A scholarship brochure has been developed.

Discussion regarding a Canadian Museum of Human Rights subsidy of 50% or a subsidy towards a Heritage Group November Celebration was deferred.

May Wind-up

The entrance fee at the Human Rights Museum ($13.60 per person) can be used as part payment for a membership. Those who already have memberships should let us know they will be attending. It is suggested that we arrive at 9:45 a.m. for the 10 a.m. tour (approx one and one half hours). As to lunch, those who plan to attend should check the restaurants on the blog by April. There is a survey to be filled out to determine the choice of restaurant.

Historical Artifacts Proposal

The proposal was sent to David Rew, who passed it on to Patty Johanson; however, the response was very disappointing .

NEW BUSINESS
