President’s Report:

Scott gave a  recap from the annual Ocean City Convention.  It was very successful and great time was had by all. We had more members attend this year, but would still like to have better participation from Roost 115 for next year and better showing in the parade. The parade is a big deal and a great opportunity to promote our Roost.  We will have convention planning committees for next year. 

 Two new by-laws are up for review, more info to come.

 Treasurer’s Report:

No balance given due to expenses still being paid for the golf outing, will be reported in the July meeting.
