November 8 2015 Hamden Presbyterian Church Fall Dinner

Karen and Wayne Marshfield and Marcia Bailey were thanked for preparing our Turkey dinner. We could not have chosen a better place, menu or caterer for this event!

After the usual minutes and treasurer reports there was no old business. The slate of officers was presented and elected. There were no changes. Items from the Executive Meeting were discussed including some upcoming By-laws changes for next year. We will be cutting down the number of meetings to 6 including the Safari and the number of publications to 2 Newsletters and 1 Courier. Proposed locations for the meetings were presented and will be posted on the website as confirmed. Next year will be our 50th anniversary Dinner in April and will be on April 10th at the Spaghetti Warehouse. Special preparations will be made as well as special invitations. We talked about creating our own calendar and other fund raising ideas for next year. Alice Bader will be making a quilt that we will take chances on during the year and raffle in November. Bridge news was discussed including Newfield being open again after repairs. Our speaker was Don Airey who gave us an overview and update of the wheres, whats, whos and whens for the Blenheim replica.
