It was noted that Barbara Brown Wilson had taken the oath and had become an honorary member of KAA at this year’s business meeting. Darrell Skinner had also been approved for honorary membership; however, he did not attend the business meeting. He must take the oath at some future meeting in order to become an honorary member. Joe Conley, Braxton County High School Class of 1970, had said that he would take the oath this year but he also did not attend the business meeting.


Margret Willey reported that she had sent out approximately 1,200 invitations to the Alumni Banquet; she had received 235 reservations.


Russell McClain suggested that the KAA lower the price of the banquet. Jimmy Pritt suggested that we review the entire program. He proposed that we meet in September to discuss ideas and asked everyone to prepare a list of suggestions.


Russell McClain commented upon the lack of participation in square dancing as compared with the cost of the band for square dancing. David Parmer reminded us that the restricted parking on the playground and near the school caused by the renovations to the school had played a role in lowering our attendance.


The KAA approved a motion authorizing Russell McClain to reserve the Community Building on behalf of the KAA for the Alumni weekend. [M/s
