1) no old business
1) Gloria reviewed the following:
a) The Grange made a gift of the building to the Historical Society.
Work has begun on the transfer of ownership of the land the Grange sits upon. Jack
Benjamin has decided to give the land to the Historical Society. All of the required paperwork
has been forwarded to his lawyer & we are hopeful it will be all settled swiftly.
c) Our provisional Charter expires in 2020. We will now apply for an Absolute Charter. We
will present documentation showing our growth.

ideas & possibilites to be explored as we take these steps forward.
