PROPOSED AMENDMENT
Helen Hughes

One item of business to be voted on at the annual meeting is a proposed amendment to the By-Laws, that would change the date of the annual meeting from the first to the second Tuesday of October. The changed date would ease the rush of closing the books for the fiscal year and would give added time for an audit to be prepared. Under the present arrangement, it is possible that the annual meeting might fall on the first day of the month, in which case an audit as of Sept. 30th would be very difficult to secure.

THE AMENDMENT WILL READ:

To amend Section 1 of Article VII by changing the word "first" to "second" so that the article will read:

"The annual meeting of this club shall be held in Lane County on the second Tuesday in October of each year."

REMEMBER THAT THIS NOVEMBER THERE IS ANOTHER RIGHT AND PRIVILEGE WHICH YOU AS A FREE AMERICAN CITIZEN CAN ENJOY-----YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE - BE SURE TO DO SO!!! REGISTER AND VOTE!!!
