The question was raised as to the amount paid speakers this year. Last year in-town speakers were paid $50 and those from out of town were paid $70. Betty B. moved that speakers from out of town be paid $75, leaving the in-town payment at $50. A second by Phyllis D. was followed by discussion and a vote. The motion passed.

Regarding the January 2013 meeting, members will submit a book title at the October meeting. The activity for January is a discussion of a good book or movie.
