The first scholarship recipient was approved by the Scholarship Committee. The recipient is Kathryn Higdon. Kathryn was an honor student at Sonora High School, in Sonora, Texas.

The Newsletter was discussed concerning frequency and page numbers. To reduce pressure on our excellent Editor, the Newsletter should be once every two months and the size could be reduced to approximately four to six pages. In addition to reducing some pressure on the Editor, it will also reduce the mailing cost since a Newsletter of the recommended size could be mailed for 37 cents.

David Mudd, the incoming 2004 - 2005, President, reported on a possible location for the 2005 meeting. He recommended the meeting be near Lexington, Kentucky at the Shaker Village. He will be checking on the location availability and will determine a preferred time in September or October.
