The minutes of the previous meeting were read and Vic Ingram made the motion to accept the minutes and this was seconded by Don Jones. The minutes were approved. John Davis gave the corporation financial report and there is $1586.00 in the account. Don Jones made the motion to accept the report and this was seconded by Bob Bend. The report was approved.

The commission held a blood drive and we collected 3 pints of blood. There will be blood drives on May 9, and July 25. Steve Kreitzer of Sycamore VFW in conjunction with the 40/8 and Jewel-Osco collected food and necessities for troops. He helped collect 12 large banana boxes full of food and necessities and $220 in cash. Herb Holderman said that the doll house may be finished by mid-May if things keep going well. Don Jones asked questions about the by-laws of the commission and there was much discussion on this subject. He will get an updated set of by-laws. The sequester is not hurting the commission as yet.
