NEW BUSINESS: Becky moved to give membership fee to Ricky and Shay in return for the wonderful job they do with mowing and plowing. Sabrina seconded the motion and it passed unanimously.
We discussed the rescheduling of th April playday which was cancelled due to rain. After much discussion, Pat motioned to set it for June 10. The motion was seconded by Kathy and passed unanimously.
