Currents - April/May 2017
Fort Bend is already off to a busy start for 2017! We only made one change during our election of officers during our January meeting. Blake Tumlinson will continue to serve as our Vice president, Robert Oliver as Treasurer and Jim Black as Secretary. Robb Gaston has moved into a supporting role. I, Donnie Powers, will be serving as President. I want to thank everyone for having faith in me (I think – ha ha…).
In February, we held our first General Membership Meeting in quite some time. We would like to thank Steve Onstead and The Swinging Door for hosting the meeting, as well as providing beverages and some very tasty sandwiches for us to munch on. We would also like to thank CCA National President Pat Murray for coming out to speak on the general state of the Organization.
Now we are in the process of finalizing all the details for our 2017 Annual Fort Bend Chapter Banquet coming up on April 20 at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds.
