Our next meeting will be on May 20, 2017 at The OAKS in Manchester, TN at 12:00. The address is I-24 Exit 110; 947 Interstate Drive, Manchester, TN 37355. The phone number is 931-728-5777. Hope to see everyone there. We miss you when you are not in attendance. We have a lot to discuss and we need your input. Everyone please say hello to our newest members to the club, Franet and Richard Hazard from Rickman, TN. I personally want to say Thank you for joining our group. If I can ever be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to ask. Our last meeting was on March 18, 2017, we had eighteen members present. The members who were present include Dr. Patricia Graham, Linda Boyce, Terri Aubin, Paula Hill, Dwain Hughes, Paul Tucker, Lee Tucker, Roger Fitch, Susie Fitch, Franet Hazard, Richard Hazard, Teresa Burton, Amanda Burton, David Elliot, Donna Elliot, Johnney Fielder (Visitor), Cathy Bradford, and Shelby Bradford. Thanks to everyone who came to the meeting and for your valuable input.A MESSAGE FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH The Club’s Annual show was held on April 7 and 8, 2017 at the Calsonic Arena in Shelbyville. There were a few new exhibitors this year and a lot of returning friends. We had several Club members work the Show---- Jennifer, Dwain, Larry Vick and his grandson Houston, Patricia, Theresa, Susie and John Hicks. Thanks to each one who pitched in and made the Show work. I have attached a Copy of the Show Results for 2017. You will see that we lost $3,646. This is net of a very successful Silent Auction that netted $482. This is the first loss in a couple of years. There were several Exhibitors that were unable to attend this year due to their personal issues that had nothing to do with the Club, the location or the dates of the Show. Your Club Officers (Dwain, Patricia, Jennifer and myself) worked closely with Dixi to restructure the Show to make it a 2 day Show and reduce expenses. I appreciate each Officer’s efforts to restructure and work the Show. As the club looks towards the 2018 Show there are several issues to consider, such as: 1) another 2 day Show; 2) change of dates; 3) change of location; 4) AMHR Show only???? The next Club meeting is May 20th at the Oak in Manchester. I hope to see everyone there. We need to make some decision about the 4H Club options and also, consider a summer Fun Show for Club members. AGAIN, let me say a GREAT BIG THANKS to all who helped to make this year’s Show work. I hope to see everyone at the Oak at Noon CST on the 20th of May. Roger.
