Noninating Committee

The Unit 174 Board has appointed Jane Armstrong as the Nominating Committee Chairperson for the 2015 spring election. The object of this committee is to select 6 candidates to fill 3 positions at the April sectional.

Her committee consists of Bob Dowlen, Dianna Gittelman, Patti Mullendore and Betty Starzec. If you know of anyone, including yourself, expressing interest in running as a candidate, please contact one of us. This board needs individuals who are enthusiastic about improving the experience of this game in our unit. Please share your talents by volunteering to serve in this important position.

Communications Chairperson

I'm sure most of you are unaware of this, but the Unit has a person who sends out letters to all new and transferred in members of the unit, and contacts those who do not renew their membership. It's an important job, and Sandy Clark has done a great job for several years in that position.

But Sandy has decided to 'retire' from her position, so the Unit needs a replacement. If you would consider filling the position, please contact Board President Beverley Cheatham at beverley_cheatham@att.net or 281-444-1300.

Unit 174 Board of Directors Club Connection Program

The Board continued our program to connect with our Unit members and traveled to Aggie Land in October. The Bryan College Station area has several clubs with games nearly every day.

Three of the board members (Beverley Cheatham, Nancy Strohmer, and Bill Riley) and Hans Strohmer played bridge in the Star Duplicate Bridge club at the Pebble Creek Country Club, College Station on Friday October 17th. All had fun and good bridge. The bridge players who are also golfers may have had a hard time concentrating as the day was perfect for golf and view of the golf course from the playing area was spectacular.

The Board plans to visit the Lake Conroe DBC in Montgomery November 21st. Hope to see you there.
