Concluding the program, each member was presented a heart shaped box of chocolates.  Sharon Lewton, President, presided over the business meeting.

It was announced dues for the year need to be paid to Teresa Wenzel, treasurer, before March first.  Members volunteered salads for the funeral dinner of Fred Kohl.  4 x 6 photographs taken at the January Founders’ Day Meeting of members in their aprons were distributed.
