Minutes of the First Meeting of the Book Club

At 4 PM on October 12, 2007 the first meeting of the Book Club was held in the bar of the Fort Young Hotel. Attending this meeting were Jen Miller and Chris Lawrence (who really doesn't like to read much but came because I asked her and she is my friend). The meeting began promptly at 4 PM and Officers were elected. Chris Lawrence was nominated to the esteemed position of Lofty Matron of Unread Books (LMUB) Jen Miller was nominated to a temporary position of Recording Secretary and Honorable Matron of the Slippery Land (HMSL).

Refreshments were served.

New Business: It was decided that should anyone be interested in a Book Club other than the LMUB and the HMSL, they should step up and arrange the next meeting. This motion was passed by acclaim.

Refreshments continued.

Old Business: None.

Admiration for the plantings in the bar were expressed by one member, and another member offered that she had occasionally pinched a start off the plants here.

Refreshment concluded.

The meeting was adjourned at 4:45 PM by unanimous vote.

Meeting notes respectfully submitted by Jen Miller, HMSL and Temporary Recording Secretary.

"As one who arrived at 4.50 and missed the esteemed meeting I would like to make my apologies for following Dominican time! I wandered around making enquiries for fifteen minutes when the barman suggested that the meeting that I was looking for might have been the two white ladies huddled under a plant in the bar who left "just now" I understand that none of the other three potential members I had recruited turned up all being diverted by mysterious circumstances like " Oh God is that the time?" " Sorry the children needed feeding" " I'm in bed something bit me in the garden..."
