The senior board meeting was called to order at 9:35 a.m. by Betty.


All the board members, Melissa and Mary.


The minutes of the March 8, 2012 meeting were read and approved by Layton, second by Fran.

Old Business

Melissa composed a letter to be sent to the Director of Catholic Family Services with regards to the displeasure of the lunches served at the Vernon Nutrition Center.

The board approved the letter, and it will be sent as written.

In order to extend programs at the center, it was suggested that a fee of $2.00 be charged at the center for patrons wanting to take the classes. This will defray the cost given to the instructor.

With regards to the Vernon Spring Luncheon, Layton looked into the best room at Minerals at Crystal Springs to accommodate the affair. The room that was chosen is the Diamond Room.

The Vernon Spring Luncheon is for Vernon residents only. If people outside of Vernon wish to attend the luncheon, they would have to pay the full price of $25.00.

With no other business to come before the board, a motion was made to close the meeting by Layton, seconded by Fran at 10:45 a.m.

Next meeting will be May 10, 2012.

Respectfully submitted, Marilyn Turansky, Secretary
