The Annual Meeting of the RomeRock Association took place on Saturday, April 27th. The meeting was well attended with almost every seat in the Clubhouse filled.
Members who attended learned the results of the election, the state of the Association, listened to reports from the Association’s many clubs and committees, heard the Association’s plans for the future, and took the time to address their comments and concerns to the Board. After the meeting, attendees enjoyed pizza from Paradise Bay and cookies from Cantini’s.
The results of the election were:
- Rick Brothers – 220
- Cheryl Fain – 226
- Jack McMillin – 118
- Nadine Pope – 249
Rick Brothers retained his seat on the Board and is joined by newcomers, Cheryl Fain and Nadine Pope. Congratulations!
Thank you for your service to the Association, Jack!
