 h. The website is coming along. The upper left corner needed a logo so Roger Appleton has painted a logo for the club on canvas, which was then photographed. Skip Mundy will work on sharpening the image. If we are changing our logo does the entire club need to vote on it? There may be some copy write problems that need to be looked into.
