The STL Crew will provide an outline/guidelines to subsequent reunion hosts of how they prepared for the reunion.
We discussed finding the perfect balance between driving early registration and increasing late fees. We will add a discussion mechanism to the website for family input on how best to continue forward.

This year (2019), there were no recipients of the scholarship. There was a motion that passed to award (2) scholarships next year, and continue with awarding (1) per year going forward.
Commitments to fund the next few years were restated.
