Bryan Hunt is willing to be a treasurer. If not this year, then next.
Sunny suggested an event to communicate first responder telling us how to deal with a scene. Or we help them with their drills. Battleys did a first responder's day. Ed suggested motorcycle safety ad on trucks or signs at the fire stations.
Mark Richter will look into Maryland's proposal for HOT lanes and come back with a suggestion for a club response.

Adding the calendar example
An idea for an article for the web site: subscribing to the club calendar on an iPhone or an Android. Loading google calendar app works.

Karen reported the club currently has 363 members, representing 350 households.

Report of the Elections Committee

The slate of officers ran unopposed and were duly elected via ballots submitted by email and postal mail. The Treasurer position remains vacant, although there were write-in votes cast for Treasurer.
