2.                  Thanked the entire Board for all their hard work at this meeting. The number of participants at the committee meetings was great.

A huge amount of work was accomplished.

              B.      In Mr. Beuerlein's absence, Mrs. Graham asked for comments or questions from the members.

He further expressed his appreciation to the Board of Directors for their faithful provision of direction by their participation in committees every six months.
