SOS explores options for new board

BY Sara Barker - sbarker@chronicle-tribune.com

At a lull in the year, Save our Stories is looking ahead by planning new events.

In October, SOS plans to host a gala-like event at the train station in order to raise money for the Quilter’s Hall of Fame. SOS president Dave Homer said he is still talking with John Devine of Quilters about the date, food and entertainment for the fundraiser.

The next order of business for SOS, though, is changing hands in executive board members.

The founding members of SOS are in executive positions, so opening nominations would mean naming those who would be the first successors.

Bill Munn, the current SOS vice president, will take over the role of president, currently held by Homer.

At its Tuesday meeting, SOS wrote down names of people they would like to consider for the vice president position. They will then invite SOS members to a gathering, possibly at the Masonic Temple.

Then, Homer and Munn will personally extend an invitation to those people on the list to apply for an executive board position.

Members agreed to discuss nominations for vice president and other future open positions at the next meeting. The current board decided not to replace all executive members at the same time in order to continue work that had been done in years past.

A new vice president should be installed by January 2019, SOS secretary Sue Bratton confirmed.

There were no updates on the property at 506 S. Boots St., which SOS is interested in finding funds to renovate and looking into a state marker for the property.

SOS will meet again Aug. 14 at 6 p.m.
