Thanks to the crew for the Expo. Many thanks to Mary Apt for the extensive work on the flyer.

Joseph Valentinetti pointed out that usually the percentage of members in a group who perform valuable services is low; however, he is happy to note that the majority of our VPC members are active.

SBTV-3 is having considerable problems with their servers so ILW is being filmed in the VPC studio. Bonnie Z will host Taylor White and Sally Glaussen about the upcoming Leisure World Theater Club events. 

The VPC is moved to a new location in Club House 3, Room B. Maintenance will help us move on Friday 4/29 and Monday 5/2. All the members were asked to help in any way they are able.

Joe Osuna reported on the need for microphones for our cameras. He discussed the various microphone and their cost. John Robinson moved to purchase two microphones. Seconded by Richard Houck.

GRF requires that we add a new disclaimer to the beginning of our videos when we use GRF purchased equipment and or the GRF owned studio (Room A Clubhouse 3.This disclaimer is in addition to the Superwire and SBTV-3 disclaimers. Since the required disclaimer is rather long and onerous, it will be discussed with GRF at a later time.
