Special Meeting of the Church
Sept 9, 1902
The meeting was called to order by Mr. Moore, acting as Chairman, and Mr. Behre was requested to act as Secretary.
Present were Messrs. St Amand, Langston, Watts, Moore and Behre, Mrs. Moore, Behre, Foster, Langston, Owens and Miss Behre and Miss Ellinor Behre.
Mrs. Langston was called upon to explain the condition of the library; further remarks were heard on the same subject from Mrs. Behre, Mr. Langston and Messrs. Watts and St. Amand.
It was then moved, seconded and carried that the Chairman draft resolutions, changing Section 2, Article 9 of the Constitution, so as to read that new members should constitute a quorum at any meeting of the Church. In view of the fact that this point not being thoroughly understood, the meeting resolved to declare itself an informal session and requested the library committee to get a report together and hand in to a later called meeting of the Church, to decide upon the library conditions, whereupon the meeting adjourned.

Article IX. Section 2 of the constitution reads
“One fourth of the resident members shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.”
But at their last meeting Sept 9, 1902, the board of trustees voted to recommend that the church change that section of the constitution to read as follows:
“(??? Archivist: can not read first word) of the resident members shall constitute a quorum for the transaction of business.”
