President Stoney called the meeting to order and asked John Wilson to lead the pledge. Sid Chauvin’s thought for the day was the confusion of one person in a room is multiplied by the number of people in attendance.

Angela Mason has devoted her life to being a voice for suffering children and travels the world on humanitarian missions. Angela has visited countries all over the world. Her focus has become water and sanitation since both affect children greatly in many areas of the world. There is only 3% fresh water in the world. Every 20 seconds a child dies from drinking contaminated water. Water shortage and sanitation are two of the biggest issues that will plague the world for a considerable amount of time.
