President's Report
- I'm sorry I wasn't at the meeting last week. The timing was off.
- Br. Williams, here's your membership card. You now have a national bond number.
- I will start working on getting Dr. Das' to him. I think I can get his new address off the University's website.
- Group pictures are being taken right now. I'm going to try to schedule them for some Tuesday after dinner.
- This Tuesday, Dr. Apanasov will be coming over and making beef stroganoff. I'll call him tomorrow and see who's buying the supplies. We'll then be having a discussion of civil freedoms afterwards. This will be from the perspective of someone who lived in Russia during the cold war.

    - I'll pass the signup sheet around.
    - Does anyone have access to a balance? No. I'll talk to the Open House committee.
