Mail:  President Tim Echternach gave a report on mail received.  Great Circle had a form requesting funds in the amount of $500.00.  No action was taken on the request at this time.  We also received a thank you note from the Food Bank.
Diabetes Center:  Tim wants to meet with them to see about setting up a table during November for National Diabetes Awareness month.  November 14th is National Diabetes Day and the board agreed we should do something special on that day, including having information on Cosmopolitan Clubs.
