PRESENTATION OF BILLS:  N/A

 

NEW BUSINESS: N/A

 

We  have a lot of things to talk about, but because of the crab feast today, I am going to wait until the November meeting to have  our non urgent discussions.   There is only one item that has to be brought up to the membership today.  Last month we discussed and voted that we would eliminate meetings in December, starting with the December 2011meeting. We also discussed the possibility of not having a meeting this December, since we have the Christmas Party in December.  I talked with Richard, the President of Turners and he said he has no problem with us not having a meeting in December of 2011 and would not charge us for a meeting this year if we decide to eliminate it also. The membership voted on this proposal and agreed not to hold a December 2010 meeting.  There will not be a Club  Meeting this December
