Committee Reports:

Kids Club: Anita was unable to attend the meeting.  No report.
Field Trip:  Kelly suggested a field trip to Elise Keith’s.  Ms. Keith had a foundation for a earth-contact home dug and she told Kelly there were a lot of rocks, maybe some Mozarkite if club members would like to come look.  Kelly will get in touch with Ms. Keith to determine when it would be convenient.  Contact Kelly for that information if you want to go.
Programs: No report
Show Committee: Kelly said we need to make sure we get our advertising to the appropriate magazines early to be sure to get our 2020 show listed.

Unfinished Business

            Joyce needs to get a headcount of members and their families who are coming to the Holiday Party, December 14 at 6:30pm.  Please contact her and let her know how many you will be bringing so she can order the correct quantity of meat. 

New Business


Joyce said she’d been contacted by the school counsellor from Warsaw asking us to be sure to submit scholarship applications for seniors graduating in 2020.  Although she’d had a computer failure, she was able to retrieve the form to send.
            Kelly reported he’d spoken to members of the Pettis County Archeological Society and they said their membership had seriously declined.  They asked about the possibility of combining their club with ours.  They wanted to speak to the Pettis County Historical Society first but wanted to broach the subject as a back-up plan.



Refreshments for this meeting were provided by Diane.  November refreshments will be provided by the Parsons.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned.
