Society Meeting for March 30

President Sheila Simmons opened the meeting and welcomed the 25 or so members present. She noted that this was our first meeting of 2016; January meetings over the past few years had been plagued with bad weather and low attendance and February 2016 coincided with freezing rain and very treacherous driving and walking conditions so was cancelled doe safety reasons. Welcome back!
