Joint Meeting April 15, 2008
The meeting was called to order at 7:30pm by President Arsene Van Vooren at the Barrister House. A roll call of Officers and Board members
showed all present except Bob Grant, Bill Meldrum, Greg Silage, Al DeBacker, John Roelandt and Etienne Elskens. A motion was made and supported to end the regular order of business.
President Van Vooren apologized to the membership for the errors in the bulletin. He was responsible for getting the bulletin out this month.
He congratulated Larry Mahieu and Oscar Vercruysse for the success of their
concert on April 12th. Oscar then thanked the membership for their support to make it a success.
Entertainment Chairman Norm Kay
reviewed all of the upcoming events for the summer and announced that he was giving starting times for the June golf outing. Norm also
reported that Leo Lamote, Joe Allemon and Ted Monahan were on the sick list and that Ernie DeBaene was now home from the hospital.

17th of this month. Congratulations to all and wishes for many more!!
