It was decided, tho, that when the Board had something of interest to the Club, that they would have an agenda printed in the Bulletin previous to the meeting so those who may be interested could attend.

New board members elected are Mary Castelloe, Mac McWilliams, William Martyn.

ADELINE ADAMS we were all pleased to see you at the Annual Meeting, and looking so chic, too.

MAGARET MARKLEY sympathies are extended to Margaret during her mother's serious illness and to Margaret's mother we all extend our thoughts and best wishes.

TAKEN FROM THE LODGE ARE FOUR COPIES OF SUMMIT BOOKS. The only one left is a copy of the Thielson summit book. Some plan is going to have to be worked out so that when one or more is taken, to have the person taking them sign for them. These were sorely needed at the Annual Meeting.
