Under new business, Jones read a letter from Roberta Boggs resigning as second vice president. Linda Sartor made a motion to elect Jackie Fout to serve in the position. The motion was seconded and passed by members. It was also discussed under new business the goal of helping our school children with school supplies. Last year we, as a community, served 800 children and would like to serve 1,000 this year. It was decided that Kilgore Woman’s Club would give $200 from the treasury and also give a love offering.
Sistrunk spoke about feeding the actors for the Shakespeare Festival.
Jones recognized and thanked her executive officers with a note and a beautiful charm or ring box. She also recognized all committee chairmen. Jones also recognized Peggy Bowne for the installation of officers. Bowne explained that a club is like a good meal -- it takes planning, preparation, and tools of the office. She concluded the installation by giving each new officer a spatula to help spread the work, the love, and the goodness of our club to all.
