✑Business: At the February 1st meeting the assembled group acknowledged that the Society should have minimal administrative structure in place so that the Society can conduct simple business. On February 28, Leonard Schwab, Gene Lynch, John Hirtle, and Karen Mason met. Gene agreed to serve as Treasurer, Leonard and Karen will continue as facilitators, and John will continue as technical advisor to the Society. All will fulfill these duties through June 2018 when the Society can discuss organization for the future. Activity since the February 28 meeting of the four: the Society has a P.O. Box; a website; and an account in which to deposit dues and donations received. The box rental for six months came to $60. The website cost $48. The rental of the post box (size 2) and purchase of the website was covered by the $210 in dues and donations which has been collected since October 12, 2017. Gene will deposit monies. John advised and Leonard took the first step in creating a site on WordPress.org which ultimately will serve as a portal to all Greenland history the Society collects and scans, beginning with Paul F. Hughes’ work, A Pleasant, Abiding Place.
