The regular Obsidian Board meeting was held April 7th, 1960, at the home of Anna and Henry Jeppesen.

Those present: Tom Taylor, Gerry Fehly, Frances Freedenburg, Kay Fahy, Lorena Shinn, Mike Stahl, Ray Cavagnaro, Jim Jeppesen, Donn Chase, Anna Jeppesen, Ray Sims, Gene Renard and Karl Onthank. Gerry read the minutes of the regular meeting in March and also the special meeting on March 24th.

Tom read the bills of the month, the Greyhound bus to Crater Lake, $182.11, Mishler's, $17.00, Bob Medill for stamps, $6,00 and Eugene Ins. Agency, $5.00 for Treasurer's bond. These were passed by the Board to be paid.

Frances Freedenburg reported doing the usual clipping for the scrapbooks and she turned the "duplicate" summit books in so they may be on display at Obsidian functions.

Gene Renard reported the progress of the building committee, showed a recent photo by Chickering taken above the lot to help in planning. Gene read Tom's plan up to now - the floor plan - size of rooms - then there was general discussion as to the size of the building. It was decided to have the lot surveyed by regular surveyers as the board members are too busy.
