Our Lady of Lourdes Altar Society meets, votes on changes

Our Lady of Lourdes Altar Society met at 7 p.m. March 17.

President Lillian Berger called the meeting to order.

The Rev. Celestino Say opened with a prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.

Berger welcomed all members and guest Geralyn Biediger. All reports were read and approved.

Bylaws committee consisting of Monica Huddleston, Jo Ann Lau and Helen John met and reported the committee suggested two changes. An officer missing more than three meetings should be asked to resign.

A notification will be published in the bulletin before the next altar society meeting, and the bylaws change will be voted on. The other suggestion was to raise the annual dues for the altar society. This suggestion was tabled at this time.
