The February 14th 2009 meeting was called to order by Sue McGinty at approximately 10:20 AM after a short wait while Borders set up chairs for us, an old story unfortunately. Four newcomers were in attendance: Katy Keeney of Los Osos, Gizella Miskolczi and Joy of South County, and Steve Attison visiting from Victorville.
Sue called for a board meeting to discuss some of the issues still not resolved from the January planning meeting. All paid members are welcome to attend, but the date will be determined by Karen and Jim Kavanagh's next visit to the Central Coast. Members will be notified via e-mail.
Members were reminded that dues are now past due and to mail their checks for $15 to membership director Susan Tuttle, Po Box 6947 Los Osos, CA 93412-6947. This does not apply to those who paid in the middle of the year. Your dues will be prorated this year so that all can pay in January of 2010.
The March 14th meeting will feature search and rescue expert Mike Oliver. VeeP Victoria Heckman will attempt to book the Morro Bay Library Community room for the event.
Susan Howe introduced our guest speaker, pet and people psychic counselor Suzan Vaughn. She discussed techniques for verbal and non-verbal methods of communication with animals and included many anecdotes of pets and their people who were helped by her gentle and wise counseling. A vigorous question and answer session followed including a reading of Victoria Heckman's cat via a cell phone picture. There are many tips for dealing with pet behaviors and problems on her website: www.telepathictalk.com. To book a session with Susan e-mail her at: email@example.com
The meeting was completed at 11:30 AM and a no-host lunch at Upper Crust followed.
