With no other business meeting was adjourned with Linda’s quote of the week.
“Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage”.
And our Chapter Motto: IF IT IS TO BE IT IS UP TO ME.
