Unfinished Business

A.  The Lincoln Sesquicentennial, July 4, 5 & 6.  Our pavilion will be set up across the street from Mike Hare Field.  That is where the club display of Mozarkite will be.  Anyone who wants to be a vendor should contact the president or Kelly Blum so arrangements can be made for them.  There will not be room for vendor displays with the club display.

New Business

Dee Dickson’s daughter, Robin, applied for the Harms Scholarship.  A motion was made by Anita, seconded by Larry, to award Robin a $500 scholarship.  Motion carried.

The Mozarkite Society was again invited to have a booth at the Missouri Sate Fair by Hylan Beydler.  She wanted a response by June 6 to confirm our participation.  Joyce said she’d send the confirmation.


Refreshments were provided by Pam and Renee this meeting.  Next month is the annual family picnic at the Jenny Janes park in Pavilion #3.  Thanks to Larry for reserving the pavilion for us.

There being no further business, the meeting closed in due form.
