Because your secretary didnt take good notes, this


report is subject to correction. Richard will provide
a more authoritive listing later. But here is what
your editors notes seem to say:

Kathy Braun succeeded in getting three judges for


the competition. Getting judges is not an easy task.
Prints submitted for the competition will form the
basis for the next exhibit in the LM Welcome
Center.
The April 9 Business Meeting
Quite a lot of business was accomplished at the
business meeting.
For one thing we selected a president for 20152016, and, would you believe, it will be Richard
Yehl. He had done so much for the club, and will
continue to do so. He is a remarkable fellow.

reported that out bank balance is $2016. Dues for
next program year will be the same as before.
