The meeting was called to order with 13 members and 3 guests present. Lisa gave the Treasurer’s Report and noted that she has paid the church for the first half of the year, and collected dues from the new members.
Chris & Lisa gave a report from the Bead Affair committee. The three groups met last Saturday and discussed having a start-up bank account with each of the groups contributing $500. This money will be used for advertising and promoting the event. A motion was made by Lisa that our group would agree to the contribution of $500. Joni seconded it and the vote passed.
