  • We went to a lot of movies and really enjoyed them.

Treasurer’s Report

  • We have $2506.06
  • RE: bracelets, the website of the place we bought from before has changed but it looks to be the same company. We paid 440.00 for 1000 bracelets and got free shipping, that’s 44 cents each. Now the prices have changed so we can get 500 for 44 cents each or 1000 for 26 cents each. So we can get 1000 for $260 or 500 for $220. The total may vary a little depending on the exact options selected but this should be close. I recommend we get 1000 again at this time, they say 14 days lead time but I think we need to get going on this to make sure we have them before Pride.
  • This site has a lot more to offer now, but I think we need to do the bracelets now and we’ll look at other things in the future when we don’t need to rush so much.

Special Interest Groups Reports

Readers group

The reader’s group met earlier today, 18 May, 2008 at 12pm. The book discussed was As Meat Loves Salt by Maria McCann. Everyone enjoyed this historical novel set in 1640s Britain. The protagonist was well drawn and the plot, although it did slow down in parts, was interesting and involving. We recommend it.

The book for June is On Azrael’s Wings by D. Jordan Redhawk.

Writer’s group

The writer’s group is currently on hiatus due to no recent contributions.
