Welcome back everyone. Hope everyone had a great summer and stayed “cool” during our many heat waves.
During the months of June, July and August, we were busy. Our group participated in a wide variety of activities. They included eating at various restaurants, visiting local museums, participating in chair yoga, playing miniature golf, having catered lunches, enjoying our annual picnic, having a book swap and attending interesting presentations to include questions and “guess the item,” etc. etc. All in all, with all the activities the summer months just seemed to fly by. For doing all this summer planning, we need to give a big note of thanks to Grace Dunham and Donna Wardlow for their outstanding effort in keeping our summertime active. And another note of thanks to Don and Sheryl Ryder for creating our catered lunches and seeing if we could identify some old-time hidden objects.
Our last meeting was the monthly business meeting. Along with birthday announcements, we had cupcakes and ice cream.
Business meeting highlights:
- Past meeting minutes were read and accepted.
- Treasurer’s report was read and accepted.
- We still need to do a membership drive. A chairperson is needed.
- It as approved that the Treasurer can move our checking account from Bank of America (due the Hollis branch closing) to another bank.
- Discussion was generated about paying, in advance, for Meals on Wheels. We will do a trial period over the next month to see how this new system works.
- Possible fall trips were discussed, ranging from Portsmouth to the Lakes.
