Old Business: Bead Affair Committee. Chris reported that the committee will meet again Sept. 29th. The website is ready to go live later tonight. Lori asked that members go to the website and let her know if there are any links that are not accurate, or if there are any issues to fix. The website is omahabeadaffair.weebly.com.  They still need people to teach classes at the event.
