President: Bryanna O.
Vice President of Programs: Robin W.
Vice President of Membership: Frieda Z.

Since each nominee was running unopposed, we had a vote to ratify the aforementioned board, which passed by a 16-0 vote (unanimous vote of members present at the meeting).

Other Business:

We drew names for the ornament swap. If you indicated to Amy that you were participating, but were not present at the meeting, I will be sending you an email.

Robin did a book review on “99 Modern Blocks From Your Favorite Designers” and everyone drooled. She gave away a copy as a door prize and Tammy won!!

Sally brought a cute birthday gift for Robin.
