Legislative Advocate Nancy Fortman had information available about websites for new teachers. Personal Growth and Services Chair Karen Steffan and her committee presented options to the membership for a social day during the summer. The group decided to attend the Allen County Museum in Lima.
Under new business, the telephone/e-mail chain will be adjusted. Cards will be sent to some of the members who were not able to attend.
An initiation ceremony was conducted for new member Jenny von der Embse.
A 50/50 raffle was held with half of the proceeds going to the Putnam County District Library. Members who won include third-place winner Kathe Roof, second-place winner Pat Kaple and first-place winner Judy Newell. Door prize winners include Pat Kaple, Anne Hemker, Judy Ruen, Marilyn Thomas, Judy Newell, and Karen Steffan.
Members made bracelets under the direction of Charlotte Ellis and Carol Schortgen. Each lady was able to assemble a crystal and red and silver beaded bracelet.
The group then enjoyed a delicious meal prepared by the ladies of the Presbyterian Church.
Members from Putnam County attending the meeting include Marcia Barnhart, Linda Basinger, Lois Baxter, Deb Company, Helen Devitt, Charlotte Ellis, Catherine Heitz, Anne Hemker, Mary Lou Hoffman, Pat Kaple, Janis Lentz, Judy Newell, Karen Okuley, Mary Recker, Marsha Reth, Mary Lou Rieman, Kathe Roof, Judy Ruen, Carol Schortgen, Karen Steffan, Marilyn Thomas, Jenny von der Embse and Diana Wehri.
