Our C.A.R.B. general membership meeting was well attended Saturday night December 14th, 2013, the 2014 officers and board of directors were elected, voting for Hall of Fame and Museum changes was held, bowlathon still has a few openings, need helpers and ideas on a float for Snake Saturday and Race On kids games, needing someone to be chairman of the yellow pages portion of the roster for our business sponsors or it will not happen. Contact Jamie Powell. It was great seeing everybody in attendance and the hospitality treats were outstanding! If you missed it, mark your calendar for January 11th, 2014. This will be a night for installing 2014 officers, board of directors, sergeant-at-arms, and appointed positions. Last night we wished everyone a Merry Christmas, to be safe during the holidays in your travels, remember those who have lost loved ones, and remember those who are dealing with health issues.
