3. Memorial for Len Weis: Work still underway by Peter and Jan regarding a memorial for Len at the Weis Earth Sciences Center.  A wooden plaque of approximately 9”x12”, engraved and with labradorite and quotes from Len’s writings would be about $110.00. Alternatively, a plexi-glass hanging of approximately 18”x20” with lettering and quotes from Len would be about $236-$350. One more pricing quote is pending.  Comments: over $100 pricing would be out of tradition. But we should call out that this is a special case because Len was a founding member of the club and brought many of the current members in.
Motion: Approved the concept and expenditure for the Plexi-glass memorial.
4. Money in Treasury:  
a. No update on work for Magical Mystery Tour. Amy needs to recruit team to work on this (Jan, Leota, Irene, Al – all potential team members identified earlier).
b. Mary and Janet are to check into other options such as donations and report back.
