2009 March Meetings Minutes

We are proud to have Jim H. representing area 22 at the Frontier Division Table Topics Contest on Friday, March 27 at Jimmy's in Vadnais Heights.

Jim H. took second place and had no problem answering the following question:
"If you could write something that would change the world, what would it be?"
Most of the contestants struggled with this one.

Many thanks to Jim's wife and Stuart H. for attending the Division Contests and giving support to Jim!

Congratulation Jim! Way to go!
