Former treasurer Juanita Latimer presented Grantham with a gift certificate and a book from members in appreciation for her two years of service. Club Librarian Paula Miley Kelly then returned 2017 books to members, and events chairman Theresa Dendinger gave an update on the May outing to the West Baton Rouge Museum.
After the meeting was adjourned, historian Sharlet Wax gave a brief history of the club from its organization in 1965 until 2004.
