Barbara reported that Larry and Dona sold their mobile home and will join us for dinner this weekend. We discussed what to do with the current box of plaques. One suggestion was to photograph the plaques. After the meeting the group will look at the plaques and discuss this further. We will be getting another plaque for 45 years.

Ray Fink mentioned the Ne. Good Sams.com web site. This is where we can get current information concerning the upcoming rally. ( We can no longer use the Good Sam logo on Face Book).
