Commodities Report: Was wonderful… Not a big turn out, b/c of weather. Have leftovers that we are trying to give away.
All wreaths haven been taken down and stored by Larry A.
Pistol Raffle Discussion: CA resident does not qualify to receive gun raffle… Denis and Charley will research the new laws and find an answer and report back. We still need to track down beneficiaries of the raffle. Folks believe that RYLA, Imagination Library, and Scholarships are the beneficiaries ($1,550 ea.), and that confirmation is likely in one of the May 2016 meeting notes.
