Minutes of Our March Meeting:
Thursday, March 27, 2014

Twenty-two members met at the Crossview Covenant Church at 5:30 p.m.  After a delicious potluck meal, the meeting was called to order by president Barb Muellerleile. The minutes from November 7 were approved. The treasurer’s report was distributed and approved.
Barb will be attending the Tau state meeting in Duluth April 26-27.

Beth spoke about the upcoming luncheon on March 30. It has become a popular event, with 120 tickets sold and the profit going to the Backpack Food Program. Helpers for the silent auction are Bonnie, Grace and Shirley. The North Mankato Community Read has also been a hit, with 500 books being given out the first week.

On April 10 we will meet at Children’s House in Wiecking Center at 5:30. After that, we will walk across the street to attend the performance of “The Drowsy Chaperon.” The deadline for tickets ($19 each) is April 3. Contact Alice DiMeglio if you would like to attend.
On May 15 we have an author, William Kent Kruger, speaking at the North Mankato police annex. We will meet first at 5 p.m. and he will speak later.

Virjean mentioned the 2014 International Convention in Indianapolis, to be held July 28-August 4. If members are interested in attending, and would desire some financial help to do so, they should write a short paragraph about it, and submit it to Barb Muellerleile by May 15. Motion by Virjean, seconded by Sybil, for a maximum of three ladies for $250 each. Passed.

The meeting was adjourned at 6:55 p.m.
