Renae then discussed the current boards time was coming to an end. Lynette Clemmons and Jackie Dye are on the nominating committee. Please think about stepping up to continue leading the club.
Renae had 3 goals as President:
1. Stock a food pantry
2. Feed first responders
3. Continue the tradition of previous administration and purchase a bench for the neighborhood.
This was done with everyone’s agreement and help. Your new board can choose your vision and bring us all on board.
Renae read the very nice thank you card from Asbury Church. With all of the members help, we donated the most items to the food pantry than anyone ever has. Thank you ladies for your generosity!
