HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone!
Oh, by the way, membership dues are due. See Bob Fiero (membership data) and Nancy Bell (treasurer).
And WELCOME new members: Mary Mellgard and Betsy Cotton.
Back in December 2013, we had several events. To start off, we had a “remembering the Viet Nam period” discussion. Several of our Viet Nam era members recounted their experiences, ranging from Viet Nam itself to life in the “states”. Without a doubt, this period was a difficult time for our nation as a whole.
We next had our Christmas/Winter Party at the Crown Plaza. The food was great, the people were great (48 members attended) and our entertainment, provided by our very own “John O” was outstanding. A round of thanks goes to Nancy Bell for arranging this party. Take a look at our web site for several pictures of the festivities.
The following week was our business meeting and election of new officers. The minutes of the last meeting were read by Donna Wardlow and accepted. The Treasurer’s report was read and accepted.
New business: Members were asked to think about paying professional people to provide talks on various subjects. Currently, various people and organizations provide most programs and talks as a “community service”. The feeling by the members is that we should consider this on a case-by-case basis. There was also discussion of having “repeat” organizations presenting their programs, such as fire/home safety, home care, etc. Members indicated this is good, but having more “fun programs” should be included in the schedule. The idea of presenting a small scholarship to a HBHS senior was brought up. Members were asked to give this some thought.
Voting: The slate of officers was presented and voting was taken by secret ballot. Officers elected were:
President: Honi Glover
Vice Present: Donna Wardlow
Secretary: Bob Fiero
Treasurer: Nancy Bell.
Congratulations to your 2014 officers.
