CAKES:  Darlene Dail 410-252-4746

Thanks to all who donated cakes in June: 

Darlene Dail, Joyce Scheper, Gloria Smedley, Paul Julian.

 

We have no one signed up for cakes for the rest of the year. I think it might be time to stop asking for home baked desserts.

 

We will look into the cost of having the hall supply us with a dessert each month, or how much it would cost to purchase desserts from other sources.  We will discuss this again next month.  Tom Sommerville, Clare Musick and Jack Gill said they would bring the goodies for the July meeting.

 

GM NEWS:

We will be having the Election of Officers. Anyone interested in holding one of the positions, please call Dale.

 

At the last meeting the subject of purchasing the leftover food from lunch to take home was brought up.  The hall does not have a license to allow carry-out food.  Therefore they cannot let us buy the leftovers.

 

Dale read an article about the biggest US companies pass 60 years.  From 1955-1975 GM was 1st place, 1976 GM was 2nd place, 78 back up to 1st place, 80was 2nd,81was 3rd place,83 was 2nd, 86 was 1st place, 2001 was 3rd, 2012 was 5th and 2009-2015 was not on the top list at all.  The top company is now Walmart.
