Peggy motioned that we need to divide the membership up by the alphabet for the purpose of bringing food to the pot luck dinner at the outing.   This was seconded by Rosemary.  Motion passed.    It was also discussed by Keith that it would help in planning the outing if members would RSVP if they are planning to attend the outing and also make note of any guests they may want to include.

Molly C. brought a packet of material that explains the process needed to apply for grant money that may be available to the Club for the purchase of a piece of property as a permanent home.  She stated that there are grants available for recreational activities for which we may qualify.
