There were 28 members in attendance today with Les & Mindy visiting from the Aktion Club. Tom H. reported a can deposit of $41.00. Hollie reported that there was an Aktion Club meeting last Monday and that they received a nice thank you from GC Elementary School Nurse Mary Pedersen for the donation of the hats and mittens.

Bob Schwarzkopf had the program today. He invited Cherie Cerveny, director of the Greene County Early Learning Center to update us on their operation. Cherie has been the director for the last 9 years, and they employ 11 full-time and 6 part-time employees. They have an enrollment of 98 children with 20 on a waiting list. Children in the day care program participated in the following field trips this year: Swimming, Blank Park Zoo, Greene County Fair, and Bell Tower. Their age groups include:

Turtle – age 6 weeks to 12 months
Ducks – age 12 months to 24 months
Frog – 2 years to 3 years
Caterpillars – 3 years to 1st day of Kindergarten

Thanks to Bob and Cherie for the update!
