Laws and Regulations Chair Phil Bonafide passed out copies of our amended policies and procedures along with the Standard Form for Club Bylaws from International. He hopes that everyone will take the time to review the material and make suggestions for changes so that we may include every necessary change.

Steve Loughlin presented Pres. Larry Murphy a certificate from Laconia Little League in recognition of our club's donation for their capital campaign to build the new field building.

Dianne Roberts, Jim Fortier, Russ Beane, Carroll Stafford, Nancy Williams, and Phil Bonafide are running for four Directors positions; Chet Cilley will be looking for reelection as Treasurer; and going for another term as Second Vice President is none other than overachiever Paul Cotton; Warren Mitchell for First Vice President; and Joe Collie for President.

Sr. Member Roger Webster, recently returned from Arizona, reports that Past Lt. Gov. Leo and Claire Sasseville are alive and well. Leo is keeping busy with the Boy Scouts and is doing fire inspections for Sun City.

Guest Speaker
Sr. Member Ed Merski introduced Heritage Resource Specialist Karl G. Roenke, U.S.D.A. Forest Service, White Mountain National Forest, to the club. The White Mtn. National Forest, 800 acres, was established in 1918 when it was purchased from private owners. Roenke's slide presentation outlined their archaeological efforts in the area where they search old homesteads and cellar holes for relics dating back to Paleo-Indian times. One of their ongoing excavations is at the Colbath House off the Kancamaugus Highway.
