*Gail informs commission that plots 521,522,577,578,579 & 580 should not be sold until the register is checked.
*Debby makes suggestion that deeds are now duplicated and a copy is kept on file with the commission. That this will provide easier access and the ledger does not have to constantly be disturbed.
*Gail informs commission that plots 529 & 530 were sold to Ellen McGrath. Plots were paid for with ck #9732 in the amount of $1,000.00.
