New officers were elected and installed. Four members completed the Members class that included an on-line program and other assignments to learn more about the workings of the society.

Amendments to the Chapter By-Laws were submitted and will be voted on at the June meeting.

The chapter will conduct further recognition of Claire at a future meeting. Earlier in the year member, Mary Meyer, presented pins and certificates honoring a group of Seabees who served in the Vietnam War. Future presentations are being planned by Commemorative Events Chairman, Pam Johnson.
