After lunch some business was attended to.
Howard Harvey gave the Treasurer's report in which he reminded everyone that he does not handle money, he just does the accounting. He noted that Lachine West MOW provides meals at $2.00 each, the deficit being made up by donations from Lachine government and business organizations. He also noted that some $900 was donated to Summerlea church in recognition of their providing space and facilities for Meals on Wheels.

Note the candle, made from ice by Mrs. Spangl.
