The Down East Seniors Club held its May 30 meeting at the Blind Center of North Carolina in Washington. President Chip Ide led the meeting. Jim Hackney played for the singing of “God Bless America,” followed by the Pledge of Allegiance. Polk Culpepper gave the invocation, and Ed Hamrick read factoids for the date in history.

Ide announced that, due to health problems and other personal issues, he will be turning leadership of the club over to Vice President Gary Brinn. Then the membership had an in-depth discussion of the aims and direction of the club going forward.

Pat Griffin won the 50/50 drawing.
