This meeting we met at the Freeland Library as usual. The main order of business was welcoming our new president, Dan Maxwell, to the leadership.

Dan has some great ideas and we feel the club will grow well under his leadership.

David Neel will be  Vice president, Sooja Nerlich agreed to be secretary and David Shoup will be our new treasurer.

The future of the club was discussed and it was decided to go back to a more formal association format. This will give us access to opportunities and discounts that were difficult to get when we were an informal group. We are in process of inventorying  our equipment and books available for check out and will have a detailed list here on the website by January 1st.

Starting Jan 1st we will reinstate membership dues. The dues will be $15 fo an individual and $20 for a family. Meetings will always be free to attend, but being a paying member will grant you access to the equipment and lending library and the ability to participate in group purchases.
