Roll was called by Zeda Woods with nine members and one visitor present with a total of 138 volunteer hours. The minutes from the last meeting were read by Margaret Ratliff and approved. In absence of health leader, Harley Ann Thorne passed out the health report on "Do You Need a Specialist in Aging?" Pat Williams gave the garden report on mulching and talked about flowers for this time of year and how to take care of them. Harley Ann Thorne gave an Environmental report on Launching of Balloons. All reports were very informative. The business of the meeting included: reminders for the next council meeting on July 3 at the regular time; the upcoming fair in August scheduled for August 12-17, and to think about the day we are to work; a list of upcoming events for the club; and a reminder for baby blankets for the children's hospital.
