President Tim Echternach called the meeting to order.
Jan Barry gave a prayer blessing the food.
Guests were introduced included: Tim Dollins, Governor of the Year; Don Gentry, Treasurer of MOKAN federation; Linda Gentry, International Cosmo of the Year; Jim Owen from the Breakfast Club; Dean Barry from the Breakfast Club; Phil Hanson, past International President; and David House, Executive Director of Cosmopolitan International.
David House was our speaker.  He gave an update on the public relations team.  This team is working on a presentation for the fall that will hopefully attract millennials.  We need spread the word better to younger people to join Cosmopolitans.   
He also discussed Club Runner and plans to start another alternative for a much cheaper rate.
He then presented Awards and pens to many of our members and guests.  The last award was to Judy Weitkemper: past international president pin, a plaque with gavel and life membership.  Judy thanked everyone.
