Our Annual General Meeting, held on November 19th, was a great success and many members were in attendance. We reviewed the past years events, finances and projection for 2020 and held elections for open board positions of President, Secretary and Newsletter & Publicity. These positions were filled by Brenda Lucas, Tina Pratt and Linda Rudachek respectively. After conclusion of business we all participated in creating a Christmas centerpiece in a teacup and saucer. This floral craft was complimentary to our members. All instruction was provided by Pat Roberts of the St. James Floral Arrangers. Thanks to all who provided dainties for our hospitality table.
