Bill B. discussed the archives and mentioned some damage that has been done. He is negotiating for a local person to be in charge. Bob Scales is investigating a computer program so that all the records may be filed.

A change in the By-Laws was suggested, in the hope that new members to the Board would be attracted. No action was taken.

The meeting was adjourned.
