Lecturer Georgia Taylor announced the birthday of Janet Vermilyea on the 30th. Peg and Bud Barnes, Marian Schimmel, Dave Taylor and Georgia played several tunes on their instruments and asked the grangers to “name that tune.” Her closing thought was “It is better to know a few things that are true, than to believe a lot of things that are false.”
