President Bob Weir called the meeting to order at 1:30 p.m.

Lorna Hainsworth was introduced as a new member of the Philadelphia Chapter.

Bob reported to the membership on a number of matters:

1. The topics covered in the morning Board meeting around the updating of the bylaws. Topics for discussion included:

A. What constitutes a quorum?
B. Should we continue to have meetings in January?
C. How should authorization for disbursement of funds be authorized?
D. How should we indicate the times of the meetings in the bylaws?

2. The formation of a Strategic Planning Committee was announced, with the membership: Boyd Sponaugle, Nancy Davis, Trudy Reed, Anne Mackintosh and Dick Prestholdt.

3. At our March Chapter Meeting the speaker will be Tom Gralish who is a photographer for the Inquirer newspaper. He followed the trail in 2003 and will tell of his experiences and show his photographs.

4. Following these announcements, President Weir introduced our speaker for the afternoon, Dick Prestholdt.

Our member, Dick Prestholdt, dressed as Kentucky recruit Gibson, shared his experiences as a member of the Discovery Expedition of St. Charles. This is a bicentennial reenactment of the journey of the expedition from Elizabeth, Pennsylvania to Ft. Clatsop in Oregon. Dick's photos and account of the journey so far accomplished gave us a clear and intriguing impression of the trip as far as Ft. Mandan.
