Friends of the Samuel May House met for their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, November 26, 2002. The Minutes of the October 29, 2002, meeting had been mailed and emailed to members. Mr. Hatcher asked if there were any additions or deletions that needed to be made to them. There being none, the Minutes stood approved as presented.

In the absence of David Hereford, Mr. Hatcher presented the Treasurer's Report. The General Fund balance as of November 12th was $5,041.03 with no major expenditures. There had been several donations to the House as well as the selling of several of our books to the different tour groups that had came to tour the house during September and October. There being no additions or deletions regarding the report, it stood approved as presented.

Mr. Hatcher informed the group that one of the trustees, Marshall Davidson had fallen and broken his leg. He is currently at Highland Regional Medical Center in Prestonsburg.

As an item of Old Business, Mr. Hatcher stated that he was still trying to find someone who could install the dead bolts for us reasonably.

Mr. Hatcher reported that on Sunday, December 8, there would be a group coming to tour the house. All members who could be present to help would be appreciated.

A discussion was then held in regard to the books that the May House have on hand for sale.
