Thursday, November 13th at Hanging Rock State Park

  Visitor Center - 5:30 - social hour - 6:30 - business meeting

  Join us for our FSM Annual Meeting.  Come early to socialize and enjoy light refreshments.  Our Secretary and Treasurer will be set up in the lobby to register members for a drawing and receive renewals for your 2015 membership.  All the art work from Reach the Peaks is on display in the auditorium.  You might just find something you would like to buy.  We receive a share of the proceeds from sales of the art work.

  We received a gift recently of three outstanding photo prints.  There are two of Pilot Mountain, one 11" x 16" and one 20" x 30".  We will conduct a silent auction of these.  Another 11" x 16" print of a Hanging Rock waterfall will go home with a lucky member from a drawing.

  Our program for the evening will be presented primarily by Superintendent Robin Riddlebarger on the recent addition to the park of Vade Mecum and Moores Spring properties.  Accompanied by a slide show of recent photos Robin will discuss plans for the property, point out unique features and facilities, discuss our volunteer efforts to assist in bringing these online and incorporating them into the park.  Hopefully our volunteer coordinators Debbie Vaden and Janis Henderson-Hunsucker will also be on hand to sign up volunteers for upcoming workdays.

  President Jay Young will give a brief report and review of the year's activities long with a couple of important announcements.  Treasurer Jim Plant will provide a financial report.  The Audit Committee will conduct the election of officers.  The nominated slate is as follows:

Jay Young               --        President
Harry Wilson            --       Vice President
Kelley Gerstenmier  --        Secretary             
Jim Plant                  --       Treasurer            

  We have come a long way since we organized just four years ago and you are part of that success.  Come out and join us in the celebration on the 13th.  We hope to have a couple of surprises for you too.
  Jay Young
