Minutes of the October 22, 1999 meeting of the Tampa Chapter SAR


The meeting was held in conjunction with the Fort Brooks Chapter of the CAR at Lettuce Lake Park.


President Yarnell called the meeting to order at 11:30. Chaplain Jim Washburn gave the invocation and the CAR members led the pledge to the flag. The CAR members recited their pledge then President Yarnell let the pledge to the SAR.


We enjoyed an excellent turnout. Members present: Dwight Tetrick, Elwin Thrasher, Jim Chambers, Marty Miller, Robert Yarnell, Jim Washburn, Barry Rich, Ted Dickerson, and Kevin Yarnell

Welcome guests: Janett Tetrick, June Dickerson, Jack and June Bowen.

The CAR had seven members and advisors present.


The membership approved the minutes of the Sept meeting as published in the newsletter.

The secretary had no other news to report.

Treasurer Marty Miller verified the financial solvency of the chapter.

A Board of Governors meeting was set for Nov. 4th at 7:00 at Tampa Catholic High School.


The CAR made a brief presentation concerning their national project to mount tiered lights to the steeple of the old North Church in Boston. At present the steeple is inadequately lighted for adjacent buildings. The CAR state project is the Randell Research and Education Center. The youth presented the purpose of this center and why they choose to help in its support.


The CAR concluded their time by quizzing the SAR membership with trivia questions concerning the United States Flag. I am pleased to report that the assembled membership acquitted themselves very well missing only a few of the questions.


The meeting adjourned for an excellent picnic lunch.


President Yarnell reconvened the meeting and the various groups tackled a Florida History Knowledge puzzle.


No 50/50 drawing was held. The meeting adjourned.


Respectfully submitted,


Kevin Yarnell

Chapter Secretary
