The minutes of the October meeting were approved as read.

Don gave the Treasurer’s report. $500 was returned by Sharing Hands since they did not use it for their project. We received $841 from the Benton Community Foundation which was interest on our earnings. We will be receiving a check from Georgia-Pacific for $1,500.

A presentation to the Chamber will be done next year, since they have donated $1,000 already this year.
