About the Outgoing Officers:

The following people worked very hard and served us well during the past year. Many hours were donated in meetings, planning and working toward a fun filled year in 2005: Here are just a few of the contributions made to the SPHC club by our outgoing Officers:

Charlie Mandeville has served the club for at least 4 years! He has put in a lot of hours and sweat to make our parties fun and do it on a budget. He offered his home for happy hours and meetings, stored club merchandise and adopt a highway materials. He cooked and mixed drinks for us on many occasions. Mark Gilmore has served the club at least 3 years. He has been there to help us out and lend a hand whenever we needed him. He has helped with storing club merchandise, kept it organzied and brought it to meetings and parties through the years. He and Karen have opened their home and hosted BOD meetings and parties on numerous occasions. Jamie and Beth Medlin organized the membership information, contacted new members, hosted happy hours at their home, ordered and picked up food for parties and cooked for many parties. Cheryl Howell has served on the BOD for many years. She has always helped in anyway she could. She has sold raffle tickets and, she too, has stored club merchandise and made sure it made it to every party or meeting we had. She has helped set up and cleanup for more parties than I can remember though the years. I hope you will join me in thanking them for their hard work and dedication. Mary
