Russell McClain noted that Jo Ann Smith had not spoken for the band
and this reference was corrected in the minutes. He suggested that
the PTO might be interested in moving and cleaning chairs and
tables or that we might contact someone else associated with the
band. Russ also noted that he would make his timeshare available if
the K. A. A. would pay his $250 maintenance fee for the time share.
This was added to the minutes. The minutes were then approved. [M/s
