Roger Miller had an announcement concerning the MCL. He wanted everyone to be aware that their business hasn’t been as lucrative as in the past and it could be a sign of them closing. His suggestion was for everyone to be thinking about where the club could meet, if this should happen. The prices have gone up, there’s not the variety, as in the past and the restaurant has changed managers several times in the past year. We don’t know if it will close but Roger thought we should be aware that it could and that its very important, for the club to continue meeting every month, to keep us connected. Bill Erdes made the motion to adjourn the meeting and Jim Courtney seconded the motion. President, Tim Lange Secretary, Marlene Peterson
