Call to Order- The meeting was called to order by Vice President Bob Stoltze Jr.

New Business-
·       Daryl Reffitt is beginning the second Cub Scout troop in Crawford County. The Boy Scouts of America (BSA) requires that new troops have "charter organizations" which host troop meetings, have a Chartered Organization Representative who may serve on the scouts' Council, and receive supplemental insurance.
It was moved by Bill Magill, seconded by Kevin Clausen to agree that St. John Lutheran sponsor the Cub Scout Troop, motion carried. President Bill Magill signed the Troop's charter and Ted Mallory volunteered to serve as the Chartered Organization Representative and Committee Chairman (nominal positions).

Respectfully submitted by,
Ted Mallory
