President’s report-Peggy Neely-She wished everyone who is leaving a safe trip home.

Vice President’s report-Anne Osgood-The list of the officers of the Activities Committee and the heads of some of the activities in the 2019 Directory is not up to date. Therefore, if there are any new officers or chairpersons of an activity/club, please let Anne know. She is updating the list for 2019-2020. She plans to make copies available to pass out with the next newsletter. In order to have the most up to date list in the current directory, the next new directory will go to press in April 2020 and be available in the summer of 2020. That will make it possible to include any changes for 2020-2021.
