Ten members were present, and Ruby Niccum led the table blessing.

Outgoing President Donna Abner shared some information she had in hand about project possibilities.

Niccum, the incoming president, led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance and recitation of the club creed. She then called roll call and minutes of the previous meeting.
