Bill asked Kit Cafaro to read the minutes from the last meeting. She had missed the last two meetings because of a knee replacement. She read the minutes from the meeting of February 15 at the East Farmingdale Fire Department that Nate Berry had taken. They were approved as read. Barbara Connolly reported that she took minutes at the March meeting but did not have them with her. She will bring them to the next meeting.

Bill D’Alessandro introduced Micha Schekter of Matco Tools. Everyone went downstairs to see their products on the Big Rigs. He showed the diagnostic software and Matco’s advantage to save the customer money on subscriptions.
