President Norman Burger, who was not present, had forwarded prices for new metal doors for the bake oven, which was brought from the Jonas Hotel and is being repaired. He said he found a source of new brick that appeared old. Premixed lime mortar is "very expensive," so he will look for some mix-your-own.
Betty Kunkle is working on planning for the quilt show to be held at Polk Township Firehouse on June 9.
The annual yard sale will be held May 10 and 11 at the Polk Township Municipal Building, Kresgeville.
