The regularly scheduled bi-monthly meeting of the club was held at
Ryan's Steakhouse in Lumberton at 7 pm on Wednesday, 8/15. Members
present included: President Marshall Thompson and his wife,
Treasurer Charlotte Thompson; Vice President Don Meece and his wife
Sandi; Secretary Jim McDermott and his wife Mary Ann; Frank and
Katie Dupin; Rudolph and Betty Floyd; and Omer Register.
The Treasurer reported a current balance of $1,464.52 in the
club account not counting dues collected at the meeting. This led to
a discussion of how much we charge in dues. After extensive debate
and in consideration of the current economy, it was decided to roll
back dues to $10 per year per family. This level will also mean that
mailouts of hard copy newsletters will be resticted to those without
computer access to the club website
. Those who wish
to continue receiving mailed newsletters should contact a club
officer, otherwise mailings will stop at the start of next year.
The club Christmas Party will be held again at Riverway in
Lumberton on December 13 at 4 pm. An optional paddle-in will leave
MacMillan's Beach on the Lumber River at 11 am for the float to
Riverway. Those planning to attend should contact Charlotte Thompson
(910-521-9321) who will coordinate covered dishes. Contact Jim
McDermott (910-630-6076) if you plan to paddle in to the party.
The meeting proposed and elected a new slate of officers to
serve through 2010 as follows:
President Don Meece
Vice President Omer Register
Treasurer Charlotte Thompson
Secretary Marshall Thompson
