President Ruth Ann Taylor called the meeting to order. The invocation was given by Dr. Ray Quiett. The American flag salute was led by Gerri Stephens. “Happy Birthday” was sung by all to celebrate Dale Phlaum’s December birthday. Jack and Elizabeth Witherow’s anniversary was also celebrated with a song.
The October minutes were read by Secretary Pat Jarrett-Briley. In Bette Cole’s absence, President Ruth Ann read the treasurer’s report, reporting a $20 November meal ticket, a $50 United Way donation and a $50 donation to The Salvation Army, leaving a balance in the treasury of $268.03.
