The Treasurer, CJ Nemastil, was unable to attend, so there was no Treasurer’s report.

-Club shirts and caps:
An order form is on the website. Mark will discuss the possibility of club jackets with Chris Goodman.

Take your camera to Aladdin functions both to get photos and to identify Shriners with photography interests. Send photos to Frankie at The Lamp and ask her to indicate that they are by the Aladdin Shrine Photography Club.
