COMRADE IN DISTRESS:  Cootie Ransom is still under medical care. Cootie Reyes is currently recovering at home with some medical issues.


COMMITTEE REPORTS:  We had been informed, for the upcoming term, that we will need to elect an assistant CCDB.  This will be discussed at our next Scratch on 14 March 2023. More discussion will be needed on this because we all agreed that this was too much for us to absorb in one discussion.  We will try again next Scratch.
