Joe opened the meeting at 2:30pm and welcomed everyone to the Spring Meeting.

After that Sarah Thompson from the Social Committee gave an overview of their events from the past year, including the Awards Luncheon and the Holiday Party.

Goodie Corriveau from the Program Committee spoke next and told members about past visits to the Visual Arts Center and art exhibits at the Hood Museum that the committee hosted. She went on to say that the committee also took time during the holiday season to gather volunteers together to write holiday cards for patients at the White River Jct. VA Hospital. Goodie reported that the Bake Sale at the Craft Fair was a big success as it completely sold out.

At this point Anthony Helm gave the Treasurers Report. He told members that the Craft Fair raised ---, with $760 dollars in expenditures for it. About $1,400 was spent on flowers and $75 for retirement gifts, he said. Anthony reported that scholarship awards were also made in the sum of $600 dollars. Anthony reported that the DCLSA raised approx. $9,000 and has spent approx. $7,000 dollars this year.

Julie McIntire presented an update from the Welfare Committee. She advised that the committee provided flowers for 2 births, 18 illnesses, and 12 deaths over the past year. Julie told member to let her know if anyone knows of or hears of anyone that should have an acknowledgement sent to them. She said that sometimes these gifts are missed because she didn't know something happened, so she asked everyone to let her know, even if you think everyone knows! She added that she didn't care if she is contacted a bunch of times about the same thing; she would rather have that happen rather than miss something.
