Business was conducted and a new vice president, Grace Sutherland, was elected. Madeline Gemmell retired from the duties of secretary after 12 years. Hannah thanked her for her work and commitment to the post. Four new committee were proposed and Madeline Gemmell, Marie Wilson, Margaret Brown and Mary Gemmell accepted.
