John Miller then conducted the election of the 2022 board members. Current Board members Larry Claus, Pat Custer, Jeannie Gore, Mary Mitchell, and Alicia Robles were reelected to two-year terms, to expire in 2024 (Larry Gardner 1st, Melissa Creston 2nd). New director Beth Patten-Bailey was nominated from the floor and elected for a one-year term per our bylaws (Jeannie Gore 1st, Mary Mitchell 2nd). The following slate of officers for 2022 was approved as presented (Melissa Creston 1st, Mary Magyar 2nd): President Jeannie Gore, Vice President Alicia Robles, Treasurer Mary Mitchell, and Secretary Pat Custer.

As outgoing president, John Miller then adjourned the business meeting. Larry Claus introduced our speaker, Larry Michaels, who gave an interesting presentation titled Bellevue, Then and Now. Following the speaker, Jeannie Gore raffled off the door prize which was a Bellevue plaque that had been purchased from the Firelands Historical Society and donated by one of our members, Rita Dever.
