Claude is going to purchase 4 additional ceiling fans. Greg will install them. Pat McCullough donated a very large floor fan. In addition, Greg proposed that the club purchase 2 portable A/C units.

Greg announced that Rodney Holmes will be the DJ for our Christmas Party which will allow our 4 club DJ's to attend and enjoy the festivities. We will need to pay for a motel room for Rodney. Linda McAlister moved with a second from Sylvia Anders to pay for accommodations for Rodney. The motion passed.
