7:05  Approve agenda for tonight; approve minutes from May: Anjala moves, Dennis seconds, all in favor. Add the note that we have a high volume b & w laser printer that Anjala bought and donated before – we think it may be in our storage space at Classic Foods. Mostly the printing fees we spend are copies of Luke’s monthly treasurer reports, and he also copies a bunch of holiday letters. We could get the printer to Luke’s house if he wants it but he prefers not to do that. Maija motioned to approve the additional note about the printer; no second but all approved
