9: Presidential Comments

– All of us are loved and do a lot of work for the chapter.  There is life out of JCI, so we need to take a break from JCI stuff sometimes; “you (personal/mental health) time” is very important.

10: Adjournment @ 8:16pm – 1st by J. Cole-Harris; 2nd by Arnold; Motion carries.

11: Creed

We believe:

That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;

That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;

That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;

That government should be of laws rather than of men;

That earth’s great treasure lies in human personality; and

That service to humanity is the best work of life.
