OLD BUSINESS

The Library Ladies graciously thanked the board for their Christmas bonuses.

Election paperwork has been filed. Hildebrandt will be running for a 6 year term, Worrell 4 year and Sara Luna 2 years. Borowczyk's 6 year term is up for grabs so a coin toss between Cromwell & Bramel was held since they came onto the board at the same time. Cromwell won the 6 year term so Bramel will have a 2 year run.
