A large variety of casseroles, salads and desserts were enjoyed by all. Louise Richer, Bonnie Johnson, Nancy Navarro and Nancy Peters were the kitchen committee.
Chaplain Goodrich read "Irate Woman," "No Money" and "The Meaning of The Flag Folding" and led the group in prayer. Secretary Izetta Ayling read the minutes and correspondences and Treasurer Edna Brown gave her report. Goodwill Chair Carlson reported she had sent several cards. Trip Co-Chairs Sandy Anderson and Jean Kelsey reported that the trips were filling up fast for Vidlers and Cambridge Springs.
Program Chair Bill Tornstrom introduced Shane Jacobson from New York Public Service on Energy Conservation. Jacobson explained how to conserve natural resources and what savings are available to help. The new florescent bulbs alone could save about 40 percent. Fans can help cool and assist the air conditioners. Dryers, refrigerators and TV's use the most electricity. He had many helpful booklets for the group, and he answered several questions.
