The meeting was called to order by President Faye Davis, who led the Pledge of Allegiance. 8 new members were introduced. 


Faye reminded members that notice of future meetings can be found in The Villages Recreation & Parks publication on the Thursday prior to each meeting.  Minutes and other Club news can be found at the Club web site: www.TheVillagesNursesClub.com.


Faye introduced Marilyn Lanzone, and thanked her and those who assisted her, for the Christmas celebration.


Snacks for the February meeting are to be provided by members whose last names begin with P, Q, R, & S.  They are requested to provide snacks for 10-15 people.


The financial report is unchanged from the November meeting.  50/50 raffle money has totaled $515 so far this season. Our goal is to repeat last year’s award of $1500.00.


Election of officers for the 2018-2019 year is scheduled for April. People wishing to suggest names for nomination are requested to speak with Marilyn Lanzone and Vicki DeShaw. Positions are available for Vice President and 2 members-at-large.  Installation will occur during the May celebration.
