May 5, 2015 Meeting Minutes
Twenty-two members of DKG met at 5:30 p.m. at Good Counsel in Mankato.
After a delicious light meal, the meeting was called to order at 6:07
by president Barb Muellerleile. Minutes of the last meeting were
approved after a motion by Charlotte Pugh, seconded by Beth
Christensen. The treasurer’s report had been emailed earlier in the
day. It was noted by Barb that seed money for next year’s convention
has been received. Also, members can log onto the DKG national website
by using the six digits on their membership cards or their mailings, to
print out informational items about DKG for prospective members, etc.
We noted our thanks to the officers who are completing their terms in
office and for all the work they have done for us. Also, thanks to the
members who will be our new officers for 2015-17.
In old business, the April luncheon/fundraiser was discussed. Everyone
agreed it was a successful event and had a good menu supplied by the
Pathstone caterers. Next year it will be held April 3, at a new
location: Hosanna Lutheran Church. The people there planned to charge
an $80 fee for using their site, but we typically pay $100.
Members present had the opportunity to update their directory
information. If you need to make changes in your address, email
address, phone number, etc., please send those changes to Virjean
[firstname.lastname@example.org] before August 15.
Beth made a motion to adjourn the meeting at 6:25, seconded by Sybil
We toured the beautiful chapel and enjoyed several wonderful musical
selections on the large, historic organ. Then we walked to the
woodworking building and looked at the lovely creations made there.
