08 June 2010. This was the last meeting of the 2009-10 year for TSGS. The Officers and Directors who were elected in May were installed for the year 2010-11.
This was the first installation meeting attended by your webmaster, and I seen it as a very thoughtful, meaningful, and somewhat emotional event. Lyn Martin, Willard Library's Special Collections Department (Genealogy & History) TSGS member ex-officio performed the swearing-in ceremony in which, after calling each elected officer's name, directed them to stand before the membership and take the oath of their office. Lyn did a remarkable job, and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank her on behalf of TSGS for all of her support.
The officers sworn in for the one year term were President, John West; Vice President, Doug Korb; Treasurer, Bettie Cook; Recording Secretary, Karin Kirsch; Corresponding Secretary, Sue Hebbeler; Membership Chairman, Don Pierce; Program Chairman, Becky West; and Packet Editor, Brenda Legate.
The directors installed were: Larry Goss, Rena Goss, Janet Mann, Gloria Strott, Mary Lou Bevers and Don Counts.
