MEETING MINUTES - MARCH 11, 2004
The monthly meeting for March was held on the 11th at the Woburn Elks Club. In attendance were Joe & Janice LeBlanc, Mike Burgess, Nels Anderson, Mike Nadeau, Paul Seeberg, Gene Belinski, Steve Devine, Eric & Ronellen Gagnon, Denise Thorpe, Barbara Day and Doug Snook.
This is what was discussed:
Two (2) amendments to the Bylaws were passed -
(1) Article II, Section 2. This article previously read; "the president, two Vice-presidents", it will now read; "the president, one Vice-president". (We voted to eliminate one vice-president)
(2) Article XII, Section 1. This article previously read; "shall be held on the fourth Monday", it will now read; "shall be held on the second Thursday". (We voted so that the words match our meeting day)
Steve Devine resigned as a director.
Below are the Officers for the 2004-2005 that were voted in at the meeting:
