2009 FoB Annual Meeting
To the Friends of Barboursville:
The FoB annual meeting and picnic on July 26th was a great success. After hearing repeated warnings of afternoon thunderstorms, we considered canceling the picnic but decided to press on. And what a great decision that was as the weather could not have been better!
Pressing on was Clara’s greatest achievement as our president. The hardest thing to do is keep alive an organization that was founded on a cause. When the cause ends, everyone loses interest. We all owe Clara a BIG, BIG thank you!
At the picnic, we elected two new board members, Bryan Wright and John Floyd, to replace Clara Colby and Julie Floyd. In addition to being a board member, Julie was also our treasurer. Fortunately, she has agreed to remain our treasurer. Other new officers are: Beth Nichols, President; John Floyd, Administrative Vice President; Laura Peterson, Vice President for Preservation; and Row Halpin, Secretary.
I am looking forward to a good year as your president and hope to see everyone at the grand opening of the new post office!
