Fairfax Sorosis members met March 5, 2018, at the Fairfax Methodist Church where they enjoyed an informational presentation by Fairfax R-3 Superintendent Dr. Jeremy Burright. Dr. Burright shared facts about the proposed school levy that will soon appear at the voting booth for the Fairfax School District.
Following the guest speaker’s visit, President Judy Holtz called the business meeting to order. Seven members answered roll call to “My best year or years in school”. Barb Jones, chair of the nominating committee, presented a slate of officers for the coming year: President – Debbie Johnson; Vice-President – Carolyn Pyeatt; Recording Secretary – Leona Ray; and Corresponding Secretary/Treasurer – Pam Cooper. The slate was accepted. Discussion was held concerning the meeting dates due to cancellation of January meetings this year and in previous years.
President-elect Debbie Johnson announced the appointed positions for the coming year: Program planning committee – Leona Ray, Georgia Gilley and Debbie Johnson; Social committee – Carolyn Pyeatt, Pam Cooper and Barb Jones; Nominating committee – Georgia Gilley, Carolyn Pyeatt, and Judy Holtz; Critic – Judy Holtz; and Historian/music – Georgia Gilley and Betty Wennihan. Barb Jones was hostess.
The next meeting will be a salad luncheon at the church on March 19 at 12:00.
