On February 17, 2019, the members of the Camel 24 Fellowship, Incorporated, elected by ballot, officers for 2019. The newly elected slate of officers were installed and took their seats to serve the fellowship:
President: Ray Byrd
Vice-President: Kit Gross
Secretary: Clay Cutbush
Treasurer: Rick Rowland
Member Representative: Dale Scales
Member Representative: Jimmy Myrick
Advisory Board, Chairperson: Beth Soule
The new board held their initial meeting to begin discussing plans for the upcoming year. Ray Byrd conveyed some plans and objectives for the year some of which include an early start on planning and implementing ideas for our biggest fund raiser, the annual golf tournament, which this year will be held in October. Ray also wants to continue holding Membership Drive cookouts periodically to be sure we keep our dues paying members’ numbers over the 100 mark, which we have sustained for the past two years.
The board voted in December 2018 to review and update the Fellowship’s By-Laws, which were drawn up when the club was first organized, to reflect the changes that have naturally transpired over the years. A committee, including board members and dues paying members-at-large, has been formed to propose revisions and/or modifications to the By-Laws and present them to the Board for approval. Once approved, we will be reaching out to our dues paying members to ratify the recommended changes.
My hope as Vice-President is to serve the Fellowship, and encourage more members to participate in the vision for the Camel 24 Fellowship as we move forward and help to continue to provide and preserve a safe environment to advance the Spiritual, Mental and Physical welfare of the recovering community. All members are welcome to attend board meetings, held every third Sunday of the month at 2:00 pm in the meeting room at the club. The next scheduled meeting is at 2:00 pm on Sunday, March 17, 2019 . Hope you’ll join us and see what the board is planning and how you can become involved.

The “Message from the Board’ is a new addition to our web site. This year I’ll be sending messages to better communicate with the membership from time to time as well as, report on the board’s activity. Come “join us on the Broad Highway” and help to “carry the message!”
Kit Gross, Vice-President
