President Friedman convened a brief Board Meeting to consider a motion to approve of all actions undertaken for ACCLA by Officers and Board Members over the prior year. Their being a quorum of Board Members present, the motion was approved on a unanimous vote.
President Friedman then called for the installation of the newly elected Officers and Board, and turned over the gavel to incoming President Betty Eiseman.
President Eiseman's first act was to invite all present to partake in the Annual Holiday banquet. Lots of good food was enjoyed by all.
After the banquet, an auction was held under the auspices of Joe Tooma. The auction featured some 39 lots with items to please all types and tastes. Joe is planning on having the next auction in May or so.
