Birthdays were celebrated by Bea Emules, Barbara Hart, Rosalie Logue, Jeanette Nord, Kathy Smith, Carol Williams, Dick Williams and Dorothy Lindstrom, eldest in attendance. Eleanor and Everett King and Barbara and Duane Thorpe celebrated anniversaries.
Following dinner, a memorial service was conducted to honor those who passed away in the last year. Pauline Edsall read "Life Is But a Stopping Place" and candles were lit to honor Sandy James, Bob Johnston, Judy LeFebvre, Mike Emules Jr. and Arlene LaBarbera.
A business meeting followed. A chicken barbecue is planned for July. Price will be $7 per person. Reservations must be made and dinners paid for at the June meeting. If paid reservations are not made in advance, those attending without a reservation may not get a meal. Instead of music entertainment, the group decided to have a Chinese auction.
