Sept. 15, 2015 Meeting Minutes
Twenty members of DKG met at 5:00 p.m. at the new Children’s Museum of Southern Minnesota, for a tour of the wonderful facility. The group then moved to the police annex of North Mankato.
We started the meeting with a book drawing, followed by our meal and meeting. At 6:40 the meeting was called to order by new president Connie Biehn. There were no additions to the agenda. Connie thanked everyone for their help in setting up this meeting and future meetings. She attended several planning meetings for the state conference coming up in April. Susan Moore reported on the state of our treasury. We still have two accounts: checking and a money market, used for grant-in-aid, which can be awarded to pre-service education majors. Our balance currently in checking is $3175.19 and we have $4644.88 in scholarship money for our own members.
Beth Christensen has worked on our meetings for this year. These meetings will be posted on our website. <http://www.deltakappagamma.org/MN-nu/>
