The Arcadia Literary Club held its annual business meeting at the lovely home of host Lorraine Mohammadbhoy. Cohostesses Heather Kamberg, Raye Southwell and Darlene Foster welcomed members to Lorraine’s home which was beautifully decorated in a springtime theme with fresh flower arrangements from her personal garden. Refreshments of asparagus and broccoli spears, shrimp ceviche, stuffed red and yellow peppers, oriental salad, walnut chocolate cake, fresh fruit compote and various beverages were offered.
The meeting was called to order by President Laura Amendola who read the quote of the month: “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirates’ loot on Treasure Island … and best of all, you can enjoy these riches everyday of your life,” by Walt Disney. Secretary Raye Southwell read the previous meeting’s minutes and recent correspondence. Treasurer Sally Aldrich gave the treasurer’s report. Muriel Hall, chairperson of the By-Laws and Constitution Committee, gave her committee’s recommendations for revisions to these documents, all of which were approved by the members. Heidi deJong, chairperson of the Membership Committee, gave her report. The Nominating Committee, chaired by Lorraine Mohammadbhoy, offered the slate of new officers for the 2014-2015 year. These new officers were overwhelmingly approved.
