On May 30, we held our first meeting of the year. We voted on keeping the same slate of officers for 2019. Members shared things they plan to do this year.
We plan on giving toward the scholarship fund. We have a lot of plans for only two active members.
Members and a guest met at the Family Restaurant in Rice Lake. We decided on donations for the year.

We collected four bags of aluminum cans and took school supplies to OLS to sell. School supplies were taken to Embrace as well. We gave boxes of clothes to Lighthouse for Homeless.
Two members worked at Mana Meal at the Lutheran Church where 92 meals were served. They helped prepare, serve, and clean up.
