Spahetti Warehouse, Syracuse, NY.
This was our first meeting of the year started off with a great dinner (as usual). The meeting started off with the usual introductions, raffles, etc. The president did a year end report going over attendance, meeting places and members who were ill or who passed through the bridge during the last year.
We also heard the reading of an email from Terry Miller, covered bridge author and covered bridge activist after he attended our November meeting. New business included going over upcoming meetings and a few events including a Covered Bridge Summit to be held at Oxford Memorial Library August 29 & 30th with many seminars and presentations on areas of concern and education in reference to covered bridges.
We discussed a couple of items as a group we are looking into and then had bridge news. An interpretive sign is in the works for Hyde Hall. Approval has been obtained to order the lumber to finish the Halls Mills. Passing through the Portal was Gert Ladd, John Farkas, James Lewis and Rachel Munson. Irma Petras had surgery and the Warrens from Canada sent their regards to their friends.
