Meeting on June 11th was a potluck at Candy Klee's.  Thank you for hosting the group, Candy. Nine members were present to enjoy food and conversation. Short business meeting was led by president Sue Anna. Topics covered were: basket to be sent to IOLI for raffle, cancel July meeting, website up and domain name purchased by Barbara's brother (Tom Hansen is donating his time and $10 fee to our group).  Pictures are welcome to supplement what is online now.
