The program for the May meeting will be a short overview of LaBelle’s Annual Black Heritage Festival held in May and ending with activities at Alton “Kid” Jones Park in the Ford/Sunset Park Community.
The major item will be election of officers for the 2013/2014 LaBelle Heritage Museum Program Year. President Joe Thomas and vice-president Elinor Jones have announced their candidacy for election to another one-year term. Director Lynda Rider-Smith is a candidate for a three-year term as director. Directors Irene Doub’s and Addison Austin’s seats are not up for election this year. The nominating committee, headed by Sara Townsend [675-0125], will present its slate of candidates — that also includes Martha Ratliff and Ron Zimmerly as nominees for secretary and treasurer resectively — at the meeting. Nominations from the floor will be in order if the nominee agrees in advance to serve if elected.
Only members whose dues are current will be permitted to vote. Dues may be paid that evening before the start of the business meeting.
Incoming officers and director will be installed at a potluck dinner at LaBelle Heritage Museum on Thursday, May 30, at 6 o’clock. Those attending are asked to bring a dish – entree, casserole, vegetable, salad, hors d’oeuvres, or dessert — to feed themselves and four others.
