   C. Treasurer's Report    Evelyn Van Orden for Cindy Vogel, Treasurer
        1. Evelyn reported that the balance in our treasury is still $914.24 (plus interest).
    D. Philanthropy Report    Judy Gregory, VP Philanthropy 
        1. Judy reported that a shipment went out from Afghans for Afghanistan. There were 3000 items in the shipment, over 500 of them sweaters. They are currently waiting to hear about the next campaign. She reminded us that all items for this group need to be wool.    
        2. Jerri Thomson explained the Knots of Love program, since there had been some questions. Each box of 25 caps costs $11.78 to pack & ship. They send an average of 1 box every 8 weeks to each of the 350 cancer facility they support.  As well as hat donations, they received their first quarterly check this past week for $287 from Ralphs. This is a program that anyone with a Ralphs card can sign up for. You can go to the Knots of Love website, look under What’s New and Events and look for the Ralphs Community Contribution program. A percentage of what is spent at Ralphs will then be presented to this organization. She reminded us that a new program, the Drive for Veterans has a separate hat pattern and donation form. Jerri handed out new Knots of Love Brochures.
        3. Betty Molinaro is collecting for Christ Child Society, and will be turning in the items in the next month.
        4. Evelyn explained that any new charity is welcome. The member interested in that charity just has to take responsibility for explaining their story and any rules, collecting and providing feedback.
    E. Announcements
        1. There were a couple questions regarding the timing of the Meeting Minutes showing up on the website. It would be helpful to have them up earlier than the week of the meeting in case there are events or announcements. Evelyn explained that she currently gets them up prior to the meeting reminder going out because she sets some time aside to handle both item. She will try to get them up earlier. Mary Jamora volunteered herself and Kathy Fogel to help out if Evelyn needed help in the future.
        2.  A question was raised regarding any information of the Tom Hamilton Scholarship Fund. Evelyn reported that Marsha is still awaiting a response.
        3. Two new members were introduced and welcomed. Karin Igoyan found the information regarding JCK in the Glendale Newspapers, and Goharik Prior was brought to the group through her friend and current member, Irene Rezaie. They were both interested in the charity work JCK is involved in.
        4. Janice brought in a flyer for the Hyperbolic Reef she has been contributing to. It will be exhibited at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena from June 7–August 21, 2011.
    F. Break
       
1. Members helped themselves to a variety of donated yarn, magazines, and patterns while enjoying the delicious treats!
