December 2022 Meeting Minutes
Andy and Cathy Vaughn hosted the December, 2022 B.A.S.H. meeting on Sunday the 11th at their home in Corpus Christi. The weather was beautiful, we sat outside and most attendees were in shorts. Santa hats, reindeer antlers, Grinch shirts and ugly sweaters were in abundance.
President Vic Aguilar called the meeting to order, thanked our hosts and welcomed new members Don and Karen Pierpoint. Treasurer Walt Crawford reported that all is well with the club treasury.
