The meeting was called to order by President Jackson with prayer.
This was the first meeting after the All Classes/Reunion Convention held in July. Due to this being an informal meeting, the usual agenda was not followed.
The treasurer’s report was given by Louis Ray. The Association is in good financial standing.
The minutes from the Convention were not read but were received by the President. The Convention Chairperson, Dora Duncan, resigned effective immediately. There was a period set aside for brainstorming for the coming year’s activities. Many suggestions were received and written down for discussion at the next meeting. This year, the Convention will be managed by the entire Board as a team. Bobby J. Brown, Vice President will coordinate this activity. We will look into having a “family plan” rate for the Convention. Thank you letters will be sent to all who placed ads in the souvenir booklet. The addresses site will be updated as soon as correct addresses can be located.
The Board decided to participate in the Rice Festival this year by entering a decorated vehicle and sponsor a young lady to run for the Rice Festival Queen. In this way, we will be giving back to the community and inspiring young people to become a vital part of the Association.
The next meeting will be held on October 9, 2010 due to preparations for the Rice Festival. The meeting was adjourned with prayer.
