The 40th anniversary of the DCLSA is upon us. Should we have a party? What about a number of activities over a period a days? This matter will be discussed further at the next meeting.

Should we or should we not have a Halloween Party? If we do, where should it be held? The cost of prizes will be lowered to chocolate from Lindt, pumpkins, and bags of apples. And we should also think about having a separate contest of the children who attend.
