WAYS AND MEANS - Jackie Case reported that the Queen of Hearts raffle would conclude tonight. Tickets will be 3 for $5.00, and the pot should be close to $800 to be split between the winner and the club.

SUNSHINE - Lora Starr reported that a sympathy card was sent to Wayne Pittman whose brother passed away. A Get Well card was sent to Butch Connor. Lora read two thank you cards, one from Mike Edwards and the other from LaVerne Mozingo. Lora was so happy to report that last Sunday, September 1, 2019 a true miracle happened when we all saw Doris and Jim dancing on the new dance floor. Congratulations to Jim for his awesome recovery.

OLD BUSINESS - Greg needs either money or tickets for Fun Monday Tickets tonight, as the money must be mailed tomorrow.

NEW BUSINESS - Rich Meyer has been appointed as the Nominating Committee Chairperson.

Monte Starr made a short statement thanking Tanya Twichell, Jackie Case, Homer Ray, Ann Brinson, and Patricia Lyon, for serving on the Bylaws Committee. He told the membership that the committee had invested approximately 120 hours, read and studied 7 other shag club bylaws to compose our proposed bylaws.

The members who had not voted on the bylaws were urged to do so at that point. Jackie Miraya reported that 77 members checked in with her, 39 members voted YES, 37 members voted NO. Discrepancy of 1 vote. Since there was not a 2/3 majority of members present, which would be 51, the old bylaws stand.

There being no further business, the meeting was adjourned at 6:23 pm.

Respectfully submitted,
Patricia Lyon, Secretary
