Some small bits of business were brought up for thought. The cost of
singing space is getting very high. Don Wiley suggested we think
about singing once a year instead of twice, if the rent is going to be
a continung problem.
Since we have not used the New Harp of Columbia in the last few years, we decided to drop it from the list of books for this singing.
Zack Allen brought several paper bound advance copies of the Walker Book reprint for us to look at. He expects to have books available in early November.

The Etowah Lions Club Building is a nice singing space. It would be nice to sing here again in the spring.
