Myrene Hooved presided due to Mark Patton's absence. His holiday travels have been altered because of a wayward appendix.

Jack Cameron reported on who was there, make-ups and his usual info. Jim Peterson and Andreas had guests. Jack reported on Monday's gift wrapping at Coral Ridge Mall Monday afternoon/evening. $513 was raised through those efforts. His suggestion was we should try to schedule on Christmas Eve next year.

Randy Willman didn't have anyone in the news, but had the scoop on Santa Claus. Santa knows where all the bad girls live.
