• The NW Regional Conference will be
held June 28-July 1 in Spearfish SD. Our state president, Sally,
would like our help.
• We were congratulated for having our
state website recertified. Congrats to our webmaster, Angie Kalthoff!
We have $3,339 in our account for
Backpack Feed and Read, which means 1,000 children will be getting
books in December. Awesome!
Is there any interest in having varied
meeting times? We will try to have a Saturday morning meeting and
see how that goes.
Connie received an email from the state
president requesting data (how many attended overall conference,
breakout sessions, etc.) from our conference in April.
Thankfully, Virjean still had some of that info. We thought it
was a little late to be asking for that kind of data, but Virjean had
it! We were also requested to return money from the conference to state
DKG. We are confused by this request. We can understand
asking for the seed money back, but anything beyond that should be our
profit. And we have already dispersed to the profit to Read and
Feed, etc. Connie will ask for clarification.
Katie Johnson will be teaching a class
(via the North Mankato Library) December 1st. Folks will
make a kissing ball. Cost is $35. Sign up at the library.
Saturday, November 5 at the Emmy Frentz
Topic: Mankato Symphony
Orchestra. We will have the opportunity to purchase tickets for
the November 13th performance at a discount.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:05 PM.
A presentation from the owner of the
CuriosiTea House followed.
