Kentucky members and seniors took an active role in the success of the 58th annual Mid-Southern Regional Meeting held in Charleston, West Virginia on June 20-21, 2014. Led by Senior National Vice-President Dena Green and National Vice-President Carter Grace Bagnall, the meeting featured National Board skits and workshops, pizza/ice cream social, pool party, tour of the West Virginia State Museum, banquet, and dance. Kentucky members and seniors served on several committees and were a key to the efficiency of the weekend meeting. Thanks to all for helping chaperone, supervise members, write minutes and resolutions, conduct the silent auction, lead prayers, provide snacks, serve as tour leaders, etc. - you name it, our Kentucky members and seniors were there to help!
Congratulations to National Historian Mitchell Clouse, National Chairman Sandy Humphries, and State President Jordan Hall for their outstanding participation in the skits. Also, a special thank you to Randy Humphries for stepping in as the sound/tech guy, pool party lifeguard, and being our chaplain - you were our "Renaissance Man" for the Mid-Southern Region!
