest of the meal was served. Also, no bowls were provided for the sausage & peppers.

The food collected from the Christmas party was distributed to church food pantries.
