Wally asked if anyone wants to keep Chapter 34 going or otherwise it will be inactive. The turn out today is not good and we were to have a plow day. The problem with Chapter 34 was that Dave wanted a Cub Cadet club but the membership area extended to the southern and mid west states and Canada. Also the club could only have plow days and no other activities.
Denny E. and Joe R. don’t want to see all money from Chapter 34 go back to IH national so they would like to have a granite marker for Dave with a Chapter 34 insignia and stating President and Founder of Chapter 34. Ann is OK with having the cemetery marker put on grave. Cemetery is Windy Hill Cemetery at Rt. 36 S. of Brookville on Sheep Farm Road. Joe and Denny will check on monument dealers in the area. Motion to have marker made by Denny E., 2nd by Mark C. Approved.
