The program for the day, “What’s happening at the state level of Kansas?” was presented by Carol Cramer. She started with the opening of the legislative session in January and naming some of the topics on the docket. She also named the representatives of the districts. Not willing to have a political debate, Cramer mentioned other happenings around the state like the restoration of the Bowerstock Dam and the building of the Rock Chalk Park in Lawrence, the mislanding of a 747 cargo plane at the wrong airport in Wichita, and a KU professor’s proof that Kansas is not the flattest state in the union. (It’s the seventh flattest.) Cramer ended the program with a description of her tour of the newly renovated Kansas Capitol building with newspaper pictures plus her own.
Thirteen members answered roll call.
Election of officers for the 2014-2015 year was an item on the agenda. A motion was made to move up the present vice president, secretary and treasurer to the next level of president, vice president and secretary. The motion was seconded and passed. Flo Lyon was elected treasurer by secret ballot.
The meeting adjourned for refreshments served by hostess Hopkins and co-hostess Ellen Nice. The next meeting will be April 15 at the home of Barbara Saner.
