The previous month's minutes were read by Alexa Lightner and approved. The treasurer's report was given by Abigail Lightner.

Members discussed the preparations for the Honor Flight Chili Luncheon on Feb. 15. Alexa Lightner and Rebecca Wyatt volunteered to do a project talk at the club's next meeting. The meeting concluded with members tie-dying heart shirts for Valentine's Day.
