Another year of the Southern Utah Rock Club started off with election of officers.  There were no other nominations for officers, nor volunteers, so the slate of officers was approved by unanimous vote.  Congratulations to: President, Eric Vogt; Vice-President, Joe Jenson; Secretary, Lynn Dalton; Treasurer, Glenn Pearson; Iron County Rep, Theron Roberts; and Washington County Rep, Chris Kyser.

Theron has scheduled our first Rock Trip for the year, and will continue to keep the shop open Thursday evenings from 6-8 pm.  Tracy will hold open shop hours the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings from 5-8pm and Joe Jenson will hold open shop hours the 2nd and 4th Wednesday evenings from 5-8 pm.  In addition, Tracy and Jeff Smith will be holding Junior Rock Hound meetings the 3rd Thursday of each month at 5PM. The badge program is just getting started so be sure to sign your Junior up.

Our Thanks to the outgoing officers Tracy Hassett, Joelinda Gordon and Linda Rider.  Your efforts during the past year were very much appreciated.  You made a difference.

Theron gave a slide presentation on the history of SURC.  As he stated in his opening remarks, the club has changed a lot since its inception in 2008.  He had some historic photos I hope he’ll share that we can post here.

Watch the events calendar for meetings, trips, and special projects.  Lynn will be posting on Facebook and Jana will continue to be the webmaster and post here.  If you have items to share don’t hesitate to let her know by posting a comment to this post.

Thanks to all those that renewed their memberships and those that are new to the club.  We’re starting out with 81 adult members and 21 Juniors.  President Vogt stated in his thank you remarks that he’d like to increase membership by 15%.  So sign up your friends and family.  Volunteer to staff the club booth at the Washington County Fair and/or the Tailgater and recruit new members.

It’s going to be a great year – be sure you’re there.
