More reports and Passing the Gavel at the June "end of the year" meeting

The June meeting via Zoom was informative. Cathy Shumard will be modernizing the website with a more mobile-friendly design, burgundy and turquoise colors and member portal updates. Carolyn Hartman has done a wonderful job on publicity these past few years but is stepping down. This is a fascinating and very important job. Carolyn has documented every step so it will be easy to follow. Ruth McLeod encouraged everyone to send her pictures over the summer of any meetings, history trips, Tastes & Treasures II adventures, and travels for Social Media. Anne Lupica announced the December 8 Phoenix Theatre fundraiser "Million Dollar Quartet" with dinner at Phoenix Country Club. Nancy Evans and Mary Parker will assist with the planning of this Christmas-themed musical.
The tradition of passing the gavel was a joyous one on Zoom. After 2 very industrious years as President, Susan Dale handed over the responsibilities to Claire Nullmeyer who is looking forward to her time as President. Also at the June meeting, it was announced that Norma Jean will be the new recording secretary. Mariamne Moore talked about new members. Susan Howard gave the financial report and corresponding secretary Bonnie Newhoff gave an update.
