Approved the KANZA Chapter 2nd half of the 2009 meeting schedule:


June 23 the reposed schedule (shown below) was mailed out to the board & officers (listed above) for discussion & then a vote. This took a couple of weeks do to a busy summer and trying to get time on our computers, several members were in and out from their homes, but the KANZA Board has approved the 2nd half of the 2009 meeting schedule.


There were corrections on the parks name 6-24. Our first actual approved comment was casted on the June 27th – Marilyn. Don said this sounded good to him. No other comments were coming in. 7-4-09 Ted “I would make a making a motion that we accept the meting schedule as presented.” Glenn “I’ll second the motion.” All in favor: Glenn “I”, Pat “I”, Alicia “I”, Lauranell “I”, Maryilyn “I” – so it passed on the 7-7-09 with 5 votes. the host list was dropped from the voting as time went on, we needed a schedule first.
